RV Travel notes

Table of Contents of Letters
RV travel letters* describe many places we visited on extended trips in the US and Canada.  Some
places are mentioned that are not elsewhere in this site.  There are over 200 photos.  Includes two Alaska
trips (2007 by motor home and a cruise in 2005).  Descriptions tend to be a bit more detailed.
 It is my belief
that the items featured are basically stable so the older letters can help in trip planning.

    Some background.  Since 1991, when we moved to North Carolina, we have sent snail-mail letters to our family -- three
    daughters (addressed "Dear Gals") and their families plus our sisters.  They were written as the mood strikes us --
    every couple of weeks as we travel.  After three or so pages they're sent -- about three or four letters a year.  As they are
    busy moms it is important to be brief.  Letters have been edited to remove "family stuff" and other identifying information
    of people.
