21 Sep

Spent the day with my parents and went out for steak dinner at the American Legions in Louisville OH. When we returned back to the campground we were invited to a campfire. I brought my iron pie maker and they had three different kinds of marshmallow we cooked over the fire. When we returned back to our camper I had graffiti on my car and RV wishing me a Happy Birthday. At first I thought it was my Aunt, but they were not in the park this weekend, so it had to be the host couple who took a walk while I was cooking pie and s'mores around the campfire.

22 Sep

I went to bed I was 41 and woke up 42, I don't fill any different. I spent the day at the adult center flipping between the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians game. Both Cleveland teams gave me my gift, by both teams winning on my Birthday. I spent a nice quite day watch football and baseball games. While I was relaxing some friends came into the adult center and sang Happy Birthday to me. The wife made me a spaghetti dinner and we returned to the adult center to play our Sunday night dominoes with the other seasonal campers.

Being a full time RVer one of the saddest days are saying goodbye at the end of a season. Today is one of those days. We said our farewells to our neighbor. They packed up and pulled out this morning around 10:00 am. We received hugs and saw tears in their eyes as they pulled away. They are getting maintenance done on their rig before putting in storage and hibernating in their home for the winter before returning next season. The good news is we will see them one more time at the final pot luck of the season later this week.
M & S we will miss you, but will always remember you.
The weather is getting cooler and as every day passes it's starting to fill more like fall/winter is closing in. During the day the weather is bearable, but at night and early morning we have to use the heaters and big blankets. We have three weeks left, but I just hope the day pass by quicker so we can start traveling down the gypsy highway heading for warmer weather.

Officially, today marks our first anniversary of full-time RV'ing. From not knowing anything about motor homes we have learned a lot on the go and some from others we have met who have been RV'ing for years. We have seen some great places and met good people along the way. There has been a lot of good day, with a few bad days mixed in between. We are looking forward to where the road will take us next.  

I want to personally thank everyone who have been reading my blog this past year. I never thought I would get this many views. I will continue to work on making the blog better and will share with you the adventures we encounter.  

We have only three - four weeks remaining  in Ohio, before heading West for the winter. We have a few more places we are going to visit before hitting the road. Stay tune to our upcoming adventures.

Interesting week full of walking, learning and viewing. After a long Labor Day Weekend, we had to leave the RV park and visit another kind of park. First, we took a day trip to Mills Creek Park in Canfield, OH. The two view point that put this park above other is a water fall and a suspension bridge that is 118 years old. Mills Creeks Park established in 1891 is the first park district in Ohio and sites on 4,400 acres with recreation opportunities include hiking, biking, boating, fishing, golf, picnicking and in the the winters cross country skiing and sledding. The bridge known as the Silver Bridge, was erected in 1895 by the Youngstown Bridge Company to connect the east and west sides of the park. The Silver Bridge measures 86 feet long and 32 feet wide. The northern section of the park includes Lanterman's Falls with the views of cascading waterfalls.


Lions, Tigers, Bears ....Oh my!

We went to the Akron Zoo less than one hour from the RV park. Admission is $10 a person and $2 for parking. When we arrived at the ticket counter, I asked if they had military discounts and they did. It dose not hurt to ask and sometimes it pays off. Tickets were half price and parking was free. The wife and I got in for a full day of fun for a total of $10. Most schools has started the new school year, so we did not expect to see so many kids at the zoo. Some of the big attractions was the snow leopard, aquatic touch tank and grizzly bear. The zoo is located right in the middle of the town surrounded by housing complexes.
