It was cool and overcast when we headed down our driveway Monday April 18th. We were off to Florida for a few weeks to shake the winter blahs and rejuvenate our bodies before resuming work on the house. Accompanying us was Ben our new puppy. We would find out for the first time how well he would travel. As it turned out he was a good companion and well behaved, sleeping all night wherever we stopped and seeming to enjoy the swaying of the truck and camper. We had planned on driving only 7 or 8 hours each day, winding our way south towards Lyn and Don's home in Brooksville. We began our trip crossing into Maine, taking SR27 south to Massachusetts. We drove down the I-95 towards Boston but to avoid going through the city we followed the I-495 to the I-90 and I-84 west, stopping in Sturbridge for the night where we stayed at a Thousand Trails campground next to a small lake under a canopy of pine trees. We were up early for breakfast and on the road, looking for warmer weather, passing through Hartford, Connecticut, Scranton, Pennsylvania to White Haven. Here, situated along the scenic Lehigh River, nestled at the doorstep of Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountain, we stayed the night at the Lehigh Gorge campground.
