Listing of our Favorite People, Places  & Adventures


PEOPLE we met on the road...

Gaumer Family in Indiana! Enjoyed pizza, ice cream, swimming and catching up!

Rob the maintenance man at Tall Sycamore Campground in Logansport, IN. 

Amanda at the ice cream and bakery at Bowman Orchards in Rexford, NY. She gave great advise on Adirondack hikes and ice cream at Martha's


Cousins Steve and Judy Reller from Grand Forks, ND, who were in Acadia the same time we were so we spent a day together in Bar Harbor, hiking and having dinner..

Jim from the Cranberry Island Historical Society was an excellent tour guide. He provided us an impromptu private tour of the island on an 8-passenger golf cart making the most of the 75 minutes we had before the ferry returned. The tour included an oyster farm and backside of the island where big waves crashed and we saw surfers making the most of a beautiful day.

Kat Reller delivered Mallory's new Iphone, after getting water damage to her's back in Indiana, and joined us for dinner at the Booth Bay Craft Brewery.


Can't wait to meet them...

Clingman's Dome at the highest point in the Great Smokey Mountains is a half mile climb, unless you make your family go the scenic route that is 1.5 miles (well worth it) to a 360 degree lookout tower.
