Sep 29, 2018 - Conway Scenic Railroad Trip

A two hour drive took us to Conway, NH. I had made these reservations in March. The train departed shortly after 11, and we returned about 4:45. For us, it was a great way to experience the White Mountains. The foliage was not at its peak. Others were saying it'd be another week. It was lovely though. We fortunately had seats on the side of the train with the greatest view. At Crawford's Notch there was a one hour layover during which passengers were allowed to walk around the area. From there, the train continued north a few miles to...

Sep 28, 2018 - Castle in the Clouds

Today was an all day event, and it was enjoyable. It was likely an hour or more to reach the entrance from where we're staying. It was drizzling when we departed the campground. After reaching the entry booth, a narrow, winding road climbed in elevation. We parked at the Pebble Rock and Waterfall parking area. We spent about an hour or so hiking a loop that was dreadful on one side and beautiful on the other. A series of waterfalls were on one side of the trail. The other only climbed up a hill through woods. Vehicles are not allowed at the...

Nearly every type of RV is represented: several Class As, three Class Bs, one class C, three travel trailers, one truck camper, and my fifth wheel. The only type missing...

Jul 16, 2011 - 16th July - Bridgewater/Bristol, NH

16-17th July - Newfound RV Park, Bridgewater/Bristol, New Hampshire. Newfound RV Park is situated just a few miles from Wellington State Park , which is on Newfound Lake, one of the cleanest inland lakes in the United States. This spring fed lake is the Jewel of the lakes region and is 7 miles long and has 22 miles of shore line. We loved it here. The RV park was almost empty when we arrived - hooray! As usual we hooked up before off loading our bikes and setting off to explore. The area is beautiful but very residential and we found it...
