In July my husband and I took the RV up to New Hampshire. I didnt want to drive through Washington DC or NYC. So we went up through the west side of Virginia, pass my college RadFord, and then up to Maryland, West Virginia and Pa. It was a long drive and I had made a reservation at a RV park and paid for it. So once again we were driving in the dark to get to the site. The lights on my RV suck and thats putting it nicely. After this trip I knew I had to take care of this problem.
So when we got home I ordered new headlights off the internet.
This picture is taken on the inside.
Anyway I got this one installed without any problems. I tried to put the other one in and it wont go it. That is what the above picture is taken from. Its not sliding back correctly. I think I figured out what the problem is.
Anyway, on with the trip. We stopped at an RV park in Pa. I had read the reviews on-line and they werent very good. It said people were noisy especially the people who live there year round. They said the spots were very small and you couldnt really open up your slides. But I decided to go anyway because it was a good meeting spot so meet up with my friend.
We got to the place in the dark. The campers, who were next to us and long term campers, we all very helpful. Offering to move their cars and help us back in. We got backed in and set up for the night.
The next day my friend came for a visit. She is the person who introduced Lou and I. I worked with her at the children's hospital and Lou was her neighbor. We became good friends and I was at their house all the time. She was married and had a kid. When I didnt have anyone to spend Christmas with, she invited me to spend it with them.
It was so nice to meet up and talk. It was like old times. So now we are planning a trip together for next summer.
So the first part of the trip took us 10 hours. Then we stopped for 24 hours. The next morning I woke up with a horrible migraine. I couldnt do anything but lay there trying not to vomit. Lou couldnt even start getting the RV ready to pack up because I hadnt shown how to do anything. I was worried we were going to have to the Urgent care down the street. I felt so bad. I also thought we might have to spend another day at the RV park. But several hours later I was better and off we went.
So another 10 hours on the road and we made it to my sisters place. The reason we took the RV was so I could bring some of the dogs. Most of the time is was cool in NH and I didnt need to use the air conditioners. At the end of the week it was in the 90's but because there was no humidity, it felt great!!
Most of the trip was spent just hanging out at the house. My brother and his family came. My daughter came for a couple of days at the end of the week. All of my sisters family was there. We had a good time.
All the dogs took turns going on the kayak's. The first time I Zoey, she climbed to the front and fell off. Lucky, I just called her and she swam back to me.
My sister and my husband worked on putting these rocks in front of the dock.
My mom and my sister started last summer.
The dogs had lots of fun, I think.
There was a mink living under the dock. I saw it the first morning I was there. Lou was sitting on the dock and I was on the dock, that was on the water where the boat is. It gets light early in New Hampshire like at 5am. Im mean light light. Crazy but good for someone like me who gets up early. But there wasnt enough light for a good picture of the mink.
The last day we were there, we went to the Castle in the Clouds. It was really close to my sisters house. There was tons of hiking trails. If I knew this place was so close , we would have taken the dogs there every day!!
We started the 2 day drive on Sunday. This time we didnt stop for 24 hours, just over night. We stayed at the same RV place and there was hardly anyone there this time. So we got a nice big spot.
It was a lot of driving. It was ok to me but Lou said he didnt ever want to do it again. He told me next year I could fly. LOL
