Sep 27, 2017 - Palmyra Golf and Campground, Palmyra, ME

Today we drove from Trenton, ME to Palmyra, ME. After arrival we went ovwr to the New Balance factory store and then an ice cream at the stand. The ice cream was the better of the two. Upon returning we had hot dogs and fixings. Rod, our wagon master, asked Hellen to marry him at dinner. After that we had a campfire and went to bed.

Sep 22, 2016 - Palmyra Maine

We had a very pleasant drive from Palmyra to Bar Harbor. We were on one of the Interstate highways today for a short time but most of the trip was 2 lane road. Arrived at the campground and got all set up. Candy took a ride down to Bar Harbor, I stayed back.

Sep 21, 2016 - Palmyra Maine

Our plan was to drive to Bar Harbor today but plans change. We decided we would drive to Palmyra Maine and spend the night at Palmyra Golf Club and Campground. That only leaves us with 71 miles tomorrow to reach Bar Harbor. Our drive from Woodstock New Hampshire was very nice up thru the White Mountains. The road looked to be a challenge on the map, it is Route 112 or also called Kancamagus Highway. To our surprise it was a great 2 lane road with only one switch back that wasn’t bad at all. There was very little traffic and had some great...

Aug 21, 2010 - Moose Crossing RV Park

We got up this morning to a very chilly 47 degrees. We had to turn the heat on for the first time in a while. Today was another travel day. We drove about 150 miles to Palmyra, near Bangor, Maine. We are looking forward to exploring the area. The campground we are in has "moose crossing" signs. They even have a picture proving they had a moose in the camp. :-) My fingers are still crossed.

Jun 19, 2010 - Back to the United States

Linda took pictures of Loomcrofters, an idyllic setting looking over the meadows toward the St. John River, specializing in tartans, now down to just one 70 year old male weaver filling orders, appointment only, fascinating talking to the locals about the history) and went to the FiberFest. Ron explored Gagetown. Left Gagetown about noon and drove past Fredricton and left the TCH on PH 3 heading for Maine. PH 3 turned into PH 4 and we crossed the border between McAdam, NB and Vanceboro, ME. We then followed SR 6, a little of US 2 at...

Sep 27, 2009 - Palmyra, ME - Peak Color in Northern Maine

(Ron Writing) This afternoon we took a drive on some of the backroads in northern Maine to enjoy more of the Fall colors. We drove south on Hwy 201 to Moscow, ME and then east on Hwy 16 to Sangerville. From Sangerville we drove south on Highways 23, 7, and 11 to Palmyra. Most of this drove was on paved mountain roads with very little traffic. Most of the time we were driving through very beautiful forest land which appears to be at peak color. The trees are beautiful. The weather was a little dismal with light rain almost all day. Our mail...

Sep 9, 2008 - rain in maine

We are now in Maine. We left our campsite a about 9 o’clock this morning and hit the road in a rain storm. We had only driven about 10 miles when we came to the state line. After crossing into Maine, we ran into road construction and got to drive on dirt, no on mud, roads for about 25 miles. These roads are very muddy roads that are narrow and have a ton of truck traffic, most being log trucks. And it kept on raining and the workers kept on working. When we did finally get back on pavement, it was as rough as a dirt road and very foggy. Not...

Jul 22, 2008 - Palmyra, ME

On Saturday, we drove from Freedom, NH to Palmyra, ME. We made a stop in Naples, ME to see Camp Takajo where Kyle (Bruce’s nephew) was a counselor last summer … looks like fun if you enjoy hundreds of rowdy pre-teens. Also, we went to the capitol building in Augusta, and we ate at Al’s Pizza, voted Augusta’s best for 12 years … it surely hit the spot for us. Then, on Monday, we went for a morning run up and down the country road where we are staying. In the afternoon, we walked to the adjacent golf course and got in 9 holes just before the...
