Memorial Explaination

We left Littleton yesterday, Saturday October 1 around 0650 and arrived at Timberlane RV Park in Clarksboro, New Jersey around 1330. The trip was about 330 miles and the weather included overcast skies all the way with a mingling of light showers and heavy downpours. Traffic was heavier than we expected on a Saturday morning but with only two exceptions traffic moved at or above the speed limit.

The last journal update was written this past Wednesday in Littleton, MA as Ross was waiting for the arrival of the "Crappy Switch". The switch was delivered just after the journal entry was completed and the notices sent so we can now happily report that the switch was installed on Wednesday and the toilet is once again working properly.

Last Thursday we were scheduled to take a tour bus tour of Boston. However when we woke up Thursday morning it was pouring rain and we decided to cancel the tour. We rescheduled the tour for Friday and Friday morning the weather was significantly improved. We drove to the Marriott Hotel in the town of Marlbourgh, MA where we boarded the tour bus along with 11 other travelers, including a young couple from China. They were the only people on the bus without grey hair and wrinkles. The driver/tour guide was very personable and knowledgeable about the history of Boston and the surrounding area. We certainly did not see every historical site in the Boston area but we saw plenty and it was a very enjoyable tour.

Today started out wet and according to the weather prognosticator it will be off and on sun and rain all day. We will spend the day updating the journal, reading, and resting. Most of the resting will likely occur as we watch the football games that are scheduled today on the local Philadelphia networks. We are limited to the campground cable system because the trees block the satellite signal.

Included in the photos is a very moving memorial for all military personnel killed in Afghanistan. The memorial made up of dog tags, one for each miltary man and women that died during the war in Afghanistan.

That is all for today,

Ross & Marge
