New Hampshire and
New Jersey Trip
June and July 1995

On June 16th, Dick, Lynne, Lucy (10), and Thomas (2) piled into our Voyager and set out from Prairie Village, Kansas on a 27-day, 4500-mile trip to New Hampshire and New Jersey. We did a lot of driving, saw some beautiful country, visited old friends and made new ones, and made it home in one piece with only one auto breakdown.
