Heading to Connecticut

We are heading to Connecticut today,October 22,2011.

Since check-out time at the campground in Rhode Island was at 10 a.m. and our drive to the next campground was less than an hour away and check-in time at the campground in Connecticut wasn’t until 3 p.m.,  Gary went to the campground office this morning to request a late check-out.

Gary returned with a favorable response – we could stay until 1 p.m.; however, there was a cost.  Gary informed Buddy that he would have to marry the young park ranger in order for us to have a late check-out.  Gary reassured Buddy that the young park ranger was cute.  Buddy was not amused.


With a late check-out time, Belle and Buddy had time to cover several subjects and complete many assignments before our departure.

No one was ready to leave Fisherman’s Memorial State Park in Narragansett, RI, and everyone wished we were staying longer.

However, on a road trip adventure across the USA, it was time to hit the road again.

Our short drive to Connecticut was uneventful.


The skies threatened rain, but fortunately my Knight didn’t have to tow our big rig in the rain.

Gary and I found big rig friendly campground in East Lyme, CT.   We are currently dwelling at Aces High RV Park.

As the name of this campground suggests, casinos are plentiful around here.  Click here if you missed the post about Connecticut and Casinos.

After set-up was complete, we took our first walk around our new neighborhood.

We found the campground clean and spacious.

Aces High RV Park is surrounded by hills covered with trees sporting various fall colors.  I was beginning to wonder if we would pass through the entire Northeast without seeing the colors of fall.

I suppose we can check off our first short-term goal for our road trip which was traveling through the Northeast in the Fall.  Unfortunately, Hurricane Irene stripped most trees bare before the leaves had a chance to showcase their fall colors.

With our first road trip goal met, I suppose our family needs a new goal . . .

I will keep you posted as I am able.

We do have free internet access at this campground.  However according to our log-in instructions if we have excessive use of the internet, we may be restricted or removed from free access.

We are staying at Aces High RV Park for four nights,
so we’ll see what happens.
