Wonderful Wednesday

Wednesday started off with a beautiful view out the back window.  I awaken just before six and I saw the lake and sun rising quickly.  I scrambled out of the Roadrunner and went to the 'backyard' to see if I could capture some early morning photos.
It was spectacular early.  After that I made some coffee and went back out by the lake and read for a while.  It was peaceful and a great way to start the day.

At 9:30 AM we were invited for coffee to see fellow blogger RVers John and Judy.  John found the Roadrunner Chronicles some weeks back and emailed me that they were going to be here for a few days.  You can read his blog: Tire-Swing
We met and had a great chat about their family, business, boating and RV travels.  Before we left,  they gave us a tour of their beautiful RV.  They have made a lot of modifications and moved the TV from the front of the coach to the side and added a computer desk.  Their beautiful floor is not the heavy ceramic but a very durable composition that was put down with grout.  It wears well and looks great.

After our short visit we emailed them to see if we could get together in the evening.  Sure enough, that worked out too.

But meanwhile, we had an appointment with our friend Rod who is a pilot and was going to give us a tour of the hangar and airplane he flies.
We got the first class treatment and learned more than we could retain about the make, model and specifications of the aircraft.
It was quite impressive with an equally amazing set of dials and gauges to make sure everyone gets from point A to point B safely.

After that, we had lunch at a local Mexican restaurant and then we headed back to the Roadrunner.
Next we drove back to Detroit to pick up Adam from the bus terminal.  He left Chicago this morning on the Megabus and paid $23 for the six hour trip.  Not bad.

After we returned to the Roadrunner, Adam left for some errands and we stayed put.  We packed for our trip to Tennessee tomorrow in the Honda, and then had the chance to visit with John and Judy again.
They are very nice folks and very interesting.  We found we have a lot in common and like many of the same things.  They are planning on getting a newer motor home at some point and were interested in what we like about the Tiffin Allegro Bus.

We talked for a good long while, when outside and built a campfire before it got late and they returned to their campsite not too far way.

Hope you have a great Memorial Day Weekend and a safe one!  Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles!

  2. That was quite a day. Just imagine zipping around the country in that private jet? I don't think I could even begin to fuel up the tanks without blowing my yearly budget though!

  3. What a beautiful morning. Indeed, what a great way to start your day. The photos are spectacular. Good job!
