(My girl on the trail in Georgia, our map reader, says she is skipping this hike)
What do you think of when you hear Benedict Arnold? Traitor, turn coat or a different way to serve an egg?
On our trip over we stopped at a neat little quiet rest area on the Kennebec River. We know the Kennebec mainly because it is the only river (way up stream from here) that AT hikers must be ferried across by a volunteer in a canoe. The Kennebec is a dangerous river because the depth changes very swiftly and in the past hikers have lost their packs and some their lives.
I like to read plaques, this is one telling about General Arnold, a well respected member of George Washington’s Colonial Army. Interesting reading, now I guess I will try to find out more about Benedict.
I didn’t take a picture of the other picnic table, there was a man there having his lunch. It looked like he might be a local worker, taking a break. What a relaxing place for it.
I would imagine many great meals are taken from this river.
Looking back on this trip to Bangor, the road was great. I had to squeeze thru some areas of ‘road and bridge work’ but all in all the trip was VERY GOOD.
The scenery was wonderful and very little traffic on the two lane road. I love that kind of drive. You can only find that up here in the North East or west of the Mississippi to the Rockies. Makes driving this rig a breeze.
Well off to a couple thrift stores to see if I can find a good metal cup and pot.
Thanks for reading this stuff.
Heard from Frances (Fred’s lovely wife & one of my girl friends) Fred & Gordon have their tickets to Bangor. Things are looking good.
What was popular when you were a teenage? This ‘32 is much more elaborate, but it is the type of ‘Hot Rod’ I remember in the mid ‘50’s.
