We made it to or traveled through a portion of Virginia, Maryland, New York (upstate and NYCish area), Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts Connecticut, New Jersey, and Delaware. The only state in the Northeast we did not get to was Rhode Island.


We made it safely back to North Carolina. It was an amazing two weeks. I’ll post some (probably a lot) more pics in the next day or so.


Even with as much I’ve flown in the Northeast, I never knew Maple Cream was something that existed prior to this road trip. It is absolutely delicious


Acadia National Park, Schoodic Peninsula portion.


Bar Harbor, Maine


Limlaw Family Maple Farm

We stopped at Limlaw Family Maple Farm in West Topsham, Vermont during our drive. We called ahead and Bruce & Ruth Limlaw were kind enough to open up for us and give us a tour.

Each tree will produce 10-20 gallons of sap, and it takes an average of 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of maple syrup.

Our view for the next few days in Maine. NC to Buffalo, NY Sunday night. Buffalo to Plattsburgh, NY on Tuesday. Plattsburgh, NY to Augusta, Maine yesterday. Augusta to Winter Harbor/Bar Harbor Maine via coastal Maine today.


Niagara Falls and Maid of the Mist boat ride.


As if that isn’t even traveling, I’ll be flying in Europe for 11 days the end of this month into July. 1 day of travel to and from Europe on each end, which means 8-9 days of flying in Europe. I have no idea where, which makes it even more exciting


Be prepared for lots of travel pics over the next few weeks. We leave this weekend for a 2 week road trip in New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and 5 nights in Bar Harbor, Maine. Driving back through Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
