October 20 & 21, 2008 In Pennsylvania

OCT. 20, Monday

A sunny day greeted us at 7:30 a.m. I got dress and went to visit with Gilles and Lise while Val got dressed. We said our goodbyes to Lise as she had to leave for an appointment by 9 a.m. After this, we put everything away and unhooked all the hardware such as hoses, power and internet cable. Hooked the truck and pulled into the street and by 10:30 a.m. we were ready to leave. We said our goodbyes to Gilles and Anthony (their son)
We hit the road and eventually made our way to Hwy 55 south, crossed the border with no problems and no search and were on I-91 by 11:30 after a 15 minutes delay at the border. We found Vermont very beautiful and scenic. We stopped for fuel in Ascutney, a town built in 1777. We took on 25 gallons @ 3.799 ( I was running on fumes, I swear) then went through Massachusetts and headed West on I-90 then south on 202 to Southwick. We stopped at Veronique and Stephan’s place ( my niece) and spent the night there. We had a very nice visit and went out for dinner. They have 2 girls who are marvelous and spunky! We hit the bed by 10:30 p.m.

We got up at 7:30 and after breakfast and saying our goodbyes to everyone, we went south on Hwy 202 by 9:30 a.m. We drove through Connecticut, a very small State, and after a fuel stop where we took on 15 Gal. @ 3.959, we were in New-York State in no time on I-84. We continued to Pennsylvania where we turned south on Hwy 209 and followed the Delaware River.
We arrived at our night destination in Brodheadsville at a “P.A.” park named Silver creek campground. We have WIFI here so I was able to download this. It’s really windy, gusting to 30 mph at times but we are cozy warm.
