2017 Travel Update

Well we have been on the road for quite a while and this is the first time I have been able to post anything on our web site. Mostly that is because we seldom have decent Internet service. Today we are at a KOA in Amarillo Texas. We have been here for three days and will stay for one more.

We left Orlando on Memorial day and our first stop was Suwannee River State Park near Live Oak Fl. We only were there for one night and then on to one of our Thousand Trails sites near Greenville, SC. 

We attended our grandson Robert Carey’s HS graduation and then left for the West.

It has been a good trip until a little after leaving Tennessee. I had hiked about 6 miles there through some dense woods (at times) and I ended up with 20 Tick bites. At first I just put some local anti-itch creams on the bites but yesterday one of the bites infected so we found a good ER place and I was able to get a tetanus shot, two antibiotics pills and a different antibiotic cream. Today I’m much better.

I had intended to hike in Palo Duro Canyon here but after a visit on Wednesday we found we had been here in 2009. It was around 100 in the canyon yesterday, 104 today. My bites itch more in heat so we decided to just explore Amarillo and forego hiking for later (when Dan is with us).

Today we went to the Jack Sisemore RV Museum and checked it our. Pretty cool! Free too!

I put photos on FaceBook and also here on my website.

We have one more day here then off to Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Hopefully I can do a better job of our trip details for the rest of the trip.

  1. Hello Jim and Ruthie – I’m so happy to find your trip information with pictures on this web site. I have pretty much given up Facebook because most of what is available on Facebook now is not relevant to my interests. I love your RV Museum pictures. Sorry about the 20 tick bites. Tick bites can make you really sick so I’m very glad you got some medical attention for them. Now that I know you are posting more often I will come here every few days to see your adventures. I love to see all your pictures and to follow your “travel trail. ” Take care of yourselves out there and post again soon. Love to you both.
