This recent trip was sited "way back east" and may not be of broad interest on WTW.  That said, I commonly see western tags on campers on this side of the US so thinking some may be interested.  Here is the trip overview and a link to a full report and lots of photos over on EP. 

 

Overview:

 

The hot and muggy dog days of August in Northern Virginia had me dreaming of cooler areas up North. Time had come to do some vehicle based roaming & exploring and enjoy vast forested areas, logging roads, cool clear rivers and of course Lobster Rolls!

The basic plan would be a loop routing up to Maine, then mosey west staying near the Canadian border to the Thousand Islands area of NY, then homeward via I-81 over a period of 24 days:

  • Depart NOVA and do a transit overnight in the Delaware Water Gap Recreation Area.
  • Two nights on Cape Cod.
  • Two nights in the southern coast area near Freeport Maine.
  • Two nights middle coastal area near Desert Island/Acadia NP Maine.
  • Two nights interior of Maine near Millinocket Maine.
  • Route westward enjoying northern New Hampshire and Vermont over 8 days.
  • Four days enjoying the Adirondack Park and the Thousand Islands area in NY.

My son Ryan would be joining me for the first 5 nights, then he would fly home and my daughter Laura would fly in and enjoy the next 4 nights. We used the Portland Maine airport for the air logistics. The rest of the trip it would be just me and OZY, my ACD.

Enjoy & safe travels!

Looks like a nice trip.
I grew up in the Philly area did a lot of visiting around the east but only one time into NE.

Back in 2005 drove back east after mom died to take care of things.

Spent a week upper NY,Vt. and Mass.Took in a pre Thanksgiving Arlo show at the church.

 

NE is a beautiful area ,especially in the fall with all the color.

 Thanks for posting.
