The Start-Adventure Travels

Bill on top of a peak on Hanging Rock in Stokes County, NC

We have turned a new chapter in our lives.  Two things happened this past August, 2013.  Our first grandchild was born and we came out from under “work” obligations (we owned rental properties).  We are so blessed that these two things happened at the same time and in fact, have to give Glory to God as it all was really a miracle!

So we now had a dilemma, our grand baby boy is over 800 miles from our home.   Bill is now ready to enjoy the retirement we planned for many years ago and enjoy our grand baby.  We want to travel.  So we have bought a 5th Wheel and now take our home with us wherever we go, which includes frequent visits with him!

We are now both in our sixties (just barely) and we see a need for Adventure Travel columns or blogs to help us along.  We actually subscribe to a few and decided we would add our own flavor.  Maybe we can inspire someone else.  We welcome comments, questions and individual contact.

To start this, I decided to go ahead and make this as a “home page” and then link all our travels in separate pages so you can see where we’ve been and what we find fascinating to do in each town or community we visit.  We will intersperse this with pictures and info on the growth of our grand baby as long as his parents allow us!

Here is our travel list itinerary to date.  And as I complete the pages to accompany each one, I will link it to a new page with the new locations.  See # 1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #16, #18, #22 and # 23 for current links.
