Sep 6, 2013 - Milton, WV May - Sep 2013

We got ourselves all settled back in and got to work helping get the park ready for the big Memorial Day weekend. There was plenty to do everywhere with mowing, weed-eating, picking up trash, tree-trimming, cleaning fire pits, cleaning the interior of the office/store and re-stocking the shelves. Time to order ice cream and soda pop to start the camping season. Doesn't our lake look nice? The trampolines are a HUGE hit with kids and parents alike. Two of our college kids, Tyler and Ashley, checked out a couple of the banana bikes to make...

Mar 31, 2013 - Milton, WV, Jan-March 2013

After all the excitement of the coach repairs we had to do during 2012, we are definitely looking forward to a much quieter 2013. And so, we have offered up a prayer to the RV Gods. The weather got MUCH colder and we worked hard to keep warm and keep our stuff from freezing. To demonstrate how cold it got here we've included one photo of the ice dam we had between the convenience center on the coach (where all water services are located) and the ground. We've also included several beautiful photos of the icicles that hang from the rocks...

Dec 28, 2012 - Milton, WV

Well, we had another issue just in time to close out 2012. We noticed that the carpeting in the back bathroom was wet and couldn't figure out where it was coming from. We used towels to dry it as well as we could, but the wood portions at the bottom of the cabinets were becoming saturated...prime conditions for mold to set in. We tried to get an appointment to have it fixed, to no avail. So we decided to try to troubleshoot it ourselves. We determined that there was a leak from the water pipes to/from our washer/ dryer. The washer is way...

November was a busy month for us getting lots of outside work done. The owners also left for 10 days, a combination mini-vacation and KOA Convention. So we were here by ourselves to manage the campground! There is a gal who works Monday thru Friday, 9am-2pm, but we did work 10 days straight. We got so much done, the owners were very pleased when they returned. Came home from grocery shopping one afternoon and found that our freezer had stopped working! We only lost a little bit of frozen food, but it took us over a week to get the...

We started getting the park ready for its annual Spooktacular the last weekend in October; we are sold out! The park is all decorated and really looks nice. Some of the guests went all out decorating their campsites. There was trick-or-treating, in costume, through the park, voting on best decorated campsite, a "Monster Mash" (Halloween music and games), lots to do. Even though the weather had turned quite cold and a little wet, everyone had a good time. Folks were still out by their campfires! And again, by Sunday afternoon, the park was...

Oct 24, 2012 - Huntington, WV Revisited

Today’s drive took us through eastern Kentucky. This is a really pretty part of the state with I64 winding up and down the mountains and valleys. Fall colors are past their peak, but with the sun out today the colors are much brighter than yesterday when it was mostly cloudy. After crossing over to West Virginia, we stopped for lunch in Huntington. Guy Fieri has visited West Virginia a number of times and there were several DDD establishments in the Huntington area to choose from. We selected the Central City Café. It was a good choice. Sue...

We made it! And as we entered the campground, everyone in the office came out onto the front porch to welcome us back. How lovely! Got all settled in again, cleaned the inside of the coach, and headed to the store to restock. It's turned cooler, so we also bought some long johns. I think we're ready! We have the park all decorated for Halloween, Fall and Thanksgiving; doesn't it look wonderful?

Phew! The summer just seemed to fly by! The campground was really busy so we picked up extra hours. We also commenced our rounds with our new doctors. After all was said and done and the dust settled, we have both been given thumbs up! Yep, gonna live another year...lol. We were sold out for Labor Day and the park was really jumping. It was interesting to watch as the park filled up and people got all their "stuff" set up. There were kids and campfires everywhere and everyone was having a good time. It always warms our hearts to see...

We so enjoyed our visit from Bob and Elsie. We spent most evenings together just visiting and enjoying each other. On our days off we took them to some of our favorite places and a couple of new ones. Over the 4th of July, our RV park had a local group come out and play on the weekends. They are called Greathouse and are brother Jerald and sister Debra Greathouse. They are really, really good. We've been to a local restaurant, Barnyard BBQ, where they play on Thursday nights. Good music and good food! We took off one day and had lunch at...

Jul 27, 2012 - Day 10: over the mountains

After a breakfast of pancakes, we closed up camp and headed out at 10:53am. We stopped at Danville, about an hour away, to go to Walmart for some food and supplies. Then we went to Chi-fil-A for lunch. It was my first time at one. I had chicken strips and it was good. Back on the road for a long drive thru the mountains. We went on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia and stopped at Groundhog Hill, it was 3030 ft. high. We saw a bear crossing sign but didn't see any bears. It started to rain and storm. Grandpa turned on the weather radio and...

Well, it was certainly a crazy, hectic month! There was alot going on in the park, especially since school is out for the summer. We have themed weekends and decorations, crafts and movie are all geared to the theme. It's wonderful to watch the families out around the lake, the kids jumping and having fun in the water. As we take our evening walk around the park, families are sitting around campfires roasting marshmallows and enjoying each other and the lovely weather. The only bad thing we've found is that these same people are up cooking...

We made it to our summer home at the Huntington KOA in Milton, WV, and have settled in nicely. We were in a nice back-in site next to the other workampers, Jake and Jen. They like to work on “projects” together, and they built this motorized cooler from an old electric wheelchair! Both Jake and Jen are quite tall people and it was sure funny to see them ride around on their cooler! About a month after we arrived, Jake and Jen just up and left for a job elsewhere! No notice, nothing. So our learning curve ramped up as we took on more duties....
