Day 4 Aug 5th: Lobster Tales and Other Stories

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features • TAGS: .

<– Day 3 August 4th: Maine’ly Driving Late Day 5 Aug 6th: Scooting Across to Nova Scotia –>

2019-08-05-sanford-me-newbrunswick-merlin-work3

Jim, Kevin and Merlin parked for the night Monday night at the Rockwood campground in Saint John, NB.

Amazingly, the Canadians allowed the Newfoundland 2019 (or Rust) crew into Canada yesterday. Clearly they must be desperate for tourists! Well, that and the fact that New Brunswick is so far from the Yukon that they probably still haven’t received word about our 2017 visit to Canada. Whew!

2019-08-05-sanford-me-saintjohn-map

My guess as to the route they took on Monday August 5th.

The crew started the morning in Sanford, Maine, at a Walmart Parking lot.

2019-08-05-sanford-me-newbrunswick-merlin-walmart

Beginning at the Sanford, Maine, Walmart.

68365362_10219063138785948_6148307046421757952_n

My guess is that the crew hit Highway One along the Maine coast line, then followed it to Bar Harbor. Now, if you are new to this adventure, you may be wondering, why doesn’t the narrator know what’s happening? Well, that’s because the crew’s phones are being jammed and they are unable to communicate with the rest of the Western Hemisphere … it’s the only possible explanation. So, I’ll make a few literary leaps …

I HOPE they got themselves a Lobster Roll, as great ones can be found all along the coast (the best one we found in 2013 was actually in Massachusetts). Even some McDonalds sells lobster rolls during the summer! Just don’t fall for lobster rolls that brag about their Langostino lobster (It’s no more lobster than Almond milk is milk). Here’s a lobster they may have seen in Bar Harbor.

This sums up much of the Maine we saw in 2013: Lobster, Lobster Rolls, and Ice Cream. We saw more signs for those three items than anything else!

From Bar Harbor, they likely followed the picturesque Highway 1 north to the border with New Brunswick. Fortunately, Merlin has saved me from using stock photos at this point, as he shared a few pics along the route:

“This is a 1959 FH model zamboni built by Frank Zamboni himself. The serial number is FH197 less than 20 of these were ever built. It is the high capacity model designed for outdoor ice rinks. It needs a complete restoration it’s built on a Jeep cj5 frame and Jeep 4cyl concerted to propane. It was running and being used in Lake Placid up until about 6 years ago when a new machine was purchased. At that time this one started to be stripped down to restore bc it’s such a fascinating piece of history, but have run out of time to put into it. I am going to put the listing up for 7 days no reasonable offer will be refused”

Day 3 August 4th: Maine’ly Driving Late

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features • TAGS: .

<– Day 2 Aug 3rd: Newfoundland Found, First Group Camp | Day 4 Aug 5th: Lobster Tales and Other Stories –>

The crew’s goal today was to reach Sanford, Maine.

They began the day bright and early, as this photo shows. I think we all know that it’s the Gladiator that makes the scene so impressive. They had roughly 8 hours of driving ahead of them, so, literally, they were both mainly driving and Maine’ly driving.

2019-08-04-morning

Today, shortly after leaving Bill’s property in Monticello, the Newfoundland crew had to bid adieu to Russ. Due to a family health issue, he felt an obligation to be with his family. We all wish him and his wife Stacey all the best in this difficult time.

2019-08-04-russ-sendoff-3 2019-08-04-russ-sendoff-2 2019-08-04-russ-sendoff-1After goodbye, the crew lined up for a cool photo:

2019-08-04-parking-lot-lined-up

Then, they began their trek to their destination, a spot near Portland, Maine. I do not keep the location secret so they can avoid the paparazzi; nor are they hoping to avoid all their adoring fans. Instead, I just don’t know! But, when I do, I will share the news! Their route should be close to the one shown below.

2019-08-04-monticello-portlandme-map

Here they are on their trek, a photo taken by Pete.This sure looks a lot like Alaska to me … I wondering they are sneaking back there without me? Guys? Guys … you are breaking up.

2019-08-04-on-the-road

At some point, the group pulled into a cozy Walmart late last night. If you’ve never stayed at a Walmart parking lot, they are great, free places to pull in for the night. There’s even a list of which Walmarts don’t support camping, as not all do.

And, as I mentioned to Jim, the pro tip of the day is that the Super Center Walmarts all seem to have a bathroom at the rear of the store that, in my experience, is cleaner and less crowded.
