Well, after a LOT of persuasion, sweetness, and downright bribes, I finally convinced Helen (adorable wife) to take an RV trip. We're taking advantage of a "Relocation Special" from Cruise America. We'll be heading out from Chicago to the west coast by way of Tennessee then across the southwest and eventually reaching Point Mugu, CA which is somewhere north of Malibu. This will be an adventure and we're both nervous and excited, but it will be a great retirement activity.
For fun, we have given our RV the nickname Sherman and we have titled our adventure "Sherman's March to the Sea". Please join us. Over the next few weeks, we will share our adventure here and let you in on the places we visited and the great food we hope to experience. Can't wait to begin Easin' Along.

This is the last chapter of the three-week adventure we titled "Sherman's March to the Sea. Please see our previous blog entries on the Cruise America blog page.
Throughout Sherman’s March to the Sea, we’ve had some great stops along the way. Helen (adorable wife) and I both loved White Sands, NM, and Cottonwood, AZ, but we probably saved the best for last.
As we pulled into our assigned campsite at Point Mugu, CA we were filled with mixed emotions. First, there was the…Continue

Sherman, our Cruise America RV, pulled out of Kirtland AFB raring’ to go. We had rented a car for a couple of days to explore the area around Santa Fe, so Sherman was given the weekend off. Now, rested, ready, and with a full tank of gas, he was heading due west on I-40 to Cottonwood, AZ.
About three hours into a very scenic drive we passed the entrance to the Petrified Forest National Park and decided to pull over to commemorate the event with a picture. We coaxed a young lady into…Continue

We were on the eighth day of Sherman’s march to the sea and staying at the Kirtland AFB FamCamp. Our seventh day had been spent taking in the sights around Albuquerque (see previous post) and today, the eighth, would be devoted to Santa Fe and some shopping.
I’m not a shopper. I do enjoy strolling through flea markets and consignment stores, but aside from that, I can think of several other pastimes I had rather pursue. Helen (adorable wife) feels much the same…unless there’s a sale…Continue

Leaving White Sands was a tad bit difficult because the setting was incredibly beautiful. We would have loved another day there to pause and enjoy, but Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque was the next stop and we wanted to spend some time in the area. We had no reservation. Helen (adorable wife) had been told that space was tight so we pointed Sherman (our Cruise America RV) northward and took off. The drive was only four hours and we had plenty of time before check-in. This would be our first stop…Continue
