Monday, August 1, 2016, Lost River Valley Campground, North Woodstock, NH - 95.5 Miles, 918.5 Miles for the Trip

We left Maine, and headed into New Hampshire. Much of the drive was on NH 16. We stopped in Jackson to photograph a covered bridge.

My suggestion is to avoid NH 16 if you are in a hurry, or frustrated by stop & go traffic. We didn't see any reason other than a couple of traffic lights, but it was a slow crawl through a couple of small towns. Eventually, we hit the Kancamagus Highway (NH 112) through the White Mountain National Forest, and the traffic cleared. a pretty drive, although hilly. There was light rain most of the drive, including while we set up the trailers in the site.

For anyone using the coordinates from the AllStays Camp & RV app to find the Lost River Valley Campground, they are off by a couple of miles - the campground is a couple miles west of the indicated location. Of course that might be because it is "lost". In any case, we are in a pair of fairly level, back in water & electric sites next to each other - 43 & 41 at $35.00 for the night.

While the rain has stopped, we will probably have a microwave cooked indoor meal because the sites are heavily shaded with trees that are still dripping enough that cooking outside wouldn't be much fun. Anne is putting together a shrimp & pasta dish.

Until next time -
