Aug 4, 2013 - The Poconos

Since we came into Saugertie's on the NY Thruway (toll road) we figured we would leave on it. Our intention was to take the thruway to I84 west. Turns out they do not interchange thruways and interstate highways, not even a sign to exit. Needless to say we missed the I84 exit did not realize until we were well down the road. We stopped at a service area to check the best solution and decided on continuing to I287 to New Jersey and I80 to Pennsylvania. New Jersey wasn't in the plan. What's another state? That route took us within 25 miles of...

Jun 30, 2013 - Relaxing in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

We arrived in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania on June 26. Bill had planned this destination as a quiet place for us to stay through the 4th of July. It's a family destination park with a nice swimming pool. We're having to adjust to fireworks being allowed. You can buy them in stores and people have been enjoying them long before the 4th. Some are very loud and they've continued to shoot them as late as 11 pm. Quiet hours begin in this park at midnight. There are a number of small towns in the area that we've visited already. The traffic was...

Aug 14, 2012 - On to Stroudsburg, PA in the Pocono Mountains.

We had been in this area in 2007 on our first extended RV trip and had visited Bushkill Falls. We thought we'd like to go back. This park is truly well laid out and very beautiful. Notice not only the falls, but the wooden walkways throughout. I will mention this. The roads in Pennsylvania are horrible. It was like this 5 years ago and still is. They just don't get any better.

Aug 2, 2012 - Paradise, Bethlehem, and Nazareth ***Pocono Vacation Park, Stroudsburg, PA

One might say we have been in holy land today! We were in Paradise this morning on the bus tour, and came near/through Bethlehem and Nazareth this afternoon on the way to Stroudsburg, PA. This morning we rode a small bus/people mover for two hours, touring the Amish farm area. Our driver's (Chris) parents were raised Amish but after studying the Bible left the Amish and became Mennonite. They felt that the Amish depends on "works" or doing things to get to heaven. They and other Mennonites believe that it is the blood of Jesus as a free...

May 31, 2012 - What's been goin' on

We are wrapping up four of our "off" days at the Delaware Water Gap after working five in a row at the campground. Been here in Stroudsburg since Monday visiting with Connie and John. We checked out the local sights including some nice restaurants. Weather was good except for one afternoon when we had a pretty wild rainstorm. We visited the town of Jim Thorpe and toured the National Park at the Water Gap. We also found a great laundromat in East Stroudsburg and got caught up on our duds (pretty exciting, huh?) Since this is our last...

Aug 26, 2011 - Delaware Water Gap

When I wrote this morning about Hurricane Irene, I called her Ilene. And, we are not going to College Station...that is in Texas. We are going near State College, PA. I didn't know where I was going. I got us lost heading home this afternoon. Luckily, the GPS (the British Babe) got us back to the campground. In the meantime, we had lunch at a nice salad bar restaurant. The salad bar was small but good. There was a soup, a hot ziti pasta dish, and cold cuts and cheese for sandwiches. We were both hungry for some veggies. After lunch, we used...

Aug 9, 2010 - GAP KOA

Pulled into the Deleware Water Gap KOA yesterday. It seems to be a nice campground but, when I made the reservations, there was a shuttle to the Gap listed in the amenities. When I got here, I found out that there is no shuttle and the campground is under a new owner. So...I'm stuck here in the park. I'm only here for 4 nights and then move a few miles to another campground. The weather has turned hot and sticky again so it's hard to sit outside during the middle of the day. Thank heavens that this campground has WIFI at the campsites...it...

Mary's RV Wanderings

Jun 14, 2010 - Poconos

We've spent the last 5 days in the Poconos in eastern Pennsylvania. It's been a popular vacation spent for a lot of years. Celebrities from the 50s and 60s such as Lucille Ball and Jackie Gleason used to vacation here. We are about 90 miles from NYC. We took a trolley tour throught the Delaware Water Gap. The Delaware River is the longest free-flowing river in the east. It forms the border of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We took a day and stopped at farmer's markets and walked across a bridge from Pennsylvania into New Jersey. We visted...

May 31, 2010 - Memorial Day 2010, Pennsylvania

While we were in Lebanon, we visited the Civil War battlefield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The beautiful grassy fields have monuments and statues commemorating the famous 3-day battle of July, 1863. There are several overlooks, as it was very important to the outcome in hand-to-hand combat to have a good view of oncoming soldiers. Scattered throughout the official tour are plaques and cannons that give details as to what occurred. We went to East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania from there to visit Mike and Yvonne and our nephews, Troy and Ryan....

Apr 7, 2010 - Still in Delaware Water Gap

Today is 90 degrees plus - totally unbelievable and I think just about a record for this time of year. Yesterday we hiked the two mountains on each side of the Gap - Mt. Tammany on the NJ side and Mt. Mansi on the PA side. Of course NJ mountains are only 1500 feet tall - but still a good workout. Today we decided we'd tested our muscles and joints enough for awhile and enjoyed a very interesting morning at the Lakota Wolf Preserve in NJ. About 20 years ago two guys decided to try to give wolves, raised as pets and abandoned, a better home....

Apr 5, 2010 - Delaware Water Gap

We've spent two days hiking and biking in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area - 70,000 acres with 40 miles of the Delaware River running between PA and northwestern NJ. Who ever knew that NJ could be so remote and so beautiful? However, the story behind the NRA development makes one think twice. After the devastating 1955 flood which killed a number of people, proposals for the Tocks Island Dam to control the river were presented to Congress in 1965. Proposers also envisioned an area for recreation and hydroelectric power for...

Oct 6, 2009 - The Pocono Mountains of PA

We left the Catskills Mountains mid-morning and headed to Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains. After traveling down a windy, narrow road, we located the campground which was actually pretty nice with lots of colorful trees and fallen leaves on the ground. On our way here, we pass near Moscow and The Promised Land and even saw a sign for Bethlehem. Quite a journey. In the next few days we would also see signs for Nazareth. After setting up at the campground and walking Duke, we headed out for a late lunch/early dinner at my favorite pizza place...
