    Into the USA

    June 7, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    On purpose this time.
    Foggy start along the St Lawrence River. Crossed over the border at St Stephens- best coffee of the whole trip made by a girl from Cuba. Crossed into Calais then drove the coastal routes. Could have been very pretty but sea fog covered most of the coast. Inland was really sunny. You could see the fog as a bank of cloud.
    Met a man and his dog along a walking path to a beach who recommended a scenic drive - Schoodic peninsula byway. Was lovely but still cloudy ⛅.
    To Bangor for the night. Big steaks at the Longhorn for tea.

    Chipotle

    September 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    Having never eaten at a Chipotle before, I asked for a minute to look over the menu signs. We eventually ordered and when we went to pay for our food they told us it was on the house since it was our first time. How nice of them! Overall the staff was super friendly and the restaurant was super clean. I was really impressed by the food too. I walked in thinking it's similar to Taco Del Mar back home... but let me tell you- this is way, WAY better than Taco Del Mar. We need a Chipotle in Edmonton! Are they in Canada anywhere at all? I may need to Google this later.Read more

    Bangor Inn and Suites

    September 12, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    That bathroom. Wow.

    Put it this way, American Standard made these blue bathroom fixtures in the 1930s. The color is called Clair De Lune Blue. This hotel feels just as vintage as the bed and breakfasts we were staying in earlier.

    Frankly I'm shocked the phone in here isn't rotary dial.

    Bed is actually quite comfy though. Slept really good last night and enjoyed a good breakfast of scrambled eggs, sausage and toast.Read more

    Bangor Police Station

    September 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    Leave it to us to go to a Police Station intentionally on vacation. The whole reason Matthew wanted us to come here was so he could see this famous duck, known as the Duck of Justice. QUACK.

    Paul Bunyan Statue

    September 11, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    Bangor is said to be The birthplace of Paul Bunyan. This statue is 31 feet high and weighs 3,700 pounds, not including its double-sided ax and peavey.

    Wilderness Edge Campground!

    August 15, 2016 in the United States

    Within striking distance of Mt.Katahdin 🗻is our new campground! Seconds upon parking Gordie is hard at work setting up his tent and Patrick is excavating a new territory. Much cooler here. A nice change from the humidity 😊🏕

  • Day4

    Let the games begin!

    August 15, 2016 in the United States

    Maddie and Angus didn't take long to break out the cribbage board! Let the battle begin!

    Naturally, Patrick charmed the camp owner into giving him a ride in his "tractor".

    Fueling up hikers with burgers and packing bags for a 5:30am departure to the Hunt Trail (aka Appalacian Trail) to summit Katahdin!Read more

    Hikers summitted!

    August 16, 2016 in the United States

    Received a text just now that our hikers have reached the summit of Mt.Katahdin! Congrats to our hikers for climbing the tallest mountain in Maine!

    Last night we were not sure if this feat would be possible as we learned of two changes since the last time Angus and Sarah hiked Katahdin.
    1) Campers are not allowed on Baxter State Park roads making getting to a trailhead a challenge. (To be honest, this could have been a rule for a while. This is simply the first time we have been here with a camper.)
    2) You now need a permit to hike ANY of the trails up Katahdin!!! What?!?! This absolutely NEVER occurred to us as every other time we simply arrived, camped (that we did know you need to reserve) and hiked. Oh boy, were we in a double bind.

    So, we talked to the owners of the Wilderness Edge Campground where we are staying and they gave us one of their three passes, that can be used any time up Abol or the Hunt trail, and drove our hikers in this morning at 5:30!!! They will be picking them up later this afternoon as well. Problem solved!!! Hooray to nice people! -Don't worry, we did pay them, but sooo worth it for this unforgettable experience! Hikers decided on the smoother Hunt Trail to the newly designed Abol Trail that just opened after a rockslide.

    Patrick and Sarah have manned the fort checking out the water supply in the camper, getting mani/pedi's and playing with some more "new" trains. Had to move some couch cushions to make our mega train, so fun!
