Yesterday we spent part of the day unloading all of the stuff from our van that we used at the Hershey RV Show, and repacking it into the storage bays of our motorhome. It was a hot, humid day, and by the time we got done, we were both wringing wet. Back inside our Winnebago, the air conditioning sure felt wonderful!
The only good thing to come out of the RV show is that we managed to give away over three thousand sample copies of the Gypsy Journal, which gave us a lot of extra room in the van, and hopefully some of them will bring us some new subscribers.
After we had cooled off and cleaned up, we drove to the post office to mail out several orders that had come in online. From there, we went to the WalMart SuperCenter in nearby Palmyra to pick up a few things. Then we stopped at the Lowe’s next door. By the time we were done shopping, we were both hungry, and we decided to try the Emperor Buffet in the same shopping center.
We are always looking for good Chinese buffets in the different areas of the country where we travel. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give this place about a 6. We’ve been to worse, but we’ve certainly been to a lot better.
We took the long way back to the Thousand Trails campground, driving through the charming little town of Annville for one last look at some of the neat old architecture to be found in this area. I just love these old row houses!
Except for the time wasted at the RV show, we have enjoyed our visit to this part of Pennsylvania, and we wish we had more time here. But sadly, it’s time to move on. Our Thousand Trails/NACO membership allows us two weeks at a preserve, then we can go to directly to another one if we want to.
In this case, we won’t be going to another Thousand Trails right now. Instead, we’re going to spend a couple of days at Round Top Campground in Gettysburg. We met the manager, Carrie Freeman, at the RV show when she was running a vendor booth across from us, and we really hit it off with her. So when Carrie invited us to stop in on our way south, we quickly said yes.
Its about 60 miles from here to Gettysburg, so we’ll have an easy trip. We like days like this much more than those 400+ mile days we had on our trip east a few weeks ago.
Thought For The Day – Over prepare, then go with the flow.
