It was unfortunate that our friends Mike & Carol couldn't join us on our last weekend. We did get one last visit in over lunch our last week in town. Goodbyes are never easy...more so when you don't know when you'll see each other again.
Monday 9/27 we pulled out of VT Maplewoods just a bit before 8am and headed westward. Our first night was at Green Lakes State Park south of Syracuse NY. We were in the Rolling Hills Section in site 108, electric only and a gravel site. Since rain was expected we didn't want one of the grass sites. As an overnight stop it was great, there is a small lake but with the rain we didn't get a chance to take the trail around it.
Tuesday rain was in the forecast so we decided to make it another travel day. Thankfully what rain we had was never too bad. About mid afternoon we reached West Branch State Park in Ravenna OH. We've been there numerous times now and ended up in site 87 which we had the last time we were there back in April. With the Ohio State Parks Rewards Card we were eligible for a free night...yeah free is great. The local Italian restaurant that we usually go to has closed...owner retired, so the only thing we did in town was get filled up with diesel.
One of expenditures this past summer was an auxiliary tank, Dave opted to go with a 40 gallon tank with a tool box. This gives us the ability travel a bit further between fill ups. With the fill up in OH we knew we could make it to Sullivan IL with out refueling.
After a hectic week we finally have time to breathe and relax for a few days. It hasn't sunk in yet that we're done in VT and now home is really wherever we park it. The things we've done and learned over the last few years have all been leading to this adventure. In three weeks we'll be in Mesa where we'll be workamping in a mega 55+ resort, so for now we're on vacation and out camping.
Until next time...
