Jul 8, 2012 - Presque Isle State Park

What a beautiful day! We traveled over to Presque Isle State Park to explore Lake Erie. What an amazing place! This will be on our list for a returned visit and we'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys biking, boating, hiking, kayaking and beaching. This is a place to visit! We drove around the 13.5 mile peninsula and viewed 11 beaches, though every nook had a sandy beach. We saw numerous trails that are flat and well shaded. Anxious to get on the water of Lake Erie, we took a 90 minute boat tour, to view the isle from the water. After...

Jul 7, 2012 - Ugh! Flat tire

We are so loving our air-conditioners as we woke to a hot, muggy morning. We were moving a little slow today, but got packed up and were on the road by 10:30, heading across Pennsyvania on I-80 towards Erie, PA. This was our first long traveling day. Things started out well, until George said, "Oh no!!" We were about an hour into our trip watching the temperture rise to the high 90s, when pop, a tire on the camper blew. George pulled over to the side of the road, while Lisa called Road Assistance. Yes, this is why you buy those plans. We...

Jun 3, 2012 - Sara's Campground, Erie, PA

We decided to drive onto Erie, we got past Arkon and Cleveland with very little traffic even though we found a lot of road construction. It was a nice drive, lots of wonderful scenery. We found Sara's Campground, a nice RV park that has one part right on Lake Erie and the other (where we are staying) across the road from Lake Erie. We had to stay across the road since they do not allow dogs in lake side campground. We are glad we didn't stay they, the roller coaster at the amusement park butts up against Sara's, very noisy. Much quieter...

May 15, 2012 - Depart pour Erie, Pensylvanie

Direction Erie en prenant la route 6 Est, ensuite la 20 et longer la route le long du Lac Erie en prenant la vieille 531. Eviter les autoroutes le plus possible. Le long du Lac, quelques belles maisons avec vue a en pu finir, mais la plupart ordinaires (un peu comme le long de Wasaga Beach, On). On sait que l'on s'approche de la maison car on a vu notre premier Timmy depuis 35 jours. Il a fait tres beau aujourd'hui. A+

Sep 22, 2011 - OTRA - PA - Erie

09/22/11 Well, this morning was rather interesting. We were getting ourselves ready to leave here, not in any big rush (good thing for that, too!), and as Bob was pulling the truck forward to move into position to hook up, Sharon (a camping friend) and I heard this clunk-clunk sound. I thought maybe it was something in the bed of the truck so Bob backed up a little, no sound, then forward again…clunk, clunk a lot! Ohmigosh, the drive train or something (thought I) and then Joe, campground owner who was at a trailer several lots up the line...

Sep 18, 2011 - Day 20

Our sightseeing today started at Presque-Isle State Park to view a couple of lighthouses that protect(ed) Erie Harbor. As we entered the park, we discovered that today was also the day they were running the Erie Marathon and Celiac Walk along the park roadways. They were only using the left lane of two-lane one-way roads, so it did not create a problem. Once inside the park, we found a monument park to Oliver Hazard Perry. History buffs will remember him as defeating the British in the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812. He also had a...

Sep 17, 2011 - Day 19

A travel day today from Mt Eaton, OH to Erie, PA. Staying at the Presque-Isle Passage Campground. We traveled through Canton (Home of the Football Hall of Fame), Akron and Cleveland. Hope to go see a couple of lighthouses in the area tomorrow and maybe the Maritime Museum. Great day, sunny, started out cool enough for a sweatshirt, but ended up a T-shirt afternoon.

Aug 25, 2011 - RV's for everyone

We only get up early when travel demands it and this was one of those days. Our friends were waiting in their driveway when we pulled up at 7:30am. It was a long driving day for Ken, and Charlie and Polly enjoyed watching the world go by from a unique perspective. As the lunch time rest area neared, we prepared the meal as the rig bounced down the highway. I saw a look of terror in their eyes similar to the looks I saw on TV from the folks that were in the Virginia earthquake a few days ago. Otherwise the day was uneventful, which is the...

Jul 29, 2011 - To the doctors with Brooke and a Yeungling beer run

It was a long travel day from Indiana Dunes to Erie. Brooke's fever was scary last night, she woke up hallucinating with a temp of 103+. At midnight she asked if she could go "over there", then she passed out. She woke again, eyes wide open pointing directly at the couch saying "I want to go over there with Ava in the pool.". The Motrin finally kicked in and I tried to cool her with a cloth. Jack got up to help out, thankfully. It's tough doing that alone. Once she was comfortable and asleep I left her on the couch and tried to get some...

Jul 20, 2011 - Down time

The pickup needed some attention so today I went in to town and found a red neck garage for an oil change. After checking for a cool breeze off the water (wasn't there) we went back into town for a meal. The air conditioner just barely keeps up under these conditions. Not a problem if we travel north during the summer. I have wired for a second AC if we decide we need it. Bill

Jul 19, 2011 - Got an erie feeling

Traveled to Erie, Pennslavania. We traveled interstate most of the way on some really good roads and really bad roads. We are backed into a site looking out on Lake Erie. The utilities are on the wrong side so I had to run extensions for everything underneath the trailer. The view is nice but am not sure it is worth the trouble. The heat finally caught up with us and the AC is working hard. As the sun is dropping, we are picking up some shade. Bill

May 30, 2011 - Erie, Pennsylvania

Today is our final day in Erie, Pennsylvania. We have had a lot of rain, and the Park we are in is a mud hole!!! Our lack of planning regarding the Memorial Day weekend is the reason we are stuck in the mud. We did visit Presque Isle and the Presque Isle State Park which is truly a magnificent State Park. Thelma, our dog that hates water, actually they both do, was trying to get her sister to chase her across the sand, and was shocked when she found out the sand ran out at the water’s edge. She went clear in and was not a happy dog. I just...
