Hey Brian, stay a spell at Mt Washington. If you are hikers, climb up into Tuckermans Ravine and watch some wild off-piste ski action-along with a rockin' party at "lunch rocks". It's about a 2 hr climb-not too bad.

If you don't want to climb, the auto road may be open (not sure what date it opens-depends on snow cover). You can unhitch and leave the AS right at the base-plenty of room. Another option; Dolly Copp campground (National Forest Site) 5 minutes up the road on RT 16. Water to fill up, no hookups. Get your self a site out in the meadow-you'll have one heck of a view of the surrounding mountains. Probably have the place to yourself. I'd spend a day/night here and explore this beautiful area...
White Mountain National Forest - Dolly Copp Campground

There is a 70's unit right down the road in Bartlett NH (between Mt Washington and North Conway) always wondered if it was a forum member?

Bill

Tuckerman's Ravine!!! Some of us from my High School Ski Team ( Merrimack-N.H.)"DID" Tuckerman's in the late 60's! Thanks for the memory Bill.
When you fell you picked up all your stuff at the bottom in the rocks! Oh yea and the wind!

Sueellen & Brian- As you can see from those posting from New England- You will find some of the nicest people on the planet live there! Just give them a moment or two to size you up! lol
I'm waiting for all the pics!
Drive safe. Tim

Day 4 (Wednesday, May 6)

We have remained at the Campground in Delaware, Ohio, visiting with our friends here.

We did our first oil change on the Honda Generators. They each had accumulated 10 run hours. It went pretty well with a minimum of oil spillage.

We saw our first Buckeye Tree. This campground has one up by the office. I would have thought that the "Buckeye State" would have these trees all over the place, but we were told that they are somewhat rare. The photos below are of the Buckeye Tree. It is currently in bloom.

We stopped by the local Wal-Mart to check it out, and find a better funnel for the generator oil changes.

We had a nice quiet supper on Lucy's patio with our friends.

Hey Moose,

You should take your kayaks across the street to Alum Creek state park. Middle of the week, heck, you can probably get a site on the water. Enjoy, I am looking forward to reading about your trip.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Tis the season, summer should be a couple of weeks in July or August.
This weather brings out the best shades of green this side of Arizona.
Fish are going wild.
The birds and bugs are working on future generations.
All in all a great time to be on the road, enjoy!

Day 5 (Wednesday, May 7)

We're still visiting in Columbus. We had a nice visit, but it's time to move on.

We spent the day doing some house work around Lucy. It started to rain here today, so we couldn't do much outside stuff.

We had supper at our friends' house and said our goodbyes.

We've started breaking camp tonight.

Day 6 (Thursday, May 8)

It's still raining this morning. Breaking camp was pretty messy, lots of mud to deal with.

In our usual fashion, we were on our way just prior to the crack of noon. We made our way up to Akron, then east into Pennsylvania. We did about 450 miles, and have made camp for the night at the Petro Truck Stop near Scranton, Pennsylvania. We've stayed here several times before. They have 30 amp RV electric for $9.

It's Friday morning here at the Petro Truck Plaza in Avoca, Pennsylvania, near Scranton. It's pouring rain, again.

This morning we had an email from Barb at Cupsuptic Campground in Oquossoc, Maine (our first Maine destination). She wrote that they are still experiencing overnight temperatires in the 20's, and are not yet able to turn the water on at the campsites.

We've altered our plans slightly to give Maine a little more time to thaw out.

We are going to head from here to Lake Placid, New York for a couple of days.

Here's a photo of Lucy and Olivia basking in the rain at the Petro with their tuck buddies.

Brian, Rangely area is pretty far up in Maine, no surprise it is still 20's at night.
If you head down to MT washington area first you should be fine.

Keep on truckin'!

Brian - Too bad you didn't make the trip to Phoenix. No freeze problems here and we could use the rain...

hmmm

I don't know what your time restrictions are or your interest for that matter, but I would be tempted to swing over and check out the Adirondacks. Never been there myself, but it looks interesting and if I was waiting for Maine to thaw and had the time, I might give it a go.

the Adirondacks are worth it but probably as cold as Maine , and it's about a week early for the campground openings. You may be better off doing the southern Maine coast first and then heading north , weather will be better and you'll miss the heavy tourists on rte. 1. The NEU is heading out to Wells beach this WE if it's of any interest , Sea Vu campground.
