Kitty Hawk, North Carolina – Big Trip 2019

Wednesday 5 June – sunny with a high 28-30 Celsius today.    We left Williamsburg and got to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina in about four hours.  The States are pretty close together, doesn’t take long to get from one to another.   Not like the provinces in Canada.

Side Note  –  Here are some key facts about Ontario’s geography, which is where I live.  The longest east-west distance in Ontario is 1,568 kilometres (974 miles). The longest north-south distance is 1,691 kilometres (1,050 miles).  It would take 24 hours of non-stop driving to get across the province of Ontario.  And Ontario is not even our largest province or territory.  Quebec is our largest.

Well it’s May 22nd and only 16-18 C but Sunny!  16 Celsius would be about 60 Fahrenheit.   We left at 9 in the morning and sadly we hit construction on I-81.  So slow.  Except for stopping for gas we headed straight to Gettysburg.  We stayed at Gettysburg Campground (Good Sam), site 221.  This is a nice park, very clean.  The owner told us this is the American Memorial  weekend coming up and he said lots of parks would be booked up.  We  were going to stay here 2 nights, leaving Friday but a bad idea with the long weekend coming up.  We have a nice spot, way at the back and private and quiet.  We set up, which takes about 20 minutes or less.  We have done this thousands of times and we have a routine now to unhook and set up everything.

The “BIG TRIP” 2019

Clint and I went on a long trip, again,this year.  We left May 21st and returned home September 28th.   We were only home a few days and then left again for Algonquin Park for two weeks.  But……..that’s another story.   I did post some items while on our trip to my Trums Travels Facebook page.  It was very difficult to post on a small phone while traveling.  Normally, I just wait until we get home after a trip and update my Blog.  I prefer doing it at home as  I can edit and post more photos.  And I can also put more detailed information and website links.  I am going to do a Blog page for each City we stopped at along our trip.  Makes it easier for me to write and people to read.   So Enjoy !

So, in a nutshell, our trip this year was 28,565 kilometres, 133 days, 50 campgrounds, 5 Canadian provinces, 16 U.S. states and one Federal District (Washington DC).
