August 17 – Looks like we settled on travel plans, at least through the Christmas holidays. We plan on leaving Ohio mid-September heading for Gettysburg, PA. We'll enjoy the history of the Civil War and meet up with some friends before heading a short distance down the road to Baltimore, MD.


We'll enjoy the Baltimore waterfront and Annapolis, MD, and then turn south. We want to stop in Richmond, VA, to see the state capital, and the rest of the city before moving down to Charleston, SC. There's a lot to see and do in Charleston so we'll be there about a week.


After Charleston, it's on to Florida. We'll stop in Jacksonville for a quick visit and then to Fort Walton Beach, FL, for some relaxation time on the beach.


We'll make our usual stop at the Silver Slipper Casino CG on our way through Mississippi to enjoy some additional beach time and hopefully win a bunch of money! This may be our last stop here because the once reasonable price is beginning to suffer from price creep! It is a wonderful CG – right on the beach!

Then it's on to Betty's RV in Abbeville, LA, to enjoy some Cajun lifestyle. They've had significant flooding recently so we'll be sure to check it out before stopping. We stopped at Betty's back in May 2010 and would like to return to some of the zydeco bars and other sights we visited in the past.

We'll bypass Houston temporarily for a quick visit to San Antonio and Austin. We've visited these cities before we started full timing. We want to revisit some of the neat places in each of these two cities and explore some new areas.


We will then return to Houston to spend Thanksgiving with our daughter, Carrie, before heading to Arizona for the winter.

As the saying goes.....This is written in Jell-O and subject to change. At least we know which way to turn when we pull out of the driveway.

That's it for now. If you have any suggestions or “not to miss” adventures along our route, drop us a note and let us know. Travel safe and we hope to see many of our friends in Arizona this winter.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
