Genealogy research, bus repair, Mammoth Caves, Chattanooga-Chickamauga Battlefield, lots of driving and we’ve arrived!
Family research, visiting a friend, crossing the Mackinac Bridge, enjoying the backroads in Michigan, Ft. Wayne (more family research!)
Mt. Rushmore, Wall Drugs, Badlands National Park, Minute Man Missle Site, Dignity Status, Fargo Woodchipper, and driving, driving, driving!
Devils Tower; Sundance Wyoming; Jewel Cave; and Crazy Horse Memorial!
A. Freezout Lake We left Freezout Lake somewhat late in the morning, having spent some time working (that has to be done now and again!).
A. Leaving Home We pulled out of the driveway Saturday, May 9th at about 6:00 pm – later than we had planned, but it was still light.
In April and May of 2021 we had some life changes and new awarenesses … and decided that it was time to get back on the road for a while. It was a quick decision and in just TWO WEEKS we got the bus ready, our house ready and us ready and we headed out on May 9th for another adventure across the country.
There won’t be any posts on this site for a bit: Marie and I have settled into a house in the Seattle area, taking a break from the road for a year or two while we do some training at the Church of Scientology in Seattle.
Since acquiring it nearly three years ago, we have been making a continual effort to keep up with maintenance on our 36-foot diesel pusher bus; a 1987 Beaver Marquis, the High Tech Classic edition, bus #514 produced that year by the now extinct behemoth company, Beaver Motor Coaches.
One thing I’ve learned about soapmakers is that they come in all shapes, sizes and guises. One of which is our dear friend, Sr. Cathleen Marie who is a monk living and working in a monastery in Clyde, Missouri (Population 82).
