New York and New Jersey: August 2014.

When we left from the west coast a few months ago, one of the motivating goals we told the kids was that we were going to see the Statue of Liberty. And finally now we are in New York City. Well, actually New Jersey but you know what I mean.

Rhode Island and Connecticut: August 2014.

We had a hard time figuring out exactly where we should go in Rhode Island. As some of you might know, we have a 2-nights-and-a-bite minimum for visiting states. We must stay for 2 nights and we also must eat at a local restaurant before we can count this state as one we have visited.

Massachusetts: August 2014.

Leaving Portsmouth, New Hampshire and entering Massachusetts, we knew we were getting ourselves into major metropolitan areas for awhile. This is pretty much the edge of the extremely dense population in the Northeast and we are not going to be getting out of it anytime soon. As much as we are not looking forward to that while towing an Airstream, we very much looked forward to visiting the cities and its landmarks.

Maine: August 2014.

Crossing in to Maine we took a lot of the smaller county roads and experienced some amazingly scenic countryside. There was a lot of road ahead of us since we were trying to get as close to Acadia National Park as possible and start there as a home base to do some exploring. We made out first pit stop at the little town of Harrison, Maine.

Crystal Lake from the sky. There is a giant sign at the park stating that this space is for residents and taxpayers only. We pay taxes! That counts, right?

New Hampshire: August 2014.

Heading into New Hampshire’s northern region, we really didn’t know what to expect. Luckily for us we know someone back in California who grew up in this state so we got to hit up our friend Sara for some recommendations.

Ohio: July 2014.

As we made our way out of Michigan, we continued our way east into the state of Ohio. Last time we came through here, we were headed south to see the Airstream factory in Jackson Center. This time, we are sticking along the coast of Lake Erie.

Starting a video blog on YouTube

A couple of years ago, I decided to try uploading a video a day during our travels. At the time, there were a lot of reasons why it was difficult to sustain. I did not have enough data bandwidth to upload the videos without blowing my monthly limit. The style of video I was trying to produce required a lot of video editing which took up time. I also tried to do it every day which added a lot of overhead to our already busy lives. As we are planning our trip to Alaska this summer, I decided to start the vlog back up. This time, we are shooting with a GoPro, editing and uploading them on my iPhone which should be much easier to maintain. If you are not yet subscribed to our YouTube channel, please check it out and follow along with our upcoming adventure. We will continue to share on all of our usual social channels but I would love to start interacting with readers and viewers on a more regular basis directly in those channels. Here is a little intro video we did today to kick off the vlog. Please subscribe if you find this interesting. Thanks!
