Independence Day 2021

We celebrate our independence by living our dream, our RV American Dream. Showing our children this amazing country and meeting people from all over the world is inspiring them to chase their own dreams.

We have been staying at Heartland RV Park Every Friday and Saturday they have live music. This song was sung by Greg Johnson and the Friday Nighters on July 2, 2021 at Heartland RV Park. We highly recommend a night or two here. They do a great job and the location is fantastic!!

Get out and celebrate your independence, this last years has been a clear example of how fragile it is.

Happy Independence Day!!

Aurora Around America Ep. 17

We spent some time in the Fort Myers / Punta Gorda area of Florida over the winter. Aurora wanted to try something new and we found a great beginners quilting class at the White Daisy Quilting Shop. It was a brand new business to the area and Cheryl was excited to take Aurora on as a student. I have posted a link to the Quilt shop and class Aurora took.

Aurora Around America Ep. 13

Life changes and we have been spending a longer time in the same place. With all of us busy during the day it is nice to find a quick get away for a couple of hours. Soco Falls and Waterrock Knob are two hikes within 30 minutes of our campground. Both are great for their own reasons.

The Bear Days of Summer

Our third week of the Smoky Mountains brought some new adventures and we revisited previous failures. We discuss two great hikes Rhododendron and Chimney Tops. The kids swim in a rapid and have a blast. Aurora talks about keeping in touch with friends on the road and her letter writing clubs. We play around with our Gopro8 and have some fun in the pool. Finally there is a bear in the campground, and that provided some midday entertainment.
