Jun 11, 2018 - Woodland, Pennsylvania

Today was a travel day across western Pennsylvania. When we were planning this journey, it was a difficult decision to exclude Pennsylvania from touring. There is SO much to do in this state! We made the decision to save it for a state trip at some later date. While at a rest stop today, we learned about the elk restoration program and the thriving herd that exists today. There is a circuit drive that provides elk viewing destinations where the elk are being harvested. "Even though elk are native to Pennsylvania the ones we currently enjoy...

Apr 7, 2018 - Decision Time

The mobile repair technician arrived early Saturday morning to repair the hot water heater. It was a $20 part (diode) and $150 minimum charge to come to the campground. Having hot water, priceless. We're off to New Jersey. On our way to New Jersey, we stopped to get our propane tank filled. When the attendant hooked the hose to our propane tank, it appeared that the valve on the tank stuck open and created a back pressure that caused propane to begin to leak around the fill fitting on the hose. They couldn't pump any propane and we began...

What a great place, just off the interstate, pull thru that is level and satellite reception. We still have a tire leak, they told us about a place we could try as we leave in the AM. We stopped at Sapp Brothers, they were too busy to work on it but filled us with air to get us on our way.

2017 trip

Aug 7, 2017 - travel day 1

Finally on the road. I had forgotten that all the roads in Pennsylvania are up hill. No, seriously, they are all up hill. We are currently at 42,000 feet and on the lookout for 747s and 727s and it is pretty when the clouds are below you. Off to Elkhart tomorrow, a longer day but our goal is to always get in before happy hour. Yippee.

Aug 12, 2016 - Hanging loose again

Started the day with a 2 mile walk and back for a nice breakfast. We are out away from towns and my walk is down these country lanes, which will have a dense forest (see pictures) and then open up to these older homes with a huge yard, and every yard has been mowed. Even the really run down homes have the lawns mowed, it must be a law here or something. The RV park is surrounded by forest and is like an oasis in a sea of trees. Charlotte was working today and there is nothing to really see anywhere near, so today I took care of some trip...

To Maine and back

Aug 11, 2016 - Woodland PA

Today we are back on the move again. We will drive about two thirds of the length of the state of Pennsylvania on I-80. For about the last month and a half, since we hit the far east portion of Texas, we have pretty much been driving in forested country. The main thing you see is lush forest and lush green grasses around the freeway. Except for the big cities, which look like big cities. Well today we started with the forest lining the road, but about half way through PA we started seeing fields growing corn, hay and other things. Then it...

To Maine and back

Aug 31, 2015 - in the boonies

Once we got out of the NYC area the traffic lessened greatly. This southern route toward I-80 avoids the toll charge on the NY Turnpike, partially alleviating the outrageous fees we paid to camp in NY. The Pennsylvania countryside was mostly rolling hills with agricultural activities in the flatter parts. The campground is a mile off the interstate, far enough away so we don't hear road noise, but easy to get back to. It has just what we need and nothing more. It stay open til mid December for hunters and snow birds on their way to...

Aug 22, 2014 - Pennsylvania Correction

After an overnight stop in Seville, Ohio on Wed. we arrived in Woodland, PA yesterday; one of the worst travel days we've had. It rained and the Interstate was down to one lane in a lot of places due to construction. Glad to arrive without incident, but the RV Park was like a running river in the gravel roads, everyone parked and we had an unusually long happy hour to celebrate!! This upper part of the state is beautiful, lots of trees, hills & rivers. It rained again today so we made a quick Walmart run, Shirley & Garth are hosting dinner...

Jul 12, 2014 - Pennsylvania Wilds

From Woodland Campground – Woodland, PA As happens along the way at the end of a stay in an area there are photos you would like to save and share but individual journal entries on them did not seem warranted. So you combine the photos and their stories in what I and other journal posters refer to as the old “wrap up” post. Here goes…………………… We have spent the last week in the “Pennsylvania Wilds”. Maybe you like us never realized this vast area of backwoods, backroads and backwaters existed. It is a two million acre landscape in Northern...

Jul 9, 2014 - Civilian Conservation Corps

From Woodland Campground – Woodland, PA “I pledge you, I pledge myself, to a new deal for the American people”. Words spoken by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932 that lead to his first New Deal program and the formation of the Civilian Conservation Corps or CCC. We have seen the work of the CCC at other state parks in the past but today visited two Pennsylvania parks where this group played big parts in their origins……S.B. Elliott and Parker Dam State Parks. The main draw for us was the fact both had original cabins and buildings...

Jul 7, 2014 - Revisiting Pennsylvania

From Woodland Campground – Woodland, PA Had an uneventful move today into Pennsylvania. Trip was just over 5 hours and 236 miles. When we changed our plans and added Ohio to our itinerary we needed a stop to fill a week between Ohio and Cooperstown and Woodland, PA was where the dart landed…..Ha Ha! We have just briefly looked at Trip Advisor for the area and know for sure we will visit the campus of Penn State as it is just 25 miles from the RV park. As per our usual we stopped at the Welcome Center when we crossed the state line into...

Home Sweet RV - 2014

Aug 1, 2011 - Day One heading north

First day on the road. . . but first, the pre-quel: Note to self: check everything well in advance of departure. Everything! Do it twice. Does parking your trailer in the front yard for three days, right next to the front door, make you a hillbilly? Getting old evidently means that both Ron and I can check the glove compartment, twice each, even emptying everything out and putting everything back, and not see the Tire Minder (monitors trailer tires against blow-outs, as well as over- or under-inflation) until we’re actually on the road and...
