Day One

I left Dover at about 7 and with a few pit stops along they way, I arrived at the KOA at 4 p.m. as planned and about 15 minutes after Jackie arrived with the camper.

This was also my first time using Waze. What a handy app. .. “caution roadkill ahead, caution car stopped on shoulder… but the best part was knowing the speed limit. I never seem to see the speed limit signs and the app puts them right on the screen, along with your speed…very handy.


It is a nice campground as are all the KOA’s we stayed at over the years. In fact, five years ago I learned that the KOA and Cracker Barrel are like a secret society for the mobile RV crowd. By mobile I mean folks who just need a base of operation and are not necessarily going to hang about all day. KOA offers late check-in, where you pull in, plug in, fill out your paperwork and drop it the box. In the morning there is a receipt on your windshield. Cracker Barrel has RV parking, I never noticed it until we needed it and now I realize how few places offer RV parking. Not that I mind because the macaroni and cheese and biscuits are always a highlight. We unpacked, or at least I did, Jackie put her stuff in the camper before hitting the road. Then we headed out for mac & cheese. Our itninerary for tomorrow is Falling Water, the Flight 93 Memorial and the Johnstown Floods Memorial sites.
