Freedom and Liberty

Freedom and Liberty
I travel in Freedom but sleep in the security of Liberty (not only on the road, but in this amazing country of ours)

Travel day (Rockwood, PA to Emlenton, PA)

I am in the Gaslight Campground in Emlenton, PA. I got lucky and someone canceled so I was able to get a nicer pull-thru site at the same price as the narrow back-in site in the far back of the campground which was originally mine. It is a nice, grassy, level spot with shade trees on each side.

There is a very good restaurant at the truck stop about a mile down the road. I had all-you-can-eat fish for supper. The fish was Pollock. It wasn't too bad.

The weather held off for the most part. There were a few wind gusts that got Liberty swaying a little bit, but once I slowed Freedom down a little, everything came back in line.
It is a scary feeling though when those gusts hit you right out of the blue. I was able to get the picture above to show the clouds. Most of the time I was watching the trees on the side of the road to see if they started moving, at least I would have a little bit of warning about the wind.
I did have a happy spot on the trip. It was in the town of Warrenton, PA. Along the interstate, the local firemen and policemen set up boom with a giant American flag flying over the interstate. The men and women were standing in formation on the grass at the interchange. I honked and they
all waved with the leader of the squad saluting. As I passed under the bride, the fire department rescue unit was parked on the bridge and the men and women were lined up by it. I honked again and got the same reaction. It was great, really great. I grabbed the camera quickly but it is a blurry picture. I'm posting it here simply to remember it. It was a nice surprise and made my day.
There isn't much to do in this area and I'm only staying here because every other placed was booked up for the holiday. I may drive around and see if I can find some photo ops, but other than that, I'll just be hunkered down here until the holiday is over.
I hope your Memorial Day weekend is great.
Ya'll take care of each other and I'll Cya down the road.
