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 ...

Visitors can explore the wheelhouse, sleeping quarters, and her cargo hold which now...

Thanksgiving with Friends

Cocoa Beach, Florida
 Time is passing by fairly quick, although we haven't been doing much other than relaxing. Isn't that what "not traveling" and enjoying a winter break is supposed to be about? Our traveling friends, Bob and Joyce Childre, have a "sticks and bricks" home about 90 minutes from here. We met these friends in the Arizona desert about 12 years ago. Since then, we meet up about every 2- 3 years and ...

They Cancelled Our Reservation

My New Drone Flying
Over the past couple of months, we've had several campground reservations cancelled on us. We expected this due to campground closures because of the COVID-19 isolation policies. However, recently many states have started to reduce restrictions and many campgrounds (public, government, and military) have started to open again. We still had a reservation at the US Coast Guard station campground at ...
