Aug 8, 2019 - Woodford, Vermont

Marge and Ross left the Pumpkin Patch RV Park early Wednesday morning. They routed southbound on Interstate 95 and 295 to south of Portland where they took US 202 and headed east. They were headed to New Hampshire and the Mile Away Campground in the town of Henniker, New Hampshire. It was a long day because after leaving the interstate highways and they drove on two lane winding state and US roads. There were numerous small towns and some very steep hills. The roads were in fair condition but their average speeds dropped significantly from...

Sep 18, 2015 - Vacation with Mom

My last day of volunteering at Upper Delaware for this season was on Sept. 13 so I headed for Camping World in Kingston to have my big awning replaced (dry rot - can you believe it after only 4 years of use?) and the microwave secured in its cubby hole. The awning didn't get there in time, so I left it there and stayed with Mom at her house. Everything was set to go by the 17th and we made it to a campground outside of Concord, NH. We traveled the byways so it took all day to go 200 miles. That's ok - why hurry? I was pleasantly surprised...

Jun 7, 2015 - Family

Although I travel alone, that's no reason to be alone. One of the wonderful aspects of travel is the ability to see friends and family that live far away. Today, I visited with my Aunt and Uncle. Although I see them at family gatherings, like weddings and funerals, I had never been to their house. I parked my RV at a nearby park and they came to see my truck and RV. They've enjoyed vacation camping for decades. Starting with tent camping, they moved up to a pop-up, and now have a fifth wheel. We enjoyed comparing their fifth wheel with...

Yesterday we drove about 20 miles to the Sunapee area. Everything around there is named Sunapee--the town, the lake, the mountain, the state park, the cruise boat...It was a cool, beautiful day.

Jul 24, 2013 - Sattuma Concert in Henniker

The rain stopped and the sun came out. We had a clear, cool evening for the Henniker Tuesday Night Concert this week. Sattuma, a Karelian Folk Band, performed. Between the four band members, they play 20 instruments. We didn't see them all, but they played a variety including bagpipes, flute, clarinet, recorder, accordion and violins. It was an interesting variety of music, and the program was very well attended. We're leaving Henniker, NH enroute to Maine on Sunday.

Jul 23, 2013 - Trips to Wolfeboro, Portsmouth and Newburyport, MA

These are day trips from our Henniker, NH location. I'm catching up since our wi-fi device from Verizon quit, and we ended up getting a new phone as well. We drove into Concord, NH for that. All our contact information is the same. Wolfeboro, NH is about an hour's drive north of here. It has quite a history as a summer vacation resort town. We planned to take a cruise on the Winnipesaukee Belle which would have been a quiet two-hour cruise around the lake on an old paddle wheeler boat. Unfortunately we waited for nearly an hour only to...

Jul 18, 2013 - Fun Day in Contoocook, NH

Yesterday we drove to Contoocook, New Hampshire at the suggestion of people we've met here. We wanted to see the town and have lunch at the Covered Bridge Restaurant they recommended. The restaurant is located beside the Contoocook River. The covered bridge is actually a railroad bridge and the Contoocook River Bridge is between the two. We had a nice lunch and were outside taking photos. I had just taken one of Bill at the covered bridge when this young man stopped his passing car, rolled down the window and asked if we wanted him to take...

Jul 16, 2013 - Arrived in Henniker, New Hampshire

We left Vermont on Monday and relocated to Henniker, New Hampshire for two weeks. Before leaving Vermont we had a chance to visit Robert Frost's Stone House Museum. The first floor of his home is full of photos, furniture and other personal items along with his poetry that was written there and anecdotes about his life and work. We also took a day drive over to Wilmington, Vermont. It's a pretty little town built along a river. Huge beautiful baskets and planters of flowers made the town very attractive. It was also fun to see a memorial to...

Jan 4, 2008 - Friday Afternoon - Mike Huckabee Rally in Henniker

After lunch at a great sub shop near the St. Anselm campus, we drove on to New England College in Henniker NH, about half-an-hour away. NEC is a small college, founded in 1947 and located in a small, out-of-the-way town. We were at NEC to attend a Mike Huckabee rally in the college gymnasium. We arrived about an hour before the scheduled opening-of-the-doors at 3:15. Standing outside, we met a retired couple from the Dartmouth area (Roger and Chris Berger); Roger is a Colgate graduate and Chris is the daughter of a long-time Colgate physics...
