Anxious to Get to Pennsylvania…

Tuesday, Sept 13-Monday, Sept 26, 2016

It was an uneventful trip to Pennsylvania  (thank God!!).  Arrived at Fid & Jessica’s about 4:30 pm.

Called Jess to let her know we were close.  She said she was going to meet us BEFORE we got to her house because…the GPS would take us a way that we couldn’t get into their driveway.

They just finished building a log home in Pine Grove, PA.  We had not been there before.  It’s about an hour northeast of Harrisburg (where Jess & the girls used to live).  Her cousin Annmarie & family live up there so Jess would spend quite a bit of time there.  Annmarie’s husband, Ryan, introduced Fid  (aka Brandon Fidler) & Jessica.  One thing led to another…yep, they fell in love & Jess went from a city mouse to a country mouse.

Anyway, it’s a good thing we followed Jess.  In this area there aren’t a hellava lot of places to turn a truck & 40′ rig around! 20160925_185203 20160925_185331

We got up the driveway…a lot slower than Jessica did! (She thinks 40 mph on a loooong gravel driveway is pretty normal).  We got parked, hooked up (they have 50 amp service, water & sewer hook-ups since they lived in a trailer until their house was done…yah for us!)

We had such a nice time with all of them…Fid, Jessica, Madison & Lola!

 

 

 

 

 

They have a busy house!  Friends stop over almost every night.,,Breanna (B), Alex, Kiefer, etc, etc, etc!  Poor things…they just moved in a few days before we got there.

Lola had a recipe book.  She found some simple recipe’s she wanted to make for dinner one night & asked me to help.  We had a great time.  She’s quite the cook!

There is a bar up there that most seem to frequent called The Cat (Black Pussycat)!  It’s in a house…in the basement!  I didn’t have the pleasure of going but…Georgie, Jessica & Fid went a few times.

Took some very nice rides!  Even a couple with Jess & Fid!  One ride Fid took us on was to the Appalachian Trail to a beautiful overlook.

We were invited to Sunday Brunch with Fid’s family for Jessica’s birthday.  It was a little chilly (for us anyway).

There was a HUGE raffle at Pine Grove Fire Hose Hook & Ladder Fire Company.  When I say huge, I mean HUGE!  They gave away prizes of $50, $100 and the grand prize was $10,000!  (we didn’t win anything) That’s a lot of money!  Tickets were $20 each.  Sandwiches, sides & soda were included!

It seems everyone in Pine Grove is a volunteer fire fighter…men & women.  Stacey Fidler (Fid’s sister) even drives a fire truck!  Very impressive!  The fire house also has a bar…$1 for a bottle of beer!

We had such a nice time!  The weather was perfect!  It was hard to leave but it was starting to cool off a little more than we’re comfortable with plus…Florida was calling!
