    Ernie: Glad you got to meet Alyre. He is a National,...well,... at least a Provincial Treasure. I'm sure you ate too much and drank waaayyy too much at Serpentine Lodge. Hope things are going well.

    Finally found this thread...man, Keith, I hope you're healing up good. We need you healthy to put the fires out in the abandoned buildings!

    Looks like you're having a great time on some great roads. Gotta love the NB. Safe travels and keep the updates coming.

    day eleven. we left the city of moncton and headed south the the shore again. we had to detour one gravel road as it became a private drive but found a suitable detour. the roads were recently york raked which gave us a challenge with the loose dirt and fist sized boulders fighting our track. we skipped the hike to the eye of the needle but stopped at adairs lodge. we rode west and dodged lumber trucks on saddleback road down to the sea caves of st martin. once we fueled up we decided it was time to head home. we jumped on route 1 and rode to calais.

    The Atlantic. Nice guys! Looks like you are having fun even if a bit nippy. A couple of days of rain in front of you so it might be a bit of a slog getting back to Little Rhody. Ride safe.

    I think Frank and his crew are heading up into the Northern Wilderness right about now.

    Thanks for taking us along.:clap

    We had originally planned to take the minivans on our trip, but when I accidentally drove my basketball hoop instead, Keith suggested that we take the bikes. "Brilliant" we exclaimed and set off.
