Jun 28, 2016 - West Chester, PA.

Monday 27th. We had a tough morning. We got up and got ready, so we could get Sugar into the nearest Veterinarian Hospital, which opened at 9:30. Sugar at 17 (her birthday was the 25th), almost blind and could not hear, we decided to have her put down. Although when we left home, we felt she may not make it back with us, it still was not an easy thing to do. She was a great friend and traveler. Tuesday 28th. We got Ava packed and took her to the airport. We got there about 11:30 for a flight that departs at 3:50. Not knowing the airport...

Jun 24, 2016 - West Chester, PA.

We made it to our campground, by way of Delaware and some very narrow winding roads. The down side is we are in the back country about an hour out of Philadelphia. It is really pretty around here, but phone and Wifi are hard to come by. At this point we are having a good moment, but do not know how long it will last. Probably because it is Sunday night when we are doing this and a lot of people left. We are at this site for 2 nights and then moving to another with full hookups for 4 more nights. We will update as we can.

Aug 1, 2015 - West Chester PA

The trek from Clinton to near Coatesville PA was pretty painless up until the last 30 or so minutes where the lanes narrowed, the shoulder disappeared and the trees started to overgrow the road. We came in via the campground's recommended routing which we can only hope was better than the GPS directions. Their routing was harrowing enough and I'm really looking forward to our departure on Saturday morning. Not. We got all set up by about 3:30 and after an adequate decompression period, we set out to work on improving the way the front TV is...

Apr 26, 2012 - Around West Chester PA

Everybody slept late after yesterday's adventures. The pups didn't make a sound until after 9 o'clock. We drove into West Chester and had lunch at the Ram's Head Tavern. The filet mignon cheese steak sandwich was wonderful. One of the windshield wipers on Arvy had lost the cap on the end that kept the metal inside the wiper....not too good when the wiper looks like it is coming apart while in the midst of a downpour. We found Stoltzfus RV and Marine (related to the family who owns the restaurant in Lancaster). A tiny cable tie wrapped...

Spring Trip 2012

Apr 25, 2012 - Philadelphia

Everyone got up really early this morning. We dropped the pups off at Toby's doggie day care about 8 o'clock. Then we drove to the SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transit Authority) station to catch the 8:54 train into Philadelphia. The ride train stopped at lots of little stations, some only a couple of miles apart. The ride into the Market East Station took about an hour. We walked several blocks to the Independence National Historic Park. Our first task was to get two free timed tickets to take the tour of Indendence Hall. We got...

Apr 24, 2012 - Philadelphia Zoo

Today we drove toward Philadelphia and visited the zoo. Driving distance was only about 45 miles, but like all big cities the last 5 miles took the longest. The Philadelphia Zoo was chartered March 21, 1859, but opening was delayed by the Civil War to July 1, 1874. When the zoo opened it had 1,000 animals and the admission fee was 25 cents. Today the 42 acre zoo has 1,300 animals and cost adults $18.00 plus $12.00 to park. The zoo is well known for its successful breeding programs. The first big cat birth was a litter of lions in 1875....

Spring Trip 2012

Apr 23, 2012 - Valley Forge/King of Prussia

The rain kept up all night, but by morning had eased up to a drizzle. We decided to explore the area by car and avoid walking around. First we drove into West Chester and found a doggie day care for Tammy and Bitsy on Wednesday when we plan to take the train into Philadelphia for the day. We had found Toby's on the internet and went by to meet the owner. We were pleased with him and his attitude. He has a large building with concrete floors. The space is divided into two areas by 4 foot wooden fencing. Usually the big dogs go in one space...

Apr 22, 2012 - On the road to West Chester

We had steady rain all night, left the campground in rain, and drove in the rain to the KOA campground near West Chester. There we unhooked the jeep and hooked up Arvy in the rain. We are now sitting in Arvy watching a movie....in the rain. The drive over was though beautiful countryside. We have been amazed at how many really old buildings still exist in good shape and are being used as homes and businesses. All the dogwoods, redbuds, tulips, and azaleas are in full bloom. That's all the news from here for now. The rain is heavier and...

Spring Trip 2012

Jan 1, 2011 - 2011: Lighten the Load and Hit the Road

We begin the New Year with a sense of excitement and exhilaration, if not in trepidation. As we prepare for the year ahead we know that there is much to do before we launch for good in August. We have several smaller trips planned for research and planning purposes. In March we will attend the FMCA Rally in Perry Georgia with a warm up rally with other Newmar owners. Our goal there will be to put the finishing touches on some of out travel support systems. In the meantime I am becoming an e-Bay regular, as well as a regular on FreeCycle, in...

Time 4T

Oct 22, 2010 - OMG, We did it!

Just when we thought we were being sensible, we go and buy an RV! Not like we weren't planning to do it, we just compressed the time line a bit. We LOVE it! As a result, life has taken on a whole new context called "Will it fit in the RV?" We have begun to create our "Road Adventure!" Next week we are taking a little bitty trip to check out the fall foliage AND our new RV. We had a practice run in a rental RV last week and we had a blast, so I'm sure our next trip will be fabulous. Yoshi approached the RV with some trepidation, but was...

Jun 30, 2009 - Sleeping with Jennifer Cruz

Ha ! thought that headline would catch your attention AND its true. We met in the First Class Lounge at JFK -- It was very quiet there at about 11pm Monday night -- I had amtraked it up from West Chester everything went smoothly but your not even interested your speed reading to get to the SEX .... There that stopped your eyeballs in their tracks. Pen and her even more beautiful companion (Looked very Spanish as well ) were looking for places to plug their macbooks and phones into and I graciously pointed them out -- So nods of approval...
