Tuesday, July 5, 2011- A Day of Traveling

This morning Tom and I along with Joanne and Larry left Buttonwood Campground and travelled a southwestern route through picturesque hilly Pennsylvania.  We were headed for Renfro Valley in Kentucky.  We went 30 couple of  miles on the Pa. turnpike before dropping down to Cumberland, Maryland to pick up I-68 that took us into West Virginia where we then caught I-79 that travels south.  After about 290 miles of travel we stopped for the night just north of Charleston, West Virginia at a Corps of Engineers campground- Bulltown campground on Burnsville Lake.

  Since we have Senior National Park passes the camping fee is 50% of the costs so we are staying here for $13.00 for the night with full hook-ups that include 50 amp. electric.  Quite a bargain- and the sites are spacious and fairly level and the campground is beautifully located along the lake.

We did stop on the Pa. turnpike for a lunch break about 11am.  For dinner this evening we ate in our RV’s.  After dinner we walked about the campground and Sadie, Larry’s dog, got a chance to swim in the lake.

  We are unable to get television reception so Tom and I sat outside until it was getting dark before coming in to read and write the blog.  Tomorrow we plan to get to Renfro Valley, Kentucky.
