Erie, PA



We arrived back in my hometown of Erie, PA late Thursday afternoon after a sleepless night of thunderstorms, which flipped a breaker and caused the inverter to quit working. It was a good learning experience as it turned out to just be a reset switch on the inverter, but it took a few hours to figure it out.

We  are now tucked away in the driveway of good friends Joe and Joann, who also have an RV which they moved to let us squeeze in among the plants.


Good thing they have nice neighbors who said it was fine for us to walk through their yard to get out. It’s a pretty tight campsite but the price is right!


And the flowers are lovely.


As is our luck this summer, it got into the low 90s yesterday, way too hot since we can’t run the AC on their 15amp outlet. While Joann and I went to a friend’s house for a birthday drink, Jim stayed home and ran the generator and AC for a couple hours to cool things off. It did get in the upper 60s overnight and is only supposed to get to 88 today. By Monday the high is predicted to be 67, so I’m sure we will then be complaining about the cold.

  1. It is so great that you can park at your friends home. You probably have a lot of catching up to do back in your home town.

  2. Does it seem strange to be back in your hometown in your RV? Glad to hear it is getting cooler. Running the generator is never fun.

  3. It might be tight but it sure is pretty!! I wouldn't mind the squeeze with a view like that!! Enjoy your time back in your hometown. :-)
