Two Family Birthdays Today

Happy Birthday Ian and Becky! Gordon’s son, Ian is 30 something today and Becky, Nick’s wife is 20 something.

We were on the road at 9:00 a.m. this morning under cloudy skies and 68F (20C). It was quite warm overnight and we had one of the bedroom windows open all night. We had a great tailwind all the way coupled with Ohio’s 55 mph speed limit we were able to achieve 16.4 mpg at one point and 16.3 mpg for the overall trip! That’s a record!

Here's the photo of our 16.4 mpg record

We arrived at Hill’s Family Campground at Erie, PA under partly cloudy skies with some rain but only in patches and only for a short time at about 1:30 p.m. and were set up by 2:30 p.m. We set up the internet but not the TV satellite as they have free cable here.

It was really windy making us feel like we were back in Texas. The wind gusts were rocking the RV. The temperature was 75F (24C).

After we settled in, we went to check out the Erie KOA which is at the same exit but south of I-90. It is a lot farther from the exit than Hill’s and there are a lot more trees around so a possibility of not being able to access the satellites.

Then we drove to Presque Isle State Park but by the time we got there the sun which had come out for a while had mostly gone. We took some photos anyway and then came home. We had a real burst of rain and some wind before dinner. After dinner Gordon headed back to Presque Isle SP for more photos but I stayed behind and cleaned up and did the dishes and just relaxed. Tomorrow is a long day and includes border crossing!
