Tuesday, August 2, 2016, Jamaica State Park, Jamaica, VT - 122.3 Miles, 1040.8 Miles for the Trip

A bit longer than yesterday driving mostly on NH 112 (some sections were pretty rough) and some on US 4 to Jamaica, VT. We drove around the park & selected sites 16 & 17. I got the better part of the deal since I was behind Don & had to take 16. It is an almost level back in with lots of room and a wide entrance. I managed to stay hooked to the truck by backing on a pair of leggo blocks under the trailer wheels. Don got 17, a far less level site that required unhooking to get anywhere near level, with a narrower entrance. If you check the site photos, you will also notice that Don's site has no sun and lots of greenery. I have enough that the solar panels are cranking out 2 amps. Both are back in dry sites for $20.00 per night with a nearby bathroom with hot showers ($.50 for 5 minutes).

Site 17 Site 16

We passed the Vermont Country Store in Weston on the way to the campground. I've been getting their catalog once or twice a year for 20 years since I bought a hand cranked doorbell - the type that you spin a handle on the outside that goes through the door to the bell mounted inside, and is impossible to find anywhere else I looked. I needed the sound for a couple of shows, and it is a sound that is almost impossible to duplicate using any other type of bell. It is probably still in the sound effects cabinet at the college.

While I have 2 bars of AT&T at the site, there is no Verizon, even with the amp & external antenna. There is a repeater for Verizon at the entrance station that covers a 50' circle around it, so I walked to it to post today's page. I found a pretty good WiFi signal, so I used that rather than the Jetpack.

Dinner will be a garlic parmesan cheese sauce with meatballs & sausage on spaghetti with some fruit cups.

Until next time -
