Our new Winnebago Travato Touring Coach has not been just sitting in the garage. It has been out for routine maintenance such as a tire rotation and alignment and an oil change. It’s good to go.
This weekend we joined seven other Travato owners for a little meetup in Vermont. Vermont is beautiful! Our drive was two and a half hours and we enjoyed every mile of it. The fall colors are just beginning to change.
Along the way we stopped at the Vermont Country Store and King Arthur Flour Bakery Cafe and Gift Shop. We have been there before and they are some of my favorite stops.
Another Travato owner invited several other owners to converge on her front yard at her home near Montpelier. We all found each other on a Travato group on Facebook. It was cool to meet them all in person. And the weather was outstanding!
Saturday morning we all went for a drive. A parade of Travatos! It did get some attention. For sure it was an interesting site to see as we went to try to get a picture of all of us parked in front of the Vermont State House, and then to a restaurant for brunch and then to a maple sugar place.
Success! We were able to park six of us in front of the capitol building.
After brunch we continued our parade to a maple sugar farm for some treats.
After that we all went our separate ways to explore on our own for a while. How could we resist a stop at nearby Ben & Jerry’s Factory!
The town of Barre VT, The Sculpture City, was our next stop. There are several sculptures carved in granite here. One of my favorite ones was Unzipping the Earth, designed and carved by Chris Miller. The largest zipper in America.
