Travel Day 2 – On the way to Massachusetts

Today was travel day 2 of 3.  We traveled I-81 North most of the day, followed by I-84 East for a little while in the afternoon.  I-81 was great.  I-84 was a bit rough.  Still glad we went this route.  Thanks for the tip Duane C!

We stopped in Hagerstown, MD for lunch.  We picked up sandwiches from Chick-fil-A – yum!.  There was a nice big Sam’s Club parking lot next door.  Perfect!

We traveled 448 miles today to reach our overnight spot.  That was a bit farther than we’d initially planned.  We ended up near Hopewell, New York.  We’re all setup at Sylvan Lake Beach Park for the evening.  See you tomorrow Massachusetts!

Trip to Northeast U.S.

We’re on a trip to the Northeastern part of the U.S.  Our first destination is Middleborough, MA (Boston / Cape Cod) where we’ll attend the Northeast Regional Rally of the Heartland Owners Club.

Our next destination is Maine for some Maine lobster!  For this portion of our trip, we have no specific plans.  We’ll make this one up as we go.

About 3/4 into our travel today, we stopped at the Flying J in Wytheville, VA, on I-81.  We put on diesel and refilled both our 40# propane tanks.  We don’t use the propane furnace much, but we do use the propane electrical generator each travel day.  And we have lots of travel days.Flying J – Wytheville, VA

We arrived at the Staunton / Walnut Hills, VA KOA around 5:30 PM, after traveling 398 miles from home.  We’ve been here one other time, a number of years back.  It’s about 3.5 miles off I-81, so, not too inconvenient.  Here we are all setup in 50 amp, W/E, PT site 417: Site 417 at Staunton / Walnut Hills, VA KOA

For dinner, I prepared my version of Wildfire Grill Chopped Salad. Turned out pretty good.
