Saltville, Virginia

We had a fiberglass rally to go to Friday Oct 29 - Sunday Oct 29, 2017 ...if the hubby had not had to work we would have gotten there earlier. It was such a cold rainy rally. SO COLD!!! We stayed at Hungry Mother State Park, Virginia. If you are looking for a camping please do check that state park, We love it! Our rally host recommended going to "Museum Of The Middle Appalachians, Saltville, Virginia" ...it was so full of Virginia history... not sure I have ever heard so much info about one area of Virginia. I know we are rich in history here in Virginia ...but there is just so many unique items about Saltville, VA that I truly did enjoy this museum. This area is know as: "The Salt Capital of the Confederacy", you can see Ice Age Mammals, artifacts, fossils, If you are an lover of history, the past, historical events, and just a love for learning ...please check this out!



Right down the road is Palmer Grist Mill a replica water powered grist mill. The hubby said …

The Packard Proving Grounds, Michigan

Let's for a minute, go back in time. .. to The Packard Proving Grounds, Historic Site, Michigan, "Packard Motor Car Company In 1899 brothers James Ward and William Doud Packard founded the Ohio Automobile Company in Warren, Ohio. In 1902 Detroiter Henry Joy and several other local investors purchased the company, moved it to Detroit, and renamed it the Packard Motor Care Company. During the 1920s and 1930s. Packard set the standard for luxury and design. Under the direction of chief engineer Jesse G. Vincent, Packard, known as "America's Master Motor Builder," also made advances in aviation technology. Vincent contributed to the development of the Liberty aircraft engine during World War 1 and predicted the growth of commercial aviation. He considered a proving ground to be essential to high quality." Such a fun day trip for us while staying at Algonac State Park, Marine City, Michigan. It was a fun free trip, lucky for us a couple and their parents were l…

Algonac State Park, Marine City, MI

Hey there folks! Let's check out: Algonac State Park, Marine City, Michigan ...if you know anything about the hubby & myself ...we love so many amazing states ...here are a few that really mean so much to us: 
1. Virginia & West Virginia,  2. Montana & Wyoming,  3. Maine & Michigan 
... those are our top 3. So every time we get to Michigan ...it is like we are home again. There is not a location in Michigan we have visited that has not made us love it even more. This state park is just so amazing. Check out how close that water traffic is to the campground. You can just watch it go by ...so cool. & Right over that water way is Canada!! SO Close, SO Cool!! We saw tugboats, huge barges, tiny boats, all sorts. I think that is a huge reason why the fiberglass rally has continued to be held there over and over! I am one who enjoys going to new rallies every time, we have yet to go to the same one over, but you know what? I think I would consider going to this rally…

Now to what we are here for ... talking about travel.
