NY - Hickory Hill Campground

We weren't at the campground much since we were in town for the Wineglass Marathon in Corning, but it was a nice place and people were very friendly.  We were on site 1, which was a back-in, but convenient for in and out since we didn't rent a car this time around and just drove the Winnie when we wanted to go somewhere.

We did get a chance to squeeze in a round of mini golf, and of course Theo visited the game room and appreciated the cable and wi-fi.

Driving the Winnie worked out well as there was plenty of parking at the Corning Museum of Glass, which was in easy walking distance to all of the race goings-on, including the really cool downtown area. Not to mention, the museum is a wonderful destination in itself!

It was also great having the Winnie with us in town for some down time after visiting downtown and the museum, but while waiting for Theo's appointed time to make a glass project.  And it was also great for after the race when Kevin wanted a nice hot shower and clean clothes.  (and yes, that's an Aliner in the background...reminded us of old times!)  

Super great lunch and super great service at Poppleton Pastries on Market Street:

And the final product - a blue and purple pumpkin!  Theo's color choices, of course :) 

And some race pics:

Theo and I were assigned the mylar heat blankets.

And we got to see the medals before the runners did!

All hand made glass, made right there in Corning!
