The Villages at Turning Stone RV Park Oneida New York

As we make our way east it is still early in the season where we are far enough north that there aren’t many campgrounds or RV parks open. We have to take what we can get and it works out perfectly for us.  The Villages at Turning Stone is part of the Turning Stone Casino and sits about a mile …

From Geneva State Park we headed east on I-90 through Pennsylvania and on to New York following the shoreline of Lake Erie all the way to the outskirts of Buffalo.  We had purchased an E-Z Pass for the toll roads and it sure made things a lot quicker and easier.   We then took some backroads east of Buffalo to …

Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum Oklahoma City Oklahoma

We spent some time in the Oklahoma City area visiting family and fell in love with this area. Oklahoma City is such a clean, quaint, charming city with a small town feel. Edmond is just as lovely.

Not quite the loud music we thought it would be but it was kind of …
