Sat, 18 Jun: Another road day...

We had a mostly restful Wally nite at the Mansfield PA store. Once we stuffed our ear plugs in our ears we got to sleep and stayed asleep. Does anyone ever visit Wally with a working muffler on their vehicle or is there a law against doing so?

We awoke to a chilly coach. The overnite low was in the fifties so we even ran the gas furnace in the bedroom for a bit to take the chill off. Once vertical and moving under our own power we rustled up breakfast and got the coach ready for the road. Since the car was already connected we were able to roll wheels a few minutes after nine.

We took US 15 business north to US 6 and continued west through north-central Pennsylvania. As was the case yesterday, the highway mostly followed the river with many turns, hills, and small towns. We love rolling thru these small towns and enjoy their well maintained buildings.

US 6 climbed to more than 2,400 feet as we crossed Denton Hill. Bob did all the driving as today's journey was only 142 miles and Sandi wasn't feeling that well (upset tummy). Arriving at Warren PA the route took us thru the center of town, which included some tight turns. A few miles north on US 62 and we were at the Warren Wal*Mart a bit after noon. Today's run was 142 miles with a hill-eaten economy of just over seven mpg

Once we got settled we disconnected the car and visited the Kinzua Bridge State Park near Hamlin. We drove right by the entrance to the State Park on US 6, but it could not accommodate vehicles as large as our coach. So, we had to visit in the car. The park was recommended by fellow RVers Mary Jane and Frank Peloso and it was well worth the trip back.

We returned to the coach late afternoon to a well deserved Happy Hour. Before dinner we started the generator so we had power for the air conditioners as it was almost ninety degrees out and in. The 110 volts AC also came in handy to power the microwave.

This time we got smart. When we finally turned in we inserted the ear plugs first off.
