Our sight

The dump station

Tuesday we hitched up and headed to Pennsylvania.....west and south. We continued our journey down US 7 through Massachusetts and into Connecticut. This continued to be a pretty drive through the Berkshires. We pulled into a parking place with the Airstream and enjoyed our lunch in Great Barrington, MA. Isn't great to have your home with you?

We turned west into New York state stopping in Poughkeepsie to do some banking. While I was in Wells Fargo, Tom learned of the earthquake in Virginia. The person he was talking to said they some folks there had felt it. We don't think we felt it....but you never know as some of these roads can be pretty rough!

We stopped at a rest area off the interstate in Pennsylvania. Tom struck up a conversation with the man parked next to us......come to find out....he was from Ball Ground, GA.....good to see someone from Georgia.

After Flo, our GPS, led us through really backroads in Pennsylvania, we arrived at Hemlock Campground. This is a Passport America campground with 50% off. This is another gem. As you can see from the pictures the owners truly have a sense of humor. Our site was wonderful. Now there are a whole bunch of seasonal campers here...but the sites all seem very neat. We met 2 couples from North Carolina....good to talk with some one from the south! This campground is located in the Pocono Mountains. We would stay here again.

This was a long travel day for us....237 miles....and we had planned to stay two nights. After watching the weather and the track of Irene we decided we needed to get further west and south.....Tobyhanna was in the track....and we know how much rain can be associated with a hurricane. So yesterday we traveled 170 miles to Gettysburg. We will be here 2 nights and then heading further west and south into Virginia. More later.
