Jul 27, 2015 - Coleman sp

We heard about Moose Alley, the road (hwy 3) that runs north to Canada. There was another campground along the way but it wasn't on the water and the biting flies were out. We drove on up to the border and turned around to head on out. There are lakes all up there but no place to camp so we headed east to stay at Coleman sp. This is a great little campground on pond and there was only one other tenter in there. We sat on the picnic table and watched loons and later heard them throughout the night. Bill made a delicious meal of chanterelles...

Aug 21, 2013 - The North Woods of New Hampshire

Day 169 - 170 of The Big Trip On August 20, we had another 70-mile drive to take us into New Hampshire, just across the border into Colebrook. We wandered up and down and back and forth across Vermont, to the Connecticut River, which is the border. As we were headed north on Vermont 102, the GPS instructed us to take a right turn and we came upon a covered bridge, with a 3-ton limit and a 10.5 foot clearance - not quite big enough for us. It took the GPS a minute to recalculate and we found a very good bridge for crossing the river. We...

Sep 25, 2012 - Enjoying the Balsams and Dixville Notch

This resort was opened in 1866, right after the Civil War, and offered a beautiful summer retreat from the heat of the cities. Today it is closed and under renovation—they are planning to open next summer. The caretaker for the place told us we could wander around the grounds as long as we did not go near the buildings. So wander we...

Sep 24, 2012 - Back to the USA and Colebrook, NH

September 24, 2012—This was a short travel day to give us time to get back into the USA. We didn’t take the most direct route; instead we meandered around farm country to a pretty obscure entry point near Pittsburgh, New Hampshire. The border guard was friendly but efficient, and he went back to the coach to look around. Took a little longer than Canada entry, but not much. We pulled through and started looking for lunch. We found this little place along the road with good turnouts. The Happy Corner Cafe was just a little diner on the side...
