Lebanon, Pennsylvania Day 2 (GA502)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California. I’ll depart her tomorrow morning.

 

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

I’ve been here three times before…whenever I’m heading for New England…like I am again this year. A couple of days ago I read in an Internet article that there will be 58 million RV’s on the road this weekend and I have no desire to be out there among all the nuts. So, we’re hiding out here through the weekend and expect to move along on Tuesday morning.

 

 

Normally we do not have anything on our schedule calendar. However, Mary has a grandson graduating High School in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 6th…so she booked a June 5th flight out of Newark, New Jersey. She wanted a non-stop flight so had to fly out of a major airport. Then back to her home in California for a July 4th family reunion. She is currently scheduled to fly back to rejoin me on July 16th at Hartford, Connecticut.

 

 

Once she departs Newark, I’ll continue on with the motorhome to my son’s home in southeastern Connecticut where my oldest grand-daughter graduates High School on June 20th. I’ll visit my son, daughter-in-law and grand kids until Mary returns. We’ll then visit some of my cousins and long-time friends until we depart for the State of Washington on or about August 8th.

 

 

The weather has been really crazy…some more!. Two days ago we were sweltering in the heat and humidity. Yesterday it was cold rainy and windy. We hid out inside the motorhome where Mary had the heater running to stay warm. We’ve had a lot of trouble finding nice sunny 69 degree days in 2013. Ever since we started the year deep in south Texas it seems as though it’s been either too hot or too cold. 88 one day…55 the next day kind of thing.

Thousand Trails Hershey RV Resort – Lebanon, Pennsylvania

The motorhome is currently parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. My current departure date is scheduled for December 1st. 11 days and counting!

During this remaining time I’ll be attending to my cataract surgery, cleaning, routine maintenance and minor repairs to the motorhome and Bronco in addition to assisting Mary with her activities. None of these items are particularly exciting to write about…so…instead I’ll be showing Picasa Web Albums from our 682 day, 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States. It was Mary’s second circumnavigation and the sixth for myself.

Unless we do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily. So come back tomorrow.

To read about today’s photo album location, click this link…http://www.thousandtrails.com/pennsylvania/hershey-rv-camping-resort/

CLICK ON THE BELOW PHOTO. ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE PHOTO ALBUM, SIMPLY CLICK “SLIDESHOW” AND ENJOY!

Thousand Trails Hershey RV Resort, Lebanon, Pennsylvania

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

The cataract surgery of my right eye was conducted on October 9th and my left eye on November 6th. Both eyes are now at 20/20. The only remaining item left (other than eye drops until early December) is a visit to the optometrist to be fitted for reading glasses at the VA Hospital in Livermore, California on November 25th.

Yesterday was a cloudy day with showers and 58 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy with showers and 56 degrees.

Allentown, Pennsylvania – Day 1

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 75 miles from Lebanon to Allentown, Pennsylvania. The drive in a heavy downpour of rain took three hours and was totally fatiguing. We are parked at American Legion Post #367 and expect to depart tomorrow.

Thousand Trails Hershey RV Resort, Lebanon, Pennsylvania – Day 4

We are parked at Thousand Trails Hershey RV Resort at Lebanon, Pennsylvania. We will move along later this morning.

You can read all about this RV Resort by clicking this link…
https://www.thousandtrails.com/getaways/pennsylvania/hershey.asp

Yesterday was sunny and 75 degrees…the first nice day we have had in a long time. More thunderstorms forecast for today.

Yesterday was also Memorial Day. In the activities schedule we received when we arrived, it said for yesterday…

10:00 AM – Memorial Day  Celebration at the Flag Pole (ranger station). The veterans Campbelltown VFW will be here to perform the Ceremony with a 21 gun salute, followed by our Parade, Golf Carts, Bicycles and Walkers. Sounds good we said to each other…let’s attend!

I returned from my walk at 9:15 and shortly thereafter heard three rounds of rifle fire…looked out the window and saw the seven vets saluting the flag. What the heck? Come to find out there was a communication gap between the vets and the park. They came early and had to move on for other obligations. At 10:00 AM we went to the ranger station and this is what we saw…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

004

Assistant Manager Pam explained the communication problem, apologized for the mix-up and said we would have the remainder of the program anyways. She read a piece about the flag, we said the Pledge of Allegiance and sang My Country ‘Tis Of Thee…

005

After the ceremonies were complete, she asked if any of the veterans would like to speak. Four of us did…

006

When my turn, I thanked everyone for attending and for remembering the special meaning of the day. Then the parade started…

007

008

009

010

011

012

Due to our physical situations, we did not walk the parade route…

013

The remainder of our day involved reading, some computer time and napping. We hope you had a nice Memorial Day.
