Days 10 & 11, June 1 & 2, 2023 Charleston is a charming city. Really, it is charming. You see old-south architecture, flowers blooming out of windowsills, plus the harbor waters all around. So far this has been my favorite stop on the trip. We arrived in Charleston at midday yesterday, giving us just enoughContinue reading “Charleston”

Sunrises to Sunsets
Day 9, Wednesday, May 31, 2023 Today was a day full of rest & relaxation. We never even left the campground today.

History Meets Modern Day
Days 4 & 5, May 26 & 27, 2023 The last couple of days have been a mix of super busy and then super relaxing & then super anxious & then doing it all over again. I guess that’s what you get when you are at an event that is outside and therefore completely reliantContinue reading “History Meets Modern Day”

We left our campground by 6:30 am, knowing that we’d be crossing time zones and would lose an hour fairly quickly. We startedContinue reading “We’ve Arrived!”
