"Day 21 of The Journey and I'm in Brattleboro, Vermont tonight, 2950 miles on the odometer.
The farther I drove inland from the ocean today, the more colorful the scenery. The deciduous trees are all exploding in spectacular colors of Autumn and I throughly enjoyed the drive.
The town of Brattleboro is less than five miles from Putney, Vermont so I took a little drive around the area and enjoyed more of the beautiful autumn season.
Something of a puzzle to me is that although I've driven all these miles in the last three weeks I have not seen one other 2010 Lincoln MKT. It's such a great car, a very comfortable ride and big enough to hold anything I might want to load. I imagine it's the size that might be a drawback for most people and the gas mileage. When Karl got this car for me six months ago the gas mileage was only 13 to 15 mpg. . . . . really bad! Since being on The Journey the car is averaging 20 to 22 mpg and I enjoy the car so much it's well worth the extra cost to me. It's yet another gift from my dear Karl.
Tomorrow is the first day of Sherrie McGraw's five day workshop in Bennington, Vermont and we're suppose to be there at 8:30am to unload our painting gear. Since it's an hour's drive from here I'll be up extra early and on my way."
