Vermont Fall Foliage – Day 2

Tuesday, September 28, 2020 A quick visit to the Vermont Country Store, a few covered bridges, Woodstock and Grafton, Vermont. Yes, we wore masks. Everywhere. #TheVirusIsReal Skye’s from scratch pancakes and One GALLON of Vermont Maple Syrup Cows on Sawdust The Farm Peacham, VT My Roadster near the original house Taftsville Covered Bridge, VT Woodstock...

Vermont Fall Foliage – Day 1

Monday, September 28, 2020 553 Miles from Falls Church to Peacham, Vermont with one gas stop. Arrived at the farm and of course Skye cooked homemade apple cobbler because she went apple picking earlier in the day with her mom. That’s what everyone in Vermont does, apparently. The Milking Barn Brattleboro, Vermont Apple Cider Donuts... Continue Reading →

Day 10- New Jersey

July 1, 2020 I slept in a Hampton Inn last night and it was absolutely glorious. Not just because it was an actual bed with air-conditioning and a bathroom all to myself but it was only 12,000 Marriott Bonvoy points which is like so super cheap. A serious win on all fronts. Like everybody in... Continue Reading →

Day 8- The Outer Banks

June 29, 2020 I think Blackbeard WILLINGLY SURRENDERED and agreed (possibly suggested) to be shot five times, and stabbed many more, just to be finally rid of THE MOSQUITOES ON OCRACOKE ISLAND! 3 words: Deep. Woods. Off. Although a very lovely place, last night’s sleep did not go as well as one would expect in... Continue Reading →

Day 7- Ferry to Ocracoke Island

June 27, 2020 While waiting for my ferry this afternoon, I checked my odometer’s Trip setting. I have driven 1,669 miles since leaving my condo in Falls Church, Virginia a week ago. That doesn’t even count all the miles Rick put on his car when we were wandering Richmond, Charlottesville, Virginia Beach and Williamsburg together.... Continue Reading →

Day 6- Oak Island to the Outer Banks, NC

June 27, 2020 It took me three hours to get to my first lighthouse, on Oak Island, and I was already tired. At 3:15 in the morning, my rest stop turned into a disco when at least 8-9 cars packed with people showed up. All their plates....Florida. Apparently, they are bringing their Covid-infected bodies north.... Continue Reading →

Day 5- Savannah on North

June 26, 2020 I certainly got a free sauna treatment last night from sleeping in the car in the south. It’s much hotter than I expected. Nobody bothered me last night but tonight‘s rest area apparently is patrolled by police so I expect them to shoot me out at any time. I drove into Savannah... Continue Reading →

Day 2- Virginia Beach

June 23, 2020 For some ungodly reason, I woke up at 6am. Apparently, I was excited to go to the beach and get my first lighthouse pic. Rick rolled downstairs an hour later stunned at me hunkered down without coffee reading. Coffee, bagels, pack the car, 800 SPF applied and off we went. Located right... Continue Reading →

Planning for an Extended Road Trip

June 19, 2020 I was in junior high when I climbed Mount Whitney. It took us two miserable days to reach the 14,505 foot peak. I was with my friend's insane family. Seriously, they were completely nuts. I don't know what my parents were thinking allowing me to go off high into the Sierra with... Continue Reading →

Mapping The Lighthouses

June 17, 2020 Ok. There are quite a few more lighthouses than I expected. New Jersey, you brought your A-Game when prepping for nautical safety back in the day. 18 that I can actually get to without a boat. But Massachusetts, I stopped counting at 35+. You came to win! (If building lighthouses was a... Continue Reading →

A Dystopian Road Trip

June 15, 2020 I can't take it anymore. I have to get out of this apartment. 2020 sucks. This year, so far, has yielded a mid-January hysterectomy, two weeks later I flew to Hong Kong (for an adult tour) and was trapped with my group for one month on the NCL Westerdam in the South...
