    I’d love to do what you do. Unfortunately I’ll probably never be able to retire. 60 yr old now and will probably never be able to retire. So I’ll enjoy your trips. Thanks for sharing.

    Enjoy New England. Hope you guys can take the Northeast’s hazy, hot, humid weather that summer time brings. We went for a walk at Laurelwood last night and reminisced. We miss you guys! Our driveway looks so empty! 🙂

    Hi Jim and Mary! I was wondering, do you still have the blog you wrote about me? Im applying for ajob that I really really want, and I think that would speak well for me! My email is if you dont still have it. I gave my copy of what you wrote to a fiend to show her hubby, and now she cant find it. Thanks Let me know if theres a way I can go back that far and copy it?

    Hello Jim and Mary. I found your site by chance when I was researching info on Bucke Waker’s book – The True Story of an Island Trajedy. Jim, like you I found And The Sea Will Tell to be a facinating read when I read it over 10 years ago. I discovered just today that Walker later wrote his account while in prison. I attempted to find a cheap used copy of Walker’s book on Amazon, but it was a hard cover version with a price of $24. I also found the Walker’s website and a new copy cost of just under $25. I then searched again and found your sight and that you had recently ordered Walker’s book. (Given that Walker died a number of years ago, I’m curious who is selling his self-published book- his family I guess.)

    Anyway, I’ve decided I’m not going to buy the book (at least for now) for three reasons: 1. It’s over 800 page long; 2. Given the evidence available, along with Walker’s past criminal background, it seems to me that they caught the right guy. Although, I have serious doubt that the girlfriend Jennifer wasn’t in on it. 3. I don’t want to spend $24 on a book that’s likely poorly written.

    So I’m wondering if after you read it if you’d let me know what you thought about, and if you’d recommend it.

    I live in the San Franciso Bay area and work for a law enforcement agency in San Francisco.

    Best regards and happy travels,

      Hi Adrian,
      I can do that. By time I read the book and get back to you will likely be in early November.

  7. I just found your blog while searching random blogs on Hitchitch. My wife and I have been RV camping since 2003. Last September we decided to sell everything and go full time. We should hit the road in June 2012 for our big adventure. I like your writing style and am looking forward to reading past posts and following you guys in the future.

  12. Dear Mary and Jim;
    Thanks so much for visiting our Vivian Alexander Gallery and Museum, and for expressing your appreciation of our unique art and taking some with you as you both travel through life. I look forward to tomorrow’s blog and reading your impressions and seeing your images of our Gallery. I will certainly post your pictures and narrative on Facebook, in the eggers section.
    Love and kisses,
    Alex Caldwell, and Liza Caldwell

    The greatest pleasure was ours. And, do correct any errors I’ve made. You are such a gentleman and we tend to rush in to speak during a conversational lull. I think we missed half of what you had to offer. I guess my excitement was evident. We will return someday, you can be sure.

  14. Paula

    It was very nice meeting you all at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles in Ashland Kentucky….Safe Travels!

  15. Why does Gramma have a mustache?

    Sometimes life throws curveball and for us, it was just what we needed. We’ve only just begun our new chapter and are enjoying sharing your journey.

    I would love to be able to read your entries, my wife and I recently bought a 2005 Winnebago Voyage 33′ in preparation for more travels and retirement now that our best is empty.

    RVing after retirement is the dream. Did a 12,000 Mike trip in a Malibu in 2015. My travel bug itches every 2 months.

  22. Hearts of Deployment

    My husband and I love to visit historic places. We were encouraged to stop by the store and try the chicken after visiting the ruins. I’m glad we did! Mr. D is an amazing man and a perfect host! I don’t even like fried chicken or turnip greens, and I ate it all! My husband and I still talk about the food! He’s currently deployed and I couldn’t help but share this with him!
