Today was moving day – it was supposed to be yesterday – but we extended our stay to spend a little extra time with Beth. Tuesday found us exploring Manassas – the Battles of Bull Run. We listened to a Park Ranger talk about Bull Run I, did a walking tour of the site of […]Read more "October 8-10 – Manassas (I & II), Family Time, Exploring Mount Jackson, and North Carolina"
This has been a phenomenal day. I suppose you could sum it up by saying we got really high (summitted Stony Man Mountain), and then hit rock bottom (Luray Caverns – at about 180 feet underground). Beth joined us around 0815 hrs. this morning, and we set off for Shenandoah Valley National Park. There are […]Read more "October 7 – Shenandoah Valley National Park and Appalachian Trail, Luray Caverns"

Most important is to get the coffee on for Bill! I start packing up each room – a successful move requires […]Read more "October 6 – PA-MD-WV-VA"

We did have a lovely drive, reminiscent of the old “Sunday Afternoon Drive”. Our travels took us through Amish Country, we shared the roads […]Read more "October 5 – Delaware and Keeping It Real"

Thursday was designated Gettysburg Day 2. Great plans – but we forgot to designate one of us to be responsible […]Read more "October 2-4 – Maryland, Gettysburg Day 2, and Pennsylvania"
Yesterday we traveled from PA to MD, a delightfully uneventful trip enjoying the sights and I did some serious knitting. We landed at Little Bennett County Campground in Clarksburg, MD. This is our second visit – this particular park is great! Many upgrades since we were here two years ago. They have added cabins and […]Read more "September 30 – October 1 – Pennsylvania to Maryland, Seeing Walt, and Gettysburg"
The wheels on the truck were turning by 0920 hrs. this morning – a great travel day – sunshine on our back, and much less traffic. In a general southwest direction, we made our way out of Massachusetts and on the way to see and explore new places. We have figured out that rest areas […]Read more "September 29 – Leaving The Mass(es)"
