Upper Deerfield Twp, NJ

It's had been an exhausting non-stop 2 weeks or so.

Thursday before last we traded up our 2009 Montana for our 2012 Cedar Creek Fifthwheel

This is some of the stuff we took out of the Montana and stored in daughters garage. 

It still took hours at the dealer to move in more belongings.

A week and a half later there are still things in the garage.  We've not had time to move in entirely and this is why:

Two days after getting the rig we, along with my sister Debbie, drove up to Driftwood, PA to our family cabin which needed some repairs.

The first on the list was replacing the stove pipe.     The old pipe.

The new

Windows needed washing.   Debbie tackled that job.

Fan and light needed a good cleaning.  Leonard on that job.

I operated the camera.

There were old shades and "beyond just needing a wash" curtains on the windows. 

 They are replaced with mini blinds and new curtains.

My brother had replaced some kitchen cabinets a month of so ago.  That along with matching kitchen chairs makes a difference in our kitchen.

This part of Pennsylvania is known as Elk Country.   A young one standing in a neighbors yard.

We were back in NJ just a few days when we picked up the granddaughters for 8 days, some of the time camping.

However, first it was another trip to the ER with Leonard.  This time it was gout in the ankle.   He's been suffering with gout in the toes but this is the first time the ankle was affected.  For three days before agreeing to have it checked out he could hardly walk on it. Finally last Sunday he could stand it no longer.   All's okay now.  For now.

We were due to leave for camping on Monday but went Tuesday instead giving Leonard a day to recoup.

 What a nice campground.  Turtle Run in Wading River, NJ.   Even while there Leonard was working on some modifications to our new rig.

While the girls rested and watched some TV.

I operated the camera.

One day we drove to Margate, NJ (about 20 miles from the campground) to see Lucy.

As a child I can remember when Lucy sat on the beach in the sand.  Over the years she became in disrepair.  In 1970 funds were raised to restore her and she was moved to her current location.

In Lucy's belly.

On the drive home near the town of New Gretna we were treated to both ends of the rainbow.

And I operated the camera.

Busy, busy. Love Lucy the girls must have loved her too.

You are a delightfully skilled camera operator. How could you possibly have time and energy to do anything else. *smiles*

The girls obviously had loads of fun.

It ain't easy being the supervisor and recorder for the annals of history. :)

Congrats on the new 5'er - it's a beauty.

Nice job on cleaning up and doing the cabin repairs too.

Wow, your new home is gorgeous! Glad Len is feeling better! The cabin looks great!

When are you coming through PA? Maybe we can do a quick lunch/dinner meet up???

I just love Lucy. Been there a couple times and took my boys. My older son flirted with one of the girls there and we scored free tee shirts :)
Love the look of your new home. Can't wait to see more pics!
