Jul 12, 2019 - Hiking

Mary had stopped at a little farmers market nearby her house & picked up some fresh eggs & sausage for breakfast. I’m not really a big sausage eater as sometimes it’s too spicy or greasy but this wasn’t & was very good! The day started out rainy but cleared up enough for us to take a hike at a near by trail. Sweet Mark is allergic to dogs so Rupert stayed in the bus most of the time, but Mark put a blanket in the back of his Subaru Ascent so Rupert could go along for our hike. Rupert was very appreciative! We met others along the hike with...

Rupert's Travels

Jul 11, 2019 - Thanks for the memories

Paul & I are so grateful for Glenn & Sally’s wonderful hospitality. They welcomed us with open arms & made us feel like this little cabin on the lake was also our home away from home, showing us around the beautiful state of Maine. We were able to have sewer hook up & electricity while parked here. & we just fit between the trees! Our next stop is Manchester, VT. to visit with Mark & Mary Wiley one of Aunt Thelma’s sons who have a second home there. We arrived about 5:30 pm & pulled into Mark’s neighbors business as he suggested we do...

Rupert's Travels

Sep 11, 2011 - Hildene

We, along with the rest of the country, watched the ceremonies this morning honoring the heroes of 9/11. So moving - so sad. Next week when I am in Manhattan I plan to revisit Ground Zero ( I was there in Dec. 2001) and tour the Tribute Museum. It was a perfect day for a drive in the country and , to lighten our hearts, we decided to go to Manchester, Vermont and visit Hildene, Robert Todd Lincoln's home. He was the only child of Abe and Mary to survive to adulthood. He had traveled to this part of the country with his mother and brother,...

Sep 30, 2010 - Joys and disappointments

We had a gorgeous, sunny day yesterday to drive into Vermont after staying at a very small campground in Central Bridge, NY. Finally we have a good wifi connection here. 3 days ago, our last full day in the Finger Lakes area of NY, we drove back to Ithica for a trip around Lake Cayuga, and to try and locate an especially picturesque village Linda remembered from our trip across the top end of the Finger Lakes about 3 years ago. We had written down the name of the village, but then forgotten were we wrote it! (Old age, or disorganization?...

Sep 15, 2010 - Manchester, VT

From Pine Hollow Campground, in Pownal, in the very southwest corner of Vermont. The first direction that we headed for sightseeing from Pownal was north, on VT 7A. It was marked on several maps as a scenic highway & held-up to its claims. It gave us a good taste of this area, with a multitude of old cemeteries; roadside motels, some of which are closed but most of which are still open for business; lots of old churches; the architecture in homes & other buildings that typify the 1800’s & early 1900’; the towns frequently have...

We're Wingin' It

Oct 22, 2009 - From Vermont to New York to Massachusetts

First stop for the day was Hilldene, the mansion built by Abraham Lincoln's only son who survived to manhood. Lincoln was the president of the Pullman Railroad Car company and very rich, and had filled federal cabinet and committee posts as well. He built this beautiful home overlooking a valley to be next to an old friend, and the last of his descendants only in the 1970s. It of course is now a museum, and featured a beautiful Aeolian pipe organ, which one of the volunteers played (using the old player rolls now digitally operated). It...

May 24, 2007 - We drove to Vermont today. What a beautiful drive!

We drove into Vermont today and did all of the tourist things. It was a beautiful day with temps in the low 80's. The secenary was just spectacular. It's amazing how much different their forests are, mostly maples around here, compared to our pine and fir trees of the pacific northwest. We bought some Vermont sharp cheese which is much softer than the cheddar cheese we're used to. They gave us some penuche, some kind of maple fudge. Oh so good and oh so rich! We did a couple geocaches on the way to break up the trip. One was at Old Fort...
