Jul 14, 2012 - New Hampshire

We left Bangor and traveled west on Highway 2. The first 150 miles were very rough, but then it smoothed out and the rest of Maine was quite a nice drive. We passed at least 50 garage or yard sales and I tried to talk Nancy into stopping, but she wouldn’t do it. We did stop at one little town that had a flea market. I think it was a retired biker’s town, because they had mostly leather and weird whatnots. They did have a mural on one of the buildings, so I had to get a picture of that! It was painted by a local artist and represented...

Barb's Retirement

Oct 3, 2010 - Country festival

Finally, we woke to sunshine today. Before heading out to New Hampshire we took in a little country fesvial in the small community of Danville, Vt. We saw them setting up for it as we headed to our campground last night. It was obviously the event of the fall for this area and everyone in town (plus some) showed up! It was the best festival we have ever been to - it may not have the high end art, but more than made up for that in the small town charm, friendliness and food you can't even imagine! We met the nicest basket maker and her...

Sep 15, 2010 - NE Trip continues

After leaving Maine we started acccross NH,which is also a beautiful state. We found a campground on a mountain side and decided to stay a couple of days and explore the area. The state reminded us of Maine a lot,but without the coast. The nights at our campsite were quiet and relaxing. Also noticed how quickly it would get dark in the mountains. Time to hitch up the Rv and head on to vermont. See ya down the road !

Sep 4, 2010 - Return to the USA

Greetings, We are now in New Hampshire by the White Mountain National Forest. It is 800,000 acres of heavy forest extending into western Maine with outstanding scenery. There is over 100 falls and numerous covered bridges by the roadside or a short hike. This is a very popular area year round- lots of summer outdoor activites and ski slopes everywhere for the winter. We could not begin to see all the waterfalls, so we visited the most popular ones. Falling waters trail was a 11/2 mile hike that brings you past 3 water falls . Diana’s...

Jul 29, 2010 - Gorham, New Hampshire

Well, we are still a little sore from our trek up Mt Adams, so we didn’t want to put on heavy boots and climb over rocks today. Neither did we want to sit in the house. Soooo, we drove over to the small town of Berlin to see what it was all about. Berlin has a population of a few thousand more than Gorham and I was hoping for a large supermarket and a historic downtown. I was very disappointed. Of all the small towns we’ve seen in our travels around America, I don’t believe I’ve seen one as depressing as Berlin. Every building and nearly...

Scratchin' the Itch

Sep 16, 2009 - Weekend in the White Mountains

This morning we moved west once again, traveling around 140 miles from Bangor to a little town just across the New Hampshire border near Berlin. Our stay in Bangor was uneventful. The lock repairman never did call us to schedule an appointment. I guess he was just too busy for our business. So we will wait as long as we can use the deadbolt. -- We traveled today on Highway 2 across Maine. The highway is in extremely poor shape near Bangor, with potholes and dips that reminded us of our trip through Alaska. We were warned that it would be...

Well Today we drove from Orford New Hampshire to Portland Maine. Via Bath NH, Littleton NH, Lincoln NH, The Kancamagus hwy, Conway NH, Portland ME. What a drive. Even more Challenging with a steady rain. Still worth every minute. Thanks to Carol Rayburn, who spent a lot not time helping us map it out. We just got back from dinner. We ate at The Clambake in Pine Point. That's just east of Old orchard beach. It was a different kind of place, but very good. We had Maine lobster and clam chowder. MMMMM! Still raining, must be bed time. A Day...

Oct 8, 2002 - New Hampshire via Vermont

We're off to New Hampshire -- through the mountains, and all the Fall foliage. The eyes can only absorb so much over many days. We had a lot of rain, and moments of beautiful sunshine. The patchwork quilt of colors from scarlet to burgundy, from sunshine yellow to brilliant orange, from dark umber to light tan, from mint green to dark forest green made for an afternoon of mouth gaping views The white bark of the birch trees lined the quilt with random threads amongst the color. Nothing in the west comes anywhere close to these...
