Aug 5, 2019 - Repaired

There was a mistake involving the Elliott house in Scotsburn. Most of you could probably care less but a few previous Elliott's and Hill's should get the undated information that one prior Elliott provided. The woman mentioned in the previous blog entry does not live in the Elliott house, she lives in the house next door. Both Ross and Marge were certain the woman said she lived in the Elliott house but it seems both of them did not hear her correct. However, the prior Elliott did confirm the woman's culinary skills were lacking. The...

Aug 2, 2019 - Addendum to previous message

In our last blog entry a few items were left out and we feel they need to be provided. First off we need to mention Marge's cousin Neal and his wife Beverley who invited Ross and Marge to their house in Fredericton Monday evening for dinner and for a shower since there was no water available for Ross and Marge at the RV World. Beverley also prepared a great chicken dinner for the four of us. Marge's cousin Rosa and her husband Brian had invited us for dinner on Tuesday but because of the miracle inverter that was made available on Tuesday...

Jul 31, 2019 - Leaving Canada

The trip home began Sunday morning July 28 and they drove to Moncton, New Brunswick where they stayed in the Campers City RV Resort. Monday morning at 0530 Ross got out of bed and started to get ready for a very long drive from Moncton to Bangor, Maine where they were going to meet some friends for a few days. Unfortunately Ross looked at the Inverter information screen and the Fault light was illuminated and the fault was "Internal Bridge" failure. Ross got out the Inverter Trouble information and he followed the instruction several time...

Aug 4, 2018 - day of rest

This is a day to chill, pick up and review our mail that had been collected since June and forwarded to us by Carl, a great friend back home in Olympia. Carl and Annie have looked after Nancy since her husband Richard passed away. Without them watching after us, life would be much more difficult. Met up with with new friends from our tour: Nancy, Alan, Sally and Jerry. This down time to recover from the constant travel and the potholes feels really good. Continuing work on this blog.

Aug 3, 2018 - Return to US

Our travels continue to the “Pumpkin Patch r/v park” west of Bangor, Maine. We crossed back into the US at Calais, Maine after having stopped along the Highway to pick delicious sweet wild blue berries that seem to be growing everywhere. This is a very nice campground and great place to stay over.

Aug 26, 2017 - Full Circle

While the caravan was officially over when we had our Hitch-up breakfast in Saint John, New Brunswick, some of us went back to Hermon, Maine where we started, adn I call that the end of the caravan. I followed Sue & Kathy, and Joanne & Alice one last time. We came across the border with no problems, but now they come onboard the motor homes to check for people! They ask about root vegetables because they are not allowed (a staple on farms in Canada) and about liquor (only a 12 pack or one bottle of hard liquor is allowed). We stopped for...

Aug 1, 2017 - Pumpkin Patch RV Resort (7/24 - 7/26/17)

We have returned to the States. We crossed back over the border at 11:10 a.m. on Thursday (7/24) into Houlton, ME. It was nice to be back, but a bit melancholy to leave such a beautiful place. We stayed in a very nice park. There was a restaurant next to it and when we checked in we were given a tag for 10% a meal there. We were in site #69. It was a very large lot on Tomato Row with woods behind us. Some of the other roads are Sweet Pea, Potato and other garden items. Very cute! The first night Tim found a poker tourney nearby and joined...

Jun 28, 2017 - Landing in Maine

Woohoo! The time has finally arrived to start our caravan into the Canadian Maritime Provinces! Everyone who is going arrived by this afternoon and almost all of us went to a local restaurant to get acquainted with each other. That was hard with so many people in one room! We were at 5 or 6 tables so I got to meet the people I rode with at ate next to. Flo & Dana were at our table as well, so we caught up with Spring travels and news. Thanks to Flo, I have a picture of us before the trip - with very short hair! We will see what we look like...

Sep 26, 2015 - Hermon ME

Thursday's drive was pretty painless, past some beautiful lakes and small towns till we got onto I-95 north towards Bangor and pulled into the Pumpkin Patch RV Resort in Hermon, ME just about 1:30. Now, this does not really qualify as an RV resort, but it is nice, quiet, the sites are big and level and the Wi-Fi is pretty awesome so as far as we're concerned they can call it whatever they want. Another big plus is the fact that for a mere $15 you can wash your coach and car. The campgrounds that let you do that are few and far between so we...

Aug 26, 2015 - Hermon, Maine

This morning we left Hartt Island RV Park around 1000 hours Atlantic Time for the 175 mile trek to Herman, Maine which is located on the south side of Bangor, Maine. The weather when we left Fredericton was cloudy and the temperature was around 67 degrees F. Traffic was very light and the road was good for most of the time with some rough spots thrown in I presume by the Province just to remind us that things could be worse. There were two sections under construction where they are re-surfacing the lanes but the traffic was so light that we...

2015 New York Trip

Aug 13, 2015 - The University of Maine

One of the downsides of Pumpkin Patch is that there isn’t a good area for running. After running the road a couple of times, I decided to look elsewhere. Some internet research revealed that there were some paths on the University of Maine Campus in Orono about 15 miles to the north. Yesterday the three of us drove there to scout it out and walk/run some of the paths. We discovered a couple of miles of paved bike path on the campus, but more importantly, a bunch of miles of relatively smooth dirt trails in the woods and fields some of which...

Aug 10, 2015 - Back in the USA

Yesterday we left the Burkes and Amherst and headed east past Fredricton to the border crossing at Holder, ME. We had another easy border crossing and headed south on I-95 to a familiar RV park in Hermon, ME. This is our third visit to Pumpkin Patch. It is a really nice full-hookup park with an adjacent restaurant. We will be here for six nights (wanted seven but site isn’t available) and then head for Vermont where we plan to spend ten nights.
