And We’re Off!

We have had such a great time visiting our kids in New England but, sad to say, it’s time to go. The campground we have been staying in for most of the summer closed down for the season on October 31 and it was getting pretty frosty there too so we are now on our way south for the winter again.

Here are a few pictures from the last few months in New Hampshire.

Tuesday morning, after waiting for the frost to leave and the temp to rise a bit, we left our favorite campground and began our trip south for the winter. Our first stop, not far, was for propane and gasoline. Nothing exciting here, just a necessity.

Propane Fill, Gas too.

The first day, we drove only 100 miles, stopping at Cabela’s at East Hartford, Connecticut, for a free overnight stay in the RV parking area behind the store. Most campgrounds around here have already closed for the winter so we didn’t even try to find one. Our daughter from New Haven CT drove up to say hi and have dinner with us. We left first thing in the morning.

Wednesday, our mission was to get ourselves around New York City as quickly as possible, so we timed our drive to avoid the rush hours.  After 220 miles around the city we found the Walmart store near Trenton, New Jersey, to park for the night.  We have stayed here a few times before and it works well for us.

We will be on our way in the morning after breakfast and when we think the morning rush hour traffic has calmed.
