When you have New York tags on your vehicle, it can be dangerous going to Massachusetts during the post-season, so we take precautions. As real Redsox fans, we have a Redsox frame on our rear license plate, but that’s hard to see when there’s a pop-up camper behind it.

So for safety on the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston (okay, we didn’t really go that far, but you can hum a few bars) we added this to the back bumper of the camper:

That gets you to the campground, but once you’re there, you need to take additional measures – party lights, for instance:

You have to look closer to see why these help. Only dedicated Sox fans would invest in these:

So now that you know we made it there and back safely, I’ll tell you that, yes, we had a wonderful trip. The weather was great and we had a family reunion on Sunday, including my husband’s sister & family, who spent the last year living on a boat. It was great to see them all again.

We didn’t see any critters on this trip, except the one we brought with us (shown here in her “camping clothes”)

but our campsite was very spacious and private, and I went kinda crazy taking shots of sunlight playing through the trees. Here they are now!

And that was my Octobah vacation in Massachusetts.

    I see you had a relaxing time, and you don’t seem to be too negatively affected by the Massachusetts accent. Heh!

    Glad you are returned. Welcome back!

    We are kindred spirits! Your pictures came out great. I love the first tree one with the light shining through. How absolutely perfect. Love, your HB!

    Nah, Cato, the accent doesn’t bother me. My husband only uses it when he’s with his brother, and then I harrass them both. :)

    Hey HB! You’re back! The first one is my favorite, too. The light actually comes through on all of them, but it doesn’t show up very well in the smaller versions for the blog. Ah, well.
