Spending a few days at Hagerstown / Antietam Battlefield KOA Holiday

We have a nice site here at this KOA. I took this picture from the deck by the pool area. There are two cabins along the driver side of our RV and sites for big rigs on the passenger side of our RV. Behind us is a row of back-in sites along the river for smaller rigs. Our site is pretty spacious. The cabins were occupied this past Sunday but are empty now. I think all campground/RV parks fill up on weekends with what everyone calls “Weekend Warriors”. During the week, there are a lot of empty sites.

The first thing we did on Monday was fuel up. There was a Pilot Fuel Station 1.8 miles away. The Big Boy Truck holds 33 gallons. The fuel nozzle stopped at almost 29 gallons. Phew, that was cutting it close. This $175 worth of fuel will take us a whole four to five hours drive.

If you overlook the difficulty we had entering this KOA because of narrow roads, one-lane bridge, and sharp curves, it’s a nice KOA.

The camp store is fully stocked with everything from necessities to gifts and fun stuff.

The pool area is nice. They have a restaurant that is only open on Weekends. I hear the food is good.

Checkers anyone?

We drove around town and found a tourist attraction. Hubby, as usual, stayed in the Big Boy Truck while I explored the area. Abner Doubleday (1819-1893) was a U.S. military officer who served as a Union general during the Civil War (1861-65). Doubleday was popularly credited with inventing the game of baseball for many years, but this claim was later debunked.

I got my exercise walking up the steps to get to the cemetery and attraction site.

After COVID hit, I don’t touch hand rails anymore. I will trust my feet to not make any mistakes going up and down these steps.

Earlier that day, we had to pick up a prescription for Hubby at CVS. This CVS location was located in a Target Department store. I got a $5 coupon from CVS because my prescription was a new script and CVS gives out $5 coupons for Target for new prescriptions. Well since I had $5 to blow, I bought a new toaster oven. This one has an air fryer. Of course, Hubby saw me carry it to the Big Boy Truck. All I said to him was “shut up”.

We took a trip to Orr’s Farm Market. Our campground is just a few miles from West Virginia. Orr’s Farm Market is located in West Virginia. This market has everything including a bakery.

We leave this morning. We will not be going over that one-lane bridge. The guardrail in the picture below was the one we didn’t hit, but only had around 5 inches between it and our rig when we were pulling in. Wish us luck.

God Bless, Stay Safe, Be Kind to Every Kind.

    We are leaving late August for a few months in TN. Our motorhome is 100 gallons, and at today’s prices it won’t get us very far. These prices are really going to affect our travel this year.
