    day six

    left preque isle and rode the bangor aroostook rr bed atv yrail into van buren. very wet. some tough stretches of freshly turned soft dirt that had us down to a crawl. sheared. a bolt off the klr's left foot peg and sat the ride into van buren. once there we located a machine shop who extracted the bolt and we were on our way into canada. we hit the railbed trail just outside of town and a few miles in the vintage bmw's rear shock let go. we managed a trail fix and limped back to van buren. we are attempting repairs.

    Hope you get going soon Ernie. The local weather forecasters are calling for a low pressure system with rain currently over Chicago to stall over New England beginning next Tuesday afternoon and not clear out until Saturday. That same system will allegedly be in northern Maine on Thursday through Monday. Wish we had the weather The Jersey Boys had in '09.

    day eight. we left van buren in the morning and crossed back into canada. the woman at customs recognized us from yesterday and was eager to hear our story. she waved us past with a smile and we picked up the trail where we had exited the day before. the ride to sanit quentin was beautiful. we fueled up in saint quentin and headed south on 17 to the acadian land management gate. the fee to enter the land was $32 canadian for each bike. we grimaced, paid and recieved our passes. the roads there were wide gravel and they turned to a narrower track as we headed north. 180 led us to serpentine lodge where we introduced the lodge keeper, alyer to some fine kentucky bourban. after some good conversation we rode to the shores if serpentine lake to set up camp. the day was dry and the riding good.

    day nine. woke up with a layer of ice. a very cold night to camp. we sat for breakfast at the lodge, got some detour information and set off. we made it through blackville and into miramichi at about six pm. dining in an irish pub. the trail today had many water crossings that had us guessing if we could continue.
