Sep 27, 2009 - Arlington, Vermont

Got the laundry done – rained most of the night, and on and off most of the way to Vermont. Even through the grey the mountains are alive with color, and every once in a while the sun will come out and it is like the world has lit up! Higher and higher we go into the Maples and Birches and Aspens. We found a RV Park on the Historic Battenhill River, in Arlington. Short drive from NY to Arlington, so we hitched up and headed out right away to get a jump on the day and see everything we could of interest in the one day we intended to stay. We...

Aug 16, 2009 - Around the Arlington, VT area

Today started out with calls to family members to wish them a happy birthday. Jay’s brother’s birthday was yesterday and we couldn’t reach him, so Jay made another call today. And I called my step-mom, Marge, to wish her a happy 84th birthday! We decided to stay fairly local today and drove north to Manchester. We checked out the factory outlets, which have really been done beautifully by creating new buildings right in town that reflect the old colonial charm of the area. We enjoyed going to Orvis again with this location as their flagship...

Aug 15, 2009 - We're in Moose Country now!

We left Lake George this morning and headed east to Vermont. The last time we took this journey in 2006, our GPS really failed us, as it took us on a road that we nicknamed “Tom’s Farm Road”. The route was extremely narrow and not meant for the weight of our motor home. It didn’t start out too badly, but the further we drove the narrower the road got until there was no way we could turn around. And then if that wasn’t bad enough, we saw the sign…Bridge Ahead. Now that was scary, to say the least, as we were well over the weight limit for...

Sep 15, 2007 - Bennington, VT

Spent the night in Bennington, VT, I think the 3rd largest city here at about 9,000. VT is so rural, average town about 2,000 but many, many of them much smaller than that. The largest city Burlington has only 39,000, about the size of Prescott. We have just loved VT - so beautiful. We'll need to spend a summer or more here sometime. Gregg enjoyed the Orvis store in pretty Manchester with elm-lined streets and marble sidewalks while I toured Hildene, the restored home of Abraham Lincoln's only surviving son Robert. The last of Abe Lincoln's...
