I am home after leaving my compatriots to fend for themselves. I am home with my adorable dog Tucker and my sisters two dogs for the weekend. The one picture is of all of us relaxing (sort of) and the … Continue reading
If we’d thought of it, it might have been fun to count CEMETERIES as we passed them, since many seem to be located in the outskirts where we ride. In the southernmost states, we could spot them from miles away … Continue reading
It’s been fun seeing all the decorated houses!
… even drawing a sketchy map (emphasis on “sketchy” … no words, only lines!)
Who knows what we will encounter along the way … here is an example of an unexpected event: “Road Closed” …. sometimes we can walk our bikes, or even ride our bikes; sometimes not. However, for Carol it may mean … Continue reading

Frequently we see (live) animal life on the roads, and many times we take pity and usher such friends to the side. Here Jane came upon a beautiful turtle and void of anything better to coax the turtle along, she … Continue reading
We spent the night at a fantastic park there then returned to Kentucky the following morning to continue our trek northward. The ferry ride was only about 15 minutes long.
