Had diesel pumps but had to ask a guy with a car parked in the way to move so I could get out. There are some Irving stations but some are small, gas only and the one 'big' one in Calais was jammed with cars.
- steep grades that slow you down and kill your gas mileage
- crossed border at 'old', non commercial crossing in Calais to St. Stephens, NB. Made it under the first checkpoint booth (clearance) but had to maneuver around a second booth area
- they opened a new section of Canada HWY 1 that was not on my GPS so the road from St. Stephens to St. Johns is really smooth. Again not too much access to diesel in this stretch. More places once we got to Mocton.

On the way back, we took Cananda HWY 2 to Woodstock, NB and cut across to the start of I-95. Big truck stop in Houlton, ME. I-95 was a much better ride.

Be careful of construction in St. Johns. Clipped my passenger side mirror on a tight bridge in a construction zone.

Safe travels!
My biggest concern was that the road would be to narrow and may have one of those low covered bridges.Was the road very rough?

Road is more narrow than I-95 but not overly tight. The road does open up on up hills with a granny lane.

No low bridge concerns on the route.

We are at Lubec Maine at the sunset point cg. Right on the ocean and very nice but small. Recommend it or go to a cg in Eastport, Me. Eastport is a must see. Very quaint. Down east Maine is gorgeous with many views of the sea. Enjoying our visit in Maine. Hope you enjoy your trip

Have just traveled on route 9 from Bangor to Lubec,Maine. Good road with some hills and curves , but not a problem with our 32mh and toad. Know that it is rural. Make sure you have adequate fuel. Not much service available. Enjoy.
