May 5, 2019 - Clear Spring MD to Johnstown PA

Driving through the Pennsylvania mountains can be challenging on a good day and even more so on a rainy, foggy day. I originally planned to spend today touring Pittsburgh but decided on Johnstown instead because of the museums. It was an indoor kind of day. I first stopped at the Johnstown Flood National Memorial which is located where the South Fork Fishing and Hunting Club fixed up a derelict earthworks to form Lake Conemaugh. They didn't follow up with recommendations made by the Cambria company engineers for additional drainage outlets....

Oct 2, 2013 - More Farm (facebook type entries)

Wednesday, October 2,2013 On this day we had made arrangements with another cousin Carol and her husband Bud to play golf. The four of us went out and played 9 holes of golf and then we went to Ryan's for dinner. We had a very nice visit with them. No one plays golf very well but we did have a lot of laughs and an enjoyable day. After we left Bud and Carol, we returned to Esther's place and visited with her. We also saw Rick out on the front steps and we went up there to visit with him and chat for a while. It was nice that we had a chance...

North To Alaska 2013

Sep 27, 2013 - To the Farm

On this day we drove from Zanesville, Ohio to Davidsville, Pennsylvania. As we drove through Pennsylvania, we noticed an exit sign for Yukon, PA and after being in the Yukon Territory for so many days over the summer, we wondered if we had landed back up in Canada. As we drove through Pennsylvania, we noticed an exit sign for Yukon, PA The Virginia Creeper crawled up the trees and its autumn color of deep red really made it stand out in the wooded areas. The goldenrod was in full bloom everywhere we looked and the yellow color really added...

Aug 9, 2011 - Sunday, August 3, 1997 Smithtown, NY Johnstown, PA

Sunday, August 3, 1997 Smithtown, NY Johnstown, PA Though we planned to be spontaneous on the road, the beginning of our trip out west commenced with the precision of a military operation. Sully finished the last minute maintenance on the Volvo at 1800 hours, Rob was picked up forty-five minutes later, and I barely finished my dinner when I heard the Volvo’s horn in the driveway at 7 o’clock. I chucked my duffel bag into the trunk, kissed my mother, shook my father’s hand and was off. We left Smithtown a minute after 7, but our...

May 19, 2010 - Day 12

Left Niagara Falls early, crossed the Rainbow Bridge back into the good old USA. The city of Niagara Falls, New York is just a little different from the Canadian counterpart. We ending up driving through a very ethnic part of the city if you know what I mean! Our goal is to visit every US state in our travels, so New York makes number 37. Drove up to Lockport, New York at almost the end of the historic Erie Canal. Impressive to say the very least. Two still functioning locks in Lockport, the Canal is 300+ miles in length and mostly dug by...

Oct 22, 2008 - Good Friends, 9-11 Memorial & Johnstown Flood

Writing from Madison/Pittsburgh KOA, PA Update on our friend, Dick. They decided his problem was possibly from an acid reflex problem in his throat. Hoping meds and watching diet will help. We’re glad it was nothing serious. Yesterday, spent the afternoon with my old boss from Fort Zumwalt, Penny. Penny moved out here after she retired to be closer to her son. We got there in time for lunch. Since Penny is a gourmet cook, lunch was wonderful. We loved seeing Penny’s new home and had lots of great conversation. Penny & I re-hashed the “good...

Aug 25, 2008 - Day 80 - Washington, PA to Johnstown, PA

Got up, had breakfast and said goodbye to Ted and Carol again (I believe that it was the 6th time). They were heading to Pottstown to drop off their rig for repairs and we were going to Johnstown to start our trip northward. We then traveled together on I-79 and I-70 and parted ways just before the turnpike entrance as we had to stop for diesel. Grandma is getting antsy to see the munchkins and has started counting the days! It was an easy drive of 104 miles today with the normal crazy Pennsylvania Turnpike traffic. We arrived in Johnstown...

Oct 21, 2006 - Just Another Travel Day

The reports are almost over and so is the trip. We should be home tomorrow. Today was another traveling day. It was uneventful which is always good. We did find a nice campground for the night. It's right off I-81 and is open all year, which is important to us when we return from our winter trek in April. I have really enjoyed sharing my trip with all of you - I think it made me try to be more aware of things around me, so this could be interesting and not too boring. Bob is aleady planning next summer's trip - the Civil War Battlefields of...

Jun 4, 2006 - Mexico, PA

Mexico, PA Day 1: We met with our Air Force friends, Cliff and Judy Goss, whom we were stationed with in Puerto Rico some 45 years ago. We met for lunch at a Lewistown restaurant and then went to their house. Most of the afternoon was spent getting reacquainted and going over old times. Cliff took us for a drive through their local Amish farm areas explaining about their lives and ways. We had a nice supper at the Goss home and then returned to the RV. Day 2: We met at the Goss' house for a trip to Pine Creek Gorge in Tioga State Park near...

Mar 16, 2006 - On the Road At Last

We thought we would get on the road early for our first driving day, but we still had to finish the tow package installation and pick up a few more items at Camping World. Finally at 10:00 AM, we started the engine and began our trip home. While I was in Texas, for our grand daughter's wedding in December, I arranged for a day of driving instruction. My instructor was 84 years old, but really knew his business. He still drives RVs all over the country for delivery. He matched up the RV as close as possible with what we had purchased and it...
