Trip Log

Last Thursday, Alesa & Laura went shopping in Calais while I fished and fixed a fuel tank leak in Steve's truck. We also bought a trailer hitch so I could pull the boat for our trip to Crumple Island.

We arrived in Maine on July 10th and spent a night in Portland.  We are always going by and never get a chance to stop and tour the city.  We did the tour and it was worth the stop as it is a charming, albeit large, seaport.  We did our normal stop at LL Bean as well.  We arrived at Grand Lake St

We are at Ronda & Denny's camp on Sacandaga so Alesa can visit (commiserate) with her cousin. We were able to back into a spot Denny built up with crushed stone in the woods on the road behind their camp.

We left Erie on the morning of the 8th for our trip to the Adirondacks. Jeff left Saturday from Ryan Brown's graduation open house and Mike will be leaving Monday. Bailey sobbed all during the elongated good-byes and didn't want to leave Erie.

We are in Erie for the 4th. We are set up at Lampe campground, a new campground next to the south pier. It still has some kinks to work out but it is very nice for some old Erieites. We have fantastic views and are centrally located to relatives and friends.

We are at North Fork Resort in Front Royal for a couple of days.  Tomorrow we should get back home to Exton for a week before leaving for Erie.  Today we took a ride in the clouds on Skyline Drive and then paid a visit to Luray Caverns.  Years ago we went to Luray Caverns but once in the parking

We are in the Shenandoah Hills campground in Madison, Va.  This morning we went to Charlottesville and visited Monticello.  We didn't do the house tour because we have done it before but did spend some time at the visitors' center museum.  This afternoon we visited Mary Hulvey, Alesa's cousin, in

Last night we stayed in Volunteer Park just north of Knoxville off I-75.  There were severe thunderstorm warnings most of the night but we only had a little rain.  This  morning we slept in and drove about 80 miles to Baileyton.  There is a golf course across the street but we did not get a chanc
