Once I got back to Austin from my last big tour of the Natchez Trace Parkway, I was looking forward to visits with family, but dreading the business of selling the duplex.  I’ve debated several times over the years about selling it but always got so conflicted and confused, I kept holding on to that […]

Family, Fulltime RVing

In reading questions from people wanting to become fulltime RVers, one of the most frequent concerns is all the stuff they have – what to keep and what to get rid of – whether to pay for storage or just let everything go. In 2001 when I started fulltime RVing it took a few garage […]

My mama, Bertha LeBlanc Quimby, left this earthly life on Sunday, November 23, 2014.  She was 88 years old and her physical body and mental capacity had declined to such an extent that near the end we all prayed for her release from the pain she had been in for too long. Once she told […]

October 6, 2014 – After saying goodbye to my 88 year old mom last week for what I imagine to be the last time given her worsening condition, I’m having a hard time getting back into happy travel mode.  Even though no physical condition at the moment is life-threatening, the doctors say there’s really no […]

I was bewitched by Cades Cove from the first time I entered that 11 mile loop in July, 2013.  I was so enchanted that I knew I wanted to see more than I could if I spent just the summer having to divide my time with all the many other attractions of the Smoky Mountains. […]

The table below have my planned stops when I was still researching my trip south down the Trace.  As of October 27, 2014, I’m there!  Here’s the link to the index page on the website where I’ll be posting lots of pictures and details of this journey.

I guess because I’ve been in Tennessee for over a year now, I’m getting more email and messages from readers asking if I’m still fulltime RVing or if I’ve settled down here.  For sure when I got here in June, 2013 I didn’t anticipate that I’d be here so long.  But to me, that’s one […]
