LAND HO!

Sometimes during an RV excursion, you sense a theme in your discoveries. And sometimes it’s a pretty unusual theme. For us, over the last couple of days – days 15 and 16 on our Summer of Love 2.0 expedition—it was land. Three controversial and fascinating plots of land.

The first was Centralia, Pennsylvania. I had been here once before, during a cross-country RV jaunt to research the third of my trilogy of small-town America travel memoirs. But I just had to show Amy this eminently unusual place. In my books, I like to explore the tiniest dots on the map, the hamlets that are dwindling in population, heading toward extinction.

HOME SWEET HOME ON WHEELS

Unknown

Up until now the places we’ve stayed on our journey from Key West to Alaska have been new to us. This week was a little different. We spent the week in one of America’s heartland states, Indiana. It’s the place where I grew up and where the majority of my family still lives. Our mission this week was to spend quality time with family and to see at least two new things in the area. We wanted to show our kids that you can find always find adventure near or far.
