As we neared the border, we rode on one of the few two lane roads of the trip. There was a lot of construction but traffic moved well and was very light
We rode across the US border at Madawaska Maine at about 11:00am today and got to our checkpoint a few minutes later. We were delayed, not due to normal border traffic but because they decided to search our bag, bikes, etc. The good news is that they declined the obligatory cavity search (eeeewww). After this little experience, we got to the Four Corner's Park after a quick fill-up on gas and it is wonderful. We spent quite a bit of time there and shot a lot of pictures. The folks of Madawaska are VERY FRIENDLY and love bikers.
We got to the Post Office to send our documents in and met Glenn Bailey there. He is a retired postal worker and offered to shoot our picture. It may be the only combined shot we get on the trip. He also told us to look over the bulletin board at the Post Office which honors Four Corner's Riders. We stopped at the local Harley Davidson dealer and bought our Four Corners T-shirts. They even gave us a certificate for completing that corner at the dealer. After all this, we were on way again headed south for a change. Boy, that nice wind at our backs was now coming to haunt us. More on that later.
