Our trip from Fredericton to Edmundston was 166 miles with a steady rain all the way. We had a lot more color in the trees on this trip but with the steady downpour there was no opportunity for pictures, sorry. There was a two mile detour as we left Fredericton to get the oil changed on the Mothership which was accomplished in short order and we arrived in Edmundston about 12:30. We are staying at the Riverside RV Park which is a nice little park about two miles off TCH 2. We are in a long, narrow pull-through site with 50 amps and water. There are nicer, wider, 30 amp full hookup sites that are back-in but are in the trees and make it more difficult to get through to the satellite. This is a football weekend so the satellite wins!!

Shortly after getting set up, we crossed back over to Maine at Madawaska and made the 24 mile trip to the northern end of US 1. We expected a sign or some kind of declaration that we had reached the end but found nothing? The rain had slacked off a little bit so we tried taking some pictures of this side trip but apologize for the rainy, blurred images. Just before crossing back over into Canada we filed up the Libby for 2.899/gallon, which, while high, is so much less than we have been paying for the last three months. I also stopped at a supermarket and picked at some cheese and they had Yellow Tail Shiraz on sale for $6.00 a bottle, so I picked up a couple of them since Canadian customs limits you to two bottle per person and I knew that was more than I would need for the next two weeks. Little did I know at that time that Canadian customs only allows you to bring in those two bottle per person duty-free if you have been in the USA for at least 48 hours. OOPS!!! That little oversight cost me another 10.91 as we crossed over into Canada again, but it was still cheaper than the normal $15/bottle common in Canada.

Saturday and Sunday we spent in the Mothership watching football. Them Gators really stepped up for a change. I believe we may have found something in Trey Burton and the rest of the team looked good too! It does make me a little more optimistic about next weeks game with the Tide.

Tomorrow we head for Quebec City for a three night stay.
