No cell service, no wi-fi since Thursday. We went to Burlington on the border of Lake Champlain which separates Vermont from New York to get some aloe juice (that's a whole other story). I finally got service in Burlington.....not on the Interstate getting there but in the city.  We found an awesome restaurant that's throughout New England called Ninety Nine.

The winery and our hostess, Hilary, was an awesome experience.  Mead.....wine made from honey. I only put up pictures of 2 of the names but they all come from myths.  Really neat reading about what the gods were noted for.

Of course everyone knows Ben & Jerry's ice cream.  Our tour ended with an ice cream sample called "salted carmel."  The samples are usually never found on the grocery store shelves.

I've been to that Ben and Jerry's. They have ice cream all over VT. We attended Lane's brother's wedding there on Lake Champlain years ago. We also drove up to Montreal and spent a day in Old Montreal. You might want to consider going.!

I agree, you are so close, you should see Montreal and Niagara Falls while you are there, The Canadian side is so much prettier than the American side. Really worth the side trip.
