Pohick Bay, Day 2

 Jonestown KOA, Lickdale, PA - Sunday, June 27, 2021, 164 Miles, 282 Miles For the Trip

Sites 54 & 55 at the Jonestown KOA.  Check out the Sign!

It is hot! Anne & Guido's AC in the van worked OK for most of the trip.  Good, because it hit 95°F along the way.  While driving down I 81 Anne saw a sign for the Locust Lake State Park located about 40 miles north of Jonestown.  Since we couldn't get a reservation at the KOA on the way back on the July 2nd, we checked with Reserve America for Locust Lake & found two electric only sites next to each other.  A bit tight, but that saves making a 320 mile drive on the way back from Pohick Bay.

We arrived at the Jonestown KOA a little after 1:30, and checked in.  We were suppose to be two sites apart, however the Class A between us moved out as we were arriving, and they put us together.  I'm in site 55, Anne & Guido in 54.  $54.00 per night for a level, full hookup site on gravel.  A nice concrete pad in front of the door, large enough to hold the picnic table.

We spent most of the afternoon sitting outside in the shade with the AC on it the trailers cooling them down to a reasonable temperature - in my case, 72°.  The new thermostat lets me choose the fan speed, so once it cooled off I set it to low.  The Micro-Air Easy Start addition to the air conditioner eliminated the compressor start up "thump" which is nice, and will help it run on a 2K generator.  While it is still a very loud air conditioner compared to the mini splits I have at home, on days like today it is necessary to get a good night's sleep.

Dinner was Bubba Burgers & Birdseye corn & asparagus steamer frozen vegetables.   After dinner we headed to the KOA main building for ice cream.

Until Tomorrow -
