Urban TCing

End of August we went down to mid Massachusettes to meet up with several TC friends. Where did we go? No - not a boondock and not a campground but the urban home of a TC couple we meet up with often. Four TCs filled the driveway and around the corner on the street. Jayne and Rob were gracious hosts and treated us all to a weekend of hot tub, pool, blongo, and way too much food, laughter and sharing our travels. As Jayne said, TCers are pretty easy guests - they bring their own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and usually a lot of food and drink. Great time was had by all. Thanks again!

Catching up on August summer trips

Been a long time since I've caught the blog up to date. We've had a busy summer with mostly local trips around New England and over into New Brunswick.

Mid August we drove up Route 1 through the small coastal towns in Maine and overnighted in Belfast at a seaside campground. Lucked into a waterfront site due to a cancellation. Cooked steak and sat with feet up looking out at the bay after several long walks along the beach.

Next day, we continued up the coast, then the "Airline" road from Bangor up to Calais. Easy border crossing and then down to one of our favorite places, St. Andrews, New Brunswick. Once again we walked the 20 acre gardens at Kingsbrae Gardens and then the tiny unspoiled town. Our camp for that night was at the Kiwanis Campground which is right on the Bay of Fundy with those spectacular tides.

Relaxing drive home and a day to clean up the camper, looking forward to the fall North East Truck Campers Jamboree in N. Hudson, NY.
