Beautiful day at North Bend State Park. Great weather.

Beautiful day at North Bend State Park. Great weather.

Herbie towed like a dream even on the steep and tight turns of West Virginia. We made it to our first destination at North Bend State Park in Harrisville, WV.  Since it is off season right now most of the amenities are closed like the pool and miniature golf course, but on the positive side we practically have the place all to ourselves.

Just one night and already a few issues…when we unhitched Herbie and started to drive, he took us about a half of a mile down the road and then died on us. So, we had to push him back to the campsite in the rain. There is a chance that the gas gauge is broken and he is out of gas. We hope that is the only problem, if not we will have to get out our How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures for the Compleat Idiot book and figure it out! The evenings are still pretty cool here in WV, so we ran George’s furnace which was working great until the early morning when it died on us, too! So, we had a broken down toad and a cold RV..lol. Not all rainbows and unicorns I guess. Stay tuned…
