Oct 10, 2012 - Binghamton, NY to Pine Grove, PA

Another pretty drive today from Binghamton to Pine Grove, PA, which will be our base for the next couple days as we visit the Hershey, PA area. This is a very nice KOA campground, which sits high up on a hill overlooking the mountains and valleys below. Ray got out the grill tonight and we had a great steak dinner. We didn't do any grilling while we were in Lake George because it was rainy most of the time. Tomorrow will be a "chocolate" day as we visit Hershey's Chocolate World :)

Apr 17, 2012 - Pine Grove Campground, Pine Grove, Penn.

Hi Y'all ! Sorry for the short and sweet update yesterday that was just sent out a few minutes ago but the last campground was charging for the Internet and you know how cheap HeyU is. He wouldn't let me send it out on Tango. Well we left Candy Hill in Winchester, Virginia about 8 am and arrived here at Pine Grove Campground, in Penn. shortly before noon. It will be nice to take the afternoon off. The weather again is wonderful! Looking at the thermometer it's 21 deg C or 70 F , the sun is shining brightly and all is quiet. I guess we're...

Nov 12, 2011 - We've made it to Pennsylvania.

Hi Ya'll !!! We've been on the road now for three days. Because of the forcast of a major fall storm we decided to leave the Island on Thursday instead of Saturday and are glad that we did. We traveled to Bangor, Maine the first day, connection with the rain just before we crossed the US Border. Arriving at the Bangor Wal*mart after dark but too early to hit the sheets, we wandered through the store picking up a few staples we had left without. We returned to the RV spent some time reading then turned in a bit early. One o'clock in the...

Sep 18, 2011 - Pine Grove, PA

Pine Grove is about a half hour north of Harrisburg, PA. We stayed here two nights so on our "free" day, we drove over to the little town of Pine Grove to see what was there. We noticed there sure was a lot of remodeling going on. So many streets we drove on had sidewalks full of drywall, old carpet, furniture - that sort of thing - and people busy as little beavers. We didn't put two and two together until we were listening to the local TV news out of Harrisburg that evening. They were talking about the predicament residents have found...

Apr 18, 2011 - Pine Grove, PA

High Y'all ! I learned something today ! We were pulling out of the campground , had to do some wiggling around a tight turn and all of a sudden the trailer breaks locked on. Man, was that old Ford V10 ever singing a song dragging locked breaks out where I could stop. What to do (Dumbo here forgot that he has Good Sam Platinum Road Service Protection) I looked on the service advertisers on the Campground brochure. There at the top of the HUGE HUGE, hill leading out of the campground was located an RV Service Center for all types of RV's....

Sep 27, 2009 - Football, Baseball, AND Golf

Today is Sunday. I know that because I spent a couple of hours with a cuppa tea reading the Sunday paper this morning. And, John is currently watching two games of football simultaneously with a game of golf and two baseball games. To say that he is a happy camper today is an understatement. While none of those activities are my favorite, I am happy to relinquish the remote control and find other things to keep me occupied such as housekeeping, finishing another puzzle, playing with the kids - Rocky and I invented a new game using a large...

Pretty Damn Nice!

Sep 23, 2009 - Pine Grove, PA

We are finally in a camp with good Internet reception so I can update our travels. -- Last Monday, with a dusting of snow on the mountains, we figured it was time to head south - fast. We traveled across the top width of New Hampshire and crossed the Connecticut River into Vermont. We followed the river south on Interstate 91 which is unusual for us since we like to take side roads, but we have seen most of Vermont already when we were here in June and July. But what a difference there is now in the trees. -- As we climbed up and over...

Apr 26, 2008 - Pine Grove/Twin Grove KOA, Pine Grove, PA

A note to let everyone know that we have safely arrived at the Pine Grove KOA RV Park in Pine Grove, PA. We left about 8:30am wanting to arrive nice and early. We decided to enjoy a nice Brunch at Johnny Appleseed Rest. in Newmarket VA. We've been here twice before and really would recommend their Breakfasts. One winter we stayed in their Motel and really enjoyed that also. We encountered some heavy traffic but had a very nice trip until one mile from the turnoff for the RV Park........BANG !!!........ You guessed it! another Blowout. We...

Nov 6, 2006 - Pine Grove, PA

Nov. 6, 2006 We make the haul from Gilbertsville, NY. to Pine Grove, PA. Before leaving G'ville I visited with a retired professional truck driver. He gave me lots of tips on driving a rig of this size. The information was so very helpful. Getting used to the power of the Ford Powerstroke diesel engine was lots of fun. This was our first visit to an RV park and complete a hookup with our new rig. A pull-through site was a big help here. Once on site, hooked up, and opened up, I discovered our kitchen faucet was in pieces in the sink. With...

Apr 20, 2005 - Delaware Water Gap

Millions of years ago this area was a level plain; erosion and gradual uplift of the land formed the ridges and valleys seen today. Here the river twists in a tight ā€œsā€ curve through Kittatinny Ridge. In the 19th century this area was a resort area where large hotels sprang up and catered to a clientele of business people and their families. Today most of the large hotels are gone. The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area was established by Congress in 1965 to preserve the relatively unspoiled natural and historic area.
