I was going to tip our tour guide & asked if he could make change for a $100.00 bill & he said something like: " You won't have any change coming ".

Actually, he seemed so relieved to get me out of his car that he ran off before I got my billfold out...

Thanks again Tim & Mary!!!!!!!

Better check yer wallet anyway - just for good measure. Tim took that shoe off a horse that ran by him at Bryce. You were there!

Steve, it never ceases to amaze me when we visit the Civil War memorial how they could stand 100 yards away or closer and shoot musket balls at each other. Those musket balls only had a general direction of travel because there was no rifling in muskets, just a smooth bore. It caused a lot of lost limbs during that war. I hope you have done or are going to do Gettysburg.

I know about the lovely CG near Gillette Stadium in Foxboro (near Boston)
That CG in Foxboro is most likely Normandy Farms. I hear it is nice but make sure you get reservations.

If you are in Rhode Island, look at Firsherman's Memorial State Park. Nice little RV park there and it is 325 miles to Bangor, ME. Newport, RI has a couple CG's but no pets. Newport is a nice little city and especially interesting is a audio tour of the mansions. Quite a bit of history there.

I stayed there last year, in July or August, can't remember which. The place is so huge I'm sure if you just showed up desperate for a site they'd find something for ya. There is an overflow area w/o hookups as well. I think there's like over 1,000 sites there! Lots have tree coverage, I didn't feel squeezed in there either, which is one thing that makes it nice. It's on an old family farm so there's tons of space.

Y'havin' fun yet? So glad y'all made it! We will catch up with you soon.

Tonight we are near Ithaca, NY, at Pinecreek Campground. Mostly back-ins, and pull-throughs all taken for now, but we are safely backed in, level, & have a little shade. Cheaper here than at Niagara Falls!

A former clogging friend of ours teaches music at Ithaca College, which is why we are here. She & her DH are coming out tomorrow, and we will all chew the fat and then go have dinner. They aren't camper types, she says. Maybe we can recruit them to the lifestyle. Y'think? I doubt it!

Wheels are great, aren't they? We get to go all sorts of places & catch up with folks. In this case, I'm sure it was an out-of-the-blue surprise.

Sue, Denise would like to know the parameters of such a swap and she would be interested in participating if we are at a gathering where one is organized.

I'd be interested too. Will we have a theme?

Ha gang, would have responded sooner but I'm parked next to Dave so the only time I can post is while he sleeps, he sucks up all the wifi!

Thanks for the kind words Richard, we had a great time.
Elizabeth, Mary said no quilt shops but several yarn shops, but then again, there are plenty of yarns produced anytime Richard and Dave set together.
Looking forward to all the mutants headed this way cause I know the fun is just starting!
Later gater.

Camping with STMs for 2 weeks BEFORE the Maine event, making for 21 continuous days of pics, pokes, and blarney! My laugh muscles are tired.
Yesterday Nola and I took a quick trip to Saint George and Green Point while the children frolicked in Saint John on a quest for snow globes.
