WE ARE IN GETTYSBURG

Yep, we are here. Got here Tuesday afternoon about 4:30 . Got setup ,and was glad to be here. This has been the week. We left home Monday about noon, and got to Hills Creek State park in Pa, near Wellsboro. It took me 4 hours or so to go 211 miles. The drive was Ok ,but it does take a lot out of you towing a 14000 pound behimith behind you. The campground was not easy to get to, the GPS took me through a few dirt roads, but we got there and pulled into our site and levelled up. It has been raining here like crazy, roads and other campgrounds are closed. Rained most of the night. In the morning we got ready to leave, but took a walk around the park for a while as the sun was trying to peek out. We left the campground around noonish. Took another way out which was on paved roads and it was a lot easier. Drove about 206 miles and it took about 4 hours. The roads here suck. One thing I learned is that you loose a lot of speed going up an incline, which most of the highways have. Melissa said I did a good job driving and even I was a little surprised I was not more nerveous.

We are now at Artillery Ridge Campground in Gettysburg It is located right behind Little round top on the southeast side of the battlefield.

After we checked in and got to our site, a nice big pull through, we noticed it is really wet here. They have been getting a lot of rain also. It was not raining when we setup so that was good. It rained a good amount on Tuesday. I was relieved to go to bed Tuesday night, I was tired. Wednesday we got up and noticed the day was to be brighter with some sun which it was. We spent the day getting things sorted out inside the Rv. We have more empty space than I thought we would have. Took a good walk around the park it is about a half mile to the office so it is not close. During our walk we met two other fulltime Rvers and talked to them for a while. One couple was just starting as we are but they have been living in there Rv for 3 years. The other couple saw our Heartland owners club placard and came by as they have a Heartland Rv. They have been full timing for 8 years and go to all the Heartland rallies, which they suggested we need to do. They also have been all over the country and seen a lot. They came by our Rv after they had dinner and we spent 3 hours talking to them. It was a good time and I learned a lot.

So here it is Thursday already. The day has been some sun, hot and humid. We went out for breakfast and took Cooper to his first day care session at Cooper’s Kennel, not far away. We then did a little shopping and kind of had a relaxing day. Picked up Cooper about 6 (he is pooped out)  and had dinner.

We will be here for a month, so this will be our break in period. Will update soon, and below are two pictures of our site here at Gettysburg.IMG_2450IMG_2450
