Learning about Bible translator/missionary transportation at JAARS!

While we were in North Carolina, we really wanted to go to the JAARS headquarters.  JAARS is an acronym for Jungle Aviation and Radio Services, and JAARS is affiliated with Wycliffe Bible Translators, who we visited while we were in Orlando (if you haven’t read about our wonderful Wycliffe experience, you can go to that […]

New Friends!!!

After our wonderful 2 weeks near Winston-Salem, it was time to start heading back west.  We had a few stops to make on our way out of the state, so we didn’t drive far the first day- only about 2 hours.  We pulled into a Walmart to park the rig while we ran up to […]

Getting our ‘ Eastern Pioneer’ fix…

…which is much different than a Western Pioneer fix!  😉     While we were family camping at Tanglewood RV park, we were located nice and close to Winston-Salem; this gave us a great chance to explore the area!  We drove in one day to see their downtown area.  Our first stop before heading to Old […]

RV Tanglewood Campground, Winston-Salem, NC…

While my crew was volunteering in High Point, we stayed part of the time in a Thousand Trails park that is part of our membership, but we also spent 4 nights at Tanglewood campground, which is closer to Winston-Salem since we wanted to explore that area. We spent 4 nights at Tanglewood RV campground, which […]

High Point Disaster Relief efforts with Samaritan’s Purse…

Towards the end of March, we spent 2 weeks in North Carolina while Vaughn and the 3 oldest (with us) were volunteering with Samaritan’s Purse ice storm cleanup efforts. We were camping near High Point, NC, which is located between, and just south of Greensboro and Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  High Point is known as the […]

International Civil Rights Center & Museum, Greensboro, NC…

The littles and I were able to do so many fun things during our visit to North Carolina!  One of the destinations that I really wanted to go to was the International Civil Rights Museum.  This stop was a lot different than the others as it wasn’t really a ‘fun’ field trip.  While I had […]

Guilford Courthouse National Battlefield, Greensboro, NC…

Just up the road from the Greensboro Science Center, is the Guilford Courthouse National Battlefield; the location of a Revolutionary War battle on March 15, 1781. While there is nothing left of the small courthouse that once stood on the grounds, the acreage where a decisive battle between the British and the Americans once raged […]

Fun at the Greensboro Children’s Museum…

We’ve been enjoying our stay in North Carolina very much!  Now that the ice has melted, the kids and I have been getting out and about while the others have been volunteering with ice storm cleanup.  I’ve been trying to get the work crew to bring me home some decent pictures to post, but they’ve […]

The Greensboro Historical Museum, NC…

After wrapping up our visit to Georgia, we pulled out last Sunday.  We overnighted in Charlotte; we tried to park in the Bass Pro Shops parking lot but since this one is part of a mall, we were asked to leave by an external security company (they were super nice about it!).   We went […]
