Turnpikes and Halliday’s Winery, Milton Lake, OH – May 12, 2016

We drove on the PA and OH turnpikes at points along our journey from Washington DC to Michigan. That was quite an adventure. Even with an E-ZPass you are required to go through the tight toll booths. When you consider the wide mirrors on the RV, we can be wider than a semi. I held my breath as we squeaked past the toll booth with what seemed barely an inch to spare.

At another point on the PA turnpike we came upon a 13’2″ high (or low, depending on your perception) bridge. We were going 60-65 mph. Now, our RV is just under 13′ tall so we were good with clearance, but it was a little nerving.

After a somewhat high anxiety day of driving we arrived at Halliday’s Winery in Lake Milton, OH. This is another winery participating in the Harvest Host program (www.harvesthost.com). The winery was an easy, and short, drive off the freeway. It is housed in what was once a small church. They do not have a vineyard. However, the setting was nice as the building sits with Lake Milton on one side and a golf course on the other. The owner of the winery also owns the golf course.

We arrived early in the afternoon, enjoyed a wine tasting and then headed over to the golf course to play 9 holes. After golf we had dinner in the coach and then attended a comedy show at the winery. It was very entertaining. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and snacks during the show. It was nice not worrying about how much wine we were drinking, as our ‘home’ was parked just outside the door.
