One of the most rewarding things that I've learned in life is, 'You Can't keep It, If You Don't Give It'.
Keeping things honest, doing the next right thing, and then seeing all of the inspiration and achievements that your own sibling,'s, Grand children enjoy is what true life is all about, on and on.
Thank you The Real BigGuy,
Terry

Post Anothah

The Mojave Desert receives less than 2 inches (51 mm) of rain a year and is generally between 2,000 and 5,000 feet (610 and 1,520 m) in elevation. The Mojave Desert also contains the Mojave National Preserve, as well as the lowest and hottest place in North America: Death Valley at 282 ft (86 m) below sea level, where the temperature often surpasses 120 F (49 C) from late June to early August. Zion National Park in Utah lies at the junction of the Mojave, the Great Basin Desert, and the Colorado Plateau. Despite its aridity, the Mojave (and particularly the Antelope Valley in its southwest) has long been a center of alfalfa production, fed by irrigation coming from groundwater and from the California Aqueduct.
The Mojave is a desert of temperature extremes and two distinct seasons. Winter months bring comfortable daytime temperatures, which occasionally drop to around 25 F (−4 C) on valley floors, and below 0 F (−18 C) at the highest elevations. Storms moving from the Pacific Northwest can bring rain and in some places even snow. More often, the rain shadow created by the Sierra Nevada as well as mountain ranges within the desert such as the Spring Mountains, bring only clouds and wind. In longer periods between storm systems, winter temperatures in valleys can approach 80 F (27 C).
Spring weather continues to be influenced by Pacific storms, but rainfall is more widespread and occurs less often after April. By early June, it is rare for another Pacific storm to have a significant impact on the region's weather; and temperatures after the middle of May are normally above 90 F (32 C) and frequently above 100 F (38 C).
Summer weather is dominated by heat. Temperatures on valley floors can soar above 120 F (49 C) and above 130 F (54 C) at the lowest elevations. Low humidity, high temperatures, and low pressure, draw in moisture from the Gulf of Mexico creating thunderstorms across the desert southwest known as the North American monsoon.

Well trust me, that old Buick straight eight cylinder had the torque required to tow us very comfortably at the posted speed limits of the day and we were never pulled over for going under the road speed limits anywhere!
However, we were over length and pulled over many times for permit checks. (AND, Thank God We Took The Northern Route)!!
Dad hadn't picked up a permit for Illinois........ and don't you know that we were pulled over by Illinois's finest. He measured with his ruler, tape measure and found that we were 97 inches over length!
A justice of the peace was wakened and Mom & Dad were taken off to court.

"One dollar an inch"! was the penalty.
Dad said, "Well your honor, we don't have that kind of money so you will have to put us and our 9 children in jail."....

"Twenty dollars, and get out of here." was the judge's response.

So we payed the fine and traveled on to California.
Thank you Tis.
With Love,
Terry

Although we were always the Good Guys, and probably got that TV series ( Highway Patrol ), off the ground...
Now normally, my Dad would see a cruiser following us for awhile in account because they were taking notice about just how outnumbered they were. So, more likely than not, they would call in for backup, so that when they decided to pull us over it was more like a hornets nest with cruisers coming out of the wood'Work! Good thing that helicopters weren't more available back in them days, or it would have been even more costly to the local economy...
I think that I have already covered ( donut shops too ).

So out of all those stops only one ticket? That's pretty good. And your Dad was pretty smart because obviously they didn't want 9 kids in jail!

Did you say how long the whole trip was? And did you stay out west once you got there? I love your story.

Yes Tis, and I understand when folks use a me,, myself, or I cellphone to view these photos and story, it is very easy to miss bits and pieces.

A quote from post # 170. " Eventually we took the Southern Route and returned to New England, ( some 6 and some change years later ) in a 1947 Plymouth Woody station wagon 9 passenger six cylinder with headers and dual exhaust, a huge luggage rack mounted on the roof, towing a 12' U'hall...
( Yet A Whole nothah story ) ! "

Wow so you staying on the west coast for 6+ years and then came back in The Plymouth?

What happened to the Magic Carpet?

Sorry if these are repeat questions, there are a lot of posts I probably missed the answers to these.

Not all Peaches & Cream, I attended, from Kindergarten, 23 different Schools, up until the 9th grade in East Bridgewater MA. And yet a whole Nothah Story.

Default Hobby Lobby, For The Retired??

Side Note, I mentioned back in post#31 how I became frustrated trying to post our Travel Story here on this Website in a different area, and having to give up.
So A friend of mine gave me a VH tape of the movie 'The Long Long Trailer, with Lucy and Dezi and my Grandson and I watched it together at the camp on Paugus Bay, and I never saw him Laugh so hard and much.
I did some research and found out about Clinton Twiss's book being the basis of the Movie.
Now, I always had that Gypsy Spirit because of my early experiences, and I bought a 28' Travelmate that the wife and I kept loaded and ready to Gitti-up-Go on weekends and up to Cape Breton Island where Mon and Dad enjoyed a vacation home during the summers, "Mom's Homeland", and then they would travel south and stop and visit with all O us Siblings scattered all ovah the country and on out to California to spend the winters with Sister's Linda and Sandra and Brother Bob whom remained there.
Now, to make a Loooog story short, I found an Off-Topic Forum out at Airstream Forums with a thread about The Long Long Trailer By Clinto Twiss, and started posting there about our journey West.
This was in 2009, and I started posting Post#16, and the thread went Global with some 43,000 views since. They even Garnered me with four Rivets.

Mon 5/20/2019 9:37 AM
Thank You Terry these photos brought back memories. The Rugg family was so unique as photos help relate. Your parents were special for sure, your Mom was amazing. The photos are wonderful but you really had to be there.
My neighbors in Eastbridgewater in the early 60's was the Rugg family of 10 children and me #11 ( there a whole lot, my love of music, automobiles & facts of life were hatched next door), a very special family. Life magazine did a spread on the family's cross country adventure. Mrs Rugg also won Queen for a day. Mr Rugg was an inventor, Mrs. Rugg was an amazing Matriarch.
PS: Oh yes and a shared love of horses (in both yards) existed as well'......

Ironically I was the only sibling that continued with a home on wheels and the Wife, Daughter and I kept it loaded up for weekends swimming down on Cape Cod, or Vermont, Main, New Hampshire or the Big E out in Springfield Ma. Advantage, adventure and many fond memories.
Here we are on the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island NS.

Yes, and thank you again Don!
I did mention in post #37 here about having trouble in the format of the Blog section, ( getting duplicated posts when posting and not being able to correct them at the time with my very limited computer knowledge.


That was also when I was doing research on The Long Long Trailer by Clinton Twiss that I found the thread out on Airstream Off Topic Forum and stated posting there. They all enjoyed the story and pictures as well.
