2021

Armed with Covid vaccines (literally haha), we booked vacations at Winhall Brook Army Corps (COE) campground in Vermont, Ives Run Army Corps Campground (COE) in Pennsylvania, Camping on the Battenkill in Vermont, Potter's Place in Maine, and Codorus State Park in PA which was the location of the East Coast Dutch Oven Gathering (DOG). A monkey wrench thrown in, Tom needed to get a biopsy of his prostate. Fortunately we were able to fit that in and not change our travel plans.

After a few trips we realized the Rockwood Trailer may not be our ideal retirement RV. Extensive research began and we zeroed in on an Alliance 5th Wheel. We always professed we would never get a 5th wheel!! We attended the Hershey, PA RV show after the National DOG in September to take a look at an Alliance Paradigm. The rest is history.

Winhall Brook - May 25 to June 8

This was our first time at Ives Run and we really liked it. We did some tourist things and saw the "Grand Canyon of PA" and enjoyed a quick visit with our daughter in NY.

Codorus State Park, PA
East Coast Dutch Oven Gathering - September 8 to September 20

We spent two weeks at this nice state park and enjoyed seeing old friends and cooking in Dutch Ovens and even competing (we won 3rd place!). It was the largest pot luck supper we ever attended. Good food and good people. What a great combination. We also visited with some of Tom's relatives in the area and did some grand fur baby sitting. In addition, we attended the Hershey RV show to look at some Super C Motor Homes and the Alliance Paradigm 5th Wheel. Phew what a trip!
