Galetta, Ontario

Well, we are in the village of Galetta, about 40 minutes west of Ottawa, the capital city of Canada. This is where Ruth's father lives, and this is where we are set up for the next month until we head south again in September.

Plattsburgh, New York

We left Burlington, VT around 10:30am and headed for Plattsburgh, N.Y. It's only 35 miles  (56 kms) but there's a ferrry ride across Lake Champlain and the roads are all secondary so the trip took almost two hours.

Burlington, Vermont

We left the Maple Syrup farm yesterday morning and headed for the town of Montpelier. We had originally thought about finding somewhere to overnight there, but the town is not designed for RV's, and there's very little suitable parking.

Goodrich's Maple Farm near Cabot, Vermont

We got up early yesterday morning, and drove right away to Cabot, Vermont. We figured there might be traffic because of the Cabot Dairy and so we wanted to arrive early. We had never been there and didn't know what to expect.

Saint Johnsbury, Vermont

Yesterday morning, we took the little car into Littleton, NH to try and find a better spot for Sherman so we could take the bikes for a ride, but didn't have any luck. Much of the town is built onto the side of a hill and there isn't a lot of suitable spots to park a motorhome in town.

Littleton, New Hampshire

We left the Apple Hill Campground yesterday morning, and drove the 6 miles or so into the town of Littleton. Found a free parking lot downtown behind the community center, and close enough to the library to be able to use their wifi internet from the inside of the motorhome.

Hike up Mount Washington

We were up at 5:00am Sunday morning. Made it to the National Forest trailhead parking lot near the Mount Washington cog railway, and began our hike at about 6:30am.

Apple Hill Campground, Bethlehem, New Hampshire

Kevin and Ruth staying at a campground? And it’s a private campground? And at $35 a night!! What’s up with that…!!??

Attitash Ski Resort, White Mountains National Forest, N.H.

It was another baking hot day. At 10:00am we wandered over to the Mount Washington Science Center. The lady at the front said we could bring Whiskey in, and her immediate boss had said that well behaved dogs on a leash are allowed, especially since it was baking hot outside.

North Conway area (day 3)

Yesterday was a relax day. Surprised that our muscles weren't a bit more sore from our day at the adventure park. We went and did some grocery shopping in the morning, and just hung out at the motorhome in the afternoon.

Cranmore Mountain Adventure Park

We had too much fun yesterday. Despite me spending an hour on the phone with the credit card companies and banks to report my lost cards. But other than that, we had a blast! (Warning...LOTS of pictures!)

North Conway, New Hampshire

Interesting day yesterday. We left the horse farm before 9:00am and headed into New Hampshire. "Live Free or Die". You gotta love New Hampshire. And, no sales tax and no income tax. Like I said, you gotta love New Hampshire!

Casco, Maine (day 2)

We relaxed for most of the day, until about 3:00pm when we left Whiskey behind to guard Sherman, and we took the little car into Portland, Maine.

Monday, July 18, 2011

Carousel Horse Farm, near Casco, Maine

We left the winery yesterday morning and drove on the back roads to Freeport, Maine. Freeport's claim to fame is the headquarters of L.L. Bean, and their factory outlet store.

Savage Oakes Winery near Union, Maine

We left Acadia National Park around 7:00 am yesterday and drove up the town of Ellsworth where we stopped at the Home Depot parking lot where they have free wi-fi. Then went across the road to Walmart and did some shopping.

Seawall Campground, Acadia National Park

What a great day we had yesterday. Perfect weather. An excellent morning hike. A nice afternoon bike ride. Cold beer. Each other.

Acadia National Park - Bar Harbor, Maine

Yesterday morning, we drove from Jasper Beach to Acadia National Park and got ourselves set up at the Seawall Campground in Acadia National Park. After lunch, we took the little car for a drive into Bar Harbor. We've never been here before, but we know that the whole area is a popular tourist destination, so we wanted to see what the fuss was all about.

Jasper Beach, Maine (day 2)

Had a totally relaxing day yesterday, didn't really do anything. Went for a walk on the beach in the morning. Ruth made some spaghetti sauce yesterday afternoon for today.

Jasper Beach, Maine

When we arrived in Machias yesterday morning, it rained quite a bit. We parked up across from the laundromat, and I spent the morning on the internet while Ruth did some wash. It cleared up though, and we went for a walk around town.

Machias, Maine

We crossed into Maine yesterday around 1:30pm on a beautiful warm summer day. No problems at the border, and in fact the border guards even seemed like they were in a pretty good mood.

Alma, New Brunswick (day 2)

Had a beautiful day yesterday, with clear blue skies and temperature about 25C (77F). Went for a 7.5 km (4.7 mile) hike in the morning, and then another walk around the third National park campground in the afternoon.

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Alma, New Brunswick

Yesterday was another short driving day. In fact, we had our drive for the day finished by 7:30am! As soon as we got up, we drove the 24 kms (15 miles) into the town of Alma.

Saturday, July 9, 2011

Riverside-Albert, New Brunswick

We left Rick and Elaines place just before lunch yesterday and made our way down to Hopewell Rocks. We were at Hopewell Rocks three years ago, but the tide was in at the time, and we wanted to see it with the tide out.

Friday, July 8, 2011

Riverview, New Brunswick

Well, we just never know where we're going to end up from one day to the next.  We had expected to be just outside of Fundy National Park last night but we received an email yesterday morning that changed our plans for the day.

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Truro, Nova Scotia

We left early yesterday morning and headed for Halifax airport. Nope, not flying anywhere, I just had to put in the application for my U.S. visa waiver renewal.

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

We're off!

We're off on another road trip! We're up early this morning and heading for Ontario.

I'm not big on most charities. First of all, it's probably very easy to find a member of your own family who could use the money more, so why not help out someone you actually know? And, I think that in a lot of cases, registered charities waste a lot of money on administration or fundraising activities, or worse yet it simply goes into somebody's pocket.  How does this relate to Travel with Kevin and Ruth? I'll explain...

June expenses

I'm not including any more advertising income, because essentially we don't have any! Most of you know that we got shut down by the Google Adsense people. And the new Chitika ads have been a waste of time.

Happy Independence Day!

First of all, Happy Independence day to all of our American friends! I am wearing my once a year t-shirt for you all today!

A nice summer day

It is so nice that summer has arrived in the Annapolis Valley. Finally, shorts and t-shirt weather!

Back in Canning, Nova Scotia

Well we had a fun Canada Day yesterday! We got up early and drove from the national park to Paula and Jerry's and picked up our little car. Then we took Sherman to Canning and parked up at our couchsurfing friend Tracey's house.

Happy Canada Day

For anybody who cares, it's Canada's birthday today. Good enough reason for a nationwide party, I suppose, while the Americans will have their big event on Monday. Personally, I'm not a very patriotic Canadian, so it's not a big deal to me.
