Oct 7, 2015 - Shelburne New Hampshire

Days 108-110 (October 4th through October 7th) Shelburne, NH We had a nice clear day for the 144 mile trip from Bangor to our next stop at Shelburne near the eastern border of New Hampshire (Shelburne is a small community about 5 miles east of the town of Gorham). About 90 miles from Bangor the highway, US 2, enters the valley of the Androscoggin River near Dixfield, Maine and parallels the course of the river into the foothills of the White Mountains and on into New Hampshire. Color was spotty. We noted signs for fresh apple cider as we...

Sep 27, 2015 - Hunt for gray phone delays trip

While at lunch yesterday, I noticed I didn't have my phone with me so I thought I left it home after charging it the night before. I didn't leave it home and couldn't find it anywhere. The owner of the campground called my phone several times hoping we would hear it ring but alas, no good luck. So, this morning I decided it was worth it to drive up 20 miles to the only place we stopped before Jackman - Rockwood boat launch. We searched and retraced steps and couldn't find it. Mom found a really nice pair of binoculars though! I had to call...

Sep 23, 2015 - Shelburne NH

After a wrong turn and taking the house down about 7 miles of unpaved roads and across a couple bridges that were not designed for 32,000 pounds of moving house, we arrived at the Timberland Campground in Shelburne, NH without any visible damage. I don't know where it all went so horribly wrong, but driver error was the obvious culprit. My roommate did offer words of encouragement and the occasional giggle to keep me from jumping out the window when things looked their bleakest and I appreciate that. And I know the locals got a good laugh...

Aug 29, 2013 - Cog Train & Moose Tour

We left Maine Sunday morning for Shelburne, New Hampshire. On Monday morning we drove to Mount Washington and took the historic cog train to the summit. It was so foggy on top you could hardly see to walk from the train to the summit building. We checked out the museum and admired the photos from sunnier days during our hour on top. It reminded us of a similar visit to the top of Pikes Peak. At least this time we didn't have to do the driving back down! One of the reasons Mount Washington is known for the worst weather is the high winds...

Aug 27, 2012 - Bumping our way across Maine ***White Birches RV Park, Shelburne, NHampshire

We are spending the night in New Hampshire. We have bumped our way across Maine on Highway 1 and then Highway 2 into New Hampshire. The highway paralleled beautiful rivers a great deal of the way. The small villages are adorable, filled with huge, old two-story houses. We are just north of Mt. Washington, but the scenic road to the summit is closed. We will probably drive to Mt. Washington in the morning as check out here is 12 noon. Have a great evening. ***White Birches RV Park, Shelbourne, New Hampshire; Passport America park; ok for one...

Oct 3, 2011 - Timberland RV Park

Went to place on the way to New Hampshire that they make their own Maple syrup. It comes in 4 grades with different concentrations. It take about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. Went on the Conway Railroad line out of Conway New Hampshire. "The "Gertrude Emma" is a beautifully restored 1898 Pullman Parlor Observation Car on the Valley Trains"

Aug 17, 2011 - Moosehead Lake.....Maine

We debated for awhile on whether to take the Airstream to Moosehead Lake or just make a day trip of it. Well, we were only 70 miles from the southern end of the lake and the town of Greenville, ME. So the day trip won out. It was a nice drive up except for about 20 miles of a small back road. It was really rough. At one point along the drive up we think we could see Katahdin....the mountain where the Appalachian Trail ends. We also stopped at the Appalachian Trail, 112 miles from the terminus, and took a few steps on the trail.....we now...

Aug 15, 2011 - On the Road Again

After two weeks parked at the Pumpkin Patch RV Resort in Hermon, ME and exploring more areas of Maine it was time to hitchup and head out. So this morning, despite the rainy forcast we pulled out at 9 AM heading toward eastern New Hampshire and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It rain on us most of the way but never hard. We traveled 150 miles. We are parked at Timberland Campground near Shelburne, NH. Can't really tell you much about the campground since the weather was so bad when we arrived. We are parked on a shady, very level...

Sep 27, 2010 - White Mountains of New Hampshire

For the last 3 days we’ve been camped in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Mary has been feeling really bad the last 6 days with a cold, so we have been staying close to the trailer taking short drives and short walks through these beautiful mountains. We deviated from our original trip itinerary when we were in Maryland. We decided since fall was only a couple of weeks away and we were so close to the New England states why not take advantage of our close proximity and add a side trip to catch the fall colors. We started seeing the...

Aug 9, 2010 - Headed to the White Mountains

Long day today as we drove to New Hampshire. No pictures just alot of driving. We lost several hours grocery shopping at Walmart and chasing down prescriptions at a couple of Rite Aids in Bangor. The ride through central Maine was nice until the last 15 miles or so. Road construction along several stretches reduced the road surface to Alaskan-like packed gravel. We had to travel about 20-25mph. I’m glad there wasn’t much traffic to throw up stones. I’m not sure the insurance company would replace another windshield so soon. We pulled into...

Oct 1, 2009 - Goodbye Canada

October 1 – Thursday It was a travel day today as we left Saint John and headed toward Maine, USA. We said good bye to our homeland of Canada at St Stephen, NB and crossed into USA – the border crossing went very smoothly for our caravan of 4 from BC although they did have to check each RV out. It was a long day as we travelled 522 kilometers through Maine and checking into a Good Sam campground at Shelburne, New Hampshire. The drive was gorgeous with many WOW moments as we enjoyed the vibrant colors of the trees and scenery. God certainly...

Oct 3, 2008 - back in new hampshire

We actually got up early today and were on the road by 9:30 on the way to see some fall foliage. We left Sagamore and hit I-495 and then I-93 north. We knew we were headed back to upstate New Hampshire so Skip just punched in Shelburne, where we had been around the first of September, and let the GPS lead us. Big mistake. We did not realize that our route would be through the middle of Boston until it was too late to exit. Skip was worried about driving Baby in the downtown traffic, and he got more uptight the closer we got to Boston. Then...
