We stayed at the Mount Desert Narrows near Bar Harbor, Maine. We toured the island, ate some lobster, took a 3 1/2 boat ride to see several lighthouses, and kayaked in the bay, seeing the sunset over the water.
Me & my Wife
After 4 days we departed Maine and headed to Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
We stayed in another KOA in the middle of Boston and Cape Cod for three days. This reduced our driving time when visiting the areas. The first night we drove on Cape Cod all the way to Providence town.
The second day we visited Boston. We toured the city and ate lunch at Cheers.
Spent a day at Plymouth to learn about the landings
Third Day we visited Salem to learn about the witch hunts
We departed west to avoid New Jersey and NYC.
Decided to make a quick run out to Indiana to be with my mother on her birthday. Ended up bringing her back with us to Virginia.
Stayed in another KOA overnight to let everyone unwind. Departed again in the morning.
Started south on 77 and had a rear tire blow out. This is the second in the last month. They were Goodyear G159's that I just learned last week about them being recalled for RV use. Had them inspected prior to this trip and was told they would be fine for another year or two. The remaining one's are getting replaced this Saturday.
Damaged the exhaust. This will now be the second time I've had to replace it from a blowout.
It took 3 1/2 hours for our roadside service to arrive. Luckily I was off of the highway onto a turnoff. Genny started, AC on, so I took a nap.
Tire changed and we are back on the road.
Back to our home state
We were gone for 14 days. Drove 3,865 miles, drove through 14 states and visited Canada. Minus the tire, we had zero problems which was more than my friends RV fared. Gas mileage in the mountains averaged 7-8 mph and 9 mpg on the flats. I drove at a steady 61 mph for the majority of the trip.
Maine was the best. I didn't care a lot of Massachusetts and Vermont was also worth the visit.
Hope you enjoyed the pics taken by my wife.
