Beth Visits America

  • bethmap.jpg

  • Come see what Beth's up to! She's living in her pickup truck (lovingly known as Tach), and rambling the byways and backroads of America. When she has money, that is. When she runs out, she stops and gets a job until she can drive on again. Stop in here, add your comments, and wish her the best. And heck, if you have a driveway, can she sleep in it?

Definately would've liked to see a picture of that there golf ball sized skeeter bite. :)

Classic Elite sounds like fun and your future Aran beautiful. I regret not going there...oh, my fiber regrets...


I've been a NH resident all my life, and I had no idea about that. *immediately starts having yarn fantasies* Now that I know, I'm sure that I'll have to make a pilgrimage.

You did, unfortunately, hit my happy state right in the middle of one of our special Seasons. See, most areas of the country just have the standard 4: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. In place of Spring and Summer, we get Mud, Bug, and Tourist season, though Tourist season actually tends to stretch all the way around 'til Mud season again -- we've got Leaf Peepers who come to look at our leaves and buy maple syrup in the fall, and the skiers and snowboarders who come in droves during the winter.

America's Stonehenge is nifty; I've been there once or twice before, usually on the way to a day at Canobie Lake Park, a small amusement park just a few miles from the 'henge.

Enjoy yourself in Portsmouth; it's absolutely gorgeous there! There's so much to see and do -- you can hang out and go shopping, or tour historical homes, take a walk around Prescott Park, go to the beaches near Rye....

If you want to find food for not a lot of money, go to Gilley's, on Fleet St. for lunch. It's this old trolley that was turned into a lunchwagon forever ago, and never left. If you want a great dinner, also fairly cheap, go to the Press Room on Daniels St. All the entrees are less than $10.00 -- more around the $7.00 range, and it's all excellent. There's always a crowd on weekends, so you might want to get there before 8 or 9pm.

Man you get around fast as I've been packing like a mad man trying to prepare to go to the Berkshires you've been flying around New England. I miss travelling with you. It was a taste of the open American adventurous road. Now I jsut get to enjoy it over your blog again. I jsut wanted to tell you how much fun it was having you visit Boston. Remember me when I am in the Berkshire mountains of Western Mass. Theres always a comfy place to sleep and a warm shower when ever you make it by. Take Care


where is this yarn type place?


Ah, but it will, and you will visit me in central WA any time you like. :)


Hey Bethany! I'm so glad you're making such *practical* yarn purchases. Got a question for you: know of any good resources with which to find an inexpensive but nice hostel-type place in NYC?


Heh heh, You don't know just how much of a deal that 'Wings" is. (retail was at least 7.00 a ball) The Shiny stuff is Studio, do watch that for breakage.
I'm glad you had fun at the Mill store. In a way I'm sad I don't work there any more, but it's better for my budget. I miss the customers, and the yarns..

Did you have fun with Minerva, Fielder and Dawn? they are very special.
