Tuesday, May 11, 2021 - Pine Hollow Campground, Pownal, VT, 210.7 miles, 210.7 Miles For the Trip

I did my morning walk a bit early at 7:30, packed the rest of the truck & trailer, ate breakfast and gave the birds their last feeder filling for the week. The blue jays are feasting this week - about 15 of them. They go through 2 gallons of black oil sunflower seed each day. I'd starve them but I like to feed the smaller birds so I keep refilling the feeders. They even eat the suet I leave for the woodpeckers.

Lots of Blue Jays

Since it is around 380 miles to the Chocorua Camping Village KOA where the Spring Fling is held, and I prefer to drive between 150 & 200 miles per day, I decided to break the trip into two days. We usually stay at the Broken Wheel campground in Petersburg, NY but they were not answering their phone or replying to emails to determine if they were open, so we went a couple of miles across the border into Vermont. Their web page now states they are going to open on May 7th, but we decided to try something new and made reservations at Pine Hollow. I'm in site 36 , a bit more expensive at $43.00 for a water & electric site (Broken Wheel was $36.00 in 2019). It is almost level side to side and dead level front to back, with a little gravel & mostly grass. I was able to leave the truck connected. The campground looks to be a seasonal set up, with empty trailers already in at least half the sites. The owner said they are not actually open for the season, but in the process of opening. A pond or small lake with a central fountain behind the sites.

We is myself & Anne & Guido, friends that I often travel with and are in site 35 next door.

I arrived around 2:30 & the Guidos around 3:30. A little chilly out at 54°F and a bit of wind, but nice and warm in the trailer. I have both an AT&T & Verizon data connection, however the Verizon is stronger & faster so I'm using it.

After setting up I took a couple of photos of a Canada Goose family:

Mom Dad & the Kids

Dinner will be a shrimp something or other made by Anne.

Until Tomorrow -
