Orchard Beach, Maine Didn't Disappoint

Orchard Beach, Maine Didn't Disappoint

  • by Garrett Tershel

So I thought, since we were so close to the ocean we would find a close beach and go for a walk.  It was a nice night, and well luck would have it, it became a great night...

Ahhh, Vermont!

Ahhh, Vermont!

  • by Garrett Tershel

Sometimes I am so focused on a task that is in front of me I am not prepared to enjoy the experience. In November, I was still learning to pull a trailer and had had a couple of long drives in Ohio and New York. I just wanted to get to my next destination. I was ready for the drive but I wish I knew what we were going to see. Vermont was an awesome blur!

Fall into Autumn

Fall into Autumn

  • by desiertog

Towards the end of summer, when crowds have died down and kids have gone back to school, I have always had the urge to travel. I would look up places to go and, invariably, I would be drawn to color drives; drives to look at the trees changing colors. Fall is my season...

A Thousand Trails to Maine

A Thousand Trails to Maine

  • by desiertog

We could hear water so decided to walk into the woods a little. We ended up finding a little lake and little waterfalls. We spent maybe an hour and a half exploring. If we had packed water shoes and a lunch we would have spent much more time there. We came to find it was called Schroon Lake.

Low bridge, everybody down ... Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal

Low bridge, everybody down ... Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal

  • by Garrett Tershel

As our quest to see amazing sites in America continued, we stopped at the Erie Canal.  An amazing feat, dug mostly by the Irish with the incentive of whiskey, in 1820's and completed in 1825.  This canal allowed goods to be transported through the Great Lakes out to the Atlantic Ocean or vice versa. It created an economic boom for New York, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin. And was the inspiration of for "Low Bridge, Everybody Down".

“Slowly I turn, step by step, inch by inch.”

  • by desiertog

“Where to next?” has become one of my favorite questions and it all started in Dayton, Ohio. We originally planned on heading to West Virginia and south from there. But, as you may recall, there was some crazy weather and a barrage of hurricanes were hitting the south and southeastern parts of the country.

Daisy Barn Campground, NY

Daisy Barn Campground, NY

  • by Garrett Tershel

We stayed here so we could visit Niagara Falls, it is about 20 - 30 mins away. This was a clean well run campground. Sites are a good size, ours was a little bigger because it was the first on the line. We have a 34' travel trailer that we parked without a problem. This campground is right on Lake Ontario and on a clear day can see Canada. There is a lot of open space and had a relaxed atmosphere.

Niagara Power Company Visitor's Center

Niagara Power Company Visitor's Center

  • by Garrett Tershel

This was a great little place we found on a brochure.  The Niagara Power Company generates the largest amount of hydroelectric power in the country.  The damn has a visitors center and museum.  It is very well done.  I wasn't expecting much and was very surprised.  I was so busy playing with the exhibits I didn't take many pictures. Oh and it is FREE, yep!

Water, Water, everywhere

Water, Water, everywhere

Travel Trailer (TT) living is new to us so there is a bit of a learning curve: Is that sound normal? Is the air conditioner working right? Did you spill water in the kitchen? Who spilled water by the sink? Why is there water under the sink?! UHGH!!
