Leaving Fort Meade for Hershey we had to head in a northwest direction. And only 68 miles later we arrived at the RV Park to find our ideal site under some trees that afforded us plenty of shade which on some of those hot days played well keeping us and the RV cool. We'll be here only for 6 days and have several fun things to see and do. Amongst them are Hershey Chocolate World, Indian Echo Cavern, Gettysburg Battlefield, Lititz Pretzels, ride on a Mennonite Horse drawn Wagon, do some fishing. Whew, it's going to be a full week.
