    Mega Road Trip V2.0 2017 - 2018

    We will head out in about one week on September 1st or a day or two before. I may occasionally drop in here with an update but will more than likely post most stories and pictures on the Gypsy Journal, the website we have created. Since Photobucket held the vast majority of images I have posted over the last decade hostage the website idea made more sense. So rather than putting the images and stories in two places I will likely put a link or reminder up here when there is new content about our travels.

    Enjoy!!

    Mega Roadtrip V2.0

    May fordings never be too deep, And alders not too thick; May rock slides never be too steep And ridges not too slick.
    And may your bullets shoot as swell As Fred Bear's arrow's flew; And may your nose work just as well As Jack O'Connor's too.
    May winds be never at your tail When stalking down the steep; May bears be never on your trail When packing out your sheep.
    May the hundred pounds upon you Not make you break or trip; And may the plane in which you flew Await you at the strip.
    -Seth Peterson

    Presently on Kerr Lake at Nutbush State Park in North Carolina. The trip has mostly gone as planned except for some minor mechinicals like injector #2 going out in the middle of no where in British Columbia.

    The two week visit in PA with Joyce's family was nice and then we spent a week or so with my clan.

    We also enjoyed a brunch meeting with Phillygirl.

    I haven't bothered to check in here much. Hope you all are
    doing well.

    Still a bit warm in the Carolinas for my taste. If I were doing this, I'd aim for a steady 72 - 74 degrees high daily as I moved south. But you both look fit and it sounds like you're having fun, so keep on carrying on, as we used to say.

    Hope we get a chance to meet up again. It would be February if it happens. No promises though.

    Nighttime temps have been great for sleeping.

    Beautiful! Hmm, 73 degrees with 92% humidity at midnight; high near 80 all this week, even with rain. Nope, don't miss it. Better thee than me.
