Jun 30, 2017 - Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Waterloo Premium Outlets

We left this morning around 8:15 to hit Walmart before heading to Cleveland. It took us a little over an hour to get to the Hall of Fame. Parking was just across the road, since our RV fits in a regular parking spot if there is room for the cargo hitch over the grass. Traffic was busy but not as much as we expected. The wind wasn't too bad this morning. There are 6 levels of things to see at the hall. The exhibits go into the history and early influences of rock and roll and right up to current influences. Among other things, there is an...

Sep 22, 2014 - Oak Orchard Campground with the Hugills

2014-09-21,22 – Seneca Falls and the Finger Lakes We are staying at Oak Orchard Campground near Seneca Lakes, NY in the Finger Lakes Region. This campground is owned by folks from Bristol, PA and the man/owner went to the same high school as Bob albeit several years later.

Sep 20, 2012 - Sauders' Amish Market

Our first stop today was Sauders Store in Seneca Falls. It is an genuine Mennonite country store that is packed with fresh produce, bulk packaged goods, Pennsylvania German meats and cheeses along with specialty products for the Mennonite community. The baking and spice sections of the store are extensive and inexpensive. There were shelves and shelves of things that you really would never see anywhere else - from a spectrum of sanding sugars, bags of dried cherries, apricots and mangos, to gummy candy anythings. They also carry local...

Our 2012 Travels

Jul 10, 2012 - Seneca Lake, NY

We visited Seneca Falls' National Womens Rights Museum a National Park. The 1848 Seneca Falls Woman's Rights Convention marked the beginning of the women's rights movement in the United States.

Jun 14, 2012 - Seneca Falls, New York

Today we are in Seneca Falls, New York, birthplace of the women’s rights movement. In 1848, this small town served as the starting point of equal rights for women when a small group of people gathered to attend the first Women’s Rights Convention and produce the Declaration of Sentiments, modeled after the Declaration of Independence. It wasn’t until 1920 that the primary right under the Declaration – the right to vote – was ratified. We visited the Women’s Rights National Historical Park and the home of the key woman involved, Elizabeth...

We're counting down to departure day -- 3 weeks from today. (Well.. actually we're using this entry for all the entries before our departure) Itinerary plans for travel to Yellowstone scoped out. Glacier and Quilcene roughed out to the point we have a good feel for when we will arrive. Reservations made for our Vancouver bus trip to Jasper, Lake Louise, and Banff. We are checking out the RV to make sure it is squared away for the trek. The roof vent hatch needs some work, but now we have a hatch cover to make it better weather protected....

May 14, 2009 - Seneca Falls

At our last writing we thought we would get to Taughannock Falls after all our tasks. We ended up discovering an interesting grocery store, Wegmans, with many selections of hot and cold prepared foods, a bakery, produce, both organic and non organic and cheeses, many locally made. What a find. Whole Foods and Byerly's, at Cub prices. We boondocked at WalMart, until 2AM, when workmen began cutting the asphalt with noisy machines. I just drove 2 blocks away to Staples and we settled down for the remainder of the night. Then off to Taughannock...

Jun 29, 2008 - Women's Rights in Seneca Falls, New York

Seneca Falls, New York is a small village along the Erie Canal. In the early 19th century it was a mill town. The falls of Seneca Falls provided waterpower to run the factories. The Erie Canal, linked to Seneca Falls in 1828, eliminated the falls but still provided waterpower for the factories. Seneca Falls was a prospering little town. Today, Seneca Falls may be best known as the birthplace of the Women’s Rights Movement. Congress established the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in 1980. We were very impressed with the facility....

New York, 2008

May 21, 2008 - Discovering Watkins Glen and Seneca Lake

This was a full day of hiking, driving, and sightseeing. The weather cooperated on this day also. I visited the Glen a long time ago and it is as I remembered it - a deep gorge with walkways along it, lots of stone stairs, waterfalls, pools, and cascades. beautiful. While walking back, we came upon a big, old graveyard and read many tombstones. There were a few letterboxes in and around town and we took the time to find them. I really like this hobby and Dolores is having fun with me, doing this. We ate lunch at a good restaurant on the...
