Family Meet-up in DC

This past week we spent camping outside of Washington D.C. at Cherry Hill Park. The campground location was very convenient for accessing the city.

We were joined for a few nights by Brian’s Mom, his Aunt Jan and their cousin Lynn. We went to the Museum of Natural History and really enjoyed the Hall of Geology, Gems, & Minerals.

    If you are still in the area, we have a private campground in the Pennsylvania woods you can hang out in for the weekend as our guests. Water, power and decent enough wifi. It’s about 20 miles northwest of Gettysburg.

    Always enjoy reading your blog. I know that you sometimes like to get podcast & TV show suggestions. Here are two both from the BBC, the podcast “IN OUR TIME” and is always very interesting. TV show is “THE MIGHTY BOOSH” there’s 20 episodes over 3 seasons, might be an acquired taste for some. Improves greatly with viewing, a bit too Brit in places. Shown on Hulu I think, parts of shows on YouTube.
