Hit the road for our new adventure as full timers 8/13/16, first stop the beautiful state of Vermont to spend a few weeks with our eldest son and his new wife. We were able to stay on his landlords property in the Green Mountain National Forest, what a gorgeous place! We were surrounded by mountains and had beautiful views everywhere we looked. Spent every morning enjoying the views out our front door!
Took in some of the local flavor at one of Vermont best brewery's ( Otter Creek Brewery) what a great place. They have a little pub that has all their beers on tap and serve some great sandwiches. There is a whole wall of glass windows where you can watch the brewing process while you enjoy great food and good beer. If you are ever inthe area of Middlebury Vermont check them out.

Went on a day trip today to San Xavier Mission a spanish Catholic mission on the Tohono Indian Reservation. Founded in 1692. Razed in an Apache
raid in 1770. Rebuilt in 1783. The oldest European structure in Arizona. Still actively run by Franciscans.
Very cool place, they still have mass throughout the week and have tours and tell you the history of the mission. Nearby is a small hill with a cross on the top and a grotto where people light candles. There's a path that goes around the hill about halfway up that you can walk all around.
Fun day! Lots to see around Tucson! There is an abandoned titan missle base near by that give tours, we will try and see it next.
Side note! 1:00 pm 90° ! Sorry guy's!
Lee and Terri's Excellent Adventure, more to come.

We're at Hot well Dunes National Recreation Area in Az. Its a hot spring formed when they were drilling for oil and they struck an Artesian well. There are two hot tubs, the water is naturally 106° constant temperature. The heated water is 1920 feet below the surface. They struck the well in 1928 while drilling and it puts out 250 gals per minute of hot mineral water. There is over two thousand acres of dunes here that people can ride there four wheelers and dirt bikes on. Iys cool to watch.
We met up with our friend Steve Lindsey who we met on the road and is from our home town of Naugatuck Ct. Very nice guy! He tetired from the Shick company and has been traveling full time a little over a year.
We are surrounded by mountains and desert as far as you can see. The nearest town is about thirty miles away, Safford Az. The expanse of this country is unbelievable! The desert just goes on and on for miles.
We are very near the Indian Cochise's strong hold, the famous Chiricahua Apache Chief of the Chokonen band of Indians. Theres so much history out here, its so interesting. What an interesting and beautiful country we live in!
More of Lee and Terri's excellent Adventure to come!

Our view this morning from the top of Snyder hill in Snyder hill BLM. You can stay 14 days free and then have to move to another site. It's dispersed camping ( wild camping)with no amenities or utilities.
There are a lot of other campers here, half it seems are from Canada. We've met some really nice people from all over. One old gent is 83 years old traveling alone in a coverted uhaul box truck he turned into an rv. It totally self contained. Cool old guy! He said he's originally from pa.
We will be moving on and starting to explore the country once our solar is wired up in the next week or two.
More to come
