Yes, there is a Woodstock VT, and its a beautiful little town along the Ottoqueechee River. Arrived there late in the afternoon, to a motel all set up for Covid reception. No touch, no talk. Just fill in the form in the room with Covid related queries. Somehow I lucked out, and was given a corner room with a huge view over the river as it came round a bend and into town. Just sat there worn out from the ride staring at the view, the leaves changing... Then went out and had a great meal at a local restaurant. The route North from Readsboro ranges from East to West across this rather narrow section of the state, winding through the Green Mountain National Forest looking for the scenic and non-developed countryside. Big towns like Bennington ... read more

Sadly our time in Vermont is ending tomorrow as we head to Boston. We have absolutely loved it here - the people are friendly and accommodating, the food is great and it’s a beautiful place. The last few days have been filled with relaxing, eating and playing in the snow. For many people, when your seven year old is lying flat on her back in the snow, after careening down an icy hill on a sled, having head-butted the slope, crying and claiming that she “can’t move my legs”, it would be cause for some concern. Luckily Genevieve has given us much experience of her self injury assessment process, and in reality, it was nothing a bit of lunch and a lie on the couch didn’t fix (oh, and surgery to reconnect her spinal cord). Despite ... read more

We always said we were coming to Vermont to eat (us) and play in the snow (them), and so far, it hasn’t disappointed on either account. Had to haul arse from our hotel in Midtown to Mecca (also known as Grand Central Station to those not in the transport way) which was about as much exercise as I had intended for the week. Train trip to Stamford was efficient and easy, as was car pick up and journey onto the Interstate, and before we knew it, we were paying homage at that most American of institutions, the road-side Maccas stop. Some were more reverent than others. Unfortunately it seemed much of the country was also making pilgrimages, and we encountered quite a bit of traffic. But as we headed further north, and more and more snow ... read more

Hey! So I lied. I will actually be blogging for all of my minor trips this summer plus Canada and Ireland! We leave tomorrow for minor trip #1: Vermont. We are going to see family friends for the Fourth, something we've been doing for my whole life. We leave tomorrow morning and leave on Sunday. I will try to blog about twice a day: once about plans and once about reflections on the day. One thing I'm looking forward to: the Billings Farm Spelling Bee! I have won it twice. First blog tomorrow from the car! See ya... read more

So I know I said there were to be no more entires unitl I had left the mountains but with one more free day before skiing started, my Dad and I decided to take a trip out of Rutland and head east to Wookstock (not the place made famous by the big music festival, but the quiet, Vermont alternative) and it proved to be a very blog worthy decision! After sorting out our things for the week ahead we had the rest of Saturday afternoon to fill so we took a ride out to Woodstock. On the way we stopped off at a suger mill where I eventually saw and learn't how maple syrup is made and we also got some cool photos along the way over the river. I have also seen so many different ... read more
