My wife and I have a nephew that lives in Pennsylvania. We decided that we are going to plan a trip to go up and see him and his wife. We live in Florida and thought maybe, while we were up there, we would travel around and do some roadtrips  and visit some of their sights. Like a mini-vacation if you will. After looking all over the internet, we finally came across a site named Roadtrip-a-Matic and started checking it out.

Once we started looking at Roadtrip-a-Matic and all the things they had to offer, we did not have to look any further. They have a whole list of things to do like: arts, culture, attractions, events,festivals and much more. Or how about a planned out destination such as,  pa-roadtrips , scenic byways, Civil War trails and Artisan trails. They also give a list of places to stay from bed & breakfasts to camping grounds for those who like to rough it! Roadtrip-a-Matic also furnishes you with some great travel tools and some very useful trip ideas.

The place my wife liked best was the travel deals and events. This gave her a full package including the room, where to stay, plus cost, events going on and the best dates to attend. The problem we have now is to decide what event and what dates to go; I know this will be easy to plan with Roadtrip-a-Matic!

Maybe YOU can help? Check out Roadtrip-a-Matic and let me know in the comments, which travel package or getaway would you take your family on. Please help me before my wife and I start growling at each other, “because you see”, I want the Artisan Trails and she wants the Romantic Getaways!

Ham Stew

Simple, easy and tasty too! I can just picture the pioneer ladies fixing up something of this nature over an open fire, without the frozen green beans of course!



1 fully cooked ham steak (about 1 lb)
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pkg (10 oz) frozen green beans
3 medium potatoes, cut in one-inch cubes
1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes
1 cup water
1 teas salt
3 tbsp flour
1/4 cup water


Heat oil in a Dutch oven; cut ham in cubes and brown lightly in oil. Remove ham and replace with the peppers, garlic and onions; saute until onion is transparent in color. Add the ham, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, water and salt. Cover and simmer for 35-40 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Combine the flour and water to make a paste and stir into the stew. Cook and stir until mixture thickens and bubbles; cook for 1 more minute and serve up with some corn bread and enjoy!
