Day 4: Lancaster NH to Ottawa ON via Montreal QC

Rainy day for many sections, cool gravel road through northern VT (Route 58), border crossing on a small road where I almost ran the stop sign (in fairness, it did say "ARRET"), dinner at a good but surprisingly expensive Thai restaurant in Montreal, then a couple hours through a lightning storm to Ottawa. No moose have been seen yet. Many of the towns/villages along our route have been crushingly cute. Please stop.

Day 3: Brattleboro VT to Lancaster NH via Mt. Washington

Winding day through New Hampshire, New England niceness overload. Stopped in Meredith NH for lunch and walking around the lake, climbed a few thousand feet to Mt. Washington (a private road - $60!) and hung out in wind and clouds, then through the rain to Lancaster. Tomorrow we start aiming west for real.

Day 2: Danbury CT to Brattleboro VT

NASCAR fills all hotels near Concord NH. Lots of relatives seen today (hi all). Lots of stops, good food in Longmeadow MA, hope to see Mt. Washington tomorrow, then will have to start heading west.

Part II: New York to Michigan - Day 1: Brooklyn NY to Danbury CT

Time for a short jaunt to Michigan where we will stay with my parents and work out of our house there. Today I think was a bit roundabout in that we left Brooklyn relatively early (before noon), ran into significant traffic while visiting some relatives in Staten Island, and then again on our way north. New City NY is very nice if anybody asks (thanks OZ).

Day 13: Brooklyn NY to ... Manhattan? Atlantis? Mars?

Sorry for the slightly confused post title, it's just that it is the first time I haven't started the day by driving in awhile :)
