After a tough day in the saddle yesterday, we got a good night sleep feeling especially safe next to the
Well, other than that, it was a wonderful day on the roads of Vermont. Beautiful countryside rode through the capitol of Vermont (Montpelier) and Cheryl even stumbled on the Vermont Antique & Classic Car Show in Waterbury Village VT. Of course we didn't stop at the Vermont capitol building but we had to stop at the car show. Some really nice cars and conversations with the proud owners. Whether it's listening to Steven talking about rebuilding a 65 Mustang convertible with his dad before he passed away or hearing about Russ' journey's in his 85 VW Vanagon which he bought new and has over 365K miles on it from traveling with his wife throughout the US and Canada. We had a great time.
We set up camp at the Lazy Lions Campground and I quickly opened a can of my version of injector cleaner (complete with barley, hops and alcohol additives). My first impression of the campground was not very good. The owner Darryl was a little bit of a grouch on the phone this morning and when we checked in this afternoon. Later I realized we were out of ice so I reluctantly walked up to the office to ask Darryl if they sold ice. "No we do not." he quickly replied. Then as I started out the door he says "I'm heading to the store, I'll pick you up a bag." 30 minutes later he delivered a bag of ice to our site. Now I'm a huge Darryl fan! Wow, so much for first impressions!
We actually BBQ'd tonight for the first time in a couple weeks which was a nice change of pace. Tomorrow we continue on to Lincoln NH (our 14th state). Should be about 50 miles or so depending on where we camp. Then it is about 100 miles to Portland ME. Hard to believe. Hopefully both the RV and my engines continue to keep chugging along!
