This morning by 9:00, we were packed up, hooked up, checked out, and ready to roll. We traveled Route 32/300 back towards Newburgh, made a left turn and headed across
the Hudson River one last time. From Newburgh, we were less than 100 miles to the
Connecticut State line. We had a good trip on through
Hartford. There were a few times that the traffic slowed down or stopped. Once for a traffic accident, but mostly for construction. But, for the most part, it was an uneventful travel day. Just hot!
I was chatting with Arlene on Facebook and totally missed the Massachusetts state sign. Oh, well, I will get it next time. I think I will be in and out of there several times in the next few weeks.
There wasn't much to see on the interstate during today's travel as we were mostly in the
We did see the
White River and this
cute little town nestled in the mountains after we crossed the
Vermont state line.
We decided to take a break, so we stopped at the
Vermont Visitor Center where we found
lots of brochures for Vermont attractions. I think more than we will have time for.
At our exit, Mark saw this
service station and wanted to fill up before going to the campground. Fuel was $2.97/gal. That is the lowest price we have paid since Texas. And, it wasn't even at a truck stop. Pretty good price for a small station.
We also picked up a few more brochures at the local
Chamber of Commerce which was located at the service station.
With a left turn out of the service station, we were headed down
Vermont 66 to the little town of Randolph Center. Once we were in town, we took another
left turn, past the
Floyd's General Store, which by the way was built in 1868. Today, they still offer a full line of grocery items. I can't wait to go shopping.
Then just past Floyd's was the right turn and then the left turn into the
I checked in at the
office and was directed to our
Just a block or two and we were level on this lovely green grass. I almost hated to park on it.
I think we found a winner in this park...I mean just
take a look at our row and then gaze across to the
row in front of us!
And, if you take a walk down to the
swimming pool, there is a third level of
camp sites there too.
After of travel day of 290 miles, we had a great evening...sitting out, grilling, and taking a long walk.
Now, we are shuffling through all those brochures and making a plan for tomorrow's adventure. And, if I had my guesses, I imagine, it will include a trip to Ben and Jerry's and maybe even a cheese place or two. Or, who knows, we might even see a covered bridge.
