Aug 18, 2017 - Space Junk and Tires - August 7

Driving to Concord, New Hampshire was quick and much like going to grandma's house. "Over the rivers and through the woods." Tires were still a priority and we located a Ford dealer who had the right size. Yes, we tried other places that sold tires for less but no one had the 22" we needed. The appointment was for 2:15 the next day. Another worry off my husband's list. I am becoming concerned that his hearing is getting worse or his ability to listen has greatly deminished. The next day we went to the Mc Affie Planatarium, named after...

Jun 4, 2013 - Vermont

Heading on east checking out things in VT after spending the night here I have added another state to my slept in states list. Took a tour of the Ben and Jerry ice cream plants real cool place,lol had a nice cup of ice cream, then on to a sugar house where they make maple syrup the old fashion way, checked out a winery and the Cabot's cheese plant. Drove through the smallest capital city in the US at Montpelier checked out the granite quarry at the Rock of Ages site before heading on into New Hampshire for the night and another state for my...

Aug 7, 2012 - Albany, NY to Concord, NH

We went through Troy, stopped at Brunswick, HD. We've been there before, nice dealership, but for one really wierd thing. It's the only one I've ever seen without a water fountain (if you're really thirsty, you have to put money in a machine to get a bottle of water). We would have made it to Maine probably today, but we stopped for a picture of the Vermont state line and discovered I had a flat tire. The bad news is that was a BRAND NEW tire I had put on before leaving Md and didn't have 500 miles on it. For you non-bikers, you don't...

Aug 3, 2012 - Another Capitol

Concord is the oldest state capitol building where the legislature uses its original chambers. This place is stark and old - the Secretary of State's office, where the candidates for N.H.'s "first in the nation" Presidential primary must come to register, is still not air conditioned ( most offices have window units). The reps and senators only meet six months out of the year ( obviously the cooler months) and get $200 plus mileage as compensation. The table and chairs in the Governor's reception room are original pieces. By far, this...

Jun 24, 2010 - Jimmy again damn

Talked to Judy this AM, wished her well ion her upcoming adventure. Flo/Judy/Louise leave for conga next weekend. Jun 25 at the track and all set up, bit of a cluster getting arranged, camping lots are the worst we have seen the whole trip on uneven ground. Hot as usual so got the bike out and cruised the area. Went to a shaker village. I thought Randi loaded a lot of rock for our little wall, they must have had an army to build some the walls down here. Drinks and supper with neighbors who seem like a party bunch, imagine at a Nascar race...

Nascar Adventure

May 30, 2010 - Concord, New Hampshire

5/30 – 5/31 A 122 mile drive (US6, US1A, I 95, US3, SR106, SR9) brought us to another Wal-Mart parking lot in Concord, New Hampshire. When we asked permission to stay at this Wal-Mart they told us that we could not stay longer than four days (it is quite unusual for Wal-Mart to tell us that we can stay longer than a night). While in Concord we walked around the small (36,000 population) town and then toured the Museum of New Hampshire History. The highlight of this museum was the display of a Concord Coach. These high line stagecoaches were...

Nov 23, 2009 - Getting ready for China

It all started about 15 years ago- my great friends Jon Stachelrodt and Jeff Lee and I pledging to each other that someday we would go to China to take cooking classes on how to prepare authentic Chinese cuisine. Now it's really going to happen and while we're sad that Jeff had to bow out due to an un-rescheduleable business seminar, we were lucky enough to recruit as our pinch hitter our very own professional chef - Stephen! On Nov 30 we fly to Hong Kong, take the water taxi direct from the Hong Kong airport to the Shenzhen airport on the...

Nov 15, 2009 - Just to let you know #2.Concord

We visited with John and Rosemary in Concord, finding them in good health. We were able to arrive there about noon yesterday so we were able to enjoy them for the afternoon, evening and have a fine breakfast with them before we left this morning. I rained before we arrived and didn't stop until after we left. Nice and warm through the night because I didn't forget the propane this year !!!! Love; Tom & Rita..........and HeyU.

Nov 3, 2009 - Shakedown - Day 5

Good Morning Everyone, Moose River Campground: Another freezing night. We unhooked the water hose and drained it before going to bed. I don’t have my outdoor thermometer set up yet but it is probably upper 20s right now. We had a nice day and a productive day yesterday. It was clear and hit 50 here – a beautiful Fall day! After a leisurely breakfast, we hit the stores again for more organizational items. Lunch out at Subway and we returned to Moose River and spent the afternoon working on the trailer. I caulked and sealed some areas around...

Oct 20, 2009 - From New Hampshire to Vermont

We drove into Vermont and headed towards it's capital, Montpelier. We are at a campsite nearby, and have all sorts of great plans for tomorrow - either there is more to see in Vermont or they just advertise it better, because we have a big list! Some of the things include historic big buildings, and some of them include great tasting goodies - more later...

Mar 31, 2009 - Day 1

Well, we're off on our 23rd RV trip. Headed to Calif, up the coast to Washington, back to Tetons and then on to the Lake by July 1 or so. If you want to see an abreviated Itinerary - you can click on "itinerary". Don't know how this will all work and how ambitious we'll be entering info - but we're giving it a try. Thanks for checking on us. We've pretty much concluded that every RV trip has at least one mishap - some bigger than others. Hopefully we got our big mishap over early this trip. You can see the results of a nice little old 85...

Sep 22, 2008 - Day 30

This morning in Augusta, Maine, we got a good start towards Concord, New Hampshire and made good time using the turnpike road this time. There was much less jarring along this route so I guess that is how they raise money for roads around here. I think they neglect the state routes and keep the turnpikes maintained so you are willing to pay to use the turnpikes. Always a conspiracy! Concord, New Hampshire has a small town atmosphere and it is interesting to be on the steps of the State House and see the legislators going up and down the...
