Our Grand Adventure Begins

Packed and ready to go!

Packed and ready to go!

It’s hard to believe, after all the planning the time has come and we have finally departed on our long awaited trip out to the Western USA.

Our first day was an easy one, with an overnight at Jerry and Linda’s.  Jerry is  a very good friend and former coworker of Leonard’s who has a lovely cabin in a fly-in community in north Florida. IMG_0455

We met the neighbors and enjoyed Happy Hour at Jack and Karen’s,  where Leonard played the banjo.   It was a full moon and we slept to the sounds of the whippoorwill.  Such a tranquil setting and we enjoyed it thoroughly.    Jerry and Linda sent us on our way after a hearty breakfast and we started counting down the miles as we headed west.

  1. That’s one designer cabin! Are we going to see welcome signs for every state?

  2. Great Blog! Nice way for all of us to keep track of your progress. Did you find a hose clamp?
    Have you found any Minnows?

    • LOL! After about 15 more minutes of messing around with that clamp, I finally figured out how it is supposed to work. All that aerospace experience paid off once again! 😉 No joy on the Minnows 🙂

  3. Love that Vixen. Very interesting links about the Flagler railroad. Can you imagine what it was like to have no idea of the hurricane on the way? Looking forward to more states and adventures until I catch up to you.

      Hi Mike! Glad you enjoyed the Vixen and the railroad stuff. Every time the it got stormy and the wind picked up, back then, you had to wonder it a big storm was coming. See you soon!!
