This was probably the most fun I’ve had since Steve and I went ATVing up in the logging trails at the end of our road. It’s been something I’ve wanted to do – to drive my truck up there as well. To see how she would handle and to see if there would be any […]
This is, by far, my most popular category for those who love to travel and find really cool places to visit. Laura and I have lived in the northeast United States for our entire lives, with the exception of a six month stint in Florida. Throughout our lives, we've visited so many incredible locales. From New York City, to the coast of Connecticut to the mountains of New Hampshire, the posts contained in this travel and destinations category will hopefully inspire you to spend time in a few different places that we've gone. I've tried my best to capture beautiful and very realistic photographs to help persuade you to get out and enjoy these wonderful locations.
I’ve had the last few pictures from the short road trip Steve brought me on sitting in a folder for a while. I figured I really should post them before they get too old. All right – the final destination of our trip was a place called Coos Canyon. It’s located on Rt.17, North of […]
Moving on along our motorcycle trip (read about our first stop here), we rode into Rangeley, Maine and stopped for a break. We decided to get some lunch because, unfortunately, I hadn’t eaten anything yet. Steve suggested a pub across the street from where we parked the bikes. The pub was called Sarge’s and I […]
Clearwater Lake is a sight to behold. It’s located in Industry, Maine and it’s right out of a storybook. When you come around the bend traveling north on Route 43, you won’t miss the water with the mountains behind it. Nothing says western Maine like Clearwater. With a mean depth of 60 feet and a max depth of 129 feet, this lake can surely handle boats of many sizes. That’s a very good thing because powerboats, jetskis, and sailboats are all allowed on the lake. So is canoeing and kayaking. The perimeter of this lake is seven miles, which makes it just large enough, but not too large. From what I’ve seen though the years, it’s not busy either. Yes, people stop to swim and fish during the summer and ice fish during the winter, but parking is never a problem. Please click through to take a look at some of the posts I’ve written about this lake. You can also take a look at some of the photos I’ve taken as well.
Maine has got some unique bridges. I know of three so far. One is Wire Bridge, one is South of us and one is North of us. I don’t know the names of those two, but as we visit them and get to know them, I’ll be sure to gather some information on them and […]
We were told about these falls by a fellow named Don who lives up the road. His description made it seem like the falls were right around the bend. In reality, they’re about three miles away from our house. Nevertheless, they are wonderful and quite the hidden attraction around these parts. Some people call these […]
A while ago, Laura read something online to the likes of, “You can live in Maine your entire life and you won’t come close to seeing everything.” I’m probably screwing that up, but I’m sure you get the idea. Basically, the gist of it is that Maine’s got a lot to offer. If you are […]
This was a difficult Sunday for many sap houses across the state. It’s been extraordinarily cold in northern New England and the longer than normal Winter season is taking its toll on maple syrup producers from Ohio to Maine. I just read a few comments on a maple syrup forum and a lot of people […]
Laura and I had an action packed thriller of a day today. We did all sorts of things from picking up a ton of pellets to checking out some baby ducks and chickens to looking at really cool huge machinery to cruising around and taking pictures of a wood splitting operation. What fun. Good thing […]
Laura and I went into Madison once again yesterday to run a few errands. The vet, the food store, gas and the building supply store. In the supply store, I had to grab some parts for an upcoming hot water heater project. Some more Sharkbite and copper elbows and a Sharkbite ball valve. I used […]
