My last post in January was all about The Big Letting Go – the process of clearing out all my stuff to get ready to sell the duplex I owned with my mom. It took a lot out of me both physically and emotionally to part with the stuff I didn’t want to let go […]

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 […]

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 […]

Georgia Aquarium 225 Baker Street NW Atlanta, GA 30313 (404) 581-4000 When I asked friends for suggestions on what to see while I was in Atlanta, several said not to miss the Georgia Aquarium.  What brought me here was to see the Gone With the Wind Museum in Marietta and honestly, I was more in […]

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. […]
