Heading off-Cape, we passed the first of many state police across Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut who had pulled over drivers.

In 1946, the Pivnick family was inspired by the beautiful view from a hillside in Moodus, Connecticut. They envisioned a vacation place where families could get away from their everyday life in the city and enjoy the fresh air and relaxing atmosphere of the country. Their vision then became The Grand View Resort and Day Camp.
The family built a hotel, a playhouse, cottages and a swimming pool. For the next 30 years, city folks flocked to the Moodus countryside. It was just like the movie "Dirty Dancing". By 1975 air travel, cruising and RV camping became more affordable and the resort in Moodus became a thing of the past.
The Grand View Pool about 1946 – 1974
Soon after the resort closed it became the home of The Torah Institute, a Jewish heritage learning center and retreat. They enjoyed summers here for about 20 years.
For a short time after the resort became a basketball camp for city kids.
With no one caring for the once happy, full of life resort, things soon turned into a sad state of disrepair. Vandals and trespassers were stealing and destroying the property and buildings.
Today it is a very pretty campground …although without the owner's "last mile" directions, as opposed to using our GPS, we'd still be driving around and totally lost.
Statisticaly, we went over 92,000 miles of RV traveling on this, our 1,401st day on the road.
