Of course the journey is the destination! Why else get out on the road?

We are most timers with an apartment in Rochester NY that we visit from time to time so our doctors know where to find us. We claim TX domicile and the handle - xctraveler - defines what we do so we can visit grandchildren on both coasts.

Waiting now for my number.

Nissan, have you made any suggestions for the next GC? Where, when and what they got!

Us young at heart need to help these old farts get their grove on, and oh yeah, back to their campers by 10 o'clock 9 for Marty!

OH MAN...What a beautiful day!

Now THIS is what riding the rainbow seems to be about. Going places we never thought we would go 2 years ago. We have spent 3 days in the Mackinaw City, MI area. Morning temps in the upper 50s, by noon near 70.

Yesterday started a tad cloudy with a small bit of rain but by noon was sunny. A little breezy so we opted to do the boat ride to Mackinac Island today. Instead we toured Mackinaw City and all the fudge shops. MMMMMMMMM (this theme will repeat) We really enjoyed our tour of the USGC Mackinaw (Mighty Mac) ice breaker. WOW, what a boat! Decommissioned in 2006 but still intact. Mighty Mac NEVER failed to meet its mission...NEVER! Needless to say we left the boat impressed with it.

Today was FANTASTIC. It was sunny, very light breeze and we had a great ride to and from Mackinac Island. Yes, a bit touristy but we were amazed at the history of it all. And more freakin' much fudge that that you can swim in it. MMMMMMMMMM

I also got to re-aquaint myself with one of my favorite eats when I was stationed near Detroit. The...PASTY! (Not pasties you dirty minded old farts. LOL) A pasty is kinda like a pot pie filling folded into a crust pocket and just plain, ole, good eating. Heading into the UP we will be in pasty country for the next week.

Then there is the great lake white fish. Another dietary delight.

Tomorrow morning we leave for our Newmar Rally but this little taste of the north part of the LP really was our first, big surprise of what we hope is a long list of surprises as we meander our way on the rainbow.



Days like the last few are just what makes the journey such a remarkable destination.

Steve, pay them no never-mind. In the vows it says "To love, honor, and cherish." It doesn't say a darn thing about going blind. Just make sure that when you are driving down bikini beach to tell Annie to hold the wheel before you swivel your head.

Hmmmmm.. Have you found a place up there for a GC? Near the fudge store?

I lost my desire to look / gawk when Annie and I met. And - she doesn't even read this thread.
