We got our first peek at Lake Erie today.
This is the fifth day of pulling our RV from Texas to New York (nothing too demanding, only about 300 miles a day). Tomorrow, we pull the final 90 miles to Darien Lake Amusement Park and set up for the summer. Wednesday, we start the hike.
Today, though we arrived at Westfield / Lake Erie KOA in the late afternoon amid a fairly thick fog. But, by the time the trailer was set up, we’d run into town to fuel the truck, and walked across the street and through a park to Lake Erie, the view had improved somewhat, as you see above.
The weather has caught a lot of our attention the past few days as we’ve watch the extended forecast, predictions that called for temperature highs in the 50s and possible all-day rains. Those temps aren’t bad, unless it’s too windy, but cold rain is not enticing at all.
Right now, however, the rain prediction is considerably lower and they’ve even raised the temps into the 60s.
An update on our plans. Two co-workers from last summer have graciously agreed to drive us to the starting point Wednesday morning. As an added treat, a former co-worker of mine from Texas who now lives in Buffalo is planning to join us for the kickoff with her kid(s) if the weather is suitable.
Anyone else want to join in? Use the “Leave a Comment” link at the top of this post or send an email to steve (at) stevemartaindale (dot) com and I’ll make sure you know more or less when we’re planning to start out. We will begin the first day at Niawanda Park in Tonawanda, where the canal leaves the Niagara River.
And pray for dry weather.
