Once Again We Are On The Road, Monday, August 26, 2013

It has been quite some time since we have posted anything but that is because we have remained home since our trip to California.  It is such a chore getting our motorhome in and out our driveway that we are not as apt to go out for weekend jaunts as we have done before.
Our 13 year old granddaughter, Maddi, was with us for a few days.  On Saturday morning we, along with Maddi, loaded into the motorhome and drove north to New York state near Watkins Glen to the home of Jim and Rose MacBlane, the parents of our daughter-in-law, Beth.  Beth was throwing a surprise birthday party for Todd, our son in the evening.  The party was scheduled for 4 pm but we didn't get there until 4:35pm and Todd was very surprised.  We parked the motorhome in their yard and had an enjoyable evening.  We spent the night in the motorhome along with Maddi and Anthony, our step grandson.
Sunday morning, Todd took us on a tour of Jim's wooded area along with grandchildren, Parker and Gabi.  We then got on the road and headed south but without Maddi or any other grandkids.  We came down to Gettysburg to Artillery Ridge Campground where we are staying for 4 nights.  I am scheduled for a medical test in Westminster on Tuesday so we just decided to stay here until that is completed and we are scheduled to go to Virginia for a Labor Day campout with our Traveling American camping club on Thursday.
Today, Monday, we went to a local orchard this morning to get some fruit- apples, peaches, nectarines and blueberries- and then a quick stop at a grocery store for milk.  The remainder of the day will be spent at the motorhome.
