Ray & Vicki's Motorhome Odyssey

Has it been awhile since you looked at our web site? Catch up with our travels at Journal 2014.

   
May 11, 2014:
We sought out the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal
National Historical Park outside of Washington DC. Vicki relived childhood memories of a family outing here when her Dad was stationed at nearby Fort Belvoir in the late 1950s. The C&O Canal stretches from Georgetown in the District of Columbia to the mountains of Western Maryland, where it helped build our economy after the Civil War (virtual reality view).
