On the Road to Vermont

Well Monday morning we backed the motorhome out of the driveway, hooked up the car and started our journey to Vermont and the Newmar Int. Rally. We are following I-81 towards Scranton, Pa and will connect up to I-84 East. Along the way, we saw a number of the Nextel Cup Team vehicles heading for their homebases from racing in New Hampshire. The next stop will be in Dover, Delware for the racers.

We also seen the trucks of Brad Pasley, a country singer for you that don't know, as they were heading for the next gig.

We also saw a number of the top end motorhomes that belong to the NASCAR drivers.
The drivers, for the most part, flew home Sunday evening and its up to the crews to get everything either back to the homebase or to the next track.

We are staying several days in Sturbridge, Mass and will be heading for Moody Beach, Me. While there we will make the manatory stop at L.L. Bean.

The Newmar Rally is being held later in the year so we can have a shot at seeing the fall colors. Here's hoping it works out for us. We are seeing signs already of leaves changing.

Went to the Vet Today

Leah took me to the vet today and I got poked, prodded and told I was overweight. Boy, how many of you have heard that? Well, I guess we'll just have to let up on the doggie treats abit. :-) The worst part of the whole day is I have to go bad and have my teeth worked on, bummer :-(

We are packing the motorhome for a rally in Vermont and plan to see some friends who live in New Hampshire. Our fingers are crossed that we will see the fall colors as well. Tom had the motorhome serviced and gassed up so we will be ready to go.

This past weekend we went camping with members of our Goodsam group. Tom and Leah were one of three host couples for the Laborday Weekend. We left home Friday Morning heading South towards Williamsburg, Va. Guess what was heading North? Yep, Ernesto.

We drove in rain about two thirds of the trip. The further South we went the more rain we encountered. Traffic was backed up on I-95 several miles North of the I-64 turn off. Some guy was in the medium stip in a jeep and was not making any headway in getting out. The backup was caused by rubber neckers.

The trip was going along fairly smoothly in spite of the heavy rains until we got within three miles of our exit. Traffic was stopped because of downed trees and power lines. It took us an hour to go three miles.

When we got to the campground, we found out the electric was out. About 7 PM the power was restored. One trailer in the campground was not very lucky as you can see in the picture. Boy, were we glad we were camped in the open.
