Temperature 71 Degrees, Overcast with Occasional Rain Showers

The Quest for Wilbear Wright and The Aviation Trail

We were out and about again today in our quest for Wilbear Bear. We had a required stop we had to make to qualify for my very own bear and that was where we were headed.

And that stop was. . .

This was another excellent museum devoted to the life and career of the Wright Brothers. Here is a snapshot of what we found here.

They were numerous exhibits regarding their very early years.

There were exhibits that spoke of their early interest in flight.

Their first successful career was that of printers and publishers.

But it was not the only one.

Their second successful career was building, repairing and selling bicycles.

Then they became intrigued with the possibility of flying machines.

But is was not always easy, sometimes it was two steps forward and three back.

But they refused to give up.

So this is just a small part of what we saw and learned today. This is definitely a museum that deserves to be on everyone’s bucket list of places to visit. It chronicles an important chapter in the history of our country. And it speaks to what can be accomplished with hard work, a belief in yourself, and perseverance.

So, I have my necessary eight stops fulfilled. Tomorrow, well tomorrow I hope to have my very own Wilbear Wright teddy bear!

Thanks again for spending some time with us.  It’s always great to be able to share our story with family and friends. Comments? Feel free to share them with me. And always remember, cherish every moment of every day that God gives you and live those moments to the fullest. 

Our continuing mission remains the same: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before.


  1. You know, as I began to read this, I wondered, was anyone else trying to invent a machine that a person could fly! You answered my question. I am also impressed that these two young men who did not graduate from high school could do scientific research and complicated equations – such as the one to figure lift. Wow! This has all been very interesting, and best of all – you are on track to get that Wilbear Bear. Good luck!
