Road Trip to Arizona

Mill Creek Corps of Engineer Campground, Berlin Lake, OH
It was time to get to Arizona and help manage my Dad's house. We usually don't like to "rush" anywhere, but it was important we get back to the west soon. We planned a 12-day trip to get from Massachusetts to Arizona. Not really "rushing", but a pretty quick trip for us. Normally, we like to keep our travel days under 5 hours. We also wouldn't be driving everyday. Since we couldn't get our last mi...

Family in Massachusetts

Near Fourth Cliff Recreation Area, MA
When leaving the Gifford Pinchot State Park in Pennsylvania, we had a small problem bringing in a slide-out. We discovered we had a stow-away family tucked up under the awning. Unfortunately, I'm now a home wrecker and baby murderer. One of the eggs broke while I was removing the nest. A couple months ago, we wrote that since Cape Cod cancelled our reservations, we didn't know where we were going....

Exploring Pennsylvania

Gettysburg Battlefield, PA
Before leaving Ohiopyle State Park in Pennsylvania, we made one last day trip out exploring. This turned out to be a fun filled day!While enjoying a beautiful drive on the Pennsylvania country roads, we stumbled upon the "Kings Bridge",  a 127-foot truss covered bridge. Originally built in 1806, it's been renovated about every 100 years since. Very nice and sturdy construction. Later in ...

George Washington's Surrender

Fort Necessity, PA
When May 22nd arrived, the Pennsylvania State Parks opened to camping. We had a 14-day reservation at Ohiopyle State Park, located in the southwestern part of the state. After leaving the little campground in Virginia, we were surprised the GPS took us through West Virginia into Maryland, and finally into Pennsylvania. We didn't mind the four-state drive in a day, we were just surprised. We didn't...

Connie's Corner

Motorcycle Dog
Cooking with Connie  I'll start off my post by wishing our eldest granddaughter Kaylee, a very Happy 14th Birthday -  We love you!  This was as far as I got the day I started this post two days ago, but it's an important message and I wanted to share it instead of starting over. Last month I asked if you had any good recipes to share with me. Roxanne LeBlanc shared her Cajun Meatloa...
