Welcome to our Adventure...

We packed up the kids, dog and the trailer and headed out for adventure, learning and helping others. During our adventure we will try to update this site as often as possible to keep everyone interested involved in our travels and to keep a journal for ourselves. The plan is to be working, schooling, helping and sharing on the road for a year.
Please feel free to post comments and questions! Thanks for following!

Fair weather

Well no visit from Sandy last night where we were staying. There was a little bit of wind but nothing any worse than other spots we have camped out without hurricanes being near by.

We searched around for a church nearby that might have space or a close by place to park our RV while we attended but could not find one so decided we would follow Pastor Mike's sermon notes in the car. We got the trailer all ready for travel including sweeping all of the pine needles off. The needles are alot like LodgePole pine needles and get stuck in the windshield area, the awning and even inside our roof vents in the trailer so they require a little extra time clean up wise.

After a quick tire air fill and gas-up we were on the road to our next location. The drive today was under three hours and the weather the whole drive was beautiful. When we got to our next campground (Jolly Acres RV Park and Storage) it was 73 degrees out. The campground is a great place, nicely taken care of and with our Passport America discount we are under $18 a night for full hookups which is a  GREAT deal! The only problem is that the Verizon service here is spotty and their Internet for the park is really slow so we are not sure how long we can stay.

When we checked in I asked the manager what was in the area that we should not miss and she mentioned that there was a fair going on. Based on the size of the town I figured a nice little county type fair so we packed back into the car and drove to the fair.

When we got there we realized this was more like a state fair with the number of cars that were waiting to park and were already parked. After getting to our parking space, we got tickets and entered. We decided that lunch would be at the fair so we got some OK BBQ sandwiches followed in a bit by an Elephant Ear we all split.

The fair was nice and we got to see animals, lots of people, a petting zoo, lots of people, a lumberjack demonstration, lots of people and at the end of our visit a hypnotist (followed by lots of people on the way out.)

Brighton seems to be drawn to stage acts so the hypnotist was really something he wanted to do. The act was funny (not sure I believe that they were not all paid actors) and everyone seemed to have a good time. Ben was sick today so he slept most of the way to the new campground and again on the way home from the fair. Hopefully he feels better tomorrow.

When we got back to our "home" we decided that we would probably need to move on tomorrow due to the Internet and find another spot. So it looks like up early and driving a couple of hours south tomorrow into Georgia for a better WIFI/Verizon spot.


  1. What is the animal with the big hump on his back? So relieved you guys are not in the middle of that hurricane!!!

  2. It is some kind of steer. I forgot whether it was Asian or African. :(
