it's only 10+ driving hours from Boston and I believe the only sucky super-slab portion is the 3.5 hours of I-95 to Bangor.
Isn't there a ferry that you can take to cut the slab time down?
Awesome Mike! We're you riding or driving? Going out tomorrow morning if you're still in the 'hood...I was in the area so I stopped at the Swiss Farm Inn. Made reservations with Joyce...then went down to the store to talk with Roger.

Used to be a ferry leaving Portland to Yarmouth but they left, now operating from Bar Harbor, and website says they are having delays this year, rerouting passengers, etc... when I tried to use them 2 years ago hey simply cancelled 24 hours before the trip and we had to slab it up the Maine coast. Maybe they will solve their problems by next year? right now it's $99 per person plus $101 for the bike for a 3 hour ride, 7 hour ferry to Newfoundland cost 1/2 as much. Only reason to take this Cat ferry is to avoid going up/down the coast if you want to go to Yarmouth NS, saves you few miles, but the best part of NS is Cape Breton, which is all the way at the top of NS, taking this ferry saves you no miles and adds time.there is a ferry but I don't know if that cut's out mostly slab or a lot of the scenic riding...bet there's folks around here that have done this trip....Dmitry?
I have a friendly place in Maine with lot's of parking, it's between Portland and Bangor so it's only gonna save me like 4 hours, takes longer to load/unload the damn trucklove it. and how amazing will it be if Chuck is all shiny and up for the trip. let's put some thought into doing this, it turns out one of us knows someone with a place in Maine to park trucks/trailers so we wouldn't have to slab the boring part.
Ya Dad , good fun in the hot summer sun!!! Nothing like a dip in the White River when it's hot and humid out...Rich showed me a very good time and provided a very comfortable bed Sunday night. Rode up early Sunday to try and beat the heat. Stopped and said hey to Roger at Swiss Farm, stopped back in later for The World's Best Breakfast. It was hot all day Sunday. Fortunately, the White River is quite chill, and 2 dips kept us cool before and after some nice riding. Rode home in the rain today, totally worth it.
