When Bob and Omi Cummings retired, they purchased a Sprinter van, affectionately named "Big Red," and converted it into a self-contained "home on wheels." Roaming the back roads of North America without a specific destination turned into a grand adventure. Omi shares vignettes describing the mishaps and fun along the way, from finding an antidote for leg cramps to freeing Big Red from sorry predicaments. Bob and Omi meet an interesting array of folks, such as The Pecan Peddler, weaving those encounters into the fabric of this collection. Fun is the bottom line, and you are invited to join them.

About the Author

Naomi (Scruton) Cummings, known as Omi by family and friends since birth, is launching into a new adventure in her old age...writing. She has had many handles to her name:

"PK" - preacher's kid
"UPS Grad" - Class of '58 at University of Puget Sound
"Mrs. Cummings" - wife to fellow student, Bob
"Mom" to three great kids
"OEO community organizer" - fighting the "war on poverty"
"CPS caseworker/supervisor" - protecting abused children
"Grandma" to 7 amazing, talented, and special grandkids
"Retired"- meaning no longer earning a paycheck
"The Little Lady with the Big Laugh" - newspaper headline

Omi's persistent condition of "itchy feet" is only cured by climbing aboard Big Red and heading off into the horizon, with Bob in tow. This book is a result of that disease.
