[QUOTE=Goal15;1805407]Brian

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.
Dana



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!!

As you climbed the hill as you passed Port Jervis, you no doubt took in the view to the north. See all those woods? That's where I live!

Thanks for the CG info and photo. I assume Old Sturbridge Village parking can accommodate trailers for day parking? I have only been there in a car.

Edit -- Yes, the FAQ say so and have a link for campgrounds.

Thanks for the tips, Steve. We're just kind of meandering around New England. We don't have any solid plan. We want to do some exploring of Rhode Island before we head to Maine.

Look South when you climbed out of Port Jervis, that is where I live. I am going to figure out how to get this thread delivered to me. I love your style. When you go to Vt we love Greenwood Lodge as a base. West of Bennington on Rt 9. We make day trip to go to Brattleboro, down to Ma across Mohawk Trail W and back to campground. Enjoy your journey.

If you meander New England to the Champlain Islands in the Northwest corner of Vermont, let me know. We own a summer cottage rental business so will surely be here!

Lucy broke camp this morning in Mystic, Connecticut, and headed east. We crossed into Rhode Island and continued into Massachusetts. Lucy made camp at Gateway to Cape Cod Campground in Rochester, Massachusetts. Rochester is a little town just east of New Bedford, Massachusetts. Rochester was founded in 1686, almost one hundred years before the Revolutionary War. We got Lucy settled into a very nice shaded campsite. We arrived here early as Lucy only covered about 100 miles today.

We toured New Bedford this afternoon. We visited the Whaling National Historic Park. We learned quite a bit about the whaling industry that we didn't know.

We also toured Fort Tabor which was designed and built to protect the important industrial center of New Bedford.in the 1850's. The fort was designed by Major Richard Delafield and Captain Robert E. Lee. The actual construction of the fort was supervised by Lieutenant Henry Robert who would later authored Robert's Rules of Order. The fort property was ceded to the City of New Bedford and is now a public historic park.

We headed back to the campground, and got back to Lucy before dark.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Bridge into Fall River, Massachusetts.
- 1920 Fairhaven High School, Fairhaven, Massachusetts.
- Ceiling in historic bank building in Downtown New Bedford, Massachusetts.
- Architectural effects abound in Downtown new Bedford, Massachusetts.
- Fred and Ethel parked on one of the many cobblestone streets in Downtown New Bedford, Massachusetts.
- 1936 US Light Ship Nantucket docked a t wharf in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
- Fort Tabor in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
- Ornate historic home near down New Bedford, Massachusetts.
- 1897 Acushnet River Bridge opening for vessel trafffic on US 6 in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
- The lobster roll that SuEllyn picked up on the way back to the campground.

Love the pictures and commentary. Saving your blog as we plan to go to east coast next year. Interested in how you found a truck stop with 30 amp hookup for your AS?
