August 22, 2007 Newcomersville, OH to Champion, PA

We left the rocky, hilly, rain soaked Grand Haven RV Resort in Newcomersville this morning. To use the exit one must make a sharp right hand turn right into a narrow lane between a guard shack with cement filled poles and rocks and evergreen trees. I had asked earlier at the office about another exit and was advised "Oh, no. That is the only one and they do it all the time." So, we tried it and a hidden limb struck a vent cover and broke it. We didn't realize what happened until we got to a rest area along the roadway. We passed some of the tallest corn that we have ever seen. I am 6'4" tall and it was much taller than I. Ohio was flooded all around us. We photographed a very angry river on our way out of the campground. It is totally brown, filled with debris and very high. We drove into West Virginia on I-70 and then, a short time later, into Pennsylvania. We are in the Roaring Run RV Resort. This is southeast of the Donagal exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, for those of you who know the area. We are in the middle of the mountains and this park is very hilly and rocky. There is a lot of green grass here and is a nice looking area. We located a new vent to replace the damaged one. It is located about 20 miles from here and we will get it tomorrow. This area is full of things to see and do. There is also an adventure golf course that sis and bro-in-law will like when we meet here in September. There are some fine festivals in this area also during the time we will be here to scope out Johnstown, PA, as discussed earlier.
