Hi, today was sleep-in day for Bob; I'm slowly getting behind in my sleep because Dusty wants out at 4:00 AM. and won't let me go back to sleep. Lee wanted to go to L L Bean Factory outlet store. I didn't like anything in there and we left empty handed. Next we made a stop at Wal-Mart for few things. I have always heard about TSC Tractor Supply Company, and we keep driving past one of them. I haven't ever been to one before. Well, I came out of there with three bags full of stuff; Funny thing is, I bought dog food and treats for Dusty there, at the Tractor Supply Company. They had Dusty's brand and style of food. Dusty eats Science Diet Chicken, Turkey, and Beef for seniors, ages 7 and older. They didn't have Turkey so he will have to do with Chicken and Beef mixed with Beef Stew from Wal-Mart. This saved me a trip to Petco or Petsmart. Tomorrow we are hitting the road again; We spent almost a week here and that's unusual for us. A BLT and a Angus hamburger was our lunch today. They had macaroni and cheese with lobster as one of their specials. I asked the waitress and she said it was just macaroni and cheese with a some little pieces of lobster mixed in. We still have lobster in our plans.

They are located in Wiscasset.

Coming south on Rt 1, it will be on your right just after crossing the Sheepscot River. It's a walk up window to order with a few picnic tables nearby. The street in front of it is pretty narrow, so plan on driving past and

look for a place to park

a few blocks away and walk back. I don't think you will be disappointed. The last time I was through there they were redoing the bridge, but I don't think it bypasses the town yet. That bridge has been a bottleneck as the tourist traffic has skyrocketed over the years.

As for lobster dinners, the best places are right on the water, where you order at the window then carry your tray to a picnic table on the docks.

Promising locations are Rockport, Boothbay Harbor and Bailey Island,

but most port towns sprout a shack or two and none are bad. Prices will vary widely. The 1.25 to 1.5 lb lobsters are often the sweetest. If you like the tail meat, they often offer a deal on a pair of lobsters that are each missing a claw, that way you get 2 tails and 2 claws. I've got a list of lobster shacks. If you want, pm me and I'll email a copy.
Hi, Thank You so much for this information; Out of all of the locations that you mentioned, we only found Red's. Lee stood in line for about one hour and ordered two Lobster Rolls. They were the best Lobsters that I have ever had. While waiting, Dusty was walking in circles until his tongue was hanging out. I told Lee to meet us at the trailer which was conveniently parked about a quarter mile up the street, in the dirt, next to train tracks.

(1.) Red's Eats.

(2.) Wisscasset, is the place.

(3.) Best Lobster Roll ever.

(4.) That little dot at the end of the street is my truck and trailer.

8-25-2015.

Hi, besides stopping for lobster, we crossed a neat and different bridge. We also stayed at a Wal-Mart last night. I asked, and they said it was OK, but to park way over there. We were the only RV there, making me think this might not be a good place to stay. By the end of the night, there were two pick-ups, two vans, and one mini motorhome there. So I guess it will be alright.

The Wal-mart was in Falmouth, Maine and since it was cool outside we could stay without air conditioning. We did a lot of driving around, but didn't see much, so we kept going. Hey, let's go to Boston and Salem. We located a campground in Salem, so we thought, and drove down some tiny streets. Where the camp ground was supposed to be there was a small mobile home park and it was a dead end. Good thing that I didn't try to drive in there. No place to turn around so we had no choice but to follow the road. At the end of the road was a State campground with zero spaces left, but at least we could turn around in there. We ended up in a forested campground in Littleton, Massachusetts. We got a nice space, but it was hard to get into. On the last try, I was inches away from a post, to get my truck past a tree on the other side of the road. Again, no damage, but it was very close.

I didn't bother to trim my perpetually shaggy beard to go into Canada and the border guy had a beard too. Last night I trimmed by beard to go back to the US with a device called "scissors"—no batteries and you don't need 120 v. either! No real problems except waiting and waiting—about an hour all told. Beards are very popular now, so I think you just must look dangerous.

Hi, Gene; I still have my beard, of course, but I bought some electric clippers and trimmed it down to size. Lee said that I cut too much off, but it will grow back soon. Driving, not towing, in Boston is crazy. Nobody hit me, I just plow in like in L. A. While in Maine, I was talking to a girl in the laundry room and she said people from Massachusetts are the worst drivers and they call them Ma$$holes. One thing different that we noticed was that they like to make somewhat dangerous left turns right in front of you. The very first one was while I was towing and in the left lane. I was just getting going and this guy in a mini-van cut right in front of me and drove on the wrong side of the street for quite a ways to make his left turn. [over lapping intersection] Since then we encountered three more Ma$$holes. They do this often because we never hit, but they are close. Dusty went to the local Vet yesterday because the mosquitos got him and he has ear problems again. Got more meds for his little kit we carry for him.

Hi, driving in Massachusetts is challenging. In town it's like any big city; I relate to L.A. In the country it's like many other country roads. Where the difference is, you never know what lane to be in. At many intersections there are two lanes. You have to figure out which one is straight, left only, or right only. Trying to go straight and one time it's in the middle, the next one is on the right, and the next two might be on the left. There is very little warning until you get close to the signal and then have to barge in to the lane that you need. I signal and turn in the direction that I need to go and they either let me in or I force my way in.

Not in my household. If I grew a beard, I would be without any of the benefits of marriage.

My experience during periods where shaving was not available (such as survival and POW training) was that I spent too much time scratching my beard. However, I did have a mustache during the 70s when it was mandatory. As soon as social regulations allowed. I got rid of it because I was annoyed by smelling my lunch all afternoon.

Ken

Hi, Ken; Beards are itchy and bothersome until you actually grow one out. Each time you start, and never finish growing a beard, they are a pain. What I call the perpetual three day growth, is not a beard.

I couldn't stand a full beard either.

This is much better.

Bob, wait until you get to NYC, especially Manhattan. Driving is a sport and high intensity. Last time I was there, 2008, I turned it back on for a week and had fun, but it was tiring by then I was glad to get out of town.
