How We Ended up at Valley Forge National Historic Park

Video 41 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

It has been said, “If the plan doesn’t work, change the plan but never change the goal”. After already traveling more than 3,000 miles we had developed a mind set that life will take us where we are supposed to be. Our last evening in New York was spent at Schodack Island State Park. A fabulous campground (as so many in the state of N.Y. are) nestled along the Hudson River. One goal when traveling is to always see as many friends and family as we can along the way. Encouraged by a family member to visit her at The Philadelphia Museum of Art we went to bed that night believing that was our plan. When that didn’t work out, we turned to our handy Garmin, “Attractions features” and found, Valley Forge National Historical Park located less than 20 miles west from us. A quick review on Goggle told us bike riding was also available, so we quickly decided, that is where we were headed. In this video we explore the parks 3,500 acres and learn more about American History on the east coast. The price of admission to the park is FREE!

Bennington Battle Monument, The Real Story

Video 39 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

Wow, let’s learn about Bennington Battle Monument and the real stories of Patriot Colonel John Stark and British General John Burgoyne. Bennington and Saratoga might be a best kept secret if they didn’t have the prominent obelisks towering over the skyline. And we had twice as much content about Benedict Arnold and other stories to share but limited ourselves to the best 15 minutes that we hope you will enjoy. Happy Trails!
