Berlin, OH – Events of Tuesday, July 1 to Thursday, July 3, 2014

On Wednesday morning, we headed out to Berlin, OH in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country where we’ll be spending the summer. At 5 hours, It was another drive that was a little farther than we usually like to go in a day. Although there are a couple of other campgrounds in and near Berlin, we always stay at Scenic Hills RV Park. It is run by a …
