Jun 9, 2019 - Zippo and Kinzua

I’m having a hell of a time uploading pictures, so I’ll probably use Facebook until I figure out what the problem is. If we’re not friends on FB, look me up if you want to see my images of this trip. Today was a 2 stop day. We visited the Zippo/Case Museum in Bradford. We didn't know what to expect, but it turned out to be a pretty interesting couple of hours. The visit starts out with the Zippo car parked outside museum where the street lights are giant Zippo lighters. The is no entrance fee, but you must pass through the Zippo/Case shop...

2019 Family Meetup

Jun 8, 2019 - Pennsylvania Wilds

We drove nearly due north to McKean County, also known as The Pennsylvania Wilds. It was an interesting drive to get here mostly on I99, I80, and US219. Winnie did well running up and down the Appalachian Mountains that stretch across the northwesternl part of Pennsylvania. We’ve not been in this part of the state very much, only passing through on I80 in the early spring on 2018. I’m amazed at how much forested land there is and how few people. We’re staying in the Kinzua East KOA for the next couple of nights. As with many location we’ve...

2019 Family Meetup

Aug 21, 2017 - Wood Haven RV (8/14 - 8/17/17)

While staying at Wood Haven, we saw a lot of interesting places. In town is the Zippo/Case Museum. Here they make Zippo lighters and Case knives. The museum is free of charge. We wandered around in there and watched the history and progression of the Zippo lighters. They were made for so many different people, occasions, groups, etc. It was a very interesting museum. At the end of the tour is a perpetual motion machine. There are a number of golf balls running through it going in different directions. We sat and watched it for about 10...

Jun 30, 2016 - Day 6 - Watkins Glen to Bradford

Watkins Glen. Our day to get a little exercise so we started out with breakfast and had pancakes :). We walked to the South Entrance and began our walk into the Gorge. It was 1.5 miles long one way. We stared out by descending. Oh what beauty we saw, Well look for yourselves. Watkins Glen has 19 waterfalls and 800+ steps. At the end we climbed steps equivalent to a 70 story Office building. These pics are just a sampling. Now onto to some more riding!!!!! What a gorgeous day. Sky's were mostly sunny and the temps were in the...

Sep 29, 2014 - Day 37

100.8 miles, 15.o4 average speed, 45.73 maximum speed, 5508.00 feet climbing. Day started out foggy and several people elected to that a bump up the road. We started with a 800 foot climb which is always a good way to start. The fog would lift and I would put on my sunglasses - fog would return sunglasses came off - at one point I was doing a steep descent and fog rolled in could not see anything at 36 miles an hour - that was fun.

Jun 13, 2010 - Zippo/Case Museum

Woke up to light rain which kept us from seeing Rock City Park, just south of Olean, NY, since they closed due to the inclement weather - brochure showed some great rock formations - oh well, we will have to see that on another trip. We drove south to Bradford, PA instead and saw the Zippo/Case Museum. It was interesting seeing the various zippo lighter designs. The zippo repair shop was closed since it is Sunday, but we saw the shop where they will repair any zippo that is repairable for free. There was a couple of exhibits with lighters...

Sep 10, 2008 - Would you believe it happened ?

Would you believe that we are spending the night in a Walmart parking lot. I never thought the day would come. It's not too bad so far, we will see what the night brings. We had a week long reservation at Allegany Mountains Resort in East Otto, New York but when we arrived we decided we didn't really want to stay there. There was goose poop everywhere, and I mean everywhere. Also there was alot of mud. It was just saying "leave now before you unhitch" and so we did. We could have stayed at another campground for the night but right now we...

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

Jun 28, 2008 - Saturday, Bradford, PA (281 miles)

Driving across Ohio into the countryside of Pennsylvania is always a pleasant drive, although the KOA campground in Bradford (near the NY border) showed signs of mud from recent rains. We didn't escape it either, and had a horrendous thunderstorm in the evening. We made one stop today at Titusville, PA for the Drake Well Museum. It's the site where Edwin L. Drake drilled the first oil well that launched the modern petroleum industry in 1859, changing the world forever!
