Apr 17, 2019 - Clarksboro, NJ

This is a nice stopover about 220 miles from home and is one of the only RV parks open year-round RV within driving distance to Newington. The park itself is nothing to brag about and I wouldn't want to stay more than one night. It's only advantage is it's location. It's also become popular and we have to make sure we have a reservation, because by dark it is usually full. Getting here wasn't too bad, although we did have lots of traffic around DC. Once we got beyond Annapolis and over the Chesapeake bridge, it turned into rural countryside...

Dec 1, 2018 - Clarksboro, NJ

I am very happy when a travel day is uneventful. I am especially apprehensive on the first day of the trip because that's when we find out if everything is working like it is supposed to, and today everything went well. The cats usually adjust well to the daily travel, but we always cross our fingers and the first day usually involves some meowing. It requires some vigilance to determine if one of our kitties is needing to use the litter box and if so we have to encourage them to do so. Today was fine and we avoided any CATastrophes. They...

Our trip today went very well! I am always a little worried about the starts of these trips. Did we forget anything important? Is everything working right on the camper and truck? Are the cats going to be OK? Are we going to hit heavy traffic or construction? Everything went well with a few minor snags. The cats were great. The truck was fine. All our equipment worked great. The hot water heater took a while to heat up but was fine after a short while. The GPS took us on a strange route from the NJ Turnpike to the campground. We traveled...

It was a long day of driving to get here. Although it was a medium mileage day at about 290 miles, it was long because we had about 50 miles of traffic lights in Maryland. We were just barely able to set up before dark at 4:30. We should have gotten an earlier start. We will get an early start tomorrow because we will be up early and excited to get home.

This is where the driving adventure really begins. From Suffolk, Virginia we head east to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. The Bridge portion is about 14 miles long with 2 half-mile tunnels in the middle situated on artificial islands. The traffic lane in the tunnels are really narrow, but traveling on Saturday morning made it easier because the traffic was so light. Going north up the Delmarva Peninsula is great and just requires that we follow the map and the GPS. It's not interstate highway but it's way better than going through...

After some final preparation and 5 hours of driving, we made it to Clarksboro, NJ. The Timberlane Campground is a pleasant surprise. We looked long and hard for a campground in mid-state New Jersey and it looks like we have found one! We want to be far enough along for a day of driving, but not so far south that we have a grueling first day. We will use this place again on the trip north. For some reason the just aren't any campgrounds in the northern part of the state. Weather is unseasonably warm at 60 degrees! No concerns about snow or...

Well, that didn't take too long. We're off on an unplanned trip to meet with our travel companions for this Winter. Time for some discussions of when we'll leave and what route we're going to look at going across the country. Timberlane Campground is about equal distance for all of us to travel, about 90 miles. After two nights, Rocky and Lana have to leave for other engagements. We'll stay a few more days with Glenn and Connie and do a little exploring in Philadelphia. It's only about 20 or 30 minutes into the city from here as long as we...

2015-2016

Jul 19, 2012 - Clarksboro, New Jersey

At 0600 we left the Pumpkin Patch for Littleton, Massachusetts and the Minuteman Campground RV Park. The weather was warm and the skies were clear. We encountered very little traffic throughout Maine until we got near the Maine/New Hampshire border when the traffic began to increase. The tolls where the worst part of the trip. It seemed that every twenty miles there was another toll booth. The Maine Turnpike runs into the New Hampshire Turnpike and the New Hampshire Turnpike charged about $14.00 for a lousy 12 miles of highway to connect...

We are now in Clarksboro, New Jersey at the Timberlane RV Park. This the most convenient campground for visiting friends and family here in New Jersey. The drive from College Park, Maryland to Clarksboro was 129 miles and took us just under 2.5 hours. The traffic was relatively light everywhere and the roads are pretty good. The roads should be good because the tolls to cross Maryland and Delaware were fifty five dollars. Our stay in Clarksboro will only be two nights and very early Thursday morning we will leave for Foxboro,...

Oct 21, 2011 - Philadelphia

October 20 Several freeways and two hours after leaving this morning we arrive at Timberline Campground in Clarksboro, New Jersey, just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We drove into the city and parked in a garage downtown near a visitor information, the first person we chatted with said “Welcome to the city of brotherly love”. Philadelphia is full of history, the first thing we did is find the Liberty Bell, then we went on a historical walk by Benjamin Franklin’s townhouses, the city hall and other historic...

On The Road 2011

Oct 8, 2011 - The United States Tour Begins - Bangor, Salisbury Beach, Newburgh, Clarksboro

It was an easy drive from St. Andrews, NB to Bangor, Maine on October 1. It was rainy and a bit windy. There was no problem at the border crossing. We opted to go through the new crossing which has a truck portion and a specified lane for buses and RVs. It's a little wider than the regular car lanes. It certainly was not very busy. We arrived in Bangor (actually at Hermon) and booked in for one night at Pumpkin Patch RV. It had been recommended while we were in Moncton. A very nice park with big sites. It is a Passport America park so it...

Oct 2, 2011 - Clarksboro, New Jersey

We left Littleton yesterday, Saturday October 1 around 0650 and arrived at Timberlane RV Park in Clarksboro, New Jersey around 1330. The trip was about 330 miles and the weather included overcast skies all the way with a mingling of light showers and heavy downpours. Traffic was heavier than we expected on a Saturday morning but with only two exceptions traffic moved at or above the speed limit. The last journal update was written this past Wednesday in Littleton, MA as Ross was waiting for the arrival of the "Crappy Switch". The switch...
