Sep 14, 2016 - Schenectady New York

What a beautiful day for a drive. We left the campground around 9 am but needed a stop at the local Walmart. There are not many in this part of the country. Our drive today was to Schenectady NY to spend the night at Arrowhead Marina & RV Park. The campground is located right on the river so it was a nice view. This is just drive and park type day, didn’t leave the campground after we arrived.

2016 New England

Aug 8, 2016 - Pooka

"From old celtic mythology; A fairy spirit in animal form, always very large. The Pooka appears here and there, now and then, to this one and that one. A benign but mischievous creature. Very fond of rum pots, crack pots, and how are you Mr. Wilson?" -Harvey, 1950 My next jump was to West Virginia. As has become my custom, after I setup my camp site, I went to the grocery store, the nearest of which is a Walmart. There was a teenage girl in the parking lot selling baby bunnies. I checked inside the Walmart and they sold all of the...

Jul 31, 2016 - Go West Young Man

Having spent four months in New England, it’s time to head out on new explorations of our glorious country. My first year as a full-time tourist was basically random with extremely little advance planning. I had a rough plan of making a long counter-clockwise loop from New England to South Dakota, Texas, Florida and back to New England. And, that’s exactly what I did. Along the way, I would find and visit whatever was fascinating locally. Even though I’ve traveled extensively for my entire life, I was still amazed that there was always...

Sep 27, 2015 - New York

I guess you have noticed that we have had no pictures of beautiful fall colors, leaves and things. Everybody says its because it has been so dry this year. Doesn't help us, we have traveled up and down the coast of Maine and across Massachusetts but still nothing but a hint. Maybe New York will show off for us. Timing is everything.

Aug 26, 2014 - Making Tracks West

We were in four states today, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and finally, New York. It was not a day for photo ops; we stopped often enough to stretch but kept moving. The sites at Arrowhead Marine & RV Park are laid out as the spokes of a circle, which is interesting and works well, with all the hookups fairly centralized. It’s on a river, shady, grassy, and buggy (a constant this season). Joe fixed the gas water heater (spider webs or bugs are frequent cloggers of the supply line) and replaced two light bulbs, adjusting a...

Jul 20, 2013 - This is a fishy story

We weren’t sure of our next destination as Rich wanted to do some fishing, so we finally found a Coast to Coast campground just west of Albany – actually in Schenectady, NY. Coast to Coast hasn’t always been kind to us so believe me I had no expectations, but I have been pleasantly surprised. We are on a mountain; the park is well maintained with stocked ponds that require no fishing license, and very nice park staff. Oh, yes…the restrooms get a 10+ so I’m happy. We had a bit of an adventure getting here though, relying mostly on the GPS to...

Summer 2013 Stories

Jul 16, 2011 - Schenectady, N. Y.

A short drive to Schenectady, NY. We drove beside small lakes and the Erie Canal. Not much here to see so will only spend one night here. This is a blue collar town but the campground is nice. Another family type with a small lake and lots of things for the kids. We are backed up to a huge play field. Parked next to another HHII from OK. Bill

Steele summer 2011

Jul 9, 2011 - Hampton Beach 2011

We finally got all the crops planted and sprayed. This morning we started our trip to Hampton Beach. We had decided to make the border crossing at Queenston/Lewiston at Niagara Falls. As we approached Niagara they had warnings signs of a two hour delay at the Queenston bridge. Not wanting to be stopped for several hours, we decided to continue to Fort Erie and make the crossing there. We were still delayed about an hour, but cleared customs and headed east along I90 toward Albany. It cost us $45.00 in tolls to get to Albany, but was an...

Jul 9, 2009 - Highland Falls to Schenectady, NY

We got an early start for once and arrived at West Point a bit after 9 a.m. We caught a one-hour tour at 9:45. It was a little pricey -- $42 – but it was great. We hopped on a school bus and our tour guide told us all about the history of the campus. We stopped at the largest cathedral, drove past all of the professors’ houses, then got out again in front of the dorms and mess hall. Although it’s summer and regular classes aren’t in session, the cadets get very little time off. They spend this time in combat training. We saw cadets and a...

Oct 5, 2008 - Just hanging out

Sunday 10/5/08 Just hanging out I took the truck to the car wash this morning. I couldn’t stand the dirt any more. The brush-less car wash works pretty well. I used the self serve in Sault Saint Marie, Mi. It wasn’t as clean, it cost me more and I was wet when I finished. This is much better. After washing the truck, we went to lunch and did some shopping to resupply the MH. Ray grows giant pumpkins and enters them in the Cooperstown, NY competition. It was last weekend this year. His weighed 420 pounds but the winner weighed 1280 pounds....

Friday 10/3/08 Went for a short drive We went to Breakfast at the Starr and Ray diner then went for a ride to Camping World. After Camping World we drove Schoharie Valley. Along the way we stopped at the Apple Barrel craft shop; an interesting place. During this entire trip, Cherie has been looking for a moose.

Saturday 10/4/08 Went for a longer drive We first went to Warrensburg RV park in the...

Oct 2, 2008 - Driving to Schenectady, NY

Wednesday 10/2/08 Driving to Schenectady, NY IT’s a 200 mile trip to Schenectady. We left Meredith, NH about 9:45am, 53 degrees and overcast skies. A little way down the road it started to rain. It rained off and on all the way to Schenectady We could see patches of blue off to the west but they eluded us. We went south a short distance down I-93 then turned west on Hwy 9 toward Vermont. The fall color just gets better and better as we drive west. Crossing into Vermont, we drive along the river, passing ponds with still water and trees...
