Sep 22, 2016 - Lancaster, NH

Our RV neighbors suggested we visit Lancaster, 15 miles north. Settled in 1763 along the Connecticut River, Lancaster, it was once home to water driven mills, sawmills, potato starch and gristmills. Factories manufactured carriages, grand hotels brought wealthy tourists, granite was excavated and the town prospered. Tall white steeple churches line Main Street next to the colorful, vintage business district remain. However the current median individual income and family income are appreciably lower than the New Hampshire average. There are...

New England 2016

Jul 25, 2015 - New Hampshire White Mountains

After Maine we stopped for four days to explore the White Mountains area of New Hampshire. We stayed in a small town on the Vermont border (Lancaster). The town was pretty quiet, but we found a hopping town – North Conway, a ski resort town in the winter and swimming and fishing in the Saco River in the summer. The next time we are in the area, we will stay in this town. The White Mountains are just beautiful – very green with thick forests and lots of streams and creeks. We took a ride up the Auto Road to the top of Mount Washington...

Cat Nap Inn 2015

Sep 30, 2010 - Lake George, NY -- Vermont -- New Hampshire

I forgot to mention this New York oddity earlier, but one of my father’s favorite “brags” when out-of-state visitors came to New York for the first time was to take them to a fast food (hot dogs) place and buy them a “White Hot”. I don’t know if it’s still true, but at one time New York was the only place you could get a White Hot. Instead of beef, the hot dog is made of pork. Of course, I had to follow in my father’s footsteps and treat Julieann to a White Hot. She --- as most others – was pleasantly surprised and really liked the taste of...

2010 Travels

Aug 3, 2010 - Lancaster, New Hampshire

The rain started late yesterday afternoon, continued through the night and throughout most of today. What a great day to relax. Besides, things are getting pretty dry around here so the rain is welcome. On our agenda today was to visit the small community of Lancaster, NH. Since the rain was light and intermittent this morning, we decided to go with our plan. Lancaster is a border town--on the border with Vermont. We are only 5 miles from the Maine state line, but it is still just a short 30 miles over to Lancaster along US 2. We drove...

Scratchin' the Itch

Jul 31, 2010 - Mountain Lake Campground, Lancaster, NH

For the second time in the last couple weeks, I got up, started the coffee, sat down at the computer and realized when I glanced at the time in the lower right corner of the screen that it was actually an hour earlier than I thought it was. For some reason the time on the clock in the bedroom mysteriously changes. The clock said 8:00 when I woke up, but it was really only 7:00. The first time this happened I had already showered and gotten dressed before I realized what time it was. This time, I went back to bed. Today’s “issue” was that...

Jul 30, 2010 - Mountain Lake Campground, Lancaster, NH

I slept in until 9:00 this morning! It was SOOO nice and comfy sleeping with extra blankets and smelling the clean, clear, cool (COLD) mountain air. Far cry from the 80s and 90s we’ve encountered so far on the trip. I decided I’d make pancakes for breakfast. Guess I won’t win any camping-chef-of-the-year awards. After burning them in the pan, setting off the LP gas alarm (LOUD) and filling the RV with smoke while I scrambled to figure out how to turn on the overhead fan, I came up with the delectable plate of pancakes pictured in the...

Jul 29, 2010 - Apple Island Resort, South Hero, VT to Mountain Lake Campground, Lancaster, NH

I guess Dan was feeling out of sorts because he hadn’t had anything to fix for a few days, so he broke the shower/tub transfer knob when he took a shower this morning – something new to fix when we get to our next destination. I went over to the Love Shack to talk to the Goodmans about which route they were going to take to Mountain Lake Campground, and Dan took the attached unflattering photo of what he saw while I was talking with them. He told me I had to include this picture. We departed Apple Island Resort at 11:35am, about a half...

Jul 1, 2008 - White Mountains, New Hampshire

From Maine we went to New Hampshire to the White Mountains . Drive was without any incidents and we arrived safely at Mountain Lake Campground . Friendly owners and a very nice and clean campground in the woods and on a lake. We stayed here over July 4th and they even provided an incredibly nice firework. From here we made some tours to Santa's Village , Six Gun City and Mount Washington. If you have kids, Santa's Village and Six Guns will be certainly something they'll enjoy, however, just for adults its not worth the money. Mount...

Jun 29, 2008 - Lancaster, New Hampshire

Sonntag, 29.6.2008 Weiterfahrt nach Lancaster im Staate New Hampshire. Eigentlich wollten wir hier nur bis Mittwoch bleiben, aber der Campingplatz ist sehr idyllisch mit kleinem Badesee auf dem man auch Paddelboot fahren kann und auch schwimmen erlaubt ist. Also haben wir uns kurzerhand entschieden mal eine volle Woche an einem Platz zu verbringen. In dieser Zeit ist es mir nun auch gelungen, endlich die deutsche Version von unserem Reise-Tagebuch ins Internet zu packen. Ausserdem war ich mutig und habe mir mal in diesem Dorf die Haare...

Unser America Trip

May 28, 2008 - Lancaster, New Hampshire

Wednesday May 28…10:30pm Knock, knock, knock…was the sound we heard at 6:45am this morning! And of course Whiskey the guard dog came to attention and began barking furiously. Ruth got up and answered the door. This is the first time ever we’ve had the cops banging on the door. It turns out the groundskeeping crew at the University had called the police on us! Not sure why they didn’t just come over and talk to us themselves, but at least they are vigilant, I suppose. The officer said he ran our license plate earlier, and it checked out...
