Up at 0600 and on the road by 0700. Hauling ass to Maine today. At least it wasn't raining when I left North Sydney, Nova Scotia.
It was slightly overcast and about 46. Ran into some fog, but had a mostly uneventful ride.
Stopped to get gas and who pulls into the gas station, but the three guys from Labrador who were on the ferry …
Up and 0500 hours to a dry morning, thankfully.
BUT, had to make a quick trip to the emergency room at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center. Nothing life-threatening, thankfully.
Didn't get on the road by 0600 hours, so we juggled our route from the "scenic" one to the "super-fast, I'm from New England, let's go 85" one. Made it …

In the Old Methodist Cemetery I saw the memorial to those lost at sea. Close by was the grave maker of Mr. Murray Harmon Manzer.

... with many of the people in the surrounding community. All events are well supported. The hall had room to seat 48 people at a time. When we left they had already served 117 people. The breakfast included 2 types of baked beans and everything else you might expect at a buffet brunch. On top of that there was a basket of homemade doughnuts on the table as well. I would not need lunch. I arrived at Kings Landing 90 minutes ahead of ...
We had a long days drive, just a little over 300 miles to Woodstock, New Brunswick! We are staying right on the St. John River. It is a little expensive but the view is nice and it seems like all the campgrounds in Canada have been on the expensive side compared to the states.

Second time staying here. First time I had a great room, but it smelled like some old Arabic man's cologne. Room was clean and looked new. This time, off in the "motel" part in what obviously smells like a "pet" room. They didn't ask me if I minded a pet room. TV isn't set-up, keeps getting a weird Hitachi banner across the top, blow dryer doesn't work. At least this place has a washer and dryer.
