We got a very early start for the day. Our journey here was uneventful which when traveling via RV – that’s a good thing! We’ve had our share of mishaps in the past.
The ride from Harrisonburg, VA to College Park (RV park location), Maryland was going to be about 2.5 hours. We knew it would take longer with our slow RV speeds up hills, pee stops, and fuel (6 MPG). We also hit a little traffic as we got close to DC. The RV park, located in Maryland is called Cherry Hill Park. A HUGE place - probably the largest RV park we’ve ever stayed in. The check-in counter had 4 employees working it. They have a mini golf course, pools, cafe, etc. It’s quite the resort. It’s not the nicest we’ve stayed in but hands down the largest.
Above: Check-in seemed to have taken a long time. I think Jim got the newbie.
We pulled into our site, and began setup. The water hook-up was a thin flimsy pipe protruding from the ground. Apparently it didn’t appreciate the tug Jim gave on the hose which snapped the pipe like a toothpick.
With a call to the office, the maintenance crew arrived quickly, cut off the water and made a fast repair confiding that this was the 5th geyser today.
Once settled in, we ventured into DC. We drove the Jeep to a nearby Metro station, parked and then rode into DC.
After arriving into DC, the first thing on the agenda was to get a marriage license. There was no line and the clerk was very friendly. We were told by 2 employees that the license is good indefinitely. Sometime we’ll get back here and get hitched. Right now the wait for a civil ceremony is 8 weeks.
Next was the BEST part. A Segway tour. 3 hours on a guided Segway tour. It took 5 minutes to feel comfortable operating it. Within 10 minutes the group was full of experts. It was amazing. It was fun! The hardest part was standing. Yes, it’s like standing in one place but there are opportunities to hop off and stretch or just flex the ankle a bit. This was so worth it. We were in a group of 6 and all of us felt the same way!
