Jun 29, 2013 - Civil War Museum

We had a mostly non productive day at Kaiser clinic. We found out that all the Kaiser clinics were not connected by computer. We had to register through the Virginia Kaiser and the lab had to call Georgia to get orders to draw Larry's blood. The lab person was very good and keep on the phone until she got what she needed. Larry could not get his RX filled unless we would wait until Monday and we did not want to do that. So he has enough meds to get him home and he can get with the doctor then. We found a civil war museum on the way to...

Spring Trips 2013

Nov 13, 2012 - OTRA - VA - Louisa

Boy, these one-night stops can get a little tiring after a bit but we're due to meet up with my brother and wife, Chip and Bonnie, in Selma, North Carolina the 14th or 15th so we must be like the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland and hurry! We're staying at the Small Country Campground again since it's the only one still open at this time of year along our drive south. As we get further south, we won't have this problem. It's interesting to see the price of diesel get lower and lower (but not yet low enough!) the further south we drive....

Mar 24, 2011 - Book Day

We had some serious storms around us last night keeping us in the camper all evening, luckily nothing on top of us. Had a really bad hail and wind storm probably 5 miles North of us and later in the evening a bunch of thunderstorms just South of us. Our evening wound up being heavy wind for a couple of hours and a bunch of rain....we were lucky that was it. Got up this morning to wind and a few showers and cold temperatures....and decided to make it a book day, even got in a movie in the afternoon, old one of TBS, no theaters anywhere...

Mar 23, 2011 - James Madison Day

We are within 25 or 30 miles of three homes of Presidents, all of who wrote or signed the Declaration, and Constitution. We visited with James and Dolly Madison today....they had us over for lunch. Couldn't figure out why but they never changed their poses the whole time we ate. Large home is on a huge piece of property and really has some old old trees on it. James died and before Dolly realized it, she had to sell the property to maintain her own life. The Duponts bought it in 1902 and put in a steeplechase track that is still in use...

Mar 22, 2011 - Small Country Campground

Got in a little late yesterday, but we took our time, had a sit down lunch, 2 pit-stops, and got gas. Remember we're old folk. Campground is a little off the beaten path, but pretty nice. Took some time setting up, ate some supper and had a hard thunder storm, all before 8. So an eventful day. Walked the campground today to see what we had and it is really a very nice campground. lots of smaller sites with water and electrical, with a bunch of them on the lake. All full service sites sit on top of a hill overlooking the lake, ours all...

Nov 24, 2010 - OTRA – VA - Louisa

11/24/10 Not feeling well again this morning. In fact, I do think I only got about 3 hours’ sleep last night ‘cause I spent the rest of the time sitting on the john with a trash can between my knees! I don’t know what it was but I don’t like it at all!! So, needless to say, I was moving a little slowly this morning but we still managed to get off by 10:30 a.m. on our way to Small Country Campground in Louisa, Virginia. We have stayed here before and knew what it was like. WELCOME TO MARYLAND: 10:36 a.m. Crossed the Potomac and…. WELCOME...

Jun 3, 2010 - Shenandoah National Park/Skyline Drive

We have now moved to the Small Country Campground in Louisa, VA. Yesterday we did a day trip on the Skyline Drive. We drove about 50 miles, most of it on Interstate 64 to get to the southern entrance to Skyline Drive and to Shenandoah National Park. Looking for a hike, we drove north on the Drive to the parking lot for Riprap Trail. We decided to hike up the trail, after a short walk on the Appalachian Trail, to a spot called, "Calvary Rocks." The trail was a good workout, for the most part, it was ordinary until we reach the rocks. The...

Apr 29, 2010 - Monticello, Montpelier and more

We have spent the last couple of days enjoying the beautiful countryside of Central Virginia, Louisa is about a half hour from Fredricksburg, also a half hour from Charlottesville. It seems as though each time we head out (or back to the RV park) the GPS sends us a new way...so we have gotten to see alot of the backroads...which is GREAT! The area is gorgeous...in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are enjoying seeing mountains in the distance again! Yesterday we decided to go to Charlottesville to Thomas Jefferson's home -...

Aug 20, 2009 - Lousia, VA

We are staying in Lousia, but today we drove over to near Richmond to visit Pamplin Park and the National Civil War Soldier Museum. They would not let you take pictures in the museum only outside and in the houses. Pamplin was the founder of Georgia Pacific and purchased this property after he found out the it was owned by some of his ancestors. The house was occupied by Confederate soldiers for a time.

Jul 15, 2009 - OTRA - VA - Louisa

7/15/09 Today was a short trip (74 miles) north to the Small Country Campground in Louisa, Virginia. Regardless of what the name implies, this is NOT a small country campground! It’s quite large and quite nice. Actually, it’s named for the Small family that owns the campground. Driving up US-15, we saw some beautiful horse and cattle farms along the way and passed a lot of logging trucks, a surprise to me 'cause I thought most logging activity was further south yet these trucks were headed south. We did pass 2 huge lumber mills so I guess...

Nov 5, 2007 - Travel Day...

Today was a travel day. We woke up this morning in Pennsylvania, but as the day progressed we were in Maryland, West Virginia & finally arrived in Virginia. Since we have the same destination, we traveled together with Herb & Darlene. We stopped in West Virginia for some needed supplies at the local Wal-Mart & had lunch at a Chinese buffet right in the same lot. Not too bad. It was a long haul but a beautiful drive. Rolling hills, lots of color, many farms & horse ranches. The weather has been running in the high 50's during the day so a...
