Travel Day

We accomplished what we set out to do by coming to Pine Hill. That is, we were able to make a trip into New Jersey to worship at our home church; and, spend time with some great friends we have known for years. Mission accomplished it was now time to get back on the road.

We honestly had no idea of what we would find in terms of traffic and road condition. We did know, though, that the estimated drive time was between three and four hours. Therefore, we decided to get out no later than 9 am.

We packed up as much as we could the night before. Thus, this morning we had only about forty five minutes of work to do. Once I was finished with SEW I came in and brought the slides in. Then it was jacks up, jack blocks away and we were ready to roll. We moved to to the upper parking lot and hooked up the car. We were ready to roll and roll we did right on time.

It turned out to be an easy ride. Absolutely no traffic. The roads were in great condition with only a couple of construction delays. We had a number of mountains to climb but nothing that Elvira couldn’t handle. Most of the time I just left the cruise control on having to take it off only a few times when I got caught behind a slow moving truck climbing a long hill. The nice thing was with all the hill climbing we did, Elvira still managed a respectable 8.5 mpg.

In due time we arrived at the entrance to the campground.

There is still no one to check you in. In essence, you must make a prior reservation and when you arrive you need to know your site number. Then, it is a simple matter of just going to your site.

This is our new home for the next two weeks. It is paved, sloped to the back, but we have FHU. Unfortunately, it is also in a mess of trees so we have no DISH. We do have one, that’s right one and just one, OTA channel. Ah well, we’ll survive.

Looking down our block.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement. We had a great trip and we are now settled in and just sitting back and relaxing. We are looking forward to spending some time with my sister, Cindy and her husband, Charlie, as well as, doing some sightseeing. Life is good.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her two intrepid travelers.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.

See you on down the road!


  1. Glad you had a good trip. We don’t often hear that the Pennsylvania roads are good. 😃 Love Ives Run and wish we could have seen you while at Pine Hill. Maybe next time you pass through or in Florida this winter. Must be on my way. Cataract surgery today. Ugh!! Have a great time with your family.


  2. Glad you had an easy travel day. I love the COE campgrounds. Every one we have been to was clean, spacious and very pretty. And cheap! Sounds like you’ll be playing some Mexican Train in the next 2 weeks. 🙂 Good luck. Enjoy the area!


    1. The COE campgrounds are amazing just like this one. Well, Mexican Train, definitely. We get NBC on over the air so we’ll watch some shows. We can stream a few others. And we have Sirus on my phone. All in all not so bad. Have a great day.
