What I did
I travelled into the neighbouring State of Vermont today to visit Peacham where they filmed one of my favourite films The Spitfire Grill (never released in the UK!). My Sat Nav directed me along dirt tracks in the forests and mountains of Vermont for a full hour before I finally arrived. I think staying with the map would have been a lot easier and much less scary. The car struggled to get grip going up some of the inclines - but i did manage to avoid pickups today!
Now I'm back in my Motel room watching the Fulham v Chelsea game live on TV - cool
Tomorrow I plan to visit more of New Hampshire's mountains - this is a very beautiful area. I'm glad there are no mosquitoes or black fly which I am told are a major problem in the summer. What is fun is when people ask where I'm from which enables me to say 'Old Hampshire' - it goes down well - although someone did accuse me of being Australian yesterday!
Watching TV here is frustrating. It takes about twice as long to warch a film because of all the ad breaks. Sometimes the same ad will be played 3 times back-to-back in one break - it is mind numbing in the extreme. The local cinema is showing Hunger Games and Titanic 3D neither of which I am keen to see. Let's see what my next location offers.
