We left our rental early at 8:45 and headed down the road. 95 out of Bangor is pretty uneventful and I saw many things along the way that I wish to go back and explore. The Military Land Transportation museum in Bangor, the Kennebunkport area, and the USS Albacore in Portsmouth, but alas again there is just not enough time to do it all.
