As we were camping, we went to Ben & Jerry's, which was about an hour away from us. Been there before. We did not take the tour. I know how ice cream is made and had no desire to pay to see it made. Our first stop was the cemetery. The cemetery was revamped. I told my nephew that we were going to their cemetery and he thought it was a cemetery for dead workers. I told him, it was a cemetery of dead flavors. Some of the flavors sound DISGUSTING. Some sounded real good. Some didn't live that long. The last time we were there, Dean ordered coffee-coffee, buzz-buzz. We then walked to the graveyard and saw its headstone. Dean felt like he was ripped-off, because he got a dead flavor. It's no longer a ... read more

Greetings from Vermont, I am currently sitting in a beautiful cabin in the woods of Waterbury, Vermont. It has been snowing and generally a scene from a winter wonderland. We arrived on Saturday afternoon after a six hour drive in the new ford galaxy, this car gets a shout out because it's really good and I totally want one now. Anyway, enough about that. The cabin is stunning and totally exceeded my expectations.... read more

Yes - good old John Denver - Suz is a great DJ - she has playlists with Abba and Queen and Babs and John Denver, Roy Orbisob and Glen Campbell, Ella Fitzgerald ( all my favourites) ... and we while away the hours singing along as we drive the country roads... knowing eventually they will take us "home" wherever that happens to be at the time. Those very picturesque country tourist maps with pics of mountains and rivers and shops and cafes etc are very cute to look at but sometimes can lead you astray but what the heck in the end we are discovering the highways and byways of New Hampshire White Mountains as we bool along and I think we have by now driven every roads there is in this region. But yesterday we ... read more

Left Quebec City before 7am this morning - with a destination of Vermont USA being where we were heading for a day trip. Vermont was a destination we wanted to visit for 2 reasons. The first was to see the fall foliage - Vermont is number 1 in the USA to see fall at its best. The second reason was to visit the famous "Ben & Jerry's" factory in Waterbury Vermont. The drive from Quebec City to the USA border was uneventful - a good easy drive but not much in the way of scenery. Crossing over the border was no drama just a 15 minute wait as only one custom officer working at the station. After crossing the Vermont border the colours along the highway were amazing so we thought we were going to be ... read more

My third good weather day in northern New Hampshire was the day of my departure. The bright side of that coin is that I didn’t have to pull the Pilgrim on rain-slickened roadways. Lancaster NH is located on the shores of the Connecticut River so Vermont is only a bridge away. The short drive to Duxbury Country Store & Campground in Duxbury VT on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 was uneventful although I couldn’t help but think of the events that transpired eleven years earlier and of the monument I had seen in Eastport ME about a month ago. It was dedicated to Angel Juarbe, Jr., the New York City firefighter who won a reality show grand prize and lost his life in the World Trade Center attack a week after the airing of the final episode. ... read more
