Day 90. Sunday 28th July. Northport, Maine to Seabrook, New Hampshire. USA.

Maybe not the swishest campsite, but it was great for us. 

We were camped about 170miles from Seabrook where we have just arrived. A day of high temperatures, picture postcard villages and endless traffic. 

After stopping at a campsite not far from Seabrook we turned down their offer of paying $43 for a campsite. 

Tonight we are going to take the Walmart offer of camping in their carpark. There is enough space with grass behind us to put the Caranex up. Jen is nervous but as there are a couple of other campers. We will be just fine. Our site is at the back of the premises, so out of the way of regular shoppers. It’s 6.30pm and still 31degC. Though there is a nice breeze to make it tolerable. 

Two little ‘white trash’ tarts pulled up close to us in a ute and after about 15min drove away, leaving the uneaten food and wrappings in the carpark!!!

Today we turned over the 30,000th mile since leaving Wineham, last April. Maybe half way for the whole journey? That will depend on how much of Africa we get to see, safely. 

Tomorrow morning we call to see our parts man Greg, at Diesel Equipment Inc. Maybe if he has time, I will ask him to change the gearboxes and diff oils? 

On the way down Jen took us on a detour to Kennebunkport, Maine. The hometown of the Bush Dynasty. It’s a gorgeous historic town. I was never a Bush follower or supporter, so It didn’t stress me that we never got to see their mansion. No doubt tucked well away from snooping eye’s. Traffic in and out was at a crawl. 

From here we get into seriously congested country so may have to take expressways to get around the bigger cities. A trip to Boston though, is a must as it’s only 41 miles away.

Jen will update you tomorrow on our ‘Walmart experience’

  1. The ‘North End’ in Boston is a great spot to walk around – a very old Italian neighborhood (but will probably be pretty busy, given the tourist season), or a walk around the harbor is always fun. Boston can be pricey, so parking the Landy could be expensive. Looking forward to hearing the latest. You’ll probably start hitting a few toll booths heading in and out of Boston (like a lot of Cities on the East Coast), so be sure to have cash/coins on hand!

  2. Fantastic adventure. It was great meeting you both at Walmart this morning. I hope the rest of this maga adventure brings you everything you want. Perhaps see you something in the future back in England (where I fly back to in a few hours)

  3. We saw you passing through Falmouth, Maine and I had to look you up. Sorry the traffic did not allow us to stop and have a talk with you. Good travels.

    Saw your vehicle at Chapin Beach – Cape Cod– Dennis, MA and looked you up.

    What a great trip! Safe travels!
