I can’t be the only one that still loves to devour travel books and guides when I’m planning a trip. Don’t get me wrong — I use websites and apps all the time, but sometimes I want to dig just a little deeper, and I want to be able to delve into a topic without having to worry about whether my batteries will run out of juice!
I recently embarked on a solo camping trip to Wilgus State Park, here in Vermont. It rained for much of the trip, and I was stuck inside my tent with a pile of books.
If you know me, you also know this wasn’t much of a problem. On the contrary — I was delighted. I’ve been doing some serious research in my spare time, and for this trip, I was outfitted with books about my home state of Vermont and that’s it. Many of the books were from my home collection, but plenty of others were new to me, picked up at the Northshire Bookstore on a cold, winter day.
My favorite Vermont books kept me engrossed for most of the weekend, keeping me up past the life of my headlamp battery. These treasures are the books I want to share with you. Because even if you’ve yet to visit the Green Mountain State, you will someday. And you need to be ready.
Of course, you can find out lots of stuff online these days, but if you’re anything like me, you’ll appreciate the comfort of a dog-eared book to accompany you on your travels.
