A couple years ago we made what I called our twilight trip around the country, because I thought we would never do it again. So although I have said NEVER SAY NEVER, I still do it at times.
The first two weeks are structured because we have our two sons with us. We wanted this, because last year we had a week or so together and had one of the best family times since they were kids, on the moto-cross circuit.
We want them to experience the French Quarter and especially the ‘Café du Monde’ and their chicory coffee with those heavenly beneighs.
We want them to see a part of history that was a battle cry of many, “Remember the Alamo”. As many times as I go there I think back to the decision those unknown and Famous men made. They knew they were going to die, no quarter. But they stayed.
We want them to eat on the River Walk and observe the festivities. Maybe visit some towns around, even travel to Brackettville.
So this is the first day of “Probably our last hurrah” at long distance trips. WE stopped at the Pilot Flying J to load up with fuel and eat at Dennys. IOur diesel was $3.35, gas was $3.06. That is probably the least expensive we will see on the whole trip.
That is Kings Mountain, SC as we leave NC. Location of a famous Revolutionary Battle, General Ferguson was killed there.
This odyssey is planned to be near three months and approx 7000 miles. We are in Greenville, Alabama for our first night. We were in four states today:NC,SC,GA and AL. We passed near some of our dear Internet friends but as I figured we were behind, both Sons were a little late getting ready and we were 2 hrs late checking into our RV park here.

Thanks for traveling along with us. I hope you enjoy the trip.
I get excited just feeling that Cummings Diesel in the rear of the coach pushing us along and towing the little FIT.
We Passed this car hauler, what did he have in the middle? That is a Studebaker Avanti. The Driver gave us the thumbs up as we passed he had seen Sherry Taking the pictures.
