From Peaches to Oran...

Today we left the family and continued on our journey.  We really had a brilliant time while we were there and did not deserve all the special treatment we received. Unfortunately though, the one thing that was missing for much of our time there was warm weather. We were constantly told the...

Target Practice

So we have a bit of a theme happening this weekend.  Today we went out to the shooting range to try our hand at 9mm rounds instead of the 08 buck shot we tried out yesterday. This time I was the only newbie – Andrew has previously shot handguns and rifles in the Army. We’ve both...

New year, new experi...

It’s really great to get to start off a new year trying some new things. Today we tried: 1. Changing our own oil. & 2. Shooting a shotgun. The oil change was a relitively painless once we figured out where everything goes.  We’ve been carrying around the supplies for weeks...

Goodbye old year

To round out the last day of the year we headed out to see a bit of Savannah. To get the full experience, we decided to do the hop-on hop-off trolly tour as a way to learn about this historic city. Luckily the weather was absolutely brilliant today. And of course Savannah is quite photogenic....

Game time

While we’ve been visiting, we’ve had the chance to see a few junior league basketball games. Even though they’re still pretty green they can still put on a a pretty good show. Who knows, maybe one day they’ll be ready for the...

Christmas done diffe...

Christmas this year was different for both of us. It is the first year either of us will not be seeing our parents for the holidays.  It is also the first year we decided no gifts, and meant it. Just like each of our birthdays, the feeling is we pretty much have whatever we need, and anything...

Snowless Birthday

It’s not often I get snow on my birthday but if we were back in Canada we would definately be feeling it.  Today however was the first day, since arriving, that we’ve actually seen the sun come out with a bit of good weather.  Sunshine. What more could you ask for on your...

All lit up

It must be Christmas.  When else would you see a whole scene play out in lights on someones front lawn? If you look closely you will notice a helicopter, an airplane, a rocketship and a sleigh all flying around a nativity scene. Plus a Santa thrown in for good measure.  Gotta love it though....

Art and Cheesecake

The one thing we’ve noticed around Atlanta is some places are just crumbling and falling apart, but even with this there is still a little sense of humour. Look closely at the boards that cover the windows. The Little Five Points neighbourhood, east of Atlanta, is a hip and a little off...

Cold Mountain

Since we’ve crossed the border we don’t have the internet or a phone that we need to be able to do our work. As a result we’ve been spending a lot of time in Starbucks enjoying their free wifi. If you know us, this is completely ironic because neither of us really enjoy...

Shower hunt

Today we set out to get ourselves a shower and do some laundry. It may sound like a simple task but when you’re on the road, finding a place to shower can be a challenge. In the past, the easiest place is at an RV park as they typically have both of these things available. Though, the...

The Real Ruby Falls

Today we set out to do a tour of Ruby Falls, though I must say after the tour at Jack Daniel Distillery, the bar was set pretty high. Perhaps too high. Unfortunately I wasn’t all that impressed. In my opinion, the tour was a bit tacky and overpriced and the tour guide is set to rush you...
