Time To Say Good-Bye

October 1st, 2012
E, F, & G Campground
Rising Sun, Maryland

It's been a wonderful visit with family but now it's time to move on.  Just a few family pictures and family history for the journal so we can remember our visit.

On the way to "The Cabin" on the Conowinga River.

The sun came out and just happened to be shining on the yellowish tree

Gordo carefully picking his way down the hill.

Frannie starting the brawts and hamburgers,  thankfully brother John arrived to finish the job.

This is kind of a weird feeling for my Joseph C Conrad.

This is Joe's great grandfather who built the barn, with the help of his son Harry Conrad.

Harry would have been about 18 yrs and he wrote his name on the barn.  Harry, Joe's grandfather lived on here on the farm up until he died in 1954.

(Everyone says that Joe
 looks just like his father,
 Joseph P. Conrad)

Joe's grandfather, helped his father (Joseph C Conrad) build the barn that is dated 1900.

Harry married Edith Preston and they lived on the farm until Harry died.

They had five children:

 These three pictures were taken last April when we visited.
The trees were just starting to leaf out.
Through all these years the different owners have kept this plank original

You can just barely see the 1900, showing when they built the barn.

 Looking through a window into the Meeting House, the women sat on one side and the men sat on the other side. On the other side of the wall
Notice on the picture above the two doors, one for women and one for men.
This arrangement is so they are not distracted by the opposite sex.
Well darn!!!!!!

And all four of us,


That's it for this year's visit.

Next heading for Rehoboth Beach area, Delaware to meet up with 20 other Airstreamers and we will be starting the 40 day Southeast Coast Spectacular Caravan so I will be posting at every stop.

Until then, safe travels to all.

  1. I had no idea Maryland was so beautiful. Great pictures.
    We just crossed paths with an Airstream caravan in Gallup, NM. They are en-route to the Albuquerque Balloon Festival.
