Jun 29, 2014 - Northeast Pennsylvania

Today was a normal day of driving. I covered about 170 miles up and down the Appalachian or Pocono Mountains. Going up the one side of the hill sucked up gas and the down side of the hill was a matter of controlling the RV at speeds in excess of the speed limit. Then another mile or two there would be another hill to climb and so on. The RV park that I am staying at tonight is about 15 miles off of the interstate and deep in the woods. Large oaks and smaller maple trees. Everyone staying in this park seems to be convinced that it is...

Aug 13, 2010 - We Lost a Friend this Week

Over the past few years we have visited Charlie's Service Center near Salt Lake City twice and chronicled both visits on this website. Charlie's was a unique place where the customers became part of the family and the repair experience was made enjoyable by the welcoming attitude of Charlie and his wife Vicki. Today we learned that Charlie was killed when a commuter train impacted the truck he was driving. Both Sue and I were shocked and dismayed at the news. Our deepest sympathies go out to Vicki and the rest of Charlie's family and...

Aug 12, 2010 - Honesdale, PA

We are currently at the Countryside Campground about 6 miles north of Honesdale. The insurance adjuster has been here and we are planning to get the See Ya work done in Wilkes Barre beginning August 23. That will change our plans for the next few weeks. In the meantime it will be on to Florida, NY on Monday for a couple of baseball days in NYC with three friends.

Jul 20, 2009 - Two More PA Rallies

Friday, July 10 thru Sunday, July 19 We arrived early afternoon at the Country Acres Campground just east of Lancaster, PA. After getting set up, we drove to an RV parts & supplies store in a nearby town to get a new AC heating element for our refrigerator. The old one failed while we were at Hershey - thank heaven for being able to run off propane for a few days! We also had hoped to pick up our mail at the local post office. But this was Friday and the P.O. here closes at noon on Friday. Friday evening we joined the Friendly Maryland...

Sep 20, 2008 - Back Roads Driving is NOT for the Faint of Heart

We started our trip along the scenic US Route 6 across Pennsylvania early from our campground in Gardiner, New York. We had been dissatisfied with the route getting to that campground because the road was narrow, curvy, and in need of some repair. In our driving around this area we had discovered state route 208 which was not far from our campground and it intersected with I-84 allowing us to also miss the awful road New Yorkers refer to as the “New York Thruway”. Since we had driven route 208 we knew there were a couple small towns in...

Sep 19, 2008 - The End of the New York Journey

What a fantastic summer with so many wonderful memories. But, alas, our time has come to start heading south. Of course, we haven’t seen all there is to see in such a large state, but that just gives us reason to come again. This entry will end the New York adventure and I will be starting a new journey with tomorrow’s posting. We are officially turning south now to head home for the holidays. We are heading back to Tennessee by way of Columbus, Ohio to visit with Gene’s family there. Gotta get across Pennsylvania some way so we thought it...

Sep 27, 2007 - Amblin'

We drove a couple of hours to Honesdale, PA, and the Countryside Family Campground, lead by our trusty GPS, Simone. Simone is very precise and polite. She shows us where we are and where we're going with a nice, bright green line. She "shows us the money" (where the ATMs are) and the locations of other amenities we made need to find along the way. She tells us when a turn is coming up, and "ding-dings" when we're right on it. And if, for some strange reason, we miss a turn in spite of Simone's precision, she doesn't make a derogatory remark...
