A freezing night in New York State

Our trip east on the 401 was uneventful and it was a breeze getting through the border. Where are you going? Do you have any fruit and vegetables on board? Are you carrying more than $10,000? OK, have a good trip.

We ended up stopping at a Passport America campground in Cortland, NY. Because we missed the turn for Camping World in Syracuse. Cost was $11. Gotta love that membership.

It went down to -5C overnight, but we were toasty and warm inside with the propane furnace and a small fan heater on all night. We also have an electric heating under pad on the bed. Needless to say, Timmy, aka the most spoiled dog on earth, also has a heated underpaid! The campground was called Cortland Country Music park. It was OK. Very small. Electric only and small sites. We were allowed to park across a couple of sites so we did not have to unhook.

The pond in the middle is a stopping off place for Canada Geese, so goose poop was everywhere. However, we managed to dodge most of it.

This morning when we were ready to go, one of the jacks would not retract properly, so Michael has to crawl underneath to spray it with silicone. Et Voila, the jack retracted and we were off.

It has been warming up nicely as we travel south. Tonight's stop is at Keystone RV in Greencastle, PA. They are also a Passport America campground.



  1. Glad you didn't have to go what we went through to get our jack fixed.

    Gotta love PPA.

    Safe travels.

  2. Burr...thank goodness for heaters and continued safe travels!

  3. Keep warm and travel safe.
