Michigan to Ohio
Friday, we traveled from Davison, MI to Wapakoneta, OH and spent the night at the Lakewood RV Park. Saturday, we traveled from Wapakoneta, through Columbus, to Marietta, OH. It was great traveling through Columbus listening to the Michigan Michigan State game on WJR. In Marietta, we are camping in a small campground on the Muskingam River, about 1/2 mile from where it flows into the Mighty Ohio River. My sister, Judy, and her husband, John, drove from Northern VA and met us here. We see her so little and it was great getting together again. Today, we had a great day of talking all day long. Tomorrow, we travel to Parkersburg, WV with Sunshine and their dog Rascal. Then we will make a walking tour of Marietta. Our mother spent her early years here and across the river in WV, leaving for MI in the 1930s. I believe that she did this in order for us to not be born Buckeyes. We are eternally grateful. Tuesday, we leave here and continue heading south through WV,VA, NC, SC, GA and into Silver Springs, FL, with a possible arrival date of November 1.
