It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Another Leg.

Our Location today is Wapakoneta, Ohio, USA.

We were tired enough last night that we fell straight to sleep but that didn’t mean our bodies weren’t aware that today was another travel day. Around 4:00 in the morning we both seemed to wake every half hour just long enough to look at the clock before rolling over and going partially back to sleep. 

By 7:30 we got up to have our breakfast before starting to secure the inside of the trailer for travel. Luckily we had only set up the necessities we needed on Monday so by 9:30 we were already pulling out and heading for the highway. Today like yesterday we didn’t see the sun throughout our entire trip as a fact we did see on and off drizzle for the first hour of our trip. 
A couple of Prototype cars cruised by us on I-75.
For the last ten years every time we’ve driven through Lexington on I-75 there had been traffic tie ups due to construction making for late lunches. We had clear sailing up I-75 and by 11:30 we pulled in to Cracker Barrel just before Lexington Kentucky to have our lunch. We enjoyed a new sampler today which was two side ribs and two chicken tenders with sweet potato fries, Cole Slaw and biscuits. It was very tasty as all their meals are, reasonably priced and we were satisfied without being stuffed. 

We were back on the road by 12:30 and even though there was still the construction through Lexington there were no slowdowns. We continued on driving through additional construction at Cincinnati and Dayton Ohio but again with no slowdowns. 

Kathy had the chance to have a couple of Snaps during the drive to make up for the lack of sleep from last night but with me driving that was impossible. We stopped at Piqua Ohio around 4:00 because I needed a coffee so I could continue driving and I also spotted a sign for Home Depot. I’ve been trying to purchase a product that John Hollinger had purchased to seal his RV’s roof with and I found it advertised online at Home Depot. After looking around other big box stores I learned that the product is only carried by Home Depot and today through the help of an associate I learned the product is regionally specific as well. In other words Home Depot only carries it in their southern Florida outlets. Guess what I’ll be buying this coming winter.

It was 5:00 by the time we rolled in to the Wapakoneta KOA after driving 281.9 miles today. Kathy said we were both too tired to be cooking supper so for $10.00 she ordered a pizza delivered to our site for 6:00. That gave us time to be totally set up inside and out before we had supper sitting on our patio. When the pizza was delivered it was like someone flipped a switch and the clouds allowed the sunshine to come through making a wonderful end to a dreary travel day. 

Yes we still have our leftovers that we’ll make future meals with before we cross the border on Friday. We had planned on just staying overnight but changed that so we can do some exploring tomorrow. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


You Might Be a Redneck If

The only private club you've ever belonged to is Sam's Wholesale Club.


  1. Lots to see in the area, the bicycle museum in Bremen is fun as well as the Airstream Factory in Jackson Centre and the even the Neil Armstrong Space Museum across the road. We always enjoy it there in Wapakoneta.

  2. The prototype car looks like something you'd see in Key West.

    So you are coming to south Florida this year after all?

    BTW...what is the name of the mysterious roof sealant?
