Hi, we’re Suze and Lee Weaver

We hope you will join us as we transition from our very "normal" life to something a little less traditional. We are not experts in downsizing, minimalism, early retirement, or full-time RV living. In fact, we’re not experts in anything! Our goal for this blog is simply to share our travels and adventures with our friends and family. Along the way we hope to continuously learn, grow, and laugh.

We finally made our way through Michigan and into Indiana. It was good to be back in South Bend, and it was great to catch-up with family and friends. While we were in South Bend, Suze and I were able to take a long walk around the Notre Dame Campus. It’s changed and grown incredibly over the years. It doesn’t even look like the same place I remember biking around as a 13 year old kid. Some things haven’t changed, however.

The Grotto is one place on the Notre Dame campus that hasn’t changed at all over all of these years.

Touchdown Jesus!

The rain held off for our Tailgate at the ND - Virginia game. The best part of going to a Notre Dame football game is tailgating with friends! In fact, we skipped the game and watched on TV. Thanks for taking the photo blue pants - classic Jim.

We left South Bend on Monday morning and started slowly making our way down to Kentucky. We plan on meandering around Kentucky, West Virginia, and Tennessee over the next month or so. We stopped at a Harvest Host in Flora, IN - The Heritage Farm. This was one of the more unique businesses I’ve seen. It’s an alpaca farm and they host weddings and other large gatherings.

Suze was able to purchase some alpaca yarn taken from one of the more than 50 alpacas on the farm.

The dog is named Juno and she is one happy dog. You can almost see her smiling as she runs around the farm.

This cabin was built in the 1870’s and moved from it’s original location about 3 miles from the farm. They rent out the cabin to guests today. It’s really nicely done and they have a wood-fired pizza oven in the back.

Our next stop on our way south through Indiana was at Cedar Creek Winery. It’s actually a winery, distillery, and brewery. They have a very nice outdoor stage and music every weekend. I came away with a Growler.

We’ve seen a lot of goats on our travels, but not as many miniature ponies.

We should be in the Mammoth Cave National Park area tomorrow. We are looking forward to visiting another Army Corps of Engineers Campground, and we hope to visit the caves and do a little kayaking on Nolin River Lake.
