Trip Log

May 3, 2007

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

We are back in our house but not home yet.  It will take some getting used to.  We are comfortable in bedroom #4 and Jeff, Danielle and family are doing everything to make us feel at home.  We have taken the trailer to a friend's house (Scott Taylor) and will be visiting on a regular basis to add

We arrived back home at about 10:30 this morning.  We left Charleston yesterday at about 10 and came home via route 81.  Traffic was not too bad but the trucks jammed all the rest areas and when it started to snow we spent a few hours sleeping at the Wal Mart supercenter in Martinsburg, WV.    We

Today we toured the Charleston Tea Plantation on Wadmalaw island.  This is the only tea grower in North America and they showed us how to grow and process tea.  It was a very interesting and informative tour.  The grounds were very nice.   We are back at the campground eating a late lunch.  I wil

Today we went to Patriots Point just across the river and toured the Yorktown (aircraft carrier),  the Laffey (destroyer), the Ingham (CG cutter), the Clamagore (submarine) and a mock up of a Navy Vietnam base camp.  The visit to the Laffey was especially poignant to me because my Uncle Eddie Bau

Today we toured downtown Charleston.  It is a very beautiful city with tons of things to do.  The neighborhoods are pretty with many shops, a riverwalk park and even an outdoor market.   Alesa found a "Lowcountry" cooking class to attend that afternoon and had a great time while I continued to ro

We arrived at Oak Plantation on Sunday afternoon and got settled.  We don't have a sewer connection so we are showering in the bathhouses.  It will be a good test of how long we can go before having to dump the holding tanks.  Today we were part of the great snow bird migration.  I-95 through Geo
