It can start by browsing through a book, or maybe the internet, at any rate, our planning seems to usually start there. We identify places of interest and figure travel distance. Now, you might notice that there is no mention of campgrounds or specific overnighting locations. The plan doesn’t even have an ending point ! […]

Today we break camp in beautiful Maine, turn West on US 2 Highway and meander our way across New Hampshire, Vermont and towards Buffalo New York, overnighting along the way at a as yet to be determined location. If you are located along this beautiful route and would like to see the fantastic Oliver Legacy […]


They are everywhere ! Those pesky Squirrels are everywhere.  No sooner did the sun come up when thump thump, a Squirrel comes out of a tree onto Poco’s home while we are touring with Oliver’s Legacy II.
