CHECK BACK HERE OFTEN BECAUSE THIS LIST
WILL DEFINITELY GROW AS WE TRAVEL
The weather we have encountered: sunny & warm, cloudy, cold, rainy,
foggy, extra windy, hail, and even a tropical storm in Maine.
We will stop traveling when we have seen it all, or we wake up from this
dream, or are broke, or too old to drive, or too sick to continue. Not
expecting any of the above to happen soon or at all for that matter.
UNTIL THEN - Lots of love and hugs to all - please keep
following our travels and keep in touch. We miss you. Ta!
