    OK you eastern riders.. My wife and I are heading your way in aug. We will be hauling our 20' camper,peddle bikes, and our dubs. Spending about 2 weeks.. Looking for some nice roads with some curves. Some two tracks without much sand.. Anyone have such a dream place in mind??? Cool campgrounds wood be a plus.. All those nice guiet states with lots of history.

    Thanks in advance. OMM.

    The east with kids in school is a better experience and poses less conflict for camping in my experience. Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire are great, but I really enjoyed eastern Nova Scotia (Cape Breton Island on a TW would be great if it wasn't raining), and especially Prince Edward Island if you miss the main tourist stampede.

    Another suggestion: I don't know where you are coming from, but if you are interested in the Ocean...

    Camp at Fisherman's Memorial State Park in Rhode Island:Fisherman's Memorial



    Take the Tw's to Block Island on the ferry:Block Island Ferry



    You can see the whole island in a day on the bikes...most of the roads are gravel, so the TW is the perfect way to get around.Block Island



    Have lunch on the porch of the Island House Hotel. Visit Southeast Light southeast lighthouse



    Once you get back to Galilee, have a seafood feast at Champlin's Champlin"s...1-1/4lb Lobster Dinner,...Mmm, Mmmm





    Oh, and personaly, I'd take September over August...much less crowded.
