So long, Beast!

This is our last photo of the beast. We were going to have it fixed, but decided not to, then it wouldn’t even make the drive back to our house.

So long, RV!

It was bittersweet today as we sold the RV! A nice family came out to look at it on Sunday and today we completed the deal. We are glad it is going to a good home!

Back in Des Moines

After 11 months on the road, today we arrived back in Des Moines. The Reagens greeted us at the campground. We got set up and then headed to their house for dinner. We will need to spend the next couple of days moving out of the RV.

White Oak Vineyard

Tonight, for the last night of our trip, we are boondocking at the winery where we spent the first night on our trip. We arrived to some live music and enjoyed a chicken patty dinner before going for a walk around the winery.

Life in Cincinnati

We spent the past week in Cincinnati, the same way we started our trip. After the long Memorial Day weekend, I worked all week and Susan and the kids hung out around town.

Niagara Falls -> Cayuga Campground

Today we made the 8 hour drive from Niagara Falls to Cincinnati. We will be staying the weekend at my sister Holly’s house, aka Cayuga Campground.

After making it in time for Friday night pizza, holly had a variety of Graeter’s ice cream for dessert.

Rose enjoyed sharing hers with Be-Bob.

Niagara Gorge

We learned this week that Niagara Falls has moved 7 miles in the past 12,000 years. This evening we got out for a hike in the gorge carved by the Niagara River. It features some neat rock formations, a wild river, and a whirlpool where the river makes a 90 degree turn.

Niagara Falls: Maid of the Mist

This afternoon I took off from work just a little early and we embarked on the Maid of the Mist boat ride into Niagara Falls. The boat goes past American Falls and then spends about 5 minutes in Horseshoe falls before returning to the dock. It was really neat to be so close to the falls. I think everyone but Lucia and Rose would put it in the top 10 experiences of our trip.

Anchor Bar

This evening for an early dinner we drove in to Buffalo to have some Buffalo Wings at Anchor Bar, the home of Buffalo Wings. We all shared some wings and some fries. We also all agreed that the ‘medium’ wings were just right for us and the ‘hot’ were a little hot. All four of the main wing eaters left the restaurant with fiery lips.

It took a while, but we found and Iowa license plate
