While our trip back to the Mitten State was largely uneventful, there are always things that catch your interest and are worthy of a mention. Here are a few of our observations.
We originally saw this Uhaul and trailer in Gainesville on I-75. He was doing about 60 MPH, and the rear tire on the other side of the trailer was shredded and sparks were flying everywhere. We slowly passed him. Diana informed him he had a flat, and he waved that he knew. 35 miles later, he pulled into the rest area behind us. We are not quite sure how that was even possible!
We saw this rig in Alabama. That is a Ford F-350 single rear wheel truck, just like ours. We are just under the truck’s limit wth our fully loaded 31 foot trailer. I have to believe this Ford is overloaded. Situations like the above two scare us, as they are jeapordizing other people’s safety.
We saw this rig in Nashville near the Grand Ole Opry. It makes us wonder just what country music star it belongs to. 🙂
Another GMC motorhome! We saw it in almost the same location as the last one. Great to see them, as I said before.
We always love to see newly built highways. So new, in fact, the Garmin thinks we are driving across a field. Time to update. Recalculating!
When hanging out in Florida near the Everglades, do as your wife does and wear bug spray. Here is one of my chigger-ravaged ankles. I drove all the way back to Michigan in sandals, as socks drove me nuts. 🙂
A couple of other notes we want to pass along: We updated our Harvest Hosts post to include Diana’s candlelit video of the sounds of the ranch. So, if you saw the post before the video was posted, it is worth it to go back and check it out. Also, we added some photos this morning that our niece took to the Al Kaline Delivered post. She took some great family pics that show what a great time we had. 🙂
So, as uneventful as the trip was, there was plenty of interesting things to take in. We love being able to travel, and are thankful for this nomadic life of ours. We hope you enjoy riding along with us!

Jim & Diana.
Do glad to hear that you had a great and safe trip.
We loved spending the afternoon together.
Jim, I have Red Fire Ant bites all over my right ankle too.
So I’m in sandals too.
Take care, will continue reading.
We loved spending the afternoon together with you two also, Fred! It got pretty cold here for sandals, but I had no choice. Glad to say they are getting better. Safe travels!
It is always interesting when your GPS says you are driving “off road”. The guy in the U-Haul is lucky he did not start a fire or an accident!
I am still trying to figure out how he didn’t Jim. I’m sure you see your share of similar situations. Stay safe!
