The main reason for staying in this area was the proximity to my mom’s home in New Jersey. Black Bear Campground is the only full-service RV park in the area, located about a 10-minutes drive from the quaint town of Warwick, NY, and about 45 minutes to Oradell, NJ. It is open year round, but most park amenities were closed due to Covid. All transactions were handled over the phone. Their facilities had been closed since March of 2020. While the RV sites are well maintained, their buildings look quite outdated and in need of some loving.
The next day, I woke up with a nasty headache under my eyes and in my forehead. I was very congested and achy with a slight sore throat. Did I have Covid? I didn’t get tested. Did Scott actually have asymptomatic Covid or was it a false-positive? By the next morning, I was completely fine. We walked around the campground talking about how much I wanted to go visit my mom. All I could do right now was call her on the phone. I was so close…yet so far.
On Tuesday, we drove to Anthony Wayne Recreation Area in Harriman State Park. It was so good to get out somewhere. We enjoyed a six-mile hike out and back with 1,386’ elevation gain.
The following morning, I woke up with a pulled hamstring in my left leg. It was quite painful. It would last for six months.
Our quarantine period was ending and I got a PCR test for Covid. It was negative! Scott headed to New Jersey with the RV for a week while I flew to Charleston, SC, to meet up with my sister, Rosie, to attend a conference at Wild Dunes Resort. Fabulous!!
While I was playing in Charleston, SC, Scott was hanging out at Worthington State Forest in New Jersey.
Our next stop together is Barnegat, New Jersey.
