Just a quick note to let you all know that we arrived safely in Camden around 5:30 this afternoon.  The last day on the road went well.  After leaving Birmingham, we found ourselves in a BUNCH of traffic.  It finally dawned on us that we were in the middle of  “game day” traffic.  Not sure […]

take me home, country roads

November 20, 2009

Not much to tell about today.  We left Shallotte (pronounced shall-ott’) at a pretty reasonable hour after we spent a half hour watching an egret fish for crawfish in the motel parking lot.  Sadly, that was probably the highlight of our day.   Mary and I both wanted to see Myrtle Beach… in the daylight.  So that’s […]

still in North Carolina

November 19, 2009

Yea, we got a really early start this morning.  Spent lots of time in the car today.  We left out of Nags Head in a southwesterly direction – actually more south than west.  We were going to hit Cape Hatteras and catch a ferry but found out I should have made reservations at least a month […]

what a day!!!

November 18, 2009

A wonderfully, fantastic day!  We slept in a little later and then headed out I-64 south to Newport News, VA where we picked up US168/158 to Nags Head, NC.  The drive was superb.  Not sure why, but so many of the leaves were still in place…  lots of yellow, deep reds, oranges, etc.  It was […]

Tuesday started a little late.  Not sure why – I think I forgot about the time change or something.  And it was a bit cool – so no top down this morning.  Even missed out on the fruit and muffins at the motel so figured we would head on to the first “food” stop. A […]

2 late again…

Just back from the concert and it was FANTASTIC!!  But it’s too late to blog tonight.  Tune in tomorrow for the tale of “cheeseburgers in paradise”.  Night all!

day of the “P”s

November 17, 2009

You all know how much I love riding my motorcycle.  I’ve got to tell you that our mode of travel on this trip is second only to that!  Twice now, we have started our day with the top down (no, not off!), gray hair blowing in the wind, listening to Radio Margaritaville or 70’s music on […]

too late!!!

November 17, 2009

It is after midnite and we just got to our room.  Too late to blog tonight.  Check back about 10:00 tomorrow morning and I’ll tell you all about the day of the “P”s!

Blastoff to Virginia

November 15, 2009

Hey Everybody…  here we are, back on the road again.  This time in a cage (that’s a 4 wheeled vehicle to you non- bikers).  I wasn’t going to blog this trip but since I’m already set up, I figured “what the heck!”. Destination:  Charlottesville, VA Event:  Jimmy Buffet Concert Reason:  Mary’s Birthday We left Camden […]
