Where I stayed
Econolodge, Bangor, Maine
After placing the garbage at the curb, saying goodbye to a friend and Bruno, dropping the tax odds and ends at the accountant's and breakfast at The Big Stop, full speed ahead. We drove through New Brunswick...guess what it was doing! We drove through Maine...guess what it was doing! We HAVEN'T escaped winter.
We picked up a coupon travel book at the Maine visitor center and scouted out motel options. We opted for the Econolodge in Bangor, thinking we could become familiar with it prior to our July stay with the motorcycle gang on the way to Grand Rapids. We asked about rates that might be better than the coupon, and sure enough our CAA was a few dollars cheaper. The clerk told us they had just had a freaky storm, dumping fresh snow very quickly. We hadn't missed it, though. White out conditions while driving. The Ground Round was close by, and we indulged in the all you can eat ribs, and a piece of peanut butter pie, very much like Graeme's.
Tomorrow, we will escape winter, I'm sure, perhaps, I hope.
