Day 4: Got an early start this morning - - off at 6:30. Bob drove from Matamoras, PA to a closed rest area on I 495 in Mass, about 3 hours. Gena wanted to drive, so I gave up the wheel. She drove maybe twenty miles and it started raining, hard at times. The roads were really wet with LOTS of spray thrown up by the cars & trucks - - heavy traffic north bound and REALLY heavy traffic southbound. It quit raining about the time we went by Augusta, ME and was really nice the rest of the way. Had about a twenty mile detour onto ME 2 because of bridges being rebuilt on I-95. Still made it to Houlton, ME (about 600 miles) in 9.5 hours. Gas is really high up here - - paid 3.939/gal in CT. Expect that gas in Canada will be slightly higher. The camp ground in Houlton is really nice. Not many folks here tonight, lots of trees, grass and pretty level (4th night in a row of not having to unhook!!!) Comfortable temps here: 69 outside and 75 inside. Got dark on me, so will take a photo of the campground tomorrow and include in tomorrow's blog.
