Outside of the usual activities of life, there are three that we particularly enjoy , participate in,  and enjoy sharing with friends. To satisfy our need to share, links are included here to other pages that document these activities.

Lawn and Gardening

Lawn care is a bit of a pain at certain times of the year but on average it is an activity that we enjoy.  Like other things in life, the pleasure comes from performing the task well.  Unfortunately, there are times when we’re not proud of our work and that’s why we try to keep track of our efforts with pictures and a list of the activities.  This way, we hope to be able to analyze what works and what doesn’t.



Both Mann and Carolyn are active participants  and Officers  of the FMCA Dogwood chapter.  Mann is President and Carolyn is Vice President Communications and Treasurer.  Our activities in the club always involve our motor home and the many friends we’ve made during our years of membership.  The nature of Mann’s work in the club is fairly obvious from the title.  Carolyn, as VP Communications, handles all forms of member communications and maintains the clubs web site.  Our involvement in the club has brought us into contact with a great group of people and brings joy to our lives.  The link included here leads to the web site for the club which Carolyn maintains.


Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called “geocaches” or “caches”) anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container (usually a tupperware or ammo box) containing a logbook. Larger containers can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching is most often described as a “game of high-tech hide and seek”, sharing many aspects with orienteering, treasure-hunting, and waymarking.
Geocaches are currently placed in over 100 countries around the world and on all seven continents, including Antarctica.[1] As of April 10, 2010, there are over 1,031,429 active geocaches over the world

Carolyn and Mann have been geocaching for a few years now.  Our first goal is to find at least one cache in every state.  Click on the link to see our progress.
