Well the adventure continues. On Wednesday, we moved to our last PA stop of the year, to Circle M in Lancaster, PA. I had heard a lot of stories about this place and was a little concerned, but this is a really nice campground. Two pools (indoor and outdoor), playground, game room, par 3 golf course, miniature golf and daily activities.
Our lot is a good size and not right on top of one another. Layout is a little confusing, but still I would love to have a family get together here as you can just about create a circle of campers. Circle M will be a return to place for us when we come back to PA.
We are getting a new car! Well new to us. As soon as the paperwork is done we will be picking up a 2008 Hyundai Tucson from a private seller in the Middletown area. Got a really good deal and researched Carfax, NADA and used my auto code reader and inspected the vehicle. I was so surprised at the amount of information that was available on the vehicle maintenance and condition. I feel really comfortable with this purchase. Of course time will tell.
We are at Circle M for another 9 days and then head down to the Jersey shore to Sea Pines for 3 weeks. We have been there before and Jim and JoAnn Rohn are there (playing camp hosts). It will be nice to see them again.
We are at Timothy Lake South in East Stroudsburg, PA and have found a really good restaurant. It is a Mongolian grill which means you design your own stir fry.
If you have never been to a Mongolian grill, your are in for an experience. You start at either end of this food area. One row has veggies and noodles the other has meats and sauces. I start with the noodles (rice or wheat), then add the veggies. They have about 20 different veggies to choose from. Next is the meat and seafood. Beef, chicken, pork, fish, shell fish, bacon, ham and more. Pick and choose what you want and as much as you want. If it is your first time, I would take a little and experiment with the different offerings. Finally you choose the sauce or combination of sauces that you want. Khan’s has about a dozen different offerings from sweet and mild to hot and spicy. As with the meats and veggies, you can mix and match. Once you have your master piece it is off to the grill. The chefs take what you have created and then place it on a huge metal grill and grill it until almost done, then steam it with your sauces to finish it off.
The restaurant is call Khan’s Mongolian Grill and it is located at751 Milford Road, E. Stroudsburg, PA 18301. The are just off of Business 209 in the shopping center with Big Lots. The have a website www.209khansgrill.com. Lunches are $8 and dinners are $13 and it is all you can eat.
We are at Timothy Lake South near Stroudsburg, PA. This area is known for its water falls. There have to be a dozen or more in the area. The other day we took a short ride and went to Childrens Park and followed the path to look at several falls. Its an easy walk along paved paths. Plenty of Park Rangers to provide information and keep people safe.
Timothy Lake is actually two parks, North and South. North has a water park (closed this year for repairs) and has more scheduled functions during the weekend. The park itself appears to be more cabins and seasonal. Timothy Lake South is more open and camper related. Still a good bit of seasonal but plenty of spaces for the transient campers. The pool is really nice with a life guard during the weekends. Weekend activities are pretty good as well. I am the undefeated frisbee tick tack toe champion!
Well, we left PA Dutch Country on Wednesday and headed to Timothy Lake South. Had to stop at Boat and RV in Hamburg to have the rear leveler that has been giving us problems looked at. Turned out that was a pin hole in the hose. All fixed and no more leveler issues!
Got to Timothy Lake and was checking in (late arrival due to maintenance at Boat and RV). I was waiting for security and talking to some fellow campers when Daisy yells from the parking lot, “Where’s the car?”, thinking that is a dumb questions I turned around and said “Right….WHERE’S THE CAR?” It wasn’t on the back of the RV. Somewhere along our trip we lost the car and dolly! No Kidding! It was gone!
One of the guys I was talking to said he would drive me out to see if we could find it. Daisy stayed with the RV and the dogs as we left. If you have never had this happen, all kinds of things go through your mind. I mean, I watch the camera every now and then, but not all the time. The bus also has enough power that I never felt a difference. About a mile or so down the road we found the car and dolly in a ditch. GPS took us off roading on a gravel path just prior to getting to Timothy Lake and apparently, the dolly came off the ball just before we turned off the dirt path on to the highway again. The car and dolly where in a ditch about 50 feet from the corner.
Luckily we didn’t hit anything or anyone. The car looked to be in pretty good shape but the front end plastic took some damage. I called Good Sams and unfortunately, they did not have anything available until Thursday morning. Talked to Chris, the home owner who’s ditch we were in, and he said that it wouldn’t be a problem to leave it there until Thursday.
Thursday morning called Good Sam back and by 10:30 the wrecker was on site and had the car and dolly out of the ditch.
The car has some minor damage but is drivable. The dolly is another issue. Pretty sure the dolly will need to be replaced. The adjuster is suppose to call by Tuesday. Will see what he/she says.
