Day 14: Woke up early this AM and got off by 6:30, even after dumping the holding tanks. Kerry was standing outside their trailer as we left. When we said our good byes last night (we had such a good time together, that was really sad), they did not know where they were going to go today - - just that they didn't plan to stay where they were.

Our drive was 436 uneventful miles -- about 9 hours. Just as crossed into New Brunswick, we saw a complicated array of towers and wires that was the Canadian National Radio Broadcast facility - - looked just like Marconi's setup. Thought we saw Jim standing in the middle of all those wires. Traffic was mostly pretty light. Had some drizzly rain. Temperature dropped noticeably when it started raining. We had a tail wind in the AM then a pretty strong head wind in the afternoon. It took 50 minutes to get through US Customs - - very slow. Gas prices are a LOT lower here in the states ~$3.85 compared to $5.10+ in Canada. It took us three or four hours to get on line. They were having issues with their

Can't see all the wires very well - - see the close-ups included
router. We are staying at My Brother's Campground (same place we stayed on the way up).

Tomorrow we'll head on down to Elsworth, ME for the wedding on Sat. Sat is supposed to be a really nice day (Clear and a Hi of 81).
