Description:  Beautiful rocky hills around this old family dairy farm bordered by the Susquehanna River.  Our dear friends Tricia and Dan invited us to join them here where Dan grew up.  His mother Pauline, is in her mid 70’s and not slowing down.  Beautiful home, yard, and garden.  We felt very welcomed!  Dan has 50A FHU behind one building and we managed nicely with 20A-30A and our fresh water tanks.

Activities:  Day trip to Watkins Glen NY and Seneca Lake in the Finger Lake Region…  Floating the Susquehanna River in our SeaEagle kayaks…  Watching the horse races at Tioga Downs…  Having a calf suck our thumbs at a friends dairy farm…  Picking blueberries…  Bear awareness…  Just having fun with Dan’s family!  We enjoyed our visit here immensely!

Trash and Recycle:  Since we’re in the country, the trash was burned in a barrel.  Pauline collects the recyclables in her garage and carries it to town occasionally.  Since there were two hogs in a barn, we fed them any table scraps for slop.  More fun!
