Jun 13, 2015 - Serendipity

Sometimes it's the unexpected that is the most interesting. I had intentionally planned this week to be "down" time. Nothing planned; no particular sights to view. After setting up my RV in my site, I wandered the camp chatting with neighbors as has become my routine. At one camp site, the couple asked if I was here to see the "Dog Agility Trials". The what? I suspect you've seen them on TV. The owners walk their dogs through an "agility" course where the dogs must go over, under or through the obstacles. Unbeknownst to me, the local club...

Oct 13, 2011 - Last few days -Dummerston

Tuesday We covered a lot of miles today travelling into New Hampshire as we are not far from the State line. First stop was Chesterfield Gorge only 1.5 mile walk along the river with small waterfalls, crunching along on the deep paths of fallen leaves, so many different colours, so different to back home. The Fall is so colourful here the orange/reds are amazing. Then onto Ashuelot where we drove over a covered bridge there are so many in the area, due to the heavy snowfall these were built years ago to stop the bridges collapsing due to...

Oct 7, 2008 - Freeport, ME to Dummerston, VT

We didn’t pull out until 11:00 a.m. today as I was working on an assignment (wanted to take advantage of the excellent wifi connection here). Once we got on our way, the drive was beautiful with sun all day and temperatures rising to the upper teens (Celsius). We drove down I95/295 to just past Portland, Maine which was four and six lane all the way. Then we headed west on highways 4 and 9 more or less straight over to Vermont. These were secondary highways so a little slower going but very scenic. We saw lots of antique stores and farm...
