We have a 9-day trip to southern Nevada (Echo Bay/Valley of Fire) in early April and another 9-day trip to southern Utah (Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab) in mid-September. In between those we have a few closer to home - Washington coast and central Oregon. Lots to see out west...

We discovered Lake Champagne Campground in Randolph, VT last year and fell in love with it.

We think it's a great location for Burlington, Stowe, etc. and we'll probably also take a day trip to Montreal. It also close to many of the Scenic Byways.

Thanks for your reply! That's very interesting, I was just telling DW about Lake Champagne CG and Moose River CG in St. Johnsbury, VT a couple of weeks ago. Both seem highly rated. Glad to here you like it. We will definitely have to try it out.

Up till now we've primarily stayed at VT State Parks with our pop-up. We just purchased our first TT in November and are looking to venture out.

We will also hit up Winhall Brook CG in South Londonderry, VT a couple of times this summer. We went there with one of our friends that have a large 5er and kids the same age as ours last summer and liked it a lot. It is very similar to a State Park with large sites and trees, some sites have water and electric unlike the state parks. No sewer on sites but they do have a dump station. It is run by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

One of our favorite state parks in VT is Button Bay in Vergennes. We will most likely return there again in June & August.

We are also going to try and venture into NH possible in the White Mountains, RI and MA this summer.

Any suggestions for campgrounds in Western MA?

We will be going to Crown Point Campground in Perkinsville, VT for 4 days around the 4th of July, then in early August going to Winhall Brook Campground in South Londonderry, Vt. Other potential trips are to the seacoast area of New Hampshire in late July and maybe going back to Sugar Ridge RV park in Danville, VT. We went there last year and is a great campground. All these trips depend upon work schedules and other events.

Nothing big or far from home scheduled yet. Easter weekend we will be at our local state park, Jordan Lake. End of April we are attending the NCFCRV Spring Rally at Raleigh Oaks RV Resort. Memorial Day will be here at home, as the Hot air ballon festival is less than a mile from the house so we will be watching them from the front porch. The TT may end up being a guest house.

Two years ago we decided to take one big trip each year, along with a lot of shorter weekend and holiday trips. We wanted to do this before my daughter got to old and maybe not want to hang out with us so much. Our long trip is always at the end of summer, as my daughter goes to Camp Lake Hubert in Brainerd MN for the first part. This year we are heading east for the very first time. Our goal is to spend 5 days in Massachusetts on Cape Cod. On the trip there and back we will have extended stopovers in Sault St Marie, Niagara Falls, and Chicago. Should be fun. Maybe Chicago not so much, but my daughter wants to see the windy city.

After we get our 195 next week.. off to Arizona and New Mexico in April-May..

Maybe here near the Allagash in August for the 50th anniversary of that waterway.

And in July ..Ontario. Rossport to kayak for a week.

We've really thought about that 2000 watt generator for a/c and wonder if we will have to use A/C in AZ and NM..

Here in Maine everyone boondocking never uses it anytime in the summer. Its often in the 60's for a high.

So this is all a grand adventure
2012 Honda Ridgeline
2016 195 RB

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

We'll do a repeat of last year and head to the Pacific Northwest for 10 to 12 weeks during the summer to escape the summer heat here in the desert. Most of the time we'll spend in Oregon and Washington, but we might take a jaunt into British Columbia as well.
