The Maritimes are about 12~22 hours, depending on where you go. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are certainly within range if I have the time. Put us down for at week. New England is quite a bit closer

Serious question! 1)If I remember right you were interested in the Maritines trip, Yes or No?
2)If yes what kind of time will you be taking off to make that trip? (Week, 3weeks, month or as long as it takes)
3)If unable to make the Maritines, are you interested in a GC somewhere in NE?

These questions really apply to any mutant to aid in planning conversations!

I'm already dreaming of lobsters and blueberries!
Youse guys from Arkansas are so easily confused with details. Its Lobsters and Steak that go together for a meal and then for dessert its Blueberries and pie that go together. Sheesh, this'll be that last time I'll 'splain that to you loosie.

Sure New England is a bit closer, like five or six days closer. Depends on ones perspective don't it?

Finger Lakes area of New York is downright purddy too.

Speaking of mental confusion, i need clarification.......
The Maritimes? Are you speaking of the Canadian Maritimes, or New England maritimes? Can you be a tad more specific? Before we possibly consider, i need more info? Mainly as to the farthest spot...... Click image for larger version

I have a Toy Run buddy and his wife on facebook who is doing a Rock To Rock and back journey. They have finally arrived on the Eastern Rock and are touring there. They left here over two months ago. Can a campground on PEI not far from "Green gables" be looked at for a GC? 6000 kilometers each way ain't all that bad.

Youse guys? Dennis, you sound like my Larry...... But they shorten it to youse..... In Baltimore..... He may be fom south of the Mason Dixon line, but he speaks with a northern accent.... With 10 years of Europe thrown in.......

Ok Martines as in Canadian.....
Actually western Pennsylvania or western New York might be good areas for GC,
for those who choose not to go on to Canada. Might be more reachable for some who are limited time, too.

Western PA? We are there, and I will have a few special cases of homebrew then.

Curb thy enthusiasm Ted. The "Poopa" and confederates neglected to tell you about the mop and bucket that new guys have to tote around. Clean up duty is the sneaky unmentioned final ritual.

She got to visit St. Andrews and was completely smitten by the beauty, the history, the "ghosts" there. She never plays any more, but is usually glued to the tv on Saturday and Sunday afternoons during golf season.

It's a fascinating area, golf included. The University goes back centuries, the castle and cathedral ruins are wonderfully evocative, and then there's the shore. I love that we have an excuse to visit there: family. ☺️

Earlene asked if she should go ahead of me and park the car. I agreed and off she went. I followed, and as I'm going along I kept wondering what the noise was. I thought it was a bearing in the front wheel. I kept listening but i could not identify it. We have a pull thru (if you could call it that) and I pulled in. Not level at all with the front a lot higher than the rear. I decided to back up and at that time Earlene said, "Come here and look at this!" Somehow when I was storing the tow bar it did not seat correctly (Blue Ox). The drive from check-in to the site is about 1/4 miles. It had dragged and did its dragging wonder on the tow bar and when I backed up it dug in and bent one leg. The cover was shredded. Not a good situation. Anyhow, Blue Ox came through again and will ship directly to me since there is not a dealer withing 100 miles. Only $1015 later and the new tow bar will be here Wednesday by 10:00 a.m. I'm footing the little extra for next day delivery.

Cheer up Mel, things could be a lot worse.

Pardon my French in advance: well, Crap! Really sorry, but at least the fix is available.
