Chit Chat

I just booked five days in Gettysburg at our usual campground for the second week in Oct. I know that is a four months away, but when I called for the reservation she said I was smart to book it now because they were already filling up. We will arrive there on my birthday so I am already excited. That day is also special because it will mark 11 years from the day I flew out to Utah and met Dean for the first time. It will be nice to have a mini honeymoon again this year (our wedding anniversary is Dec and it is always to cold to go anywhere so celebrating the Oct. date makes more sense) Also the National Apple Festival is going on that weekend. From what I understand it is a big thing there with over 300 vendors. I know I am going to enjoy it.(Check out the link)

I requested the cabin we had last Sept when we went up there and it was available. I am happy about that for several reasons. The first being is that it is in the main campground and not in the over flow area like the one we were in a few weeks ago. That means that we are just a short walk to the bathhouse instead of having to drive over each morning. Also the lake is just behind us and it was really beautiful last fall.

Ok, I confess, the number 1 reason I wanted this cabin is it is the one that is suppose to haunted. Nothing happened last year, except for a couple of photos which had some strange reflections in them, but we were told that others have had things happen. Things like voices, hoof beats from horses that weren't there passing by, and even a full body apparition at the foot of the bed.

i suspect the entire campground has some kind of paranormal effects. My daughter swears she saw the light outside our cabin (over flow area) and we both heard voices, singing and that strange horrible sound as if a horse was being slaughtered.

Time will tell

Patty, I'm so glad you all will get to go back to Gettysburg SOON. The way time flies, it will be sooner than you think. You love Gettysburg the way I love Mt. Nebo, Arkansas. I can't ever get enough of that mountain top.

I will check out more of your posts and also your other blog on the 2009 trip to G'burg.

You are so motivated! I haven't had a real vacation in 2 years. It sounds like a blast. But be careful of those ghosts.

Very cool! Sounds like it should be quite the nice mini-honeymoon and maybe the spirits will join you this time!

if you have one of those little old lady wire carts take it along! i remember buying apple cider and lugging it around the whole day! and it is quite a trek around the whole place and those bags could get very heavy! i recently bought one of those new metal cards that have hooks on them so you can just hang your plastic bags off of them. i think either william sonoma or sur la table carry them. joyce

What campground is that? We worked at Granite Hill when we were in Pennsylvania. Loved Gettysburg and the surrounding area!
