Trip Log

March 22, 2007

While not really sick, Jerry's cough, aches and the duration led him to the walk in clinic in Naples.  He is now on antibiotics to treat what is being called the Naples crud.  We did leave on Tuesday morning and had an uneventful trip to Paul and Carol Stone's in New Smyrna Beach.   The Niebauers

March 18, 2007

We have come to our last day here in Naples. We have so enjoyed the time spent with my brother although both Jerry and I are completely worn out. I guess we haven't gotten out of the "do everything today" mentality of travel.

Craig and Janet went back to work today so we went back to retirement.  A long bike ride along the beach road with a beach walk mixed in and we stopped at the Naples preserve on the way back.  It's only a few blocks from Craig's house and we had not been there.  The truck steps were delivered whi

Today we went to mass at St. Agnes, a new church that Craig built. He left before the finish work but build the structure. We saw the church two years ago before it was finished and it turned out very well.

Today we traveled southeast of Naples and saw some of the real Florida.  We traveled with Janet & Craig and Ray Carroll and his son, Robbie.  Ray grew up in Naples and loves to show off his Florida and we love it.  We went skeet & trap shooting in the morning and the girls did great.  It

This week has been hot, at least to two northerners used to 20 degrees.  Our time has been spent learning the trailer, walking on the beach and helping to get ready for Katie's wedding.  The trailer is great, everything is working fine and we are getting used to it, even calling it home.  We are

It has been a very busy week.  After finishing new floors in the dining and living rooms we helped move much of Jeff & family's stuff into the house.

February 13, 2007

It snowed last night. We were going to go out and practice backing up but not in the snow. The snow is one of the reasons we want to be gone while the other pictures are some of the reasons we don't want to be gone too long.

February 12, 2007

Today we picked up the trailer.  They showed us how to use everything, made a few things right and the trailer was ours to take home.  We hooked it to the truck but it was in a tight spot so they brought it out.  It was tight because on the way out the front right corner of the trailer dented the
