Day 27 – White Mountain Wonderland Part 2

Day 27 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

Outside of waking up in a house and going to bed in a house, today was like a bad day at the office when the task list remains untouched due to other challenges that arise throughout the day.  The good news:  an irritating day in the White Mountains is still better than a good day in the office!

From the outset, today entailed a significant amount of driving.  The end of yesterday’s drive took me to the northern part of New Hampshire which is how I scored the house in northwestern Maine.  But today, Reader’s Digest scenic drive through the White Mountains began in Littleton, NH around the middle of the state and headed east to Conway, NH.   From Conway, I turned southeast to stay with my stepdad’s cousin George in Prouts Neck, Maine, just south of Portland.  I basically completed a giant U-turn (albeit with the U on its side).

Day 25 – New Hampshire Highlights

Day 25 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

The night at Elmore State Park was extremely windy.  I wondered if the wind were ever strong enough that the pop-top on VANilla would fall down on me or if the van would just get blown over due to being so top heavy.  Fortunately I survived the night and prepared for a day in New Hampshire.
