I have been dreaming of going to Gettysburg Pennsylvania for awhile now, so tonight I map quested it. Did you know I can be there in 4.0 hours 28 minutes It is only 257.60 miles away. I have another vacation coming up in September. My husband says no camping, but It is cheap to camp....
The plot thickens....

I love a thick plot! :)

Go for it. Gettysburg is a very cool place to visit. And September is a great time to be camping..not too hot, not too cool.

That would be so fun. Even the camping part. You can squeeze more vacations in that way!

Hey, just do it.

Camping in September will probably be better than camping in JULY which is what I just did. And it is cheaper and a great experience, even if it does require a great deal of work, stamina, patience, lack of hygiene and sweat.

Also, on the mileage/drive time thing keep in mind that any travel above the middle-Va. area will equate to traffic problems the likes of which will make you want to run screaming to an insane asylum. So you need to factor that into your plans.

Do it and enjoy!

I hope you get to go. We went when Kristen was about 10. We were staying with relatives in Washington DC and drove up for the day. We rented a cassette and followed a prescribed route through the different battle sites as the tape explained what happened where. It is so much better than Manassas as far as a museum site.

I can truly say that this is the only time in my life when I have felt the presence of...spirits?? Dan felt it too. I think if your grandson went he would be overwhelmed.
