Wind blows where it chooses!

Chambersburg is up and over the hill westward. Gettysburg is kinda gradual down and eastward. (Depending on the route you choose to Gettysburg, you cross the National Park of the battlefield at one of the high points near the main memorial--eyeopening and worth a pause if you are up on how critical a battle that was).

@AMC RULES and I drove thru that at about 11:00 at night. Clear sky, full moon. After driving past the Boyer Farms Nursery and seeing the hills light up like a Christmas tree from the critter's eyes that battle field got kinda spooky! :shock: :)

We stayed at Comfort Inn last year and after a full day of walking around, I have to say the beds were quite comfortable. The A/C was spot on.

At the time I made my reservations the Comfort Inn was $ 85 and the Quality Inn at the same exit from I-81 was $ 70. I'm going to be at the Quality Inn. If you are coming in on Wednesday evening be there before 6:00 pm to join us at the Italian Village for dinner.

You wanna tent camp @Horse Newbie I got a couple of tents I can get ya. Have them for free you give them a good home and can send them with the Hosen I don't make it. Me thinks the missus put my tent camping days over although I did enjoy it. 

The Tage Mahal you got the hair to set it up. I also have a nice little 7x7 that's made many trips to Sturgis you want it.

Don't listen to Squonky he's a sally.

Few years back it was close to 100 for 3 days straight. AC with pizza and wings delivered to your hotel room or stinking and sleeping on the ground. I'll take no. 1 Monty! :)

Mrs. Newbie is thinking about joining me.

So you bring your hog along ?… that’s cool !

I do appreciate the offer on the tents, but I do believe with the misses possibly tagging along, I had better stay at a hotel… thats a good out !:lol:

I am a little up in years for the camping.

If I had one of those fancy toy haulers with AC I may would do that, but a tent… not so sure .

I made my reservations in October. The prices always seem to go up in the spring when people start planning vacations.

Yeah that year we took the whole next week off and toured PA ... All the hot spots... Hershey, Gettysburg, Three Mile Island... :o

Based out of cute little campground for day rides. Camp ground owners loved us and our little red tractors. I found a tub and gave young'uns rides and we got free ice! 

 

I would still be tent/enclosed camping if the missus didn't have to pee in the middle of the night!

@Shynon and @wheelhorseman and the Iowa Boys still do it.  They added RV ACs rto their rigs. 

Queen size air bed & carpet for the floor quite comfy. 

 

Never went to a show yet and said geez ...wished I woulda spent more time in the camper (or hotel room)!
