May 2, 2019 - We made it happen! And the journey continues.

We have come full circle. We are back in New England where we left 18 years ago. It's beautiful, cold and wet. Thank God Mazey is back with us, forcing me out to walk in the cold. I am discovering the beauty outside in this weather which I totally missed 18 years ago. Charlotte was wonderful. We met with Don's Uncle John and Aunt Terri the first Friday there. It was an awesome reunion. We were showered by their hospitality and love. We actually saw them twice in Charlotte as we spent Saturday before Easter with John and Terri and three of...

Sep 23, 2018 - Woodstock, NH to Quechee Gorge, VT

September 23, 2018 Last night after dark we noticed a movie screen that had to have been at least 8 feet by 6 feet next to family tent behind us. They wanted to make sure the volume was not too loud! It truly was a sight to be seen. Awoke this morning to a picture-perfect NE fall day with sunshine and a crisp 45 degrees. (Overnight it dipped to 36 and our heater went on automatically.) We were toasty in our sleeping bag even though its rated only for 40 degrees. In NH our experience has been primarily the White Mountains which became a...

May 29, 2018 - Memorial Day Weekend.

Quechee VT this weekend. Running streams, covered bridges. My brothers place in Sunapee is about 30 minutes away. Saturday we made it to Sunapee around 11. Sat on the beach. The only one jumping in was my great nephew Aiden. At lunch my cousin Joe came with smoked fish he had caught on the way. By far the best food of the weekend. Spent the evening laughing. I found a new favorite beer made in Framingham MA,Jacks Abbey Blood Orange Wheat. Sunday was still cold and gloomy. Went to Woodstock VT with Carol and Ev. Hiked in the one National...

May 25, 2018 - Driving Vermont

Picture perfect weather for a drive through VT. After leaving a great campground in Pownal we headed to Bennington for diesel. I had the GPS set but found out the address was off. After missing a turn, I saw a old gas station I could pull around. I thought it was closed until Craig came to the coach and asked if I needed help. As it turned out, they were open, had diesel and it was less than the price of the place I was looking for! Cathy and I had a great conversation with Criag while the retro style pump filled the coach with fuel. He was...

Sep 25, 2015 - Another Gorge and Two Farms

We only had one and a half days in Quechee so we had to cram a lot in. It was a short trip, 123 miles, to Quechee so we arrived at the KOA around noon. After a quick lunch we rode into town and stopped at the Quechee Gorge Visitor Center to get info on the trail and decided to wait and do it today. We drove into Quechee which doesn’t seem to have a town center, at least we couldn’t find one; most of the businesses are strung along U.S. 4. We went on to Woodstock which bills itself as the “Most Beautiful Town in America” which could be...

Sep 23, 2013 - Days 15-16

Vermont finally! We left Lake Placid yesterday morning and drove lots of hours and few miles to a tiny town between Woodstock and White River Junction, Vermont. Roads in this part of the country tend to run north and south. If you want to go east or west, you do a lot of zigzagging around mountains and valleys to get back on another north-south road that's farther east or west. On the way here, we saw our first "Moose Crossing" signs and the first covered bridge. The promised cool front with clouds, some wind, and much colder temperatures...

New England 2013

Sep 22, 2013 - Did you hear that?!?

From New Hampshire it was a short drive over to Quechee, VT for a one night stand. But as we were leaving we heard this horrendous sound when we applied the brakes. We had had no problems with the brakes up to this point and knew we had heard this sound before but couldn’t figure out where. The brakes were working fine and the air pressure was where it should be, so we took it slow and did a lot of down shifting any time there was a hill. The trip was really not as frightening as this may sound, but was quite embarrassing when we pulled...

Aug 25, 2012 - Highland Games, Celtic Faire and Sheepdog Trials

Got humid again and was in the high 80's the day we went to the highland games and celtic faire. Highland games were lots of fun! The opening ceremony entailed nine pipe (bag) and drum bands marching onto the field playing their songs. Then each of the 41 clans and societies present were called out and raised their flag and yelled their cheer. Somewere outstanding and others funny. Loved the whole thing and the music was GREAT! We had some beer and listened to some lively celtic music in the big tent. We shared a meat pie and a meat...

Aug 24, 2012 - Cheese and maple syrup

Today we went from New Hampshire to Quechee (pronounced kweechee), Vermont. On the way we went to the Goodrich maple syrup farm. They have 1,000 acres of land with 10, 000 sugar maple trees. Oh my gosh. The young man there was from California and really missed the beach but loves his wife who he met in college and is one of the Goodrich daughters. We leaned how to make syrup. Really learned a lot. Did not know it came out of the trees like water or that now days they use a very specialized plastic tubing to run the sap from the trees to...

Oct 5, 2010 - A Castle, Maple Syrup & Marble Stone

This morning we woke to the smokey smell of last night's campfire. What a great feeling. We headed out today and made a few great stops. First we headed to the New England Maple Market. We met a bunch of visitors from Germany on a bus trip. What fun. We spent about 10 minutes talking with 5 or 6 of them, talking about our travels and living in a RV. On to the Vermont Marble Company, where they mine marble from around the country for everything from salt & pepper shakers to military tombstones, even the marble used for the Tomb of the...

Sep 24, 2010 - Quechee Gorge, VT

Arrived at Quechee State Park, just outside of White River Junction, right on the New Hampshire border, slightly south of the north/south midpoint of VT. A bit different setting for us, as we have no electric, water, sewer, cable TV, or wi-fi amenities here, so we are totally reliant on Phae's on-board water tanks, batteries, inverter, generator & propane tank. The satelite TV does not work because of the canopy of trees that we are sitting under & the squirrels are bombarding the top of Phae with the acorns from above, but otherwise a...
