The End of the Journey

After that wonderful experience driving through the Delaware Water Gap road, we drove through 4 states today to make it to Maine!

On the 10th, we stopped at the welcome center as we entered Connecticut.  That stop was a nice respite...where we met and visited with a couple from Maine.  They were going to overnight at Cabela's, exit 42, in Maine.  Sounded perfect at this point.  Decision was made.  We got there around suppertime, and walked over to Famous Dave' the rain!!!

Hey, it's not raining in Connecticut!!! 

Hartford, Connecticut...the capitol building...beautiful.

I can take the busy traffic as long as it's not raining.

We had a very nice night at Cabela's.  We could see light at the end of the tunnel.  Tomorrow with only 200 miles to go, our journey to Maine (Moosehorn) was coming to an end.  It rained on us the whole way...and I did not even mind.

Now it is May 11th.  Happy Anniversary (52) to us and Happy Mother's day to all mothers.  We are now turning into the refuge.  Somebody is following us...Mike Heath, forester, was pulling in as well after being away at a meeting in West Virginia.  He welcomed us back and took the time to make sure everything was okay before he went home.  A really nice guy.  We got set the rain!!!

We made it safe and sound.

Dirigo...I LEAD!!!

Until next time...


  1. I'm really looking forward to hearing about Moosehorn. I think my friends Kirk and Pam Wood volunteered there a few years back.

  2. Glad you made it safe and sound. Know how you feel about all the rain. Seems like that has been all that it has going on here in Illinois too!

  3. Happy Anniversary! We've stayed at that Cabela's... and (I'm almost embarrassed about this) Bill got a free dinner at Famous Dave's. Long story... You being at Moosehorn kinda makes me homesick....

  4. Happy Anniversary and congratulations on (finally) making it to Maine. Hopefully you'll see plenty of sunshine from here on out...


  5. Glad you made it safely. Hope the rest of the summer is less stressful, and drier.
    Happy anniversary. 52 to is really something to be proud of.

  6. why happy anniversary and what a great place to spend it...
