East Coast Leaf Peepers!














Cindy and Larry Lubinus have embraced retirement with enthusiasm and family. You can find this couple traveling to sporting activities for their grandchildren as well as planning trips to special destinations in their Class A motor home. But today, we talk to them about a special road trip they took to experience the colors and sites of the NE during peak leaf season. This is a trip and title I long to take...becoming an official "leaf peeper!"
