We were determined to make it to Vermont today, and that we did! A 300-mile day – some interstate and a lot of back roads. Landed at Woodford State Park just outside Bennington, VT.
After a long drive, we found a State Park with an adequate campsite overlooking Locust Lake. It made the drive worth it!

We scored a very nice site overlooking the mountains in Shenandoah National Park. Plan to ride out the Memorial Day Holiday here.
Enjoying a near-empty National Park Campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Stalker is quite relaxed.
"Found an absolutely beautiful and spacious campground on Lake Powhatan outside Asheville, NC."
We are planning a one-nighter at Cumberland Mountain State Park before moving on in the morning. It’s a nice park, but we have places to go & people to see down the road.
"Our campsite on the end of a loop is set off from the other sites. We have Tennessee woods with no sites on three sides of us."
Camping on the Trace tonight at National Park Service’s Jeff Busby Campground, A very nice, small campground that accepts no reservations and is free. You can’t beat that.
Our side trip today was to Vicksburg National Military Park. The stone entrance is a sixteen-mile tour loop of the park's 1330 monuments, markers, tablets, and plaques that parallels Union siege and Confederate defensive lines. Over 100,000 soldiers from 28 states fought for the control of Vicksburg...
A slight detour off the Natchez Trace for a layover a Le Fleurs Bluff State Park. We will return to the Trace Sunday morning.
We can’t believe we are already in Mississippi. Settling in for a couple of days before we start up the Natchez Trace Parkway.
We landed at Kincaid Lake campground near Alexandria, LA: Nice spacious sites, a glimpse of Kincaid Lake through the trees, and trail nearby.
