April 19, 2020 – It’s been a month since our last trip to the cottage. We are now in the middle of a full blown COVID-19 pandemic. The Governor of Pennsylvania basically shut down the State on March 19, so we have been very hesitant to travel. Being mid-April, we are way behind out usual opening time of mid-March.
Unfortunately, today is not a work day. We walked around and checked everything out. It’s all pretty much the same as it was back in March at our last visit. The firewood pile looks good. The river always look good and the cottage is fine. Hopefully on our next trip I will be able to start up and continue the renovation. Fingers crossed.
March 14, 2020 – Today was not a work day. We haven’t been been to the Land Before Time since last November so we decided that we better take a trip down and check in on the cottage.
Sometime, during our absence, the Lumberjacks showed up, felled, cut and split the thirteen trees that Robrandi had marked back in November. Many of these trees were dead or dying. If they fell over, they posed a serious threat to the cottage and potentially anyone sleeping near them in a tent. The result is awesome. Just look at all the firewood we have for our night long campfire sessions. I can’t wait!
We walked around the yard and checked inside the cottage. Everything looked fine so we turned around and headed home.
In Mifflintown we stopped at the Clubhouse Grill & Restaurant for dinner. This is one of our hangouts that we enjoy frequenting. You can catch them on Facebook at ClubhouseGrillMifflintown.
Little did we know that after this dine out the whole world would change when the COVID-19 pandemic exploded.
