... on Route 1, with our mailbox coming into view and a left turn into the driveway. Everything seemed to be a blur as I tried to remember what it was like the morning we left on April 15th and how lush and green everything looked. As I pulled into "my" parking place, I looked down at the odometer and it read "10,755" miles. Our trip was officially over.
It will take a couple of days to completely get our "RV" cleaned out and everything ...
Day 13 (April 29) -- We have definitely been in the land of history of the USA .... many cities and towns inc. in the 1600s..... Today seemed very long and yet I believe the mileage was a little shorter. We started in Westhampton and are currently near Durham, Maine. Left Massachusetts and went into New Hampshire and then Maine-- the last of the United States until we make ...
... and put where its supposed to be, its close enough and we even have some room left - big shock to me.
During one of my trips to Rockland, I parked as close to the Atlantic Ocean as I could without getting the tires wet - and will do the same thing in northern California to show the Pacific. See photo.
Access to Wifi will be hit and miss, we'll check in as we can - for the next 3 months.
Time to wake the dog.

With the temp in the 20s all day we are READY to get going. Still getting things loaded in the RV and have scheduled eye doctor and dentist visits to be as sure as we can be that we are healthy and ready for several months 'out of Dodge'.

Historical Traveler Reviews Senator Inn & Spa Augusta
My stay at the Senator was a very positive experience. The quality of the spa and spa suites is comparable to resorts I have visited in Phoenix and Las Vegas. The attention to detail and service left me feeling pampered and taken care of.
The restaurant is an amazing gourmet experience that I would not expect to find at a hotel in this area. Both the ambiance and the food are excellent.
I especially loved the spa boutique, there are some true artistic 'finds' here that are unique and affordable.
I stayed at the Best Western Senator in Augusta for one night and I will never stay there again. After check in I found that my room was very small, but that was just the beginning.
I think this hotel does benefit a good deal from being the only 3+ star hotel in Augusta. The hotel was clean, the service was good, and the wireless internet worked. However, I did have a couple of complaints - The "Free" breakfast. This is a continental breakfast that you get for free, such as a donut, muffin, fruit cup, or bowl of cereal. You do have to pay $2.50 for soda, coffee, or juice however, and including your tip, you just paid $4.00 for a free breakfast of a muffin and a cup of joe. I'd recommend going to the bagel shop down the road. To the Best Western Senator - Keep the free breakfast, it only upsets your guests when you gouge us for the beverage.
As we walked into the lobby to check in, there was a vitriolic man who was arguing with the desk clerk and someone on the hotel phone about the quality of his room. He was all worked up into a nasty frenzy and finally hurled the phone across the counter in a display reminiscent of Russell Crow's famous tantrum. As he departed, kicking furniture and yelling at the top of his lungs, we all were appalled at his tactless actions.
As a business traveler who stays in 60 to 70 hotels a year (and reviews nearly all of them on TripAdvisor), I've seen the some of the best and some of the worst. One of the most disturbing experiences is to stay in a hotel that gets good reviews on TripAdvisor and elsewhere, but turns out to be a very disappointing.
Very enjoyable experience!!!
We've traveled quite a bit lately and our most pleasant experience has been at the Senator Inn & Spa. All around great time -- employees were friendly and helpful, lobby was nice, room was clean and comfortable, pool/whirlpool/steam room/fitness facilities were excellent. Very relaxing. Restaurant was great. Actually can't wait to have to be in the Augusta area again!
Just Great !!!
Excellent property, food in restaurant was wonderful, beautiful rooms, jacuzzi in room, fireplace in room. One of the best places I have stayed.
An Oasis in Augusta
Wow what a great place... where else can you get a comfortable room with above average attention to detail. The Front Desk clerk was very helpful to our needs and made sure the room was to our liking. The indoor salt water pool was refreshing and relaxing. The Spa is a Jewel to the augusta area and from the looks of the expansion that is going on, it will only bet better. We were treated to the complimentary breakfast in the main restaurant. Eggs, fruit and other delectables were in the offering. We will be back in the future.
Very bad experience at the Senator Inn & Spa. We had reserved a non-smoking deluxe room close to the front of the hotel. The deluxe room was to have a microwave, 2 fridges and 2 tvs. We endedup in a smoking room (disgusting) very far away from the front desk, with one TV and a 4 inch portable in the bathroom and only one fridge and no microwave.The card-key door locks did not work. After 3 times to the front desk, finally the maintenance person told us "oh yeah, this lock does not work. The manager was trying to fix this and I guess he didn't. They probably shouldn't have rented this room out". Nice. The lack of interest by the front desk staff made it all the more bothersome.Finally the hot breakfast is nothing to rave about. The eggs benedict were absolutlely soaked in butter and we were unable to eat them. We went out for breakfast.My advice: stay elsewhere. This place is not all that its cracked-up to be. Very disappointing.
