Made it back into the USA today! You know Canada does not seem so much like a "foreign" country, but small things like the price of groceries, fuel, beer and wine, make you appreciate the USA!! We are staying at Balsam Cove Campground in East Orland, Maine. It is a very nice park on a beautiful lake, very secluded and quiet. We're about 30 miles from Bar Harbor and Acadia Park. Once we got settled, we decided to check at the office for some place local for supper. The lady at the office recommended we got on down the road to Bucksport....

Well we decided that we would take a trip through the North Eastern states on our way to Toronto...since we had already been through Quebec once we wanted to change the scenery. It was really hot driving down and Jody even got the start of a Trucker Tan (check out the seat belt line) while driving. We made it across the border into Maine and we stopped for dinner in a small town called Hancock before heading to East Orland to camp for the evening. While we were in Hancock we stumbled across some Millar Western Lumber. Oh, and this little...
