LisaS & shoein's Maine adventures

We live in central Maine and do a lot of day trips around the state- occasionally venturing farther. Sometimes I take a lot of pics, sometimes just a few. So figured I would keep a running thread of our adventures for anybody that is interested.

Index:
2013 Rides:
Gaspe/Quebech

2012 Rides
Unity Train Station
Aroostook RIP/Northern Maine/New Brunswick
Abbot to Greenville Trail ride
Pittsfield to Binham Trail Ride
New Brunswick
Shoeins B-day- Dirt ride from home


2011 Rides:
Greenville-Jackman-The forks
Castine-Deer Isle-Stonington
Solon/Bingham
Belgrade Lakes
Sunrise Trail, More Sunrise Trail





Starting with first rides from this year- March 19- Plymouth, ME:


April first we had the worst snow storm of the year- about a foot of snow- terrible driving- within 2 days roads were completely clear- we decided not to plow as we figured it would melt and didn't want to tear things up- so the biggest adventure was just getting out of the driveway:

just out for an hour or two locally- didn't stop for any pics....

April 23- Greenville-Jackman-The Forks

Rode up to Greenville for lunch at Kelly's landing-

Mooshead lake:


I love riding while the snowmobilers are still out:



views from Kelly's landing:



Route 15 to Jackman- some places we rode through still had over 2 feet of snow- but roads were nice and clear:


From Jackman rode down through the forks- stunning views with the snow and the trees still bare- but all of the pull off areas were snowed in, so no picks- but lots of fun riding the twisties- stopped at the forks- less snow in the rest area- then gassed up and headed home

May 1st

Met up with our friend Dan in Old Town- decided to hit the dirt. I tend to lack confidence on some of the tougher stuff- so shoein and I do a bit of Hike & Bike- fortunately Dan was pretty patient with this, and it gave me a good chance to take some pics & videos of the guys:





This is where we turned around- Jerry coming back from scouting up ahead:


Dan applying mud to his new bike:


shoein bringing my wr back through- shame he's not having any fun here (he actually loves hike and bike 'cause he gets to ride it twice)

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.
