Aug 29, 2020 - Jonestown PA

We have stayed in the KOA here before. It is a convenient distance from home for a first day of driving. We were pretty tired and we left in pouring rain, so we were glad to arrive and it was a quiet first day of camping. The campground was wet and muddy in places but the evening was dry.

This is a nice KOA conveniently located right off I-81. The campground is excellent. Most of the facilities are either new or very well maintained. The leaves in Pennsylvania are starting to turn so the hillsides are pretty. The reason we stay at a lot of KOA's (Kampgrounds of America, a chain of franchises) is because their reservation system is so convenient. Lots of campgrounds you have to call on the telephone, or you make a 'tentative' reservation on the internet followed up by telephone call-backs or emails, and in the off season...

We departed on a weekday and I was dreading the weekday traffic in the northeast, but fortunately we had no problems. Our route took us on I-84 west to Scranton, PA, then south on I-81. Our route will not go near NYC. We will be circling to the west about 60 to 100 miles from the big population centers. It was a rainy day of driving with a few slow-downs but no real tie-ups.

If you were worried about us being without a place to park the house, fret not, my lovely wife/travel agent was able to book us one night here in New Holland, PA and 2 nights near Hershey, PA for the weekend. Unfortunately, our one nighter here in New Holland has one of the best views out the front window that we have ever had in any campground, which makes us wish we could stay here more than just one night, in fact we have discussed coming back here after Hershey if there is space available. The campground overlooks the rolling valley,...

Dec 16, 2013 - Lift off!

With a cold 17 degrees, we have headed south to Florida! Roads were dry (for the most part) and traffic light by the time we finished buttoning up the cabin and packing the Trek. The states just keep rolling by until we landed in Jonestown, PA for our first stop at 5;30 pm. Unfortunately, snow is forecast for tonight - just a dusting - but enough to be annoying!

We got to our destination of the Jonestown KOA (formerly Lickdale Campgrnd) in good shape. There was very little traffic. We hit one snow squall coming into Scranton but it was over quickly and not staying on the ground. We checked into the campground and were shown to our site and began to set up. Everything was going fine until we began putting the slides out and our front driver side slide wouldn't go out. Here we go again!! Those of you have been close to us know this has been an ongoing problem. We have replaced the controller motor...

Today we traveled through Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. We are traveling with Clarence's brother, Adlai, and sister-in-law, Irene, as well as "Uncle" Jim. He is everybody's uncle and a WWII vet who is a joy to travel with. In Virginia Adlai hit a deer. It damaged the front of his RV but Adlai and Irene were not hurt. When we reached the campground the guys all gathered around. As you can see by the photos, Uncle Jim supervised. They had to cut the front of the RV to get to the generator and get it working. Tomorrow we...

Jan 3, 2013 - On the road again

We left home this morning on our way to Florida until the end of March. There probably won't be as many entries as on previous trips as we won't be doing as much sightseeing. Tonight we are at the Lickdale Campground in Jonestown, PA. When we pulled in about 4:15 there were only 4 other RV's here other than a few permanent residents. Several more did come in after us. Tomorrow we plan to stop in the Richmond, VA area. We left home this morning with a fair amount of snow on the ground and a temp. of 6 degrees. As we headed out I-84 that...

2013 - Florida

Sep 16, 2012 - Jonestown, Pennsylvania

The morning of September 16th we left Black Bear Campground and drove 177 miles to Lickdale Campground in Jonestown, PA for a seven night stay. We will leave here on the 23rd and head to Greenbelt Park, Maryland. From there we plan to tour Washington D.C. We didn't do too much here except toured the area a little bit, got another PSA blood test for my urologist at UCD Med Center, got our flu shots at Rite Aid, rode my bike, and did some shopping in Harrisburg, PA.

We're on the road again! We left this morning for Arizona. We have a two month reservation at the same park (Apache Palm) in Tempe where we stayed last year. We don't plan to do as much sightseeing as we did last year, so once we get there I will only be making entries if we do something interesting. Our route this year will be to go out Rte. 84 through CT to PA. In Scranton, we will pick up I-81 and follow it down to TN where we will pick up I-40 west to Knoxville. We then plan to head south to Chattanooga, Tn then down through Alabama to...

Sep 23, 2010 - Roadside Service, Part II

So, for the rest of the story. With the spare tire on, Gene gets to start torquing that wheel. Are there any convenient places to pull off the road? Of course not. Are there rest areas close? Of course not. In Connecticut, I assume because there aren’t an abundance of rest areas, there are unofficial parking areas. The truckers know where they are; we didn’t. It seemed like every time we stopped to torque, risking life and limb on the shoulder of the road, we would come to one of those parking areas within a couple of miles. By the grace of...
