Aug 29, 2017 - White Mountain adventures

I arrived at Apple Hill Campground on the afternoon of the 27th and then explored the area for two days, finding letterboxes in the process. I did not go back up Mt. Washington because I did that years ago. I did go back to the site where we used to be able to see the Old Man in the Mountain. Those pictures are on my phone, and when I figure out how to get them to my computer, I will post them here. There is a Memorial Plaza now with 7 steel "profilers". When you stand at a certain spot according to your height and look at the profiler in...

Sep 4, 2013 - White Mountains of New Hampshire

We left Moody Beach in the rain heading north and west, but only a few miles up the road the sun was shining. The drive of 167 miles was easy, with Rebecca driving the first half. This stop amounts to our 44 state and counting! We found the Apple Hill Campground, we're staying under Passport America membership, in the country outside the town of Bethlehem. Robert, the owner, was very gracious in accepting our forwarded mail and later even running down errant packages that were momentarily lost! As the name implies, there are apple trees, a...

Sep 27, 2012 - Experiencing all the little places in the Franconia Notch

September 27, 2012-Adventure Caravans is taking us to breakfast at Polly’s Pancake House. We did a ride-share with Ernie and Sheila to have pancakes. This is a visit to every little quaint place in the Franconia Notch. We started with Polly’s Pancake House, then we checked out the Sugar Hill Sampler, the Harmon’s Country Store, the General Store in Bath, then we took a tour of the Rocks Christmas Tree farm and maple sugar facility. When we finished all of these planned locations, we ended up having a late lunch at the Littleton Diner in...

Sep 26, 2012 - Onward to the Franconia Notch

September 26, 2012-Today is a short travel day. We go only 67 miles to Twin Mountain/Littleton. So we had an exercise in leisurely travel today. We started out with a drive along the river with lots of turnouts and scenic vistas. Then just about everybody stopped at WalMart in Berlin, NH for lunch and to just waste some time. While we were in Walmart Susan and I ran into Sean and Pat, the Austin couple we met at Dixville Notch, again doing some shopping for their next jaunt. We pulled into Beech Hill RV park. We tried really hard to back...

Sep 21, 2010 - Bethlehem, New Hampshire

September 20th - Freeport, Maine T’was a lovely day, sunny & pleasant, warm enough for me to go without a jacket & warm enough for Allan to only need one layer of fleece! You have heard of “shop til you drop”. Well, we shopped till I dropped! This is not an outlet mall. It is a street that had L.L. Bean situated here, the shoppers attracted other high end stores to open outlets. So, it is a quaint New England street with side streets & more stores/shops. The McDonalds is not to be believed. I took a picture of the building 2 yrs ago when we...

Jul 18, 2010 - Day 128 - Mt. Washington and an alarming afternoon

I’ll remember this day…but not for a reason you’d ever guess! First, we were going to drive my truck to the top of Mt Washington, but they don’t allow duallies due to the narrow road. We chose not to take the cog railroad due to the time required as we were HOPING to get some sightseeing in this afternoon, so we decided to take the shuttle to the top. Mt. Washington is the highest mountain (at under 7000’!) east of the Rockies. However, (and it’s a big however) it is still quite the mountain! The strongest wind recorded by man was on the...

Jul 17, 2010 - Day 127 - STATE #30 - NEW HAMPSHIRE

For a short drive day mileage-wise, it sure took a long time! Many little stops along the way and country roads made our 220 mile day a six hour drive. Naturally we also had to drive slowly in case a big bull moose jumped out of the woods hoping to get his picture taken. It was a wonderful drive. We were on less traveled country roads and they were in much better shape than the main road to Moosehead. Beautiful scenery, charming towns and real mountains appeared as soon as we entered New Hampshire! The White Mountains they are, and so named...
