Geeks With Blogs

The Guide of a MOSSLover Becky Isserman's Blog
I am by no means a world traveler like Joel Oleson.  My goal in life is to hit as many countries as I can and try hit every single state in the U.S.  So when I saw this add for the Hartford Code Camp ( I signed up.  I have never been to New England (that I can remember) in my adult lifetime.  I know that in my entire life I have never seen Rhode Island, Massachussetts, New Hampshire, or Maine.  So I made a decision this week that I am going to come in on Thursday in the afternoon to Hartford and drive to Providence, RI.  I am going to drive all the way up I-95 to Portland, Maine.  I am not going to plan much, including lodgings and where I want to go.  If I see something cool along the way I am going to stop and check it out.  According to Rob Foster it looks like in Portland, Maine I need to have a lobster.  When the code camp finally roles around on Saturday I should have some really neat pictures and some great blog posts in August.  If anyone has been following my twitter or blog you will notice that at the end of July I will be in Seattle, then I am going to New England for my roadtrip/code camp adventure and the end of the month in August I will be in New York City for a friend's wedding.  If you live in any of these places let me know and maybe I can make a side detour who knows.  All I know is that I have been kicking myself since my high school graduation for not hitting all these states.  I am really excited, because a lot of people say August is a really pretty time to visit New England.  I really can't wait to go.  I think if I could I would pack my bags tommorow and head out like Forest Gump I love traveling to new places so much.  Anyway, I better get back to book things and such I'll catch you guys later have a good day as always.

You should spend as little time as possible in Portland - maybe just have that lobster as you roll through, and drive an hour or two north to Bar Harbor. I know, it sounds like a lot of driving especially since you're starting off in RI, but believe me, it is worth it! The scenery up there is beautiful, and the town is great. Lots of cheap yet very nice b&b's, as well as little taverns, shops, and my favorite - ice cream! My family and I took a trip to Boston a few years ago, and drove to Bar Harbor on someone's suggestion and loved every minute of it.
