    Autum Leaf Peeping in New England, USA

     
    Travel Tips To Leaf Peeping by Car in Vermont, New England During Autumn Season Driving To Vermont From Illinois in the Midwest, USA Twenty years ago, on September 3, 1993, my Father Mr. Roberto Hung J.D. purchased a Lombard Historic Brick Bungalow and Nathan S. Wittler and I moved to the Village of Lombard in DuPage County during September, he wanted to drive out east to Vermont, the Green Mountain state in New England in the new sandstone sportscar Nissan 200SX which featured an auto-pilot self-driving steering wheel to handle the miles on the US highways. Nathan S. Wittler wanted to visit his parents Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler (Patriquin) at the West Dummerston Farm by the West River near Brattleboro, Vermont in New England. The Wittlers planned the annual Wittler-Patriquin Family reunion with Grandfather Patriquin’s clan for a family wedding involving Kent Wittler and Linda Goetz. The fourth time, Nate’s youngest brother Kent Wittler became engaged to Linda Goetz from Cooperstown, New York and decided to get married in South Vermont, New England. The Autumn season driving to Vermont from Illinois in the Midwest was going to be the fourth leaf-pipping tour time for me to enjoy the colorful display of Fall leaves around West Dummerston and Brattleboro by the West River in New England. Fall in Vermont is one of the best times to get away on a long car drive to travel in the Green Mountain state. After the wedding, Nathan and I planned to drive north through Vermont and cross the Canadian border around Lake Champlain into the province of Québec to visit Montréal and drive on the Canadian highway Route 401 to Ontario towards Saute St. Marie and Detroit Michigan for the scenic tour around the Great Lakes back to Illinois in the Midwest. Previously, Nathan S. Wittler and I had travelled to South Vermont after getting married ourselves aboard the Star of Chicago at Navy Pier by Lake Michigan in the Illinois, USA. Nate and I attended the family wedding reunion for his youngest sister Heather Wittler and Jon Eruren at the Vermont farm in New England. We drove east from the Land of Lincoln through Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachussetts, New Hampshire, and New York all the way to West Dummerston by the West River near Brattleboro in South Vermont, New England. Afterwards, Nathan’s second brother Bryan Wittler got married to Peggy Cano and moved to Newfane near West Dummerston in South Vermont. The second time travelling to New England, Nathan and I decided to fly to Boston, Massachusetts to pick up his youngest brother Kent Wittler who was studying at Harvard University. So, Nate and I flew into Logan Airport in Boston, then rented a National car to drive out to South Vermont after we picked up Kent Wittler by Harvard University in Boston. I was driving out the National rental car while Nate and Kent were talking and trying to catch up on the family and friends events. The three of us, me, Nate and Kent drove out on U.S. Highway 1 from Boston, Massachusetts to West Dummerston and Brattleboro, New England to meet the Wittlers and the Patriquins at the farm by the West River in South Vermont. We drove safely through the Boston city traffic and the New England commuters travelling to South Vermont in New England for the Autumn family wedding reunion. Since I was driving carefully, there were no traffic tickets nor moving violations during our Autumn season driving through New England and the East coast on our way to West Dummerston and Brattleboro in South Vermont. Pre-planning, fuel budgeting, and AAA Motor Club member deals can make a great Fall Leaf Peeping driving across the Midwest from Illinois through Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, South Vermont and northbound across the Green Mountain state towards Stowe, Burlington, Montpelier and around Lake Champlain into the Canadian border and the province of Québec en route to Montréal and across Ontario following the Canadian Highway 401 into Saute St. Marie, Windsor, and Detroit, through the scenic Lake Michigan tour-de-lac back to the Land of Lincoln.
