Yesterday was supposed to be a be a day of errands and chores, but instead I wound up running around. I started out at about 1030 to go to the post office and local farmers market. After I left the campground, I realized I didn't bring the oil samples that I wanted to mail so I had to turn around and go back t the campground to pick them up. On my way again, I needed to pick up some cash for the farmers market, but the only no-fee ATM within 10 miles didn't work so no farmers market.

Nov 1, 2010 - Tamworth, NY

Today was a beautiful sunny day. It was cool starting at 30 and rising to low 40’s. I started the day by grabbing a geo-cache and then headed up to Tamworth, NH. The Remick Coutry Doctor Museum and Farm are there. I had a one on one tour with the tour guide as I was the only one there. We toured both houses and the farm buildings talking about the history of the farm and buildings. Great great Grandfather Enoch Remick built the farm. Then his son a Dr. took over and his son eventually became a Dr also and practiced until he was 89 and...
