    Just saw a post on facebook that Wild Bill’s is closing for good and liquidating, so maybe on your way down you can check it out again! I will give more detail if i see more, and BTW, I shared this video on their page today!

    Always enjoy your travels wherever you go. You are so awesome at this – just love you and Jax. Speaking of the non-potable water, I wonder if the pipes have lead or other heavy metals and that’s what makes them non-potable…

    I love your videos but sometimes I wish you would just point the camera where you are so we can see more of it less of you. Not that I dont like you I do I just want to see the view.

    Eric that is Long Island Sound but Connecticut has great beaches especially Hamanassett State Beach in Madison. Rhode Island (the Ocean State) is open ocean and amazing surf. Sorry to say Wild Bill died a few years ago not sure who runs it now.

    Neat video and too bad Wild Bill’s was closed. That place had a massive amount of artwork. Wonder who did a lot of the murals? I’m one that likes quirky and eclectic places and things too😉 Not a fan of clowns😱👀🤡😵 Take care and thanks for sharing the sights and sounds along your travels👍🇺🇸

    Great episode. On the water at the dump site, it is potable, as a note nowhere in americas have seperate water systems potable and not potable. The likely reason is that people use that tap to rinse their dump hose and might contaminate the tap. Touch wood, i’ve used thiis tap too many times to count and not got sick yet. So if nessisity prevails it’s OK

    I remember that traffic light and an officer being inside when i was a boy back in the 60’s! To bad you missed out on a real hamburg in Meriden at "Ted’s Steamed Cheese Burgers"

    I’ve been to Louis Lunch. The burgers are great! They cook in specially made ovens and racks. They serve them on good old fashioned white bread. And you can’t ask for ketchup. I’ll definitely have to look for that traffic control tower in Meriden, very cool! Safe travels. Enjoy your New England Sojourn.

    Man, you should have gone to Friendlies to get your burger and shake while in CT. That is, if they’re still around. It’s always hot and humid in CT during the summer. Still, I loved living there.

    Dude, it’s the original hamburger because it’s between bread. Hamburger originates from Hamburg. Germany where no egg and bread crumbs are used differing it from a Fricadelle or Boulette that has the 2 ingredients.
