2014-07-30

Yesterday, we drove to Lake George so Marilyn could do some Outlet Mall Shopping. She needed new clothing for an August wedding of a close friend. Since we did not have cell phone service at Lake Lauderdale CG, we called Splendide while shopping. The washing machine had decided that it did no want to dry clothing. The tech sent us an email with directions to eliminate a lint buildup. We followed his directions, and they eliminated the problem.

This afternoon, we decided to drive to the town of Cambridge, NY to see if they had a fuel station where we could get diesel fuel for the motorhome. Of course we turned in the yopposite direction out of the campground, because Marilyn wanted to see what the town (Shushon) in that direction looked like. It is just another little town, but it had an old covered bridge built in 1858, and closed to traffic in 1962. 2014-07-30 Bridges of Washington County, NY This bridge has been replaced by another bridge, and can not be traveled on. The old man at the Shushan Covered Bridge Museum gave us a brochure entitled “The Bridges of Washington County) NY, so when we left, we set off to see three more covered bridges, which are still in use today.

We next saw the Rexleigh Covered Bridge in the town of Jackson-Salem, NY was build in 1874. 2014-07-30 Bridges of Washington County, NY2014-07-30 Bridges of Washington County, NY DSC029102014-07-30 Bridges of Washington County, NY
