That's a lot of road between you and there!

If you cross the Bay of Fundy let me know, I'm 2 miles from the ferry terminal and have a large yard.

Hilltop366, we drove all of the way through New Brunswick last time and then to the tip of Cape Breton where we caught the ferry to Newfoundland.  I doubt that we will enter Canada this time.   :-\

WDH, Lobsta, yes, but no clams.

Do you guys have a timeframe?  Hopefully, we will be there when you go.  If you're camping, I can set you up on the property with a campsite.  Our place is 6 miles from Canada and 350 miles from The New Hampshire border.  We could have a MagicMoose Meet!

Not absolute yet.  Our May is already used up, and probably June too because we always have the family at the Cabin on July 4th.  Right now I am hoping soon thereafter.

   Southern WV seems to be right on the route from Brookhaven to Bay of Fundy. I have a big lot in front of the house aching for visitors. Love to have you and Miz Pat stop by if it works out. 8)

Come see The C Farm rocks.  ;D  Better hurry. I dug out 6 last night and put them into the bog. I would hate for you to miss out on the rocks.  :D

The absolute very first thing that I did to that map was to find and highlight Chesterville.   ;D

That's on the other end of Chesterville.
This side has a pile of rocks and a green and yellow sawmill.  ;D

The boat on the cover is the kate.in Greenville. When built it was used to tow log booms on Moorhead lake. Now you can go for a ride on the big lake

Magic, I have spent many, many happy hours in Maine. The beaches in the southern part of the state are beautiful. (but the water is cold) When my children were young we vacationed a few times in Wells. We always had breakfast at Congdon's, one of the great breakfast-lunch restaurants in this country. I've canoed the Moose River out of Jackman several times with the boy scouts and I've fished Moosehead Lake both summer and winter. Once a year we drive up to my wife's favorite place in Maine ::) the LLBean store in Freeport. Maine is a beautiful state and I expect you will have a good time while you are there.

   All the best, Cutter

On our last visit we fairly well traveled the coastline before exiting at Calais.  Our sorta plans this time is to take a couple of boat rides and then to go as far East as Freeport before making a loop North and then back West.

Actually we did too Gary.  We also stayed along the coastline on our last trip which is why we want to travel North and more into the mountains/interior this time.

  If you look up Lake Molunkus, that is near where I killed my 2 best bucks.
