Gettysburg Trip

We left on Saturday and had our first stay with a Harvest Host in Catawissa, PA at Rohrbach's Farm Stand.  It was crazy getting there because of the steep hills but the view was great and really quiet.  We did get homemade soup and lunch meat at the store as well as an ice cream.  It sure was better then Wal-Mart!
We had a great time in Gettysburg!  It was the first time taking the trailer with the smart car in it.  What a difference it made in getting around to sight see.  The weather was fantastic all week and we drove with the top down most of the time.  We thoroughly enjoyed the segway tour so much so that we took a second tour.
There is so much to see and learn there. The visitor museum movie and cyclorama was fantastic as well as the diorama, the spirits of Gettysburg, and the Lincoln Train Museum.  We had lunch out most days. Dobbin's House had a great french onion soup and spinach salad with a warm bacon dressing.  O'roukes was good too as was the Blue and Gray and the Gary Owen Irish pub.  The Artillery Ridge Campground was so close to everything and they had a pond that Rich fished in a couple of times.  We met some very nice people that were camping there and even had a fire with them one night.  We left there and headed to Hershey Park for America's largest RV show. It was huge. We dry camped in a field across the street which was really convenient.  We left there Saturday morning and went to see Bill's Bike Barn and Museum which was cool. We then found ourselves at Hemlock Campground in Tobyhanna, PA where we stayed in 2012 and liked it.  Home tomorrow but we sure love being on the road!
