Worth the trip!

Driving down the PA turnpike I happened to glance to my right and noticed something rather surreal—and quite familiar looking. It took me a moment to realize I was driving by the factory where my tiny home on wheels is produced. Not one to pass up an opportunity I made arrangements to get some maintenance done and also get a tour. It’s difficult to get work done while I’m on the road, as I have to leave my house for several days, but the kind folks at Xtreme Outdoors allowed me to camp overnight in the lot as long as I was out by 6AM each morning.

I made plans to meet up with my new friend Sheryl (whom I had just met at Raystown Lake) down at Ohiopyle for the day while they did their work and another beautiful drive brought me to this beautiful gem of place – Ohiopyle State Park.

Located about 60 minutes south of Somerset, Ohiopyle State park is a kayakers heaven. The day we were there it was too shallow for my inflatable so we opted to explore on foot and by bike instead. Waterfalls galore, natures own slip-and-slides, and tons of hiking coupled by near-perfect weather made the day memorable.

Perfect timing brought us to the overlook where we witnessed a 15 year old kayaker on his first trip over a waterfall.

The Yougiogheny River Trail is a portion of the Great Allegheny Passage which connects Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Cumberland, Maryland and was once the rail bed for the Western Maryland Railroad. We rode a good 15 miles round trip on it and then ended back at a local pub for some outdoor dining and beverages.

Would definitely come back to camp here!
