Going to try Bar Harbor area next year

Set your GPS for the Buffalo area. Go visit with family. Younger we both are not getting. Always liked western NY.

I already have reservations for next Memorial Day in Ithaca NY and in Maine the week after back at Blueberry pond outside of Free Port. I will probably come up a little early to spend time in Erie and Western NY.😉

Bar Harbor and Arcadia is a great area. Try eating at Geddy's on main https://geddys.com/menu/. There are a lot of good places to eat in Bar Harbor and the area.

Lots of places in Free Port including LLBeans.

Been to Maine quite a few times over the years as a trucker, but never as an RV owner. Probably just about always ran the GW enroute until I wised up later and realized that were other roads to get there. Never questioned it. Maybe it was the traffic jam after midnight on a Saturday night or the guy running frantically along the shoulder to get to his car before a tow truck hooked to it. Cell phones were not widely available yet. Probably broke down and had to walk back to the previous exit ramp to find a phone and call for help. Doubt that the tow truck driver was there that quickly to help. Maybe to impound the vehicle or just steal it? I  guarantee that next season we will leave early and run gently to Maine. Maybe the Turning Stone Casino Campground. It really is a nice one. The area also has the Erie Canal Locks to visit. That was quite a project and it is still used commercially.

Joe/ I am a beer lover. Will have to take your advice and Bill's advice on eateries will be observed also. I wish that it was next summer already. By then my Bride will surely be ready to go. It is still a struggle for her. She meets with her Surgeon next week for the follow up visit after the knee replacement.

Just a note, Turning Stone Casino Campground is in Verona NY not Main.☺️ Nice area I was close buy but didn't stop last month. I was at Waterloo Harbor Campground. Then up on the Saint Lawrence River at Merry Knoll Campground.

Do you have your Passport? I would recommend the Canadian side of the falls and McLaren Campground further up the Saint Lawrence River There is also a interesting place there called Upper Canada Village. uppercanadavillage.com

If you need more info let me know.

The Turning Stone Casino Campground would be on our way to Maine.  We would take a leisurely trip on our way to Maine. Just waiting on the Maine State Bird to be out of season(Black Fly). Good advice on passports . We will get that going as soon as Betty is better. The pics and other stuff are done in the York County Courthouse. Same place that I get my carry license every five years. Would leave them at home on our travels through NY and the possible visit into Canada.  Thanks again. Got a year to get it done

I'm a little late on this post, sorry.

When we go on our 61 day, Fantasy Maritime trip next June, the guns will be at home.  Remembering to remove a gun is easy!  Make darn sure you also remove all clips and any ammunition you got lying around, both in coach and toad...

If you value your sanity, stay far, far away from the DW bridge at anytime!  Both in coach or toad.

GPS?  Can't stand it.  Linda has to use it, no map or direction sense!  GPS works 30% of the time, my map works 100% of the time...I just look at the map, before we leave and it's in my mind for the day!  Today I had to recall some roads, I had not used in 15+ years, to get around a pile up in Houston.  While Linda was busy with her GPS, I by-passed it all, in no traffic...and we lost no time in driving from Galveston to Burnet, TX.  5 hours as usual.
