Great pictures, your making me jealous as I sit here in MA, but will be up over Memorial Day. I guess I just have to wait.
yes, that does look very familiar pretty riding and fun roads down that way. Memorial day isn't too far away now, hope you have a great trip!

I am glad to your rides. My brother lives in Blue Hill and I have been interested in riding around Maine while I visiting. My brother works for the University of Maine for the GOMOOS group that keeps up the GOMOOS Bouys. I have a picture of it on my flickr page. The picture of the R/V Argo Maine is interesting, it is a boat they have used to deploy some of the bouys.

Anyway. Have a good time.

Thanks for the info and the links- When I snapped the shot I did not know the history on the boat. Hopefully you'll make it up one of these days for a ride!

Will definitely continue to add pics. We didn't do much riding this weekend- just a 2 up trip to Bangor on the Wee Strom to Bangor for errands on Saturday- I actually did snap some pics from the back of the bike because I was playing with the camera, but shoein didn't think anybody would be interested in them since it was just our boring old paved route to Bangor.

Rangely is a beautiful area- should be over that way sometime this summer to get some pics!

I'm glad that Dave is good with math- I didn't put it together either until he reminded me It would be great to catch up with you again one of these times that you are up.

Very nice, beautiful pics of your part of the country. We are already hitting 90 in Austin and you all are just coming out of the snow! I guess when it melts, you get the mud? Thanks for posting up!

joined up with a few ADVers this morning for a nice ride over in the Solon/Bingham area- actually everybody else is still riding, but I have been a bit under the weather, so I cut out a early due to fatigue.... had a great time exploring some dirt roads shoein and I had not been before- more riding than pics....

meeting up in Carmel:
BKMLWR



dtrembley


Dave....who I do not think is on ADV..... yet.... but has a very pretty red KLR and appeared to be having a good time:



Met RapidTransit and his GS800 in Athens



Kind of a chilly morning (~45F) and the controller for my heated jacket is on the blink again (they are sending me replacements, just haven't gotten the new one yet) and forgot I that the gloves have their own controller, so my hands got a bit chilly- BKMLWR let me borrow these which definitely helped:


Then over to the Lobster Camp in Solon to meet up with Lobster Grrl & Chromer:




Then a bit of dirt- here is where we got to less pics, more riding:
Lobster Grrl

BKMLWR


Dave:


stopped for breakfast- great opportunity for a shot of the whole lineup, but the restaurant was closed- so ended up at Irving for breakfast:

Rode a bit more with everybody on the dirt and then headed home. Last I heard from shoein they were in Parkman heading for Blanchard on some nice challenging trails.... I definitely made the right decision to break off for home as I am pooped- had a great time riding though- hadn't been on my bike for well over a week and I have definitely been missing it!

ok, here's a few pics from our "boring" ride, also went to a conference for work in Bar Harbor last weekend, and did a hike around Jordan pond, so a few from there as well. Wish the sun had been out for better pics, but we have not seen the son in 2 weeks (I think our boring day was the last time we saw it)















Jordan Pond, Acadia National Park
