Today is Friday the 13th. This is our 3rd day out from leaving our home base back in Newfane. Today is the only day I have not driven with the 5er in back of me. It was nice, I think I forgot how to drive one. I made a few rookie mistakes in the last few days. First I judged wrong on our first stop. Wanting to get further into Pa on the first day, I reserved a spot for a night at Yogi Bear- Shangrala campground in Milton Pa., 280 miles, and six hours of a drive the first day. OOPs, it was a long day. Then with under a quarter of a tank of gas, and not really knowing how far away it was, I decided to pull into one of the big Sheetz gas stations. Wrong move, when I went to turn into the end pump, I could feel I was in tight, so I stopped, four inches away from the gas pump, and just short of wiping out the back two feet of the rig. Thank you lord, but stuck I was , we tried backing out a little, but there were a lot of cars there. Thankfully a Sheetz big tanker truck pulled in and he saw my dilemma. He got out, and after a few back ups and pull ups, he got me out. Thankyou Lord. It was only ten more minutes to the campground and I had enough gas. Lesson learned, when it feels wrong don’t do it. After we got settled into our spot, it hit me that I knew I got lucky this time.
Ranger Smith and Melissa, telling me I am going the right way
Me, Cooper and Yogi
Hay ride anyone.
Cooper had a following here, no less than five people wanted to meet and see him, as they had had Whippets before, he was the hit of the campground for a day.,The campground was pretty nice, only one night here ,and we left Thursday about one, as we only had a two hour drive to Gettysburg. Getting to Gettysburg was uneventfull, but I still had that un easy feeling from the day before.
We have a nice pull through here, at the Drummer Boy campground. It is a large campground, with over 500 sites, many of which are seasonals. It will be in the 80’s here this weekend, and we leave here Monday. Today we went on a tour of the Dobbin house, and ate at the world famous Tommy’s Pizza. During the battle they served pizza to Union and the Confederates. That’s a joke.
We also happened to see this car, whatever in the parking lot, it is pretty neat, but is it safe.
