Blueberry Hill in New Hampshire

Since returning from this summer's western jaunt, we've not used the truck camper much. We spent two weeks in VA working with the siblings cleaning out mom's condo for sale. Two weeks of way too hot weather, daily big thunderstorms, humidity enough to need a gallon of water a day - all reasons we sure do enjoy our home in Maine. We accomplished what we wanted as a family to ready the condo so even the heat was worth it.

We've just returned from Blueberry Hill Inn and Campground in North Stratford, NH. One of our truck camper friends lives nearby and found this 8 spot campground behind a B&B. It's always a great drive from Maine up into the western mountains and through the White Mountain National Forest.

We've spent so much time in our Host camper this summer, it is really easy to set it up. This time we put out the rear awning and also set up the popup tent at the end of the awning. Rob did the same so we had a big dry area during all the rain storms.

Mike brought up a 22 pound sirloin roast, fresh corn on the cob and steamer clams. Stoney brought up Mike's rotissier grill and two turkey fryer pots for the clams and veggies. Here's Mike checking the roast. It was fabulous! What a perfect summer meal with friends, beverages and a lot of chatter around the campfire.

Family Times (Jayne and Rob with their dog Lacey) set up next to us. They are really enjoying their brand new Eagle Cap truck camper. The amount of storage in this model is incredible. Rob worked with the tall steps into the Eagle Cap and built an interim step so it is easy to get into.

We're still hoping to get up to Kingsbrae Gardens in St. Andrews, New Brunswick for a camping weekend. In September we'll meet up with about 35 other truck campers for a rally in Carlisle PA and then a final small group meet in October in Salem, MA. Next week the camper goes in for re-caulking and a checkup. Love the Host and hope to keep it on the road for a long time.
