Hi Fellow Sunliners.
I know it is nice to see folks travels in their Sunline and new CG’s so we would like to share our 2010 road trip we just completed.
The trip was a little over 1,600 miles and started here in Central Ohio, up thru northern OH, into western NY, then up to real upstate NY….., down to lower NY, back thru PA, eastern OH, then back home. 18 nights, 19 days and 7 campgrounds, 4 of which where direct leads from SOC members. And I’m ready to go again…. Actually we are sneaking out for 1 night this weekend. Have to work Sunday but the CG is calling… and the weather is way too nice to not go this weekend.
So here we are in pics.
A rest stop along I 70 in Ohio on our day out.
Then to our first CG. This Ohio SP is right on the lake. Very nice place. We had a full hookup site for this 1 night. Needed to get on the road early so I sprang for the little extra.
Next we head to western NY to meet up with a bunch of other fellow Sunliners at Southwoods RV resort for 2 nights at the Western NY M & G. I missed the CG sign pic and a long shot of all the Sunlines. But here is our site. Was between Trailblazer and Restless. This is a very nice CG.
Then we where off to upstate NY for 4 nights. We could not make the timing of the M & G but we where there in spirit this year. Wonder if Canoe2 felt a bigger Sunline in his shadows…. We both had the same site. This is a boondocking setup and we have adapted the camper that no shore power is really not an inconvenience.
Last year we where at the M & G and there was so much to see in there area we missed so we went looking this year. The beach area at Nick’s
The start of some trails where you can back pack.
And Cindy just chill’in with her book at camp. It was cool this year.
We took a day trip up to Blue Mountain lake area. Beautiful.
While there we stopped in to the measure. Really neat place. Figure a day to see it all and take time to read a lot of the stuff they have. A must see if you are in the area.
The entrance building. Just 1 of many, many buildings.
This one caught my eye on the craftsmanship it takes to make a wood canoe.
On the way back we stopped into Eighth Lake DEC Park to look around. An older campground but some very nice areas.
We wanted to stop into Golden Beach DEC park but they where closed and blocked off for the season.
Next it was down to my Mom's in the lower Hudson valley. Here is the home I grew up in. Mom and my step Dad still live there.
We where at Camp Mom for 4 nights. Boondocking again, no issues. Some how I do not remember this field next to the house being this steep. That is until you want to put something level on it…. Our main farm was up behind Mom’s house. Grandma gave her the old corn field to build a house on some 60 years ago. This directly reminded of Camp Kitty in Martinsburg WV…. Gary said everything in WV is built on a hill, well NY has some too…
The pic looks worse then it is, but I’m glad the main entry door is in the back….
Then were off to the Pocono mountains. Leaving the area where Mom is at is the Rip Van Winkle bridge over the Hudson river with the Catskill mountains in the background. They say if you look hard you can see Rip Van Winkle sleeping along the mountain range. This pic is more of just the bridge and maybe Rip’s partial head in the mountain range.
Down I87 to I 84 and into PA
We stayed at Promised Land SP for 2 nights. Very nice park and very empty mid week like most OH SP’s. Thanks for the recommendation Mike and Frank. (264SRinPA)(Frank)
I could not find the park main sign but found the camp office. Again very nice building complete with working wind mill.
At the CG
At out site picnic table looking forward. I must say PA state parks are in competition with NYS DEC campgrounds on who has the heaviest picnic table. My goodness it must weigh 200#.
And in this park these flowering bushes grow wild everywhere. In NY and Ohio they sell them as high end bushes. This small one was planted at the camp site. I think these are Rhododendron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
We went for a look at the rest of the park and some of there hiking trails. Big place and lot’s to see. The main lake
A nice spot to rest along a very nice hike thru the woods
One night we went simple and did foil packets.
Sure a good dinner and clean up is easy.
Then we where off to western PA for 2 nights. And this park is beautiful if you are into nature. A very unique place and really up on a mountain. The CG is at 2,000 feet elevation as stated by Garmin. And I’m glad I had all the truck I had towing up this mountain with this camper. This is a shot on the way out, I missed the pics on the way in. Leaving heading west is more gentle then coming in from the east. This pic does not do justice to the hills on the way in. This park was a tip from Tweety. However she did not make it there yet by the time we went. Off camping in other great parts of PA. Too many CG’s not enough time.
And the CG.
This park has a unique bog. The water was down 3 feet due to work on a dam down stream. Must have been the year for dam work as 3 parks we stayed at had the lake drawn down. They have many trails thru and around the area.
Here is down by the main road. This is a new bridge this year
The beach side
Back at camp mini bears as we call them in Scouts where everywhere….. there are a number of oak trees in this CG and , ka thunk….was common on the camper roof from acrons dropping. Here is one of these mini bears out playing.
If you like camping in the trees this park has many. See here looking out the back of the camper.
Next we made it back to eastern OH for 2 nights. We have not been back to this park with this T310SR. Was here several years ago with our smaller camper. A very nice park. Big lake.
The campsite with the lake in the background.
Here is the other side of the lake looking at the camper. Again this lake too was down 3 feet for dam work.
And then back home. Hope you enjoyed the trip.
John and Cindy
