Kenny and Nancy call Oconto, Wisconsin home during the summer boating season where together they enjoy recreational boating on the Oconto River and the Bay of Green Bay. When boating season is over they become snowbirds and head south for the winter in their Monaco Windsor luxury motor coach named OWFISH.

Kenny lived and traveled in OWFISH with his late wife Barbara from 2002 until she had a disabling stroke in 2011 and passed away the following year. From then the OWFISH set, except for a short trip in 2013, until Kenny started traveling again with his new wife Nancy in 2014.

The sign speaks for it's self

This is one of several signs like this coming into the RV park.

I wonder why we don't have any barking rats running loose around here?

Happy Birthday Kenny!

On this date, many years ago in the early 1950's, in the Mojave Desert town of Barstow, California, I came to be.

Barb and I celebrated this day of wonder by having dinner with our daughter Angel and her family here in Biloxi.

Pickensville, AL

We were on the road by 10:00 this morning. Our destination today is the Pirate's Marina Cove in Pickensville, AL. Pirate's Marina Cove is on the Tombigbee River and is a stopover for members of the America's Great Loop Cruisers' Association doing America's Great Loop. It seemed like a long drive to day driving 247 miles. Tomorrow we'll be in Biloxi, MS where we'll spend the first 3 months of the winter.

Guild, TN

The last 5 days in Lenoir City were great. We met up with John Winter of John Winter Yacht who gave us a driving tour of the area. John moved here last year from Oconto, WI where he done most of the Phase 1 Renovation work on our boat. Besides stopping to visit John on our trip south, we wanted to see areas of the Tennessee River for consideration of relocating to Tennessee and cruising the over 600 miles of the river. We loved what we seen and John said this was just the tip of the "ice burg".

To see more of the "ice burg", we pulled out of Lenoir City getting on the road by 10 AM this morning and headed to Hales Bar Marina & Resort in Guild, TN for a night or two. Guild is some 20 highway miles west of Chattanooga, TN on the Tennessee River.

We drove 115 miles today, stopping in Chattanooga for fuel, taking on 63.05 gallons costing $185.30.

Lenoir City, TN

We got a late start this morning but were on the road by 10 AM after having breakfast. Traffic going through Louisville should have been down but there was an accident on I-64 that had the traffic backed up for 10 miles. By the time we got up to it though, they had cleared the road and traffic was moving again.

We stopped at the Flying J travel Center in Waddy for fuel. Usually I go through the truck line because the pumps are a lot faster. 60 gpm compared to 5 gpm at the RV line. But I wanted to fill the onboard propane tank and that's in the RV line. The fuel pump might have been pumping 2 gpm so after 25 gallons I stopped. I would have been there for another 10 minutes before the tank was full.

From there through Lexington, KY the traffic wasn't bad but going south on I-75 from Lexington to Knoxville, through the Cumberland Mountains, the traffic was heavy. I kept looking for a rest area where we could stop for lunch but there is none between Lexington and the Tennessee border until we pulled into the Tennessee Welcome Center. There was no place to park! So I pulled through and stopped on the on ramp before getting back on I-75 long enough for a bathroom break and a fast sandwich.

We finely made it to Lenoir City, TN where we are staying at the Lazy Acres RV Park or a few days. Today we drove 279 miles but it felt like the longest day of driving. Total miles from Oconto to Lenoir City was 935 miles.

Clarksville, IN

We were on the road by 6:15 this morning as we continue our trip south for the winter. Our planned stop was in a small town east of Louisville, KY at the Flying J Travel Center until we discovered during our lunch stop that we were out of fresh water. I don't know why because I filled up last Thursday at the yacht club. Well a 100 gallons goes fast when your taking showers and washing dishes. So we dug out the campground directories and found a campground on the Indiana side of Louisville, KY for the night called the Add-More Campground in Clarksville, IN. Today we traveled 319 miles. Tomorrow we will try to make the last 280 miles of this leg to Lenoir City, TN.
