Now there's something to get your heart pumping, and possibly skip a beat.  ;D :D

We had a wonderful day yesterday.
 

 
Complete with a Lobster Roll Lunch.

We will probably start traveling in a Southwesterly direction today.

Bad/no internet service and I don't what happened to yesterday's reply??

We had a very nice time at Mooseherder's place, and I can assure you that he is a Master Grillin' Chef.  Thank You
Glenn for your Hospitality, and also for the "Birthday" meals.   food6

We traveled Route 11 South from Ashland and spent last night in Millinocket and will continue our travels today on Route 11 & 2.  We did stop in and tour the Patten Lumbermen's Museum.

My apologies to SwampDonkey for not being able to visit with him.  Even though we are not on a schedule as such, our travel time is still somewhat limited due to an early August Doctor's appointment.   :-\

That's Ok Magicman. We are in the midst of things here with selling the house and site prep for the new place. It would have been no trouble, but better times ahead, so to speak.

We've had 12 viewings this spring, it will come together eventually. Houses sell well in Grafton. :)

We usually go to the museum in Patten, second Saturday in August for the bean hole dinner.

We are on US 2, and down for the night in Dixfield, Maine.

The highlight of our today's travel was meeting and visiting with thecfarm.  Without having any idea where I was, I drove to the road leading to his place, so it was a simple matter for Ray to retrieve us.
 

 
Two Friends finally meet.  This is at the driveway leading to his home.
 

 
Ray and his wife Brenda visiting with Pat and me on the "Woman Cave" front porch.
 

 
I wonder why Ray has never mentioned that he has Rocks??   :o

No pet rock.  Ray's rocks are much too large to ever tame!

Did you get a peek at the irving sawmill on your way through dixfeild? I have hauled many loads to them. Also a couple towns past Farmington is where I took the load I had on when you was here. Rt 2 is a nice drive, You must have seen some sights. Any moose around Ashland??

Sounds like we have been in the same neighborhood.  We have seen a few very large sawmills.  One a ways up Rt 11.

We have seen moose on past trips, but so far none on this trip.  Maybe there is a holdout in NH.   ;D

Yes,it was a joy to met both people from MS.  ;D  They almost found me. He was only about 1000 feet away. I did not even have time to get washed up.  I really do clean up good. I was outside working and was on the dirty side. But them people from away did not seem to mind at all. I had a good time visting.
Dixfield? Are you at the campsite that is between the river and Rt 2?
You might not have even passed Irving sawmill. Can't see much of it from the highway.  I sold them alot of white pine.
Breakfast out? Turn at the light in Dixfield,Weld Street?,about a mile on the left hand side is a fine place. Looks like a small store,but can seat about 40 outback. We just find the place about a month ago. Nice place to eat,nothing fancy,but good food.Seem like it was across from the school.

Your best chances are northern Maine and New Brunswick.  ;D

Bruno,you got them people from away hog tied down there?? They have been way too quiet.
Must be at least one moose around here,I saw the tracks a few weeks back. Have not seen anymore tracks. Hunters took 3 bulls on top of the hill here. Just about a mile away.

Well we didn't run across a Moose this visit but Magicman did spot a Deer in the pasture while we were talking on the porch.  I video taped it but it was about 200 yards away and the phone camera barely picked it up.   My groundhog hung out within 30 feet of me for a couple hours yesterday and today.  He's eating weeds and grass.  Him and I are good friends now.
