Back in January I made a post about Chuck’s plan to ride his bicycle over 3,100 miles from FL to CA with Bob, a local cycling buddy of his. Because it seems that we can never travel without blogging about it, there is now a website / blog dedicated to Chuck & Bob’s Excellent Adventure. […]

Happy Father’s Day

Old Friends

We arrived in Chimacum, WA hoping to get out of the rain. HA! We did have a couple of sunny days, but the rain just doesn’t want to stop. On the brighter side of things, we met up with an ‘RV Gypsy‘ friend, Robert Streett, today and the sun came out just long enough for […]

Wow. We didn’t know that until we got […]
