Road Trip!!!

Welcoming Chair in Spring Gardens, Philadelphia - A stop on the Urban Farm Bike Tour 

Ah, the sweetness of knowing vacation is just a few hours away.  I already have my MP3 road trip mix (is it wrong to have 3 songs by Journey on there??) ready to blast with the windows rolled down as we zoom along I-91 through New York into New Hampshire and then eventually into Maine.   Lots of hiking and biking and cooking on a camp stove await along the way. 

While I will be off the grid for a few days, the blog will continue to keep you all entertained and informed.  I’ve sent out smoke signals to Rachel, my sister-in-law and one mighty fine cook, inviting her to guest blog for me as she feels the urge.  I’m also giving myself homework for the trip — to seek out farmers markets and roadside stands along the way and see what I can cook up over the campfire or camp stove with the local produce of New England.   Once I get back online, I’ll be sure to report my findings. 

In the meantime, here are some previous posts that might make for good summer reading.

    Is this your chair or somewhere on your travels? If it’s yours – where did you purchase? It is lovely!

    Thanks and cheers,

    Heather – It’s not mine. It was in a community garden I visited.
