New Territory

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

Vermont 2010 012

the Hudson River one last time.  From Newburgh, we were less than 100 miles to the

Vermont 2010 016

Connecticut State line.  We had a good trip on through

Vermont 2010 028

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

Vermont 2010 069 mountains.

We did see the

Vermont 2010 070

White River and this

cute little town nestled in the mountains after we crossed the

Vermont 2010 051

Vermont state line.

We decided to take a break, so we stopped at the

Vermont 2010 059

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

Vermont 2010 086

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

Vermont 2010 088

Chamber of Commerce which was located at the service station.

With a left turn out of the service station, we were headed down

Vermont 2010 091

Vermont 66 to the little town of Randolph Center.  Once we were in town, we took another

Vermont 2010 092

left turn, past the

Vermont 2010 082

post office,

Vermont 2010 083

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

Vermont 2010 096

office and was directed to our

Vermont 2010 097


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

Vermont 2010 101

row in front of us!

And, if you take a walk down to the

Vermont 2010 106

swimming pool, there is a third level of

Vermont 2010 107

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.
