Sep 16, 2017 - Happy Anniversary US Air Force

We attended the Joint Base Andrews Air Show on Saturday with Kyle, Annie, Finn, and Ozzie. Since you couldn't drive to the base, you had to park at FedEx Field and take a bus to the air show. The organization of the parking and buses was not as good as it could be. You had to walk a long way from the parking lot to the bus loading area. Not good for the kids. It was a warm afternoon on the asphalt lot waiting for the buses and because of the security rules you weren't supposed to bring bottles of water, only empty bottles to be filled at...

Aug 13, 2016 - Millersville, Maryland

Aug 13, 2016 Headed back up the very lower portion of Virginia then up the West side of Maryland and across the Bay bridge from Cambridge to Annapolis and up to Millerville. Around 2:30 we left to go to Ann Arms' house for dinner. The temps were in the high 80's low 90's so we stayed in, drank wine, and bar-b-cue. I was able to get the car washed finally. Talked too long and had to drive home in the dark, luckily we have a good GPS.

Jun 29, 2016 - Millersville, MD

We are up early. John fishes for a short time. We say our goodbyes to Justin and we are on our way. We take Route 50 to Winchester, Virginia. At Winchester, we opt for the interstate. I66 is a great choice. It takes us directly to the Washington DC Beltway. As we near the beltway, traffic picks up. Seven miles from the beltway, we are in stop/start traffic. Once on the beltway it is not as bad. It is still stressful. The beltway seems to go on forever! Once off the beltway, it is a short distance to Rips Country Inn. This is one of our...

Apr 23, 2016 - Finn & Oskar

We left Harpers Ferry on Friday for a stop off in the Baltimore area to see Kyle, Annie, Finn and Oskar. We stopped at the house in Hamden on Friday and they came to Winnie for dinner Saturday afternoon. What a difference 2 months makes. Finn was just talking when we left, but now he talks a blue streak. Oskar was a month old and tiny and now he's plump and looks like his Dad at that age. We certainly miss them while we travel. We'll be heading home in the morning and should get there by early afternoon. I always have mixed emotions at the...

2016 Winter Trek

Sep 22, 2015 - Our Continuing Comedy of Errors

After being assured that our propane tank was not leaking, and hearing nothing more from the alarm, we headed down to Millersville, MD to stay for a few days and visit Washington, DC. The trip down was uneventful except for the traffic, thank goodness. As we went about our usual duties setting up camp – Buzz does the outside and I do the inside – the rear jack hammered away as it has not done for a while, but we both knew the problem. The air bags had not dumped, leaving the motorhome too high and overextending the jacks. Only one fouled...

Mar 22, 2015 - Shake Down Trip

This was our first trip in ETCTA #2 this camping season. Our goal was to put our RV through the paces and use everything (stove, shower, tv's..etc) this was we could make plans to fix or get fixed anything that was wrong. When we arrived at the Washington DC/Capitol KOA we were greeted by a very friendly, helpful and enthusiastic employee ( I should have remembered his name). I checked in and were were assigned spot #4 (on the end with a nice patio area). I could not make an informed observation about the condition of the grounds because...

Feb 10, 2014 - Time with Finn

On the next to last leg back home, we stopped in Baltimore to visit our new grandson, Finn, and his brother and sister, Leo and Ramona. Kyle and Annie were there too. Finn is just 2 months old, and it’s amazing to see how he has changed since we last saw him in early January. Sue couldn’t wait to hold him in her arms. Since Kyle’s birthday was at the beginning of the month, we brought dinner from Dixie Bones and pigged out on pulled pork, beef brisket, and pulled chicken with collards, slaw and potato salad. While we were visiting, there...

Nov 24, 2013 - Millersville, MD

We had a plan. If we are in Fredericksburg on Monday night, we will make the long drive home on Tuesday. We do not want to drive the day before Thanksgiving. It got cold last night. Our little heater worked all night. It was still “nippy” in the RV this morning. The weather seems to be closing in on us. We get on I81 north. I work the GPS. After an hour, I give John our choices. We can be east of Washington DC by 2:30. We decide to make this our long driving day. I think it is the right choice, but it is a hard driving day. As we get tired,...

Oct 4, 2013 - Day 27

Our timing leaves a lot to be desired. Not only did the government shutdown scuttle our plans to visit Gettysburg and Washington, D.C., but we arrived in Annapolis on Boat Show weekend. For us land lubbers, that's a HUGE deal here. It means the already narrow streets of Annapolis are totally clogged with boat shoppers and lookie-loos, and so are the restaurants, shops, etc. I love poking around the downtown/harbor area but I didn't love the idea of dealing with trying to find a place to park the truck and elbow our way through the crowds,...

New England 2013

Oct 3, 2013 - Days 25-26

We found out as we were leaving the campground near Hershey that we were within spittin' distance of Three Mile Island (maybe that's why I felt woozy yesterday). We could see the stacks as soon as we drove out of the trees. We drove to Baltimore through not too awful traffic and landed at the Capitol KOA. It takes some doing to get here. My cousin David, whose company is just up the road from here and says he drives by here everyday, and he never knew it was here. We found a spot in the trees. If it weren't for the constant drone of...

New England 2013

Nov 22, 2011 - To Millersville, MD

On every vacation a little rain must fall. It is a rainy day. For variety, we drive The Trail (Route 14). The Trail is a scenic Virginia Byway that parallels Route 17. Scenic byway means it is not a straight road. It twists and turns. A little bit of this goes a long way. We leave the trail at the halfway point. We head north to Route 17. We want to be at Rips Country Inn for lunch. We relax in the afternoon. It looks like we will be home tomorrow. Campground: Capitol KOA

Nov 2, 2011 - Millersville, Maryland

We said “see you later” to our friends and checked out around 9:30 am. About a one hour drive around Washington on 495 to the Millersville KOA. Revisiting the past, we had stayed here in 1988. A short drive to Annapolis, the capital of Maryland. We passed through metal detectors, had to show ID and have my purse opened before we could enter the state house, that type of security was standard at most government buildings we visited. The State House was built from 1772-1779. The dome built from 1786-1797 is the largest wooden dome of its kind...
