Hiking in Acadia National Park – Trust the Journey

When traveling cross-county, many of us map out our general route and drop some pins along our “bucket list” of favorite spots to see. 
 
Some of us are planners, where the whole journey needs to first be mapped out and planned. Others like Michael and I are more of a “just wing it” type. We generally have a good idea of our plans between driving, taking care of our furry pupster Kaliki and stocking the RV with supplies.   Later we figure out where we are going to stay, without micro-managing our daily agenda – yeah, we’re the “wing it” couple. 
So on this trip heading to the far North to York, Maine we decided that since we were only a few hundred miles to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, we continued our northerly sojourn.
To make the most of our time in the Acadia National Park, we rose early to assure we would be able to find parking for our 25 foot RV (large parking spots are few and far between). That said, the park offers a nice transit system free of charge that can take visitors around the 27-mile loop, complete with hop-on and off privileges.
We jumped off at Sand Beach and on the spur of the moment, decided to try The Great Head Trail.

2 Hours in Boston

Video 32 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

We are “back on track” with our Around the USA in 90 Days segment. We left off in the beautiful state of Massachusetts. We will pick up again in the Boston, Cambridge area. One thing you need to decide when you are traveling is how much do you plan for and how much do you just, “wing it”? For us generally our motto has been, “anyway the wind blows”. So here in Boston after working out the parking situation we took a bike ride through town. As we left Boston we stopped by Salem for a drone flight before moving into Maine. Coming next…… Lobster in York Beach heading to Bar Harbor. (Ba Haba)

Lake Havasu, Arizona – 2020 Hot Air Balloon Festival

While winds prevented most hot air balloons from taking flight on Saturday 1/11, on the 12th, several dozen balloon crews took to the skies on Sunday with spectacular weather over Lake Havasu, Arizona. Whether shooting video from the London Bridge where the hot air balloons get up close and personal, the channel channel waterway, downtown or near the Crazy Horse RV park, the views were fantastic!

Plimouth Village Plantation Living History – Settler reenactment 400 years ago

Video 30 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

Following up on Part I of our Plimouth, Massachusetts tour of the living history plantation, in Part II Grace (a descendant from the Mayflower) goes back 400 years to converse with period actors portraying the life of Pilgrim discussing their life, joys and hardships. Hmm, at first glance being an early settler with adventure and freedoms sounded GREAT… but their journey got far worse than today’s First World Problems!

Plimouth Village – Lives of Pilgrim Settlers and Native American Indians

Video 29 of our Series, Around the USA in 90 Days!

Sailing on merchant ships in the winter from Plymouth, Devon (UK) to what later became Massachusetts would be hard enough. But being unprepared for poor soil, squatting on Indian land, disease and famine meant 2 out of 3 didn’t make it during the initial years. So what’s the good news? Thousands more of your fellow Englishmen would be lusting for adventure and fortune, coming behind you to settle in the new frontier. But wait, there’s more – then there were the Dutch, French and the Spanish to contend with as well… and their religions and edicts from their leaders!
