Great day today! Finally left Bangor after 3 nights there, 2 of those unplanned. Bike has been repaired and seems to be doing fine. So once again we left in search of the lighthouse at Lubec, ME. Lubec is the easternmost city in the US. That would make the lighthouse the most easterly point in […]

Not much to report for today. Not even any pics. We spent the first half of the day on the side of the road then the next bit at the shop. Hopefully we can have parts tomorrow and get back on the road!

Back in the, back in the USA!

August 11, 2018

So tonight will be mainly pictures with a brief explanation. Of course there’s an exception….if you’ve never been to PEI (Prince Edward Island), you should know that it costs you nothing to go to the island. But trying to leave the island is another thing altogether! Seems PEI contracted with a private company to build […]

Probably one of the best trips I’ve taken. Think I’ve seen more in the last 10-12 days than I have in a few years! And there’s still more to come! This morning we were trying to get to the ferry early enough to catch a free spot (versus the $78 reserved ones). Details were a […]

A day full of touristy stuff!

August 9, 2018

And, yes, it was a full day!!! Tour guide, Terry, picked us up around 9:00am to start our day. First destination was Lunenburg. Cool little fishing village kinda stuck in time… old, old houses and businesses – most painted in bright colors. Lots of antique marine artifacts on display. Old lobster traps, anchors, buoys, etc. […]

Nova Scotia, we have arrived!

August 8, 2018

It’s been a much better day…. Yesterday, even though it started out great, ended in the toilet and put me in a really foul mood. We left Bangor on a most peaceful, gorgeous ride. ME9 almost all the way to the Canadian border. Hardly any traffic and very little construction! I think it was St […]

Day whatever

August 7, 2018

Day started out great… rain caught us 35 miles from hotel. Rooms were upstairs with no elevator! Waitress at dinner was a total ditz! Came back to the motel to find NO TV! I’m going to bed!

Day 7 to Bangor ME

August 6, 2018

More international travel today as we hit Berlin, Mexico and So Paris! Today’s ride wasn’t quite as interesting or pretty as yesterday but still a good ride. There seems to be lots of road construction up this way and I think we’re hitting all of it!! Just a few miles from Barre, I found us […]

August 5, 2018

So, we stayed the night in Rome and traveled through Russia and Ohio today! Don’t get excited… it was all within the NY state lines! Another fantastic day! We spent most of it on the Adirondack Trail, a lazily, meandering road through the Adirondack Mountains. It wound through small villages/townships, vacation communities and campgrounds. It […]

Maid in the Mist

August 4, 2018

And spent the first half of the day still in Niagara Falls. Could not miss the Maid in the Mist boat ride. These boats carried 500-600 folks wearing rain slickers and holding on for dear life! I’ve been to NF 3 times and just did this for the first time. If you find yourself in […]
