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...

Home Sweet RV - 2014

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...

Going North

Oct 12, 2010 - Woodland, PA - Woodland Campground

Today's drive was 196 miles of which almost all of it was through the gorgeous Alleghenies in full color. It was uphill, downhill, around and around, all the time with beautiful scenery all around. With the exception of about 15 miles the roads were great and provided for a very enjoyable ride. Sorry if we included too many pictures of the trip. We are staying at Woodland Campground just outside Woodland, PA. It is a full hookup pull-through of which we will only be using the electricity since we are leaving tomorrow and didn't even unhook...

Oct 11, 2009 - Woodland, PA - Just Driving

It was cold, cold, cold last night. We ran our propane because we didn't think the heat pump would keep up. We were on a 30 amp circuit but, amazingly, we didn't trip it once. We are definitely wimps; our idea of roughing it is 50 amp, full hook-ups, and a strong satellite signal for internet and TV. I like to do laundry when I want and I usually can't remember that I shouldn't run the toaster AND the microwave when we're on a 30 amp circuit. Luckily, Joe is pretty patient when I overload things. We pulled out early this morning; there was...

Jun 15, 2009 - Woodland Campground (June 11-14)

Thursday June 11, 2009 We arrived at the Woodland Campground at 2:30pm. The weather is warm and sunny at the moment. We checked in and set up camp. By the time we were done setting up camp it was ready to eat supper. We had Sloppy Joes and Spring salad. It has started to rain now, but not a hard rain. Just a light on and off rain. After supper we got out our fishing poles and went fishing in the rain. The kids caught Sun Fish every cast and had a blast. We didn't take any pictures today because of the rain. Didn't want to ruin our camera as...
