Highway to Hell – Day 3

0800 Passed over the Erie Canal. Learned so much about its history.

0900 TBH, I did very little planning for this trip. Imagine my surprise as we went through the Adirondack region. So beautiful. The pictures can’t do it justice. Majestic.

1100 Driving the Thruway. Discussing how to clean our tanks so we can drink the water (bleach!), secure the coffee pot, and fix the awning. Meanwhile the boy draws custom monsters for us.


1300 1724 feet above sea level

1400 Walmart. What a mix bag. I get everything I need in one stop for a good price. But now everyone across the country wears the same clothes and eats the same food.

1500 Lighthouse Liquors. Yesterday I was tricked into buying “diluted” vodka and couldn’t figure out why I was so sober.

1730 Ten lanes of bumper to bumper traffic outside Boston. As I ponder if the campground will be nice for the children, what sites to see, and do I get a tattoo?

And once we hit Salem the blogging stops. We are at Winter Park campground (what a terrible name!) after three days in the car, Wolf man picked the song for the video. (Which won’t load again! Check my Facebook!)
