May 23, 2018 - AT Hike Days 94 - 98. Duncannon - Hamburg PA 70.7 miles

5/19. Stealth. 1165.7 17.8 5/20. Stealth. 1184.6. 18.9 5/21. Stealth. 1204. 19.4 5/22. Port Clinton 1218.6. 14.6 5/23. zero Hamburg This section was notable for the crappy trail conditions. We expected rocks in PA - and got them - small rocks, jagged rocks, rocks that apparently were planted with their sharpest edges sticking up just to hurt hikers feet, boulders, unstable rocking rocks, etc. BUT, unluckily for us, the incessant rain also created rivers of mud mixed with the rocks. For 4 solid hiking days, a miserable trail. The icing on...

Apr 18, 2017 - Day 7 and getting close

One week on the road. A little under 800 miles for the past two days. We stayed at the White Barrel Winery in Christianburg, VA last night - a member of the Harvest Host program. Very nice wines and, yes, of course we bought some. The HH program has worked out well for them. This was our first HH visit since we signed up at the Escapade. Tonight we are at our favorite campground in Hamburg, PA. Also the most expensive that we stay at. Our faithful readers know why. For others - google Hamburg to see what is there. VT tomorrow. All the way?...

Apr 26, 2016 - O'Betty's and more

Monday April 25 We drove mostly on US 50 again today with a final stretch on I-79 from Clarksburg, WV to Morgantown, WV. Ohio has a number of state and/or federal parks along this route. Again – much of the road was good with wide shoulders. And some was not. We were reminded why WV has the nickname of Mountaineer State! So – what does Athens, OH have to offer? Glad you asked. Why, it is O’Betty’s Red Hot! Dogs and sausages. Not only do they have a gourmet selection of dogs and sausages but they have the only hot dog museum we have been to...

Apr 6, 2010 - Return trip Day 3

April Fools Day! I was nice to Ginger and didn't pull an April's Fool on here!! We pulled out of the Four Oaks at 8:08 after taking advantage of their coffee and danish and continued up I-95. I didn't see my Confederate friends. It was clear and yet another fine day for travel. We debated routes somewhat but knew that we wanted to end up at Cabela's in Hamburg, PA for the night. They have potable water and a nice dump station. The northbound traffic on I-95 was still very heavy. We opted to take 95 through Richmond instead of 295 around....

Jun 24, 2006 - Time to move to Krumsville

Today was moving day. We got a late start because the new campground wasn't going to have sites available for us until after 12 o'clock. We arrived about 12:30 and all was well. After setting up and lunch we carpooled to Roadside America. This is a fascinating miniature village, created and crafted by Laurence Gieringer. He started making little houses before age 10 and continued until his death in 1963. The exhibit includes homes, churches, public buildings, farm houses and barns along with trains, trolleys, and horse-drawn carriages and...
