Ah...
Memories of Maine.

I used to ride my bicycle up that road, and race cars on the way down.

Thanks for reminding me how nice the East Coast is.

Very cool. Was there in a car years ago. Would love to take the bike back up there. The coast of Maine is a great place.

What time of year was that shot? We were told that road can be bumper to bumper certain times of the year. We went right after Labor Day but before the leaves change and it was not crowded at all.

I have two Contour cameras....one is the GPS model the other is a Roam...They both take great video however the biggest draw back to them is the audio stinks...picks up too much wind noise. The Roam is better than the GPS. They have a new model that allows you to plug in an external mic.
I been using a Zoom H1 Audio recorder with a lavalier mic stuffed under the padding of my helmet when I do motoblogging.

That was late August, it was pretty crowded...it gets worse when the cruise ships are docked especially downtown Bar Harbor.

Very scenic. I went there a few times when I lived in Maine but unfortunately only in a cage which is not nearly as nice as doing it on two wheels.

One of the facts in the video is incorrect. The first state in America to see the sunrise EVERY day is Alaska. Part of the Aleutian Islands are on the other side of the International Date Line.

Technically that's correct but since its crosses the date line its kind of cheating. To be perfectly accurate I should have said Eastern US or lower 48....

However fact checking on wikipedia it says this about the International Date line
Quote:
It then passes midway between Alaska's Aleutian Islands and Russia's Commander Islands before returning southeast to 180. Thus all of Siberia is to the west of the International Date Line, and all of Alaska is to the east of that line.
