Sep 6, 2015 - US Military Academy

The highlight of our stop in southern New York – and probably the year – was our visit to the campus and museum at the US Military Academy, West Point. They do not let you just wander around the campus, so we took the guided tour. West Point was first established as a military installation by George Washington and later became the Academy. The first tour stop was the Protestant Chapel – a beautiful facility built in 1910. One difference from all the churches we have stopped in is the American flags and banners hanging from each pillar....

Cat Nap Inn 2015

Sep 4, 2015 - Southern NY

After Lake George we stopped in Florida, NY for the Labor Day holiday. Not much in Florida, but close to several places on Stephanie’s list. Our first stop was the Saratoga National Historical Park, which commemorates the battles here during the Revolutionary War. The major victory here is credited with turning the tide of the war which led to our independence. The Visitor’s Center has several artifacts along with an interpretive map which shows the movement of the armies and how the battles progressed. We went to Hyde Park near...

Bright and early in the morning of September 7th we left Hinsdale and drove 214 miles through Massachusetts and Connecticut to Black Bear Campground in Florida, NY for a nine night stay.

The Roscoe Diner, located in the hamlet of Roscoe in Sullivan County, New York is a frequent stopping point for those traveling Route 17 between New York City and Western New York. It was built in 1964 and is considered to be one of the busiest and most well known restaurants along Route 17.[1] Although Roscoe is a small town with a population of less than 600 at the time of the 2000 census, the diner served anywhere between several hundred and a thousand meals each day at its peak[2] although numbers have declined in recent years due to a...

(Saturday - 8/18 was the Schuck Family Reunion. Penny has been working on her reflections of this event, but has yet to write it and/or select pictures. Stay tuned for her comments ... coming soon on this Trip Journal!!) In the meantime ..... The Family Reunion and chasing around Philadelphia kind of caught up with us ... so we needed to take some down-time. In addition, the motor home was beginning to look like "who done it and ran" with all the "stuff" around and the laundry was growing out of the laundry bin. So Sunday (8/19) was set as...

Jul 8, 2012 - Florida, New York

Hello all from Florida, New York!! Yes New York!! Florida is a little Village just about 60 or so miles north of New York City! It was a great little place to wagon wheel out from to see things without being right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of the city! But the really great thing about being there was, we got to visit with Jack and Donna!! We met Jack and Donna and really got to know them at the wedding of their son, James to Robyn on the San Juan Island last September!! They very casually said "Come and see us", on your...

Oct 14, 2011 - Blackbear RV Park

Went to FDR library in Hyde Park on the Hudson River in New York. Was more interesting than JFK because house is there to tour where he grew up and lived. FDR and wife Eleanor are buried there. Saw the 1936 convertible Ford that he drove around. Went to the Vanderbilt Manson next door but was closing so only walked around the outside. Many of the rich people would stay at their manson on the Hudson River during spring and fall. Spend the summers at Newport, RI and then move to NYC for the winter. Next day went to West Point (also on the...

Aug 17, 2010 - Sue Tours New York

We have now moved to the Black Bear Campground in Florida, NY about 70 miles from downtown Manhattan. Today I drove to LaGuardia Airport to meet three friends for a two-day baseball visit to the city. Meanwhile, Sue took a tour of Manhattan that originated at the campground. She enjoyed the tour very much and made a new friend, Jane. Led by a crusty New York veteran, Sue, Jane and the others on the tour visited Times Square, Ground Zero, The Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island along with other features along the tour route. Meanwhile the...
