May 24, 2018 - Cambridge, Ohio

We both get a good night’s rest and are up early. We get an early start. Our destination is Pittsburgh. We arrive before noon. Every trip is different. We have a relaxing lunch and it is not yet 12:00. We travel on. In Ohio, there is a State Park at a perfect distance but it is not a favorite of ours. We drive the extra half hour to a campground we like. The day feels a little long but we are still settled in by 2:00. Tomorrow will be an easy run to Sunbury. The primary glitch of the day is the Go Pro. I somehow change it from video to...

Morgantown will be an easy run tomorrow..

Aug 18, 2015 - Day 42

Today we traveled across Ohio, taking our time and stopping early. It is a route we have done many times over the years. We are at the Rocky Fork Ranch resort. The resort is part of the Travel Resorts of America network, the same company that owns the resort in Gettysburg that we camp at. Rocky Fork is in the hills of eastern Ohio. It has a lot of amenities including horseback riding, but it is far from any town. You eat in or don't eat at all. It is a night to relax. We have much to do when we get home. Distance traveled: 205...

DANCE ACROSS AMERICA

Jun 21, 2013 - Reflections

I spent this morning at the Flight 93 National Memorial. Today was a busy day at the memorial as there were hundreds of motorcyclists from a rally, Thunder in the Valley, visiting. This is the third time that I’ve visited the site, but the first since the new memorial was dedicated on September 10, 2011. The first time Sue and I visited the Flight 93 Memorial was in 2009 on our Lincoln Highway trip and the visitor’s center was a small trailer on a hill overlooking the crash site. The memorial at that time included a 40-foot (to commemorate...

Jul 7, 2012 - It's hotter than He**!

We headed west from Hancock on I70 this morning with the goal of getting to near Dayton tonight. Didn’t quite make it. We’re stopped for the night at Spring Valley Campground in Cambridge, OH. Along the way, we passed through Pennsylvania and the top of West Virginia. As we left the campground this morning, we traveled a short distance on the Old National Pike, the first Postal Road financed and built by the Federal government to open a route to the western frontier. It ran from Baltimore to Vandalia, Ill. roughly along the current day...

Jun 1, 2012 - Spring Valley Campground, Cambridge, OH

We stopped in OH at the Spring Valley Campground in Cambridge OH. The RV park was located right at the juncture of I-70 and I-77. Cambridge is a real jewel. We had such a good time exploring the town, we found two great restaurants - The Forum and Theo's, great food. We found out that they are owned by brothers and when we were at Theo's we were waited on by the daughter of the owner and sat next to the Mother and Father of the owner. The mother's father and uncle started the restaurant in 1931. We found two wonderful museums. The Hopalong...

Oct 7, 2011 - Cambridge, OH

We had a beautiful day to travel...sunny, cool, breezy. We drove by the falls and Falling Water entrance on our way to US40. A good portion of US40 in this area follows the original National Road. We saw one of the original toll houses where toll was collected...2 cents for 20 sheep. The money was used to maintain the road. The mile markers are unique. Each one gives the distance to the next town in either direction. We went through some pretty little towns. The country side is rolling and mostly agricultural. Our destination was Cambridge,...

Aug 11, 2011 - Cambridge, OH

Had to backtrack through Maryland to get to Ohio. There was a toll road if we took the shorter way that didn't charge by number of axles like most do, but it charged by weight so we decided we'd drive around that instead. The western side of Maryland and into Ohio is much different than the eastern side. In Pennsylvania and the eastern side of Maryland it's primarily farmland growing corn, corn and more corn, as well as several apple and peach orchards. The western side almost looks like Tennessee. It has lots of trees and mountains. What...

Apr 17, 2011 - Cambridge, Ohio

Today we traveled some new territory in the Appalachian Mountains. We traversed two mountains by going through tunnels, which is much easier than climbing over them. Glenna took nice pictures of spring in the mountains. There were many trees in blossom that were very pretty. We drove from Virginia to West Virginia and then across the Ohio river into Ohio. There has been so much rain recently that all the rivers are running red from soil erosion. We only drove for four hours to get to tonights campground. I wanted to stop early and watch...

We're finally leaving Elkhart & headed to VA & Laurie's. Traveled as far as Cambridge, OH tonight. Had rain from Cleveland to Cambridge so the drive was slower than Dick would have liked.....smile! (He now realizes I get nervous when we drive in the rain). Mom & dad's anniversary today........they are together in heaven!!

Apr 21, 2010 - First stop

Started down the driveway, gave a big sigh of relief and then remember how many miles we will need to travel. We broke with tradition and bypassed Barkcamp State Park in Ohio. Continued further west and found a very nice campground in Cambridge. Campgrounds right now are almost empty since the season hasn't really started. I'm sure as we get to Yellowstone and north into Canada, we will catch up with some snow. We expect to camp in Indiana or Illinois Thursday night.
