8/31/2012, Friday: Wow, it's the last day of August already. Guess it's been a while since I've been on here. Since Front Royal we stopped in Winchester, VA for a couple of days. We had 4 new tires put on the Jeep (ouch). Then we kept track of the weather north of us by Gettysburg; they were getting storms that direction so we waited that out.

We went to Artillery Ridge Campground in Gettysburg for 2 nights. It's a Passport America campground; was $52.00 for w/e/s for 2 nights. We spent the first afternoon cleaning and washing/drying clothes. The 2nd day we spent walking/driving around Gettysburg National Military Park. Between our 2 cameras, over 1800 pictures, 3 batteries used, 1 camera card filled up. Talk about tired feet and sunburn, even some mosquitos towards dark. All-in-all though, a fun day. Did some geocaching challenges and earth caches and got some smashed pennies.  The next day we moved the RV to a National Park parking lot and did some more in the battle field. There also was a ? cache at a covered bridge. That was awesome, as we've never seen one. You can't drive on it, it's blocked off, but it was still neat. It's a historic landmark, so it's being taken care of, except for the graffiti, of course.

We moved on to Hanover, PA Lowe's for the night and internet. I think we'll spend some time around this area/Lancaster/Amish area. We want to go to Hershey for the Largest RV Show which starts the 12th, I believe, of September.

Today we spent the day on our computers working on our finances on Mint.com (on our own network). It's a good program; you just have to enter in the cash transactions. They sure do add up.
