We Need Your Suggestions

We screwed up we travelled across Michigan, we didn't draw upon the vast knowledge of all of our friends who grew up in that part of the world. When they found out where we were, they provided tons of great suggestions, but some of it was a little too late since we had a tight schedule that required us to be in Montreal on a specific day.

We are heading south out of Canada tomorrow. Our first major stop will be Acadia National Park for a few days. Next major stop will be Salem, Massachusetts with a stop in Freeport, Maine along the way. Then we will make a trip out to Cape Code. After that it's pretty wide open, but we will generally be heading south.

We need your suggestions for the East Coast. We really don't have a lot of experience to draw from for where to go and what to see along the East Coast. So we are looking for suggestions.

So far we have the following on our itinerary:

  • Acadia National Park
  • Salem Massachusetts
  • Cape Code
  • Valley Forge
  • Gettysburg
  • Norfolk Virginia

The rules:
We need places we can stay in our truck camper. We've done State Parks, National Parks and RV Parks, but we are open to anywhere we can legally stay in our truck camper (hey, we haven't done a Walmart parking lot yet). The problem is that up in New England we are finding many of the places where we would normally stay in our truck camper are closing or closed for the season.

We are avoiding staying in large cities (e.g. Boston, New York) because large cities and a truck camper don't always work well together, but we are open to visiting locations near the large cities if you can suggest a place for us to stay in our camper outside the city that is located near public transit.

Thank you for any suggestions you can provide. Our mascot, Jeff the camper fly, who has been with us since Rapid City, South Dakota is excited to hear your suggestions for where he will be traveling next.


  1. I don't know a thing abt the E coast, but found this. 😉


  3. Hope y'all will give serious consideration to visiting Charlottesville and Monticello when you're in the Old Dominion!
