Our trip to the Endless Mountains of PA

We happened to meet the owners of Pioneer CG, Ray and Kathy, at a local RV show in Oaks, PA. We were walking by their stand he Ray asked if I dropped something. He bends down and picks up a brochure of their CG. We talked for a bit. He was very funny and personable. I decided I wanted to plan a trip out to Pioneer CG just from the conversation we had. So we planned a trip in August from the 8th through the 12th.

The night before we were to leave, I printed the route info from MapQuest. I truly thought it would take about 2 hours. Turns out it was going to be almost 3 hours. I put the route printout on the kitchen table by my purse. The next morning I come down and my husband is looking at the printout. The look on his face was priceless when he said it was almost 3 hours. I told him that he was not suppose to see the paper! And didn't say much more about the drive. We had hooked up the trailer the night before so when we got home from work, we only had to load the furry children and off we would go. I picked up hoagies on the way home and we were on the road around 4:30pm.

The ride was nice and smooth with no issues, beautiful too! We turned onto the road leading to the CG and got a little nervous. There were roads or drives leading off the main road with no signage. We continued on the main road and reached the CG. Kathy was waiting for us. We checked in and she gave us all the info on the CG, area and our site. No problems parking the trailer at all. Set up, walked around a little with the furry children and hit the sack. Rained really good that night!

Friday the weather was iffy, cloudy and drizzle on and off so we decided to go to Eagles Mere to do some shopping. I was on a mission to find a keychain for our son who just got his driver's license. Along the way we saw signs "shops at Eagles Mere". We parked and went to the museum. The museum and history of the town was great. We asked for a map of the shops and were told we were in the center them. Total shops, three! there was also a bakery, realtor, ice cream shop and a luncheonette. No keychain to be found!! We went back to the CG to relax and watch the trailers/fellow campers arrive.

Saturday was beautiful and it was Durshore Founders Day. Took a ride to Dushore to check out the town and happenings. Still on that key chain mission. They had tents set up in a local parking lot and stores also had tables on the sidewalk. No key chains. I did purchase some soy candles. Oh my gosh did they smell awesome! They were having keg and outhouse races later that evening. We didn't stay for the races having to drive back in the dark on unfamiliar roads. So went back to the CG, walked around and relaxed.

Sunday was chilly. Glad I packed some jeans! We had planned to hike at Ricketts Glen but since we were away Friday and Saturday, we hiked the CG's trail. Took us about 45 minutes but it was nice to just be in the woods and quiet together. The rest of the day we relaxed, walked around and wrote down site numbers we liked and chatted with a few seasonal campers.

Monday was tear down and travel day. Slept in, tore down and was on the road by 11am. The ride home was good too. Once in the driveway, reality set back in! We will definitely return to Pioneer and hike Ricketts Glen.

But for now, we are just passing the days awaiting our next trip in September!
