hey everyone i am hoping to drive from rockland to white plains, NY next week via a very roundabout way through the western mtns and over into NH & VT before descending south. i have never travelled any of these states before and will be alone, so please keep this in mind. also, since i am on a very tight budget, i will not have much $$ to spend but i love good food & drink, esp. good beer and local food (i'm thinking homecooking type food since it's gonna get cold next week!). i plan on staying at a hostel in east andover, maine my 1st night, but after that i am clueless and figure i should probably spend no more than 3 nights max on the road (i feel like there are no good budget places to stay in new england, and hostels are few and far between in these parts). i also love funky & off the beaten path types of places, so if you know of any good ones, please recommend...thanks so much for your help!
