This week I started my yearly snowbird journey south. My extended road trip in the tin can cottage will take me to Campbellsville, Kentucky. There I will stay for the next four months while working at one of Amazon’s Fulfillment Centers. Come December, with winter barking at my heels I’ll make a beeline for points farther south.
My first day out I drove 200 miles for an overnight stay at Shawnee State Park in Pennsylvania. I unhooked my car once I got there (I tow it behind the motorhome) and visited the Flight 93 Memorial.
Today, after driving 180 miles which took me through Wheeling, West Virginia and into Ohio I landed at Barkcamp State Park for no reason other than the fact that I’ve never been here.
Just down the road from my campsite, Barkcamp has a collection of pioneer buildings and antique farm machines that I found worthy of braving the pesky gnats to take some photos to share with you.
By the way, the park derives its unusual name from Barkcamp Creek, once the site of a logging camp where logs were stripped of their bark in preparation for delivery to the mill.
