Aug 28, 2019 - Brattleboro - Dummerston

We moved to the Brattleboro KOA in Dummerston, Vermont on August 28th for a week. This was a nice little KOA conveniently located in southern Vermont. We had several rides planned on the motorcycle and the weather was vey cooperative. We rode to the town of Woodstock and walked around for a couple hours. We ate lunch at a local café and then walked over to a covered bridge in town. Cute bridge. Another day we rode the bike on a covered bridge scouting trip and managed to see quite a few. We also ate lunch at a small diner - it was yummy. We...

2019 Life in our RV

Sep 24, 2018 - Quechdee Gorge to Brattleboro, VT

September 24, 2018 Today was sightseeing in both NH and VT. Drove down 12A in NH towards Cornish where we crossed the Connecticut River on the 1866 Cornish-Windsor Covered Bridge, one of the longest wooden bridges in the country. Windsor is the Birthplace of Vermont and where the Vermont constitution was adopted in 1777. This constitution was the first to prevent slavery and establish universal manhood suffrage! Vermont was admitted to the Union in 1791. Just up the street was the American Precision Museum which was fascinating. Windsor and...

Sep 28, 2017 - Ski Resorts, Ice Creameries, Wineries and colourful hikes - New England Road Trip

A big drive today, we had to go way North to experience the fall colours so it involved a lot of driving but there were highlights inbetween. We left early (surprise, surprise) and our first stop was a hike in the Quechee Gorge, a pretty trail and the walk was in anticipation of the icecream we intended to indulge in at the famous Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory, America's most famous ice cream. We were surprised at the drop in temperature today, not only high up in the mountains where we were but generally, the temperature has dropped...

Sep 27, 2017 - 'Leaf Peepers' during Fall in New England

Yes, we have joined the locals and are now officially 'Leaf Peepers' during Fall in New England. So pretty as you will see in Facebook pics. Unfortunately, as mentioned previously, we are about 2 weeks too early for the full on Fall colours, however are enjoying a glimpse of the Autumn colours, and the advantages are beautiful summer days and very few tourists, so easy exploring. We started out early of course to make the most of the day, followed a driving loop out of our travel book, which was beautifully scenic, through picture post card...

Sep 26, 2017 - State hopping - our road trip through New England

What a great, pretty and interesting day, State hopping (crossed 4 USA states in one day ie. Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut and now in Vermont) during our New England road trip. We had planned on doing the coastal trip around Newport early this morning, however the mist was even thicker than last night (in fact the local newspaper reported on the heavy fog around Newport, it was so unusually thick) so there was no point and so instead, we started our trip earlier than expected. Our first stop was for breakfast at a little coastal...

Oct 20, 2013 - Day 10: Sunday, October 20

Slept in, breakfast in hotel. Back roads thru Pennsylvania, Delaware Water Gap, upstate New York, and across Vermont to Brattleboro - Hampton Inn - nice but $$. Boy asked me to check him for ticks in Saugerties, NY McDonalds. Shopping at Wal-Mart, dinner at Pub 99, good. Hot tub, couple from NY. Nice day, but foliage only fair.

Fall Roadtrip - 2014

Sep 1, 2011 - Brattleboro, VT

Today there are pictures to post. We drove south into Brattleboro for lunch and to look around. Our first chore was to find a Walgreen's to get prescriptions refilled. Then, we found a parking deck downtown and went to Kipling's Restaurant and Pub. Rudyard Kipling lived here for 4 years. He wrote Jungle Book and Captains Courageous while he lived here. The pub was small but very nice. We were the only dining customers for a while. Two "regulars" were sitting at the bar, nursing beers. One of them lives in senior citizen housing. He had been...

Aug 31, 2011 - Brattleboro, VT

We talked to the campground in New Lyme, CT, this a.m. and found out that they do not have electricity and will probably not have it until Friday. The manager told us he would refund our depost and we started looking for someplace to be for tonight and tomorrow night. We decided on the KOA in Brattleboro, Vermont. John identified a road that would allow us to avoid the construction we had heard about on I91. But, based on our previous day's experience, we opted to stay on the expressways as much as possible. We drove north from Copake on...

Sep 20, 2010 - Homeward Bound

Well, as much as we’d like to stick around New Hampshire, we had to start our migration south this morning. Usually, I’m jumping up and down ready to go, but not today. I was a little sad to leave this wonderful place. I’m sure I wouldn’t feel that way with the coming of the first snowflakes, but for the two months we’ve been here, it has been fabulous. I think in all this time I have failed to mention our campground. We stayed about 5 miles east of Gorham in Timberland Camping Area. Dave and Laurie, our hosts, do a fantastic job making...

Scratchin' the Itch

Jul 26, 2010 - Brattleboro, VT to Freeport, Maine

We were going to to to a Maple Syrup Farm, but it was closed so we headed on down the road to Freeport, Maine. It is a whole city of outlet stores. Tried to stop and get some new shoes, but the stores didn't open till 10 AM. So off we went again. We stopped at Bar Harbor, Maine. Stayed at the Bar Harbor Campground. After we set up we went to the Acadia National Park and drove to the top of Mt Cadillac, named after an explorer not the car. You could see 360 degrees, all the surrounding area. The mountain was solid granite. We had a lobster...

Charmur's Trip 2010

Jul 25, 2010 - Leaving Plymouth to Brattleboro, VT

We left Plymouth this AM about 10:45, kinda late. I worked on labeling my photos and we made good time, except when we changed highways outside of Leomister,MA. Rude drivers wouldn't let us change lanes and had to drive 7 miles before getting back on at the same place. Stopped for fuel and headed back down the road. We are staying at Brattleboro KOA, real nice place. Walked to "Walker's Farm" for sweet corn, cukes, watermelon, plums and peaches. Beautiful nursery/farm. Tomorrow we are going to a Maple Syrup Farm. They won't be making any...

Charmur's Trip 2010

Sep 28, 2009 - To Southern Vermont

It rained pretty steadily overnight but we were glad to awake to a dry morning. It’s never much fun to disconnect utilities and hook up the car in the rain. Joe likes to do some of that prep the day before we leave. With one last check on email, it was time to stow the satellite dish…oh, oh, dish won’t stow with the stow command from the computer. Joe suspected debris and pine needles were the culprits so a couple of trips to the roof and the dish was down. We were ready to go. We had a short ride, 150 miles roughly to southern Vermont. So...
