Jan 15, 2012 - Morgantown, WV Stay in Super 8

Drove from Exton, PA to Morgantown, WV. Very Rolling hills- up and down and some snow. Cold weather. Glad I am staying in a motel - the first night of this RV trip. Super 8 - pet friendly - got a room near the front door. Walked to Outback steak house and picked up my take out food. I am near alot of stores and restaurants. Perfect stop location.

Jul 31, 2011 - Driving along the Byrd

The day started off on the wrong foot. We had a pull thru site at the campground so we wouldn’t have to unhook the Fit. When we pulled out, I was following the campground map to the exit. Sue suggested that I stop and ask somebody if we were going toward the exit. I deferred and said the map clearly show the exit road, so I turned down the “exit” lane and it became immediately obvious that this was not the way to the exit. Sue asked one of the people looking on and wondering what in the hell theses people were trying to do. They confirmed...

Aug 30, 2010 - Morgantown, WV

I get to sleep in today. Justin and John go fishing on the river. They get back around noon. John had a big fish on but did not get it to the boat. No “catches” but it is a good day on the water. We go out to lunch. On the way, we see West Virginia University. Although hard to believe, I think they said football starts next weekend. We shoot pool and rest in the afternoon. Justin and Dianna cook dinner on their outside grill. We give this RV park five stars! Campground: Justin’s

Aug 29, 2010 - To Morgantown, WV

We head from Ohio to West Virginia. At first, we try the scenic route. The scenic route through the mountains can be stressful. It would have turned a three-hour drive into a five-hour drive. We drop down to route 50. This is scenic enough. We arrive at Justin’s and Dianna’s around noon. I am surprised that John remembers the way to Justin’s landscaping business. We drop off the trailer and move to his home. It is our first “warm” day in a long time. We hang out where it is cool. We shoot pool. Justin and John plan a fishing trip for...

Aug 20, 2010 - Morgantown WV

The local RV parks in Morgantown were all full and after our off road experience at Beech Fork, Wal-Mart looked like a really good alternative. They really do make RVs welcome and we reward them by leaving a good chump of our bank account. Jimmy & Susie Enoch, Barbara's stepson and his wife, had a high school reunion on Saturday so we used this time to do our chores and restock our supplies. RV travel is different in that there is no one providing food or cleaning up behind you. You really are taking your home with you. Little did I know...

NORTHEAST TRIP 2010

Aug 5, 2010 - Still Wandering in WV

After a relaxing and fun week at Pegasus Farm Campground in Elkins, WV, we headed back out on the road to see more of this lovely state. Our first stop was Seneca Rocks in the Monongahela National Forest. I found Seneca Rocks interesting in that it caused my sense of perception to go a little off balance. As I stood at the Seneca Rocks Discovery Center, looking up at the nearly 900-feet of vertical walls, I thought, “Those don’t look so big…what’s all the fuss?” But then I saw a little speck of white and a little speck of red climbing...

Jul 27, 2010 - BEAUTIFUL

Went into town for odds and ends, like milk. Beautiful area, what a beautiful campground. Wish our Last Resort in Hanna looked like this. Read the rest of the day. Campground has a beautiful pool. But not hot enough for us to go swimming. Had to cancel the end of our trip to Starved Rock so we are spending one extra day at Turkey Run. Could not get the weekend as it is full.

Jul 26, 2010 - What A Campground Should Look Like

Very easy day no hurry. We are traveling 230 miles or so. Dan drove all the way. Looks like no cable and not able to get satellite at this campsite. Well surprise we got some TV and we were able to get the computor to work. This is what a campground should look like lots of trees and bushes. Gives you the feel of being away from everything. We will be here for two days.

Oct 7, 2009 - Morgantown, West Virginia

October 6 – Wednesday Wind, wind, wind and more wind was the name of the game for today. We drove 400 kilometers in 3 different states and it was windy most of the day rocking our units so the drivers had to pay close attention, as well as being aware of the hundreds of big trucks that were travelling the same highway (probably avoiding the toll highways like we are). We are very thankful for safety as we travelled. Most of the way was westward so we are getting closer to home. We left New Holland, Pennsylvania this morning, and driving...

Sep 7, 2009 - MORGANTOWN, WV

Had a nice visit with Sisters and their families in Morgantown. It's been seven years since we've made the trip to WV. The first time to see some of the nieces and nephews, we even got to visit with a couple of Gayles cousins. Today we're staying just east of the WV boarder in MD to get an alignment on the rig tomorrow. Then we're on our way again.

Jul 18, 2009 - Day 1

After a late start (dead battery)and drama about leaving the dogs we stopped by Nanny's to get her going with her new computer. She's a pro! Lots of driving today...movies, IPODs, DS games, phones/texting...a whole lot different than the trip the Water's family took 35 years ago...we read, stitched and fought a lot. Even the arguments about stopping to ask for directions are non-existent now with the GPS... Spent the night in Morgantown, WV. Joel made a "rule" when we headed out that we couldn't eat at any place we could eat in central NY....

Sep 6, 2007 - Morgantown, West Virginia

We are really trying to get home but . . . . We got a call when we were at Alice's from Justin in West Virginia. Justin is a friend of our nephew, Glen. John, Glen and Justin like to go fishing when Justin is in New Jersey. Justin insists that Morgantown in on our way home. We check the map and find that he is right. We say goodbye to Peggy, John and Aunt Dot. Peggy points out that Ohio is pretty much "along the way" for most of our trips and we need to find our way back here. She also is right! We make it to Morgantown by mid afternoon....
