Oct 17 Heading home …

Left campsite at approx 11 am ..  nice drive back home .. no traffic  on the way home .. sunny cool day ..  arrived home around 1:30 .. took  few attempts at backing in driveway … I have good & not so good backup days … today was an in between day …  unloaded Casita … and will wait awhile before we call this our last trip for 2010 .. don’t want to winterize and cover Casita too early … we may get some Indian summer days and want to take it for one more trip … Before we do close up the Casita for the winter .. we’ll wash & wax it .. and sand & paint over some rust spots on trailer frame …. we’ve already started a list of things that we want to have for next years camping ..ie..small portable cube heater … led lights for inside of trailer (existing lights run hot), better storage plan for inside of trailer …. etc .. etc ..

Oct 16 Woodstock

Met up with Fran/Jim, Sue /Dan around 1:30 for lunch in downtown .. Joshua’s … nice lunch . Even though weather was chilly and breezy .. alot of folks milling around the streets .. Woodstock never seems to change .. it’s like a town stuck in time .. some stores may change .. but the town looks the same as we remember it ….  One missing store was a quilt/fabric store Terri had hoped to visit … found out the store is now a drug store  ….  After lunch we walked around town .. checking out the stores .. taking photos .. etc …   More photo’s in ‘trip photo’s’ link …

Oct 15 Day in Saugarties and beyond ……..

Rained most of last night … and most of this afternoon .. raining as I’m writing this (6 pm) …  Forcast calls for rain to stop tomorrow .. thats the good news .. temps are going to drop .. snow showers forcast for higher elevations .. is that Saugarties/Woodstock ???  Drove through Saugarties around noon time .. cruised main street .. seem like alot of stores were closed … thought we’d head out to fabric store in a town called Ravena .. then come back to Saugarties for a late lunch …  Fabric store was in a nice log cabin (owners residence) .. after checking out their goods .. we headed back to ‘town’ ..  Town activity picked up a little .. more folks walking around main street .. we found  nice bakery/cafe ..  weather being chilly we had some hot potato soup .. fresh bread .. and shared a chicken pot pie … excellent stuff .. also walked out with some chocolate chip cookies and a brownie for dessert tonite …  After lunch we walked around main street .. lots of little shops … lots of old buildings that have been transformed into business’s … antique shops .. a bookstore .. etc .. not that buildings had been restored or anything .. they were still old buildings …  Saugarties was voted among the top 10 coolest towns in USA (Frommers) ..  we must have missed something .. nice small town .. but top 10 …. ??  We think not  …  🙂  A little bit too cold to be walking around .. we needed gloves and warmer clothes … we headed back to campsite .. did some reading .. took a power nap … getting ready for tonights Yankee playoff game …

Weather was so bad .. we didn’t take any photos .. hopefully tomorrow will be  a better day .. tomorrow we head to Woodstock to meet up with Fran/Jim .. Sue /Dan for lunch … photos will be taken .. rain or shine   🙂  ….

 

Photo Terri took as we were entering Saugarties yesterday … one of the few moments it wasn’t raining ..

Oct 14 Woodstock .. Last Casita trip of 2010

We wanted to make one more camping trip for 2010 .. good timing in that Sue & Fran wanted to meet for lunch in Woodstock this weekend .. so .. we’re doing both .. our last camping trip and meeting in Woodstock for lunch Sat with Fran & Sue.  Left house around 11:30 this morning .. arrived at our campsite around 2:00 .. a short ride .. and best of all .. no rain encountered during our trip .. but .. rain is in the forcast for the next few days .. Other than meeting up with the gang on Sat .. we’ll just be touring the area for the next few days .. we’ve been to Woodstock several times .. but .. we’ve never taking the time to do any exploring ..
