Not your stereotypical KOA

This is a really nice KOA, not the stereotypical campground in a field. Very wooded, quiet, has some elements of civil war history mixed in among the campsites, close to the historical park. Nice facilities. Worth taking a look at.

River Adventures of Shark Pack and Salty Sam

... haul it that far. One thing the rain did was raise the river a bit, which was nice for the ledges and rocks we came upon in the water. Some sections we went through would have been a nightmare with lower water. We had another portage at Luray, and this one was a longer one that actually required us getting a shuttle to drive our canoe to the other side. That night we stealth camped (camping on private land without permission) in what seemed to be an old cow field - at least, all the cow ...

Wednesday, June 11 2014 Woke up nice and comfy in a warm bed! The breakfast at Quality Inn in Front Royal was actually good! The had bacon, cinnamon twist, bagels, orange juice, waffles, little baby muffins, packets of oatmeal, and a nice - and extremely overly ambitious - lady keeping everything stocked! The hotel provided a ride back to the trail, which was at 10:30am sharp,...I'm pretty sure that is to make sure us hiker trash actually leave by the 11:00 check out ...

Not Atlantic City, Tony's Place and Goodbye J

A travel blog entry by d.thorpe on May 24, 2014

Right, this is a 3 day spectacular, because the last few days have been great, but very sleepy and don't entirely warrant 3 separate blog entries.
So, no Atlantic City. Looks like we left it too late to book hotels and the cheapest thing we could find was a discounted 180 dollar motel 6 miles out of the city. Who knew America's version of Blackpool would be so expensive. But tbh, after the long 2 weeks leading up to it, I'm prety sure a last wild night in AC ...

... climb on to sing an anthem dedicated to this spot. Luckily this time I have a cameraman, so I can have my photo taken that I wouldn't be able to do with a 10 second timer. Then we sit on the ledge and sing. Tim sings a poignant song "Life is more than we Deserve"... I feel inspired to sing a couple of my post-Apocalyptic songs, imagining what the world will be like after man's civilization reaches its demise. I guess seeing this old industrial town surrounded ...

Battle of Harpers Ferry

... started a draft (conscription), there were riots in New York (featured in Gangs of New York) and one could avoid the draft by paying someone else to do it for you. Going rate was $300, and one man was found to have drafted for others over 250 times for money.

Also worth noting is that at Gettysburg and Antietam, the North only engaged 70% of their force in battle, compared to the CSA 100%.
Took the auto tour round Bolivar heights and ...
