When Spring arrives, the feeling to breakout can be overwhelming. By now we've had enough with the TV binges, hoodies and fried snacks. It's time for an outdoor adventure or 7.

7 Outdoor Destinations Await for a CT Adventure

If you're anything like me you spend most of your days hiding your inner child waiting to break out.

New Milford Man’ s Chilling Texas Chainsaw Massacre Truck Seen in Monroe

This past weekend’s (6/4/22) Barnum Festival in Monroe, CT was a success by anyone’s measure. It was a place to go see classic cars of all kinds, have some food and see live music. In that sea of automobile madness was a terrifying thing. There was a vehicle with a recognizable and chilling theme, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Truck.
