The Carriage Inn Bed & Breakfast – Charles Town, West Virginia – A Beautiful Place

Donn & Marie Davis, owners of the Carriage Inn  B & B were spectacular hosts. On a scale of 1-10-they were an eleven! They treat their guests as true family! We saw it with other guests, not just ourselves.
The young lady business woman loves to stay at this B&B. She feels safe and happy compared to cold motels and hotels. We love the breakfasts that are made to order, hot and tasty-home-made. Marie truly made us the best breakfast of our trip to W.VA. – June 20 – West, VA. Bob and Barb “Stopping to Smell the Roses” and “On the Road Again.” This time at the Carriage Inn, Historically significant bed & breakfast. We felt the history here in the footsteps of Pres. George Washington’s brother home-a truly historic place to visit. The building is on the Federal Register of Historic Places visited by Southern Generals, Lee, Jackson, Stuart, Ashby and Northern Generals Sheridan and Grant. The rooms are large and comfortable as they were two Centuries ago.  Today, with TV and Internet access, modern electricity and toiletry, so expected and important to us and every visitor as well. Note: they have excellent high speed internet. We enjoyed visiting Harpers Ferry and the Antietam Battlefields. Our visit was too short and we will come back with our bikes, so we can enjoy the countryside. Barb did try her luck at the Charles Town Casino (although we ran out from the smoke smell). The nearby Potomac River is full of small mouth bass. I fly fished a portion of it. 48-catch and release bass.

Delicious asparagus stuffed eggs and real home-made muffins. I still miss her perfectly done bacon!
Our comfy room! It had a fireplace, full bath and great internet and tv.
Washington, General Lee, Sherman were a few of the famous historic figures who sat in this room.
These historic Civil War Generals and officers met at the Historic Carriage Inn in 1860’s.

The Innkeepers Donn and Marie Davis  (304) 728-8003 or (800) 867-9830. They were a delight! We enjoyed their wonderful breakfast in their historic dining room. Check out their website: 



Whats new on the Treasure Coast-A Railroad that Doesn’t Stop, But Goes by FAST!

January 26, 2018

Dear BoatUS Member:

Congressman Brian Mast has requested the U.S. Coast Guard conduct a navigation feasibility survey for the St. Lucie and Loxahatchee Railroad Bridges. Congressman Mast is committed to ensuring boating is not disrupted and safety remains a top priority. Your input is vital to helping make sure officials understand how bridge closings affect your boating.

Plans for a passenger rail service in Florida, until recently known as All Aboard Florida and now named Brightline, could change how drawbridge closings happen in your area, potentially making them more frequent. Hourly trains during most of the day will require additional bridge closings on waterways used by many boaters. You have an opportunity share your views on what this means for your boating

You can submit your views with the the following link:

U.S. Coast Guard Navigation Survey for St. Lucie and Loxahatchee Railroad Bridges

The deadline to comment is February 1, 2018 so speak up now and share this information with your boating friends, neighbors, yacht clubs and marinas.

If you have any additional questions, please contact BoatUS Government Affairs at

Thank you for being a BoatUS Member!

Happy Independence Day, July 4th,2017 to All America and All Our Fine Readers and Supporters

Staying on the farm this week!









AmericanPressTravelNews- July 3rd, Bob and Barb NOT “On the Road Again” today!

We are at our Goose Holler’s farm/ranch in TN., and with this post want to invite everyone to the idea that we all need to fight for our independence by being good, yet wary Americans concerning all aspects of what too much government can mean for our continuing independence. This is NOT a political statement, it is a warning to never be complacent, as we have seen for the past nearly two years. Now again, not being political, but being an American first, I wish everyone as much peace as possible for our quiet and happiness in our homes, neighborhoods, state and nation. Respect our flag symbol, respect our President, respect our veterans and by all means possible, show your support for our law enforcement folks all over the great U.S.A.




The beginning of making a nation! “Go West young man” was once the mantra, but now today “make America Great Again” is the mantra.

Miss Kitty the horse at Goose Holler’ and Jesse the dog love each other and live in peace, why can’t we?
Our holiday lunch!


Memorial Day Everyone Needs to Remember Why We are Not Enslaved-Commentary!!

AmericanPressTravelNews–May 25th, Commentary–By Bob Epstein, Publisher—-Memorial Day is coming up on Monday. We have too many horrible Memorial Days! No I won’t list them here. All smart and decent people older than far too many college age youth, increasingly being taught by some incredibly poor and foolish teachers- even those that call themselves “Professors” (liberal all and socialist leaning, heavily leaning) know what I mean, and have the list burned into their memories. Lest anyone think that all those that have come before and confronted life and death as soldiers for “the Good” not the evil, paid dearly in blood, limb, mental disarray for life, and unfortunately death as well. So, having just been to a children’s science museum in Oak Ridge (home of the nuclear bomb development) TN, and noticing a sculpture created out of steel taken from the Twin Towers horrors, I felt everyone always needs to remember and say never again!
Barb stands at the Memorial Monument and we asked a few of the children that entered the museum what it was, and none of them bothered to read the plaque. They just wanted to play games at the museum. So I asked their teachers why did they dismiss the opportunity to teach their charges about this. Answer: “not very appropriate for their students” by most of them. I should have been stunned. But, I was not! We all live in a nation that has had a dollar become close to worthless, and an educational system amongst many systems, that have become devalued to disastrous depths.
