Lucy got a late start today. We met another Airstreamer at the campground this morning and spent some time discussing Airstream experiences. We finally left the campground at Noon and continued our trip.

We quickly crossed into Maryland and on to Pennsylvania. We stayed on I-81 most of the day as US 11 had several areas of road construction.

With the late start, Lucy only covered 220 miles today. We made camp for the night at the Petro Truck Plaza in Scranton, Pennsylvania. This truck plaza has 30 amp power available for RV's.

Today's pictures include:

- Old filling station building in Martinsburg, West Virginia.
- coming into Maryland.
- Lucy makes it to Pennsylvania.
- Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
- Lucy's campsite at the truck plaza.
- Lucy made a new best friend at the truck plaza.

On your 300 mile days are you sharing driving? If so, how often do you switch, how many stops do you make? We are trying to decide our distances and driving duties for when retirement allows more travel at hopefully more leisurely pace.

I do just about all of the driving. SuEllyn will tow Lucy occasionally when we are out in North Dakota or Montana. As to breaks while traveling, we try to make a short stop every 90 minutes or so and move around.

Lucy got an early start from the truck Plaza this morning. She made her way through the rest of Pennsylvania on the Interstate in pretty heavy traffic. Early this afternoon, we crossed into New York. at Port Jervis. We continued through Newbergh where we crossed the Hudson River, and continued into Connecticut at Danbury. We made our way across Connecticut to Mystic, the town of Mystic Pizza fame. We got Lucy a really nice campsite and got her settled in for the night. We are going to spend a couple of nights here to do a little exploring. We got Lucy unhooked from Fred for the first time since leaving Jacksonville.

Tonight's pictures include:
- entering New York State.
- Rest areas are billed as Text Stops in New York.
- Bridge crossing the Hudson River near Newburgh, New York.
- Entering Connecticut.
- 1906 St. Anne's Church in Waterbury, Connecticut.
- Victorian home in Middletown, Connecticut.
- Downtown Middletown, Connecticut.
- Five Guys in vintage diner in Groton, Connecticut.
- Fred and the Girls tucked in at their campsite in Mystic, Connecticut.

Thanks for the update! You are just north of us. Mystic Seaport is great, been there many times. Good week for a visit as schools are not out yet.

If you have the time for a day trip, Old Sturbridge Village in MA is not too far north of you (est. 1.5 hours maybe). It is an amazing trip back in time, and also should not be too crowded this week.

https://www.osv.org/visit

They have lots of working shops and exhibits with staff in period dress. It is really well done. Walking around "in the past" is a trip not to be missed IMO.

Blacksmith, print shop, general store, etc. etc. -- all should be working exhibits like Jamestown and Williamsburg VA. Like Mystic Seaport too!

Have fun!

Peter

PS -- Or you could stop at Sturbridge on your way north, or coming south later this summer. It is well worth a visit, but not sure what campgrounds they have nearby.

We are staying in Mystic, Connecticut for another night so we can see some of the sights in the area. This morning we headed out in Fred and Ethel. We took in the sights in old town Mystic. There is a lot of history here. This town has been here since 1647. Mystic had its Centennial before the Revolutionary War. We then headed over to nearby Groton, Connrcticut. We visited the Naval Submarine Base. We visited the Submarine Museum and took a tour of the USS Nautilus, the first nuclear powered submarine. It was interesting to see this vessel which was launched in 1954.

We drove over to New London, Connecticut, where we visited the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. We visited the Coast Guard Museum and drove around the Academy Campus.

We drove back over to Mystic and went by Mystic Pizza. As our luck would have it, their pizza oven was malfunctioning and could not serve any pizza. We went up the street to another pizza restaurant. We decided that if we couldn't have pizza at Mystic Pizza, we could at least have Pizza in Mystic.

We got back to Lucy at her campsite and settled in for the night.

Tonight's pictures include:

- 1840 house in Mystic, Connecticut.
- USS Nautilus.
- Crew bunks on the Nautilus.
- SuEllyn in one of the small doorways aboard the Nautilus.
- A piece of the actual chain that was stretched across the Hudson River from West Point, New York to Constitution Island to thwart the British Fleet.
- Hamilton Hall on the Parade ground at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
- Downtown Groton, Connecticut.
- Mystic Pizza.
- Mystic River Bridge,
- Candy shop in Mystic with a very imaginative sign.

Lucy Has Escaped!

You're ALMOST in my neck of the woods - about 2 hours away. If I wasn't working I'd be headed your way to say hello!

In the meantime, if you do go to Sturbridge, there's a campground in Oakham, MA that we liked - in site 83 or 83A in a beautiful rustic setting on the water.

http://pineacresresort.com

Probably a 20-30 minute drive to Sturbridge Village from there.

Happy trails!!
