Trip Log

May 9, 2007

This morning we walked to the east of the campground to the river.  We saw javelinas (peccaries, pig-like), jackrabbits, roadrunners, odd insects and birds.  We left camp at about 11 and drove to Alpine, about 130 miles.  We arrived at the Lost Alaskan RV park at about 2.  We had some rain while

Beautiful but remote.  The entrances to the park are 70 to 80 miles from any town of any size.  The visitor's center is 20 miles from either gate and the the campground is another 20 miles from the v.

We left San Angelo this morning and hope we have left the threat of tornados behind.   We went through Eldorado, Fort Stockton and Marathon on our way.  It was mostly desert but much of it was in bloom.   We saw a windmill farm, a giant roadrunner statue and lots of Texas.  Big Bend was was a sur

We left Denton this morning and travelled through Abilene and arrived at the KOA in San Angelo at 3:30.  The weather was good but we had a stong headwind all the way.  We are again dealing with Tornado and Thunderstorm warnings but it is all north and west of us.  We had a formation of about 12 h

This morning we went to my dad's for breakfast.  Norma cooked us a very good Texas breakfast and we visited and showed pictures.  Alesa was treated to a free makeover from one of their neighbors, we walked around his lake a few times and then took them and their neighbors to the trailer.  We then

We left at about 10 this morning and arrived in Denton at about 3:30.  The trip went well and we took Texas back roads for the last 70 miles.  They were fine until we hit mall construction in Denton.  We set up at the Post Oak RV park, ate dinner and then went to see my dad.  We are making an ear

We like the RV park we are in so much that we decided to visit and stay another night.  I (Jerry) had spoken with my Dad on Tuesday and said we would visit him in Denton in 2 or 3 days.  We have already made reservations at Post Oak Place in Denton for Friday and Saturday night.  Today we slept l

We traveled on 90 - 271 - 71 and stopped north of Cincinnati at dinnertime to rest and miss the rush hour traffic.  One of the tires on the RV looked low and I checked the pressure and it was  about half of what it should have been.  We went to the next exit and filled the tire but saw the head o

We arrived in Erie on Sunday afternoon and registered at Sara's campground at the entrance to the peninsula below Waldermeer.  We have a site right on the lake.  We step out of our trailer onto the beach.  It is great, a little cool and windy but it is a wonderful site.  We spent two nights and w

We left Exton yesterday morning on our way to Corry, Pa.   We are settled into Harecreek campground.  It's been raining for a week so we are parked on the road with long connections to the services to avoid the quagmires the sites have become.  Ronda and Denny are camped next to us.  They are her
