barnesville, OH

Barnesville, OH is close to a beautiful state park called Salt Fork. The park is beautiful but last year they were over run with skunk population. So it was into the trailer by dusk when the little buggers come out. We spent a week there last summer and used that spot as home base. We spent our days sight seeing in that area. Great glassworks are at Cambridge where we visited and toured 3 of the factories. We saw several museums including the Hop Along Cassidy museum.The Zane Grey Museum/National Road Museum is in the area. Flint Ridge and the Indian flint outcropping where they made arrow heads etc. is nearby. The Warther carving museum is at Dover and close to where you are. We had fun seeing the beautiful things that the family has carved. You are in the heart of cheese country and the Amish farms too. If you get at chance be sure to go and see Lehman's Hardware at Kidron (further north and on your way toward our little town). It is awesome! Has lots of items that are old fashioned and that you can't find anywhere else. That area of OH is rich in Ohio historical sights.Have fun!

Longhorn Hideway

We have been to Barnesville twice for short visits and have only scratched the surface of the area...but are growing to love it...so much we are considering buying some property there...Our dear friends, lifelong Texas Longhorn cattle raisers have been there since 1992 and prior in the foothills of the rockies..have a beautiful spread of some 5000 acres where they raise these beautiful animals and ship them worldwide. they are developing an area of their ranch and sell 5 to 10 acre tracts and we are considering purchasing for a summer home base...

we can't wait to get there.....

We've got a "partial" camping weekend planned. A friend of ours just graduated with a masters degree and she and her husband are having a cookout on Sat. at their house. It's not officially a camping deal, but even though we only live 10 min. away we have opted to take the AS and therefore can put the kids down whenever and keep partying ourselves and then crawl into the AS instead of driving home. Turns out another mutual friend has access to a "family owned" Argosy 28 MH. I'm trying to get him and his fiancee to show up, too. I might get one or two SoBs to show up. So, Friday night / Sat AM is working at our house, then camping, then more work on Sunday. One of these days my home duties will be reduced to nothing other than mowing the lawn!

As of now, we've got nothing planned for Memorial weekend. Anyone have ideas looking forward to 2 weekends from now?

Welcome to Ohio. I thought you were already here. Came through Mt. Gilead OH on Friday afternoon. There was a newer A/S and TV sitting in a parking lot in downtown - had Texas plates on it.

I think you made a wise choice coming across US 50.It really is a nice drive and the road is smooth and lots to see. This is why my wife HATES Interstates.I think I would have taken the bypass around Cincinnati though. But You made it ok thats the main thing.
We hope you enjoy your stay with us. Although I have never been to Rocky Fork I heard its lovely.
Hope we get to see ya sometime this summer at once of our get together's.

Cincinnatti and US 50

To me US 50 is the best way to view the city in a passing thru mode...I was suprised at the ease and continunity that the road still has through a major city..it winds down by the river on the east side...no traffic...road is somewhat narrow...but one can see the industrial and residential history of the city...only once does one have to emerge on an interstate like road...where 50 and 52 split but then it is back to the past as america was...and then you emerge at Milford...what a unique little city...

I avoid interstates like the plague in any situation i can

Rocky Fork is beautiful...but Burr Oak is spectacular.....
