Really taking my time heading north. Only drove 230 miles before stopping for the night. Since I normally consider 500 miles a moderate day, this wasn't a long drive.
It was cool and wet, so I decided to check into a cheap hotel. We've paid almost as much for one of the campgrounds we stayed in recently. The hotel gave me a 10% discount for being over 60. I'm going to use the heck out of my old man privileges. The place isn't fancy, but all I need is a clean room, a good bed and a hot shower.
The weather turned cool and wet, so I decided not to spend another night in the campground. It is supposed to warm up,so we are looking forward to the next two nights camping in Virginia. Normally I'd take a more inland route, but we are exploring new things this year.
I also happen to have a cousin who lives along the Virgina coast. It's been years since we had a chance to ge together. At one time most of my relatives were within a day's easy drive. Now we are scattered all over the planet. Social media is not a substitue for being together in person.
I got a bit of shock this year to discover one of my uncles had passed away and it was months before I found out about it. At one time we used to see each other at least several times a year. Then life happens and people never get together. With that in mind, I think it's worth taking a different route north to see family. My cousin and her husband have children I've yet to meet. It's time they found out about their crazy cousin.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
