July 23

Travel day, 370 miles Harper's Ferry to Locust RV Park in Howes Cave, NY

Weather was heavy rain, light rain, misty rain, cloudy, did see a big shiny thing in the sky for about 10 minutes.

July 24

Weather was overcast all day.

We rested most of the morning before exploring the area. After lunch we visited the tourist site known as Howes Cave. To access the cave you take an elevator down 150 feet. I have been in a few caves so I was expecting stalactites and stalagmites, not this time. The cave was carved in sand stone by a running river, kind of like a Grand Canyon underground. The tour is 90 minutes and includes a boat ride. Then it was back to the camper to pick up Barb, and it was off to dinner. We ate at the Rubbin Butts BBQ . A bonus at the restaurant was it also was a craft brewery. I found their beers to be a little weak in flavor, but did try and like a whiskey porter.

Another travel day, 325 miles from Howes Cave, NY to Brunswick, Maine.

To get out of driving near NYC, NY and Boston you have to work your way north, that means you have to get off the express ways and drive on secondary roads. The reward is some fantastic scenery in Vermont and New Hampshire. You drive over the White Mountains, Also as a bonus the roads are much better.

We are camping at Whites Beach, It was a favorite swimming hole for Barb and Sheryl 50 years ago when they lived here. The girls said they remember it being much bigger, (they were smaller back then so everything looked bigger).
