Friends Along the Way

THE BEST PART OF TRAVELING IS MEETING ALL KINDS OF FUN AND UNIQUE PEOPLE! As we travel across America, we are astounded at all the wonderful people we have encountered! There are so many kind and generous people in this great nation of ours. We have experienced Southern hospitality at its finest and have been taught the local customs by some of the best. We have enjoyed being shown around new areas and have loved seeing how people live throughout the country.This page is a tribute to those people - the many that have welcomed us into their families and homes - the people that we now call FRIENDS! Whether we have spent only a few hours with you or have been lucky enough to develop a relationship, we value your friendship and appreciate you taking the time to make our travels so rewarding! We love each and every one of you and feel blessed to have made your acquaintance!
