LOBSTAH!

We've finally arrived in Maine. From Northampton, we overnighted at another Walmart in Rochester, NH. We booked the first part of our stay at Recompence Shore Campground at Wolfe's Neck Farm.

Our goal for the rest of fall was to spend it in New England to experience the leaves and lobster. First stop (technically second, as we overnighted at a Wal-Mart in Fishkill, NY between NJ and MA) was Northampton, MA.

I transferred for good reasons, but if I have any regrets (and I don't, ultimately, because I can't imagine my life being any different than it is now), one is leaving Smith.
