For some reason our travels never took us through Vermont….until now. As we were traveling north on Interstate 91 I was watching intently for the welcome sign so I could be sure to get a picture of it. I looked away for a minute and almost missed it! It’s so small!! It is a small state, but come on Vermont, you can do better than that.
Fort Dummer State Park is our home for the next three nights. It’s just outside the town of Brattleboro, Vermont, and very close to our destination of Keene, New Hampshire. It is named for a British fort that was built here in 1724. The fort was named for William Dummer, Lieutenant Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony at the time.
This is by far the nicest place we have “camped” since we left Minnesota 9 days ago. There are no hookups so we are dry camping. Water and a dump station are available. But we are without electricity… good thing we got those new batteries yesterday! After we got set up we went for a walk around the campground. We were surprised to see so many vacancies for a Friday night. The temperature was perfect and there were no bugs!
Now I get to finally fill that hole in my travel map where Vermont is.
Only seven states needed to complete all 50 United States! Not likely the RV will make it to Hawaii, so will settle for 49.
- Gasoline: $36 @ $2.45
- Lodging: $67 for the next three nights
