Made it to Gettysburg

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania High 82 Low 55

This morning before we left the Park at York, Cindy took Penny for a walk and wanted to get a picture of her being stubborn. When she has the leash on, if she doesn't want to go anywhere she just lays down. I usually just tug a little bit and she will finally follow. Cindy thinks she is hurting her.

After a strenuous hour and 15 minute drive (lol), we drove into the Gettysburg Battlefield Resort. (It really was a nice pleasant ride.) This is a large RV Park. The only down side is no sewer. They assigned us a site, and when we got to it, there was a motor home in it. They asked the man in the motor home, who was supposed to have been gone, about it and he said he had arranged to stay longer. The site next to him was empty and we were able to get it. I started to hook up the electrical and the 50 amp plug looked so bad, I didn't want to hook into it, so we went with the 30 amp side.

My wild life sighting for the day.

Out side one of the rest rooms.
I reported it to the office and they sent some men to check it out, and they had to replace the plug and 50 amp breaker. He showed me the inside of the plug and the plastic was all melted. He told me it was a good decision not to plug into it.

We found out there was a Civil War Monument on a pathway a little way from where we are parked, and I went to see it and have a picture.

We are just hanging out this afternoon and will do some sightseeing tomorrow. We are on the edge of the Gettysburg National Military Park.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. They have an excellent visitor's center in Gettysburgh. We were there the day of their grand opening back in April of 2008!

  2. Aww what a cutie pie!! Keep some small doggie snacks in your pocket to give her as you walk along, but NOT when she lays down. I just use my dogs regular dry food as treats ... they don't know the difference!!! You will find battlefield monuments everywhere ... and I mean everywhere. At least one for every state and regiment, etc. Find one of the maps and take the driving tour. VERY cool!!

    1. Cindy says she will try the dog food treat as she walks, thanks.

  3. Gettysburg is one item on our bucket list that we have crossed off. Hope you enjoy the Battlefield as much as we did!

  4. If you want to eat out go to the Dobbins House and eat downstairs. We loved it. Have you thought about a puppy training class? We took ours and they flunked but we did try. lol
