Vermont – so much food

The nice thing about following RV blogs and social media is sometimes you can just steal all their hard work for yourself. This was the case when we visited Danville, Vermont. Chapter3Travels had visited the Cabot, VT in the past and their itinerary sounded perfect to us so we just decided to plagiarize most of...

Meetups and Hangouts

Games, games, and more games! The last few weeks, we’ve been back in Red Bay, AL finishing the rest of our warranty work on R2. While it does keep us busy, there isn’t much else to do in Red Bay which meant no more excuses and time to catch up on blogging. So back to...

Cape Breton Island

After our colorful stay in Lunenburg, we moved to the northern side of Nova Scotia to Wolfville for a few days. Wolfville brought us back to the Bay of Fundy which meant we were back in the area of high tidal ranges and chocolate colored water. Since Opie was such a great sport about staying...

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

Since we fulfilled our Opie hiking duties in New Brunswick, we felt guilt-free about leaving Opie in the RV so we could play tourist in Lunenburg, especially since Mike’s brother and his wife came to visit for a few days and co-tourist with us. Lunenburg is a tiny port town (less than 2 squares miles)...

Driving, driving, driving New Brunswick

We made it to Canada! Our border crossing at Calais Maine consisted of a 5-minute conversation about where we’re going, what we’re doing, and what we’re bringing with us. When asked about weapons including pepper spray, we mentioned our bear spray for hiking and were told that as long as it’s labeled for animal defense...

Dog hiking in Acadia

Almost all the hikes in Acadia are dog-friendly. There are a few exceptions, mostly due to iron rungs/climbing and there are some trails that are not recommended because of rock scrambling and steep inclines; however if you have a flexible and active dog, those trails may be fine with a little human help from time...

Everyone is right about Acadia…

It’s flipping amazing! While Acadia National Park only encompasses 49,000 acres of the Atlantic coastline in Maine (comparatively Yellowstone is 2.24 mil acres), making it the 13th smallest National Park by size, it contains almost 150 miles of trails, 45 miles of carriage roads (perfect for biking), 7 peaks above 1000 ft (small potatoes compared...

Boston, history and traffic

Continuing our journey north, we stopped for a few days outside of Boston to hang out and visit some history. We stayed in Acton, an hour outside of Boston at Boston Minutemen Campground, a nice small wooded campground near the train station. The campground feels more like a county park than a commercial RV park...

Wildly weird Rhode Island

First of all, it’s not even an island! It’s firmly attached to Connecticut and Massachusetts. Second, the official name is State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. So while it’s the smallest state in the US (by size), it has the longest official name. Third, while the island part of the state is officially called Rhode...

New York City – So Much of Everything

While we aren’t big fans of cities (many are similar with little to really distinguish them), NYC is a whole different beast and we had to immerse ourselves in the experience. NYC isn’t RV friendly (yeah, I know…brilliant observation) so RVers, including us, use Liberty Harbor RV Park as home base. It isn’t pretty (it’s...
