Gettysburg, PA

This park is not full now, but this weekend it will be packed. It’s 4th of July and this is the weekend that the Battle of Gettysburg was fought. There is a 3 day reenactment this weekend. So we had to move to different site for the rest of our stay. Now we went to Larry’s and we took a walk though downtown Gettysburg. We stopped at Ernie’s Texas Lunch for hot dogs. Now it out of town and up to Biglerville and the Hauser Estate Winery for open mic night. The winery is set on a hill overlooking a beautiful valley with hills all around. We met the hosts, Ash and Tom. Chicago Sandy got to jam with them and Jim for 1 song. We stayed until it was almost over and enjoyed wine and hard cider and a lot of music from various artists.

College Park, MD

Mike and Liz knows a trop rocker, John Luskey that plays in the area. Tonight he is at Happy Harbor in Deal MD by the Chesapeake Bay. We went to Mike and Liz’s and they drove since they know the area. We met John (Moose) and Sharon, and Diane there. Moose plays guitar and sings so when John took breaks, Moose played. Chicago Sandy was invited up as a guest harp player on a few songs with Moose. Micheal was up singing with both John and Moose for quite a few songs. We met a couple, Dave and Nancy that spend their February down at the KOA on Sugarloaf. We had good food and drinks and a fun evening right on the water with good friends.

College Park, MD

Relaxing afternoon by the pool. Now it’s time to party at the Old Bowie Tavern. They have a Blues Jam and we met Candy and her friend Marc there. Mike and Liz live really close by so they met us there too. This was a really good blues jam. Carl and Charles are the hosts. Chicago Sandy got to jam with Kevin on lead guitar and vocals, Jeff on drums, Cookie on bass, Jeff on rhythm guitar and Carl on keyboards. Mike got up and sang harmony on a couple songs and then had a set of his own. Chicago Sandy joined Micheal on stage for one song. There were lots of artists. It reminded us of Looe Key Tiki Bar.

Charleston SC

This morning is dry but cool. Only 64 degrees. Our park has a 9 hole Frisbee/Disc Golf Course. Some of it is by a small lake. We saw some large cranes and herons. We hung around our rv and did some reading. Tonight we headed back to Parson Jacks for open mic. Chris is the host and we met Bob and Jake. Chicago Sandy got to play a couple songs with Jake on vocals and guitar, Bob on bass and another person on beatbox.
