I last checked in as we left Savannah, GA and that is where I will start up.
On Friday, Saturday, Sunday (June 15 - 17) we drove a total of 985 miles picking up Caleb at the Houston Airport, and then on to Bay City, Texas. A little road-weary (after sleeping in the Airstream 28 days out of the last 31!) Grandma’s home was a chance to stretch out and relax. Meals, bathroom, bed, and lots of good family catch-up time made it a perfect 3-day stop. The weather even cooperated and the temperature one day was 88 in Texas – and 97 back home in Van Wert!
Family in Texas is Tom’s mother, Evelyn, who lives around the corner from her daughter Becky (Tom’s sister) and husband Jim. Their younger daughter Ellen was visiting from Bloomington, IN where she is completing her doctorate at Indiana University. Oldest daughter Emily drove down from where she lives in Houston with husband Matt and 3-year-old Max. Except for our son Micah, it was a complete family event!
Refreshed and ready to resume our rambles we left Grandma's house on Wednesday heading for the Natchez Trace. My only regret was that we had not bothered to get out the camera for pictures of our visit. Thus, we thank Jim Coe for arranging us for this group picture
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
