I'm not sure how far you can increase it's size but the yellow high lighted line is our route. The maritime provinces are a little hard to see but we drove all around them. Right now we are in Sandy Hook, Conn. at my cousin's place to do a little routine maintenance on the coach and our bodies. My cousin is a great cook and really spoils us. Anyway we are about 3500 miles from home but we have traveled 9886 miles so far according to the GPS. We really don't drive very straight.

Also be careful what you ask for. So far Irene has taken over 5000 pictures, piccys or snaps to you, on this trip. By the way she said she emailed you 39 piccys last night.

Tell Hans to be nice to the smart. You may be making it nervous selling all the other vehicles.

Cheers, Dan

Sorry Lili there are bears around but we haven't seen any and there are also supposed to be lots of moose but we haven't seen any of them either and Irene is not happy about that.

Also Bob you mentioned how they mine and cut the granite slabs. They drill holes about 1" dia. and about 4" apart in a line across the top and across the front of the block they want to remove. They then insert a piece of "det cord" in each hole in the bottom front and set it off and it breaks the block loose along the line of drilled holes. The slabs are then cut with a band saw using a diamond coated wire blade. I think he said they have a saw running six blades to cut six slabs at a time. They also have a circular saw with a diamond tipped blade. Det cord is a fuse cord used in blasting that explodes rather than burns. It's like putting a small charge in each hole.

Cheers, Dan

Back to our regular program I think I left off in Burlington. When we headed out I wanted to take in some views of Lake Champlain, the largest freshwater lake in the country. It can be difficult because much of the shoreline in this area is occupied by private homes and public access is limited. We did get a few pics.

Our next stop was the Shelbourne Museum. This is a collection of 39 exhibition buildings 25 of which are historic and have been moved to the site which is 48 acres. The museum was founded by Electra Havemeyer Webb to house her collection of early American artifacts. She also purchased the steamship Ticonderoga when it was retired in 1953. She moved the 220', 892 ton ship nearly two miles from Lake Champlain to the museum.

The Ticonderoga was built of riveted iron in 1906 and carried passengers until 1953. It is the only walking beam, side wheel passenger steamer in existence today.
This is me standing by the crankshaft that drives the side wheels.

I don't think she can fall off of this one.

Our next stop was the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory.

She has a Betsy Ross dress and is holding her freshly baked apple pie.
We also visited the teddy bear hospital where you can send your injured teddy bear for medical care.

Leaving the Teddy Bear Factory driving south we sadly saw evidence of the recent flooding from Hurricane Irene.

Mike about the only plan we have so far is to go by the Statue of Liberty and then to DC to see the Nations Capital. The Hershey antique car swap meet is in about two weeks and I'm thinking about that. It's the largest antique car event in the world.

Beyond that I haven't a clue.

Cheers, Dan

Come on Lili, you are jumping ahead in the trip, those bears didn't come along until the next day. And yes we did see lots of "Teddy Bears" at the Teddy Bear factory.

Cheers, Dan
