Ohio and Mom

Kind of an odd route we’ve taken this year.  We were in Ohio for the FMCA convention in July … now we’re back in Ohio for the Gypsy Journal rally, after having done a loop up through Vermont and over to the Jersey shore.


So, it was a feeling of deja vu when we crossed back over into Ohio yesterday. See the video of our trip here.

We needed to be in Columbus this morning because my Mom flew in to meet us.  We wanted her to join us for some RV traveling this summer and it seemed like a cool idea to have her meet us toward the end of the summer, then travel all the way back to Florida with us.  So – she’ll get to attend a rally. The Gypsy Journal rally should be perfect – lots of good stuff going on, but small enough to get to know people.  Then, we’ll start heading south.  We plan to sightsee for a couple of days in D.C., then on to a friend’s son’s wedding in the Chesapeake area of Virginia.

Here’s Mom when I picked her up at the Columbus airport.  She’s well-known for traveling light – she only had her carry ons.  It’s a good thing since our ‘mother-in-law suite’ in the RV doesn’t have a whole lot of storage! 

And, here she is, all settled in.

It feels great to be able to do this since she and my Dad took me on my first RV trip (6 months long) when I was 10 in 1962!  It was from Alaska to Guatemala and back.  I remember enjoying that cab-over space too!

Welcome aboard Mom!
