1959 tradewind on the road

Posted 08-19-2010 at 05:06 PM by gypsygirl1

DAY 12 - Sun Aug 8 2010
Cool, overcast morning with drizzle on and off. We had a great breakfast -- bacon on the barbie, scrambled eggs, homefries, toast and coffee. If the food keeps up like this, we're going to gain lots and lots of weight, and neither one of us needs to do that!!!
The weather cleared up in the afternoon, and it was sunny and warm. We went out to dinner in Calgary at a place called China Rose. They had a great buffet with delicious food. Full, and early to bed...

DAY 11 - Sat Aug 7 2010
Cool and sunny morning, stopped in Champion at the little grocery store for ice. We met another local who would hardly let us out of town. We knew the entire history of Champion before we headed north to Vulcan AB. Practically the entire town are devoted fans of Start Trek. Leonard Nimoy (yes, Spock) visited there in June for their Trek Days Festival. I managed to get a picture of my guy with the 'crew'.
We made it to Calgary by 2:15PM and my husband's cousin...

Travels With Our 59 Tradewind

Posted 05-10-2009 at 08:08 AM by gypsygirl1

DAY 107 - Fri May 8
Still very muggy, with tornado watches again today -- mid 80's.
On our way to the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in Jackson TN this morning. It is housed in an old downtown building, and is chock full of the history of Rockabilly music. After we rang the doorbell a very nice lady came and let us in. She explained that it was $5/each for the tour, and that she shows three dvd's, and then you are free to roam the museum. She also shared a couple of personal experiences growing...

Travels With Our 59 Tradewind

Posted 05-10-2009 at 07:32 AM by gypsygirl1

DAY 104 - Tue May 5
Warm and very muggy....
Rolling by 9:30AM, saying goodbye to The Big Easy -- heading US11N to I-59N to Hattiesburg Mississippi. We passed a yard full of what looked like FEMA trailers just outside Purvis. There had to be hundreds, if not thousands of trailers there. We wondered what they'll do with all those trailers!!! We made a left at US98 towards Natchez to start the Natchez Trace, but the weather changed our minds, and we decided to catch it at Jackson instead....
