Jul 23, 2015 - Little River State Park

We woke up to a cool 60 degrees and after reading about the history hike here in the park, decided to stay and do it. We drove into Waterbury to find a 4 pk of Alchemist Heady Topper beer which is a top rated beer made here. Apparently they are a prize to find and buy as they limited us to one 4 pk. Back to the campground and up the mtn to see an old settlement from the early 1800s complete with stone walls, foundations and cemeteries. Found chanterelles and oyster mushrooms for supper.Very interesting hike! We hiked a total of 4.1 miles-...

Jul 22, 2015 - Vermont cheese and berries

We drove through the White Rocks rec area on a backwoods forest road so we could reach scenic route 100 heading north through vt. Stopped at the Vermont country store in Weston and then on to Crowley Cheese. They had samples of about 10 cheeses which of course got us to buy some extra sharp and a smoked garlic. Onward towards Waterbury but then we saw an organic berry farm. Fresh raspberries and blueberries made it back to the car. We finally made it to Little River SP near Waterbury and found chanterelles near our site.On our way to find...

Jul 13, 2014 - Green Mountain Coffee

Started the day with the Full-timer Chapter for our first stop of the day at the Green Mountain Coffee. They not only sell coffee, but they sell tea and souvenirs. They also had a live band playing on their front porch. The Green Mountain Coffee Visitor's Center is not a destination location, but a great place to grab a smooth cup of freshly roasted coffee (or a cup of iced tea). The cafe staff was pleasant and very helpful. The self-guided tour was only about 30 feet long. I would not recommend that tour even if you are a coffee...

Aug 26, 2013 - Waterbury, Vermont

August 26, 2013 Waterbury, Vermont Today we traveled 234 miles from Hermon, Maine to Waterbury, Vermont on US-2, a secondary 2 lane road. Before we left town we stopped for fuel; diesel was $3.979/gallon. The road was mostly good with a few spots that are in need of repair. The road winds its way through small towns in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont that were established in the 1780s and across the Appalachian mountains. The trees are just starting to hint at changing color, but unfortunately they don’t show up in the pictures. There was...

Jul 12, 2012 - Ice Cream & Dinner Cruises

Today we headed to Waterbury, VT to the Ben and Jerry Ice Cream factory tour. Do you notice we seem to be eating our way through Vermont? Again a great tour and got to have a super sample at the end. We went back into Waterbury and found a restaurant for lunch. I'm enjoying trying the local beers at lunch time. After lunch we headed back to the RV to do rest some before our dinner cruise. The cruise was wonderful. Perfect night. Great food and music. The one thing Echo and I wanted from this cruise was a perfect sunset. We truly got our...

Sep 23, 2010 - Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream

From Barrewood Campground, a couple of miles west of Westfield, ten miles south of the Canadian border, halfway across the state of Vermont. Several people & our own taste buds had recommended that we visit the Ben & Jerry’s factory, so we headed about 50 miles south from here to the town of Waterbury. Along the way we passed through the town of Stowe, the home of the Trapp Family Resort, which was once the private homestead of the family whose life-story is told in the movie the “Sound of Music”. They built this resort after leaving...

We're Wingin' It

Jul 20, 2010 - Ben & Jerry Ice Cream Factory, VT

Today we continued on US 2 continuing south west. "I scream for ice cream!" We made a stop at Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory in Waterbury, VT for a factory tour and to sample some ice cream. We sampled one of their new flavors…milk and cookies. It was very good! Gosh!! I didn’t realize that there were so many flavors of ice cream. They actually have a dept. that creates, kitchen-tests, and gives these various flavors very unique names. They call these flavors…Euphoric! We have seen numerous Moose Crossing warning signs along the highway...

Jul 12, 2010 - Waterbury VT

Arriving on the 13th. Little River State Park. No hook ups. We've got our generator. The only other dry camping we've done was at Merritt. We'll see how it goes. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCOTT-13TH AND JIM HANSEN-14TH Dry camping went well. This is a great place. Michigan could take lessons on site size etc. It was huge and well shaded---VT is beautiful and tons of trees and mountains. I could summer here every year. We had a chipmunk who became a regular visitor. And what a surprise Mel got when he opened a dumpster---racoon. If you don't have a...

Jun 29, 2009 - Visiting Ben and Jerry

There are two things that I think of when I think of Vermont . . . ok, maybe, three things: maple syrup, covered bridges, AND Ben & Jerry's. When I told my sis Kat that we were going to go see Ben & Jerry's today, she was trying to remember what branch of the family they were in and I told her, no, no. THE Ben & Jerry's!!! I have been friends with Ben & Jerry's for many, many years, so there is no way we are going to come to Vermont and not go see the Ben & Jerry's plant in Waterbury. The trouble is, Waterbury, Vermont, is about 70 miles...

Pretty Damn Nice!

May 28, 2009 - Waterbury, VT - Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory Tour

(Ron Writing) We’re beginning to understand why Vermont is such a beautifully green state – it hasn’t stopped raining since we got here! It rained during the night and today we had periods of heavy rain, light rain, and short breaks without rain. We decided we’d spend the dismal day doing a dismal chore – our laundry. Doing the laundry wouldn’t be so bad if we could use the same laundromat all the time or if all laundromats had machines that actually operated the same way as other laundromats. Finding and selecting a laundromat is a real...
