Ahh, me too I gotta heat up some of that Shepherds pie lol. After I get this Benz running on veg one hopefully. I'd like to get another 98 or 99 and slap on a better turbo like a HX35. I've seen a W210 Diesel with an HX35, they're nasty!

Jake, wish I had something to just heat up! But, how about both eating?

Oh dear! You got an itch to scratch...

Here is another rough sketch to have reviewed:

Day One (Sunday):
Fairport, New York to Nicolet, QC, Canada
7 hours based on Google

Day Two (Monday):
Nicolet, QC, Canada to Matane, QC, Canada
5 hours and thirty minutes ''

Day Three (Tuesday):
Matane, QC, Canada to Jacquet River, Belledune, NB, Canada
8 hours and thirty minutes ''

Day Four (Wednesday):
Jacquet River, Belledune, NB, Canada to Baddeck, with a stop in Summerside Prince Edward Island
8 hours and thirty minutes ''

Day Five (Thursday):
Baddeck Cabot Trail
2 hours ''
Baddeck to Fundy Bay
5 hours and thirty minutes ''
If I was to stay a day in Fundy Bay, I would have to skip Sunday at the event. That make Fundy Bay on Friday and no Church Sunday.

Day Six (Friday)
Fundy Bay

Day Seven (Saturday)
Fundy Bay to Lancaster, New Hampshire, via dropping south from Saint Stephan to the coast and through Bangor, Maine
8 hours and thirty minutes ''

Here is where I really need help.

Day Eight (Sunday)
Lancaster, New Hampshire to Boston, via St. Johnsbury, Vermont.
3 hours and 15 minutes ''



Wait a minute! I am forgetting my primary schooling! I bet I could just walk into Vermont and accomplish the same thing: say I have been there. Such a small state and so same appearance as New Hampshire which it broke off from.
2 hours and 45 minutes ''

Then I would spend the rest of the day in Boston since I have a dinner invitation?

I also have an invitation and desire to go to Rhode Island. '' only an hour, so mean two to go back for dinner and find a place to sleep. Apparently there is several auto accessible campgrounds within close proximity!

So, could look like this:
Lawrence, New Hampshire to U.S.S. Constitution
U.S.S. Constitution to Rhode Island
Rhode Island to Boston

Day Nine (Monday)
Boston down to New Canaan.
2 hours and 45 minutes ''

New Canaan to Castle Garden
1 hour ''

Castle Garden to Philly
2 hours ''

Have lunch with Jack and Phil and see Independence Hall.

Independence hall to a Delaware campground
2 hours ''

Day 10 (Tuesday)
Now getting really uncharted.

Simpler=Better gave me an invitation to Baltimore.
Delaware to Baltimore
2 hours ''

There is several campgrounds along the way though West Virginia, so that makes it easier than the coast.

As I am saying, work in progress for you all to have a look at. So far, I wouldn't have gotten this far without you alls help, so thank you so very much!

Does this mean you want to drive the entire Cabot Trail?

If so, Google is pulling your leg. I have done it twice and I think you can plan on at least four hours. It's been more than a decade since the last time, but I haven't forgotten how sore my behind was, and with me that's at least a four-hour run.

My dad's family are from the area.

Well Zacharias, Google isn't always right, thus why I am trying to get you alls help, for which I am grateful for. So thank you so very much!

I saw it is in the top five for Nova Scotia, so think so. Or, is there a way to trim it down? How about the other Canadian parts?

If walking take less time, then I do that.

Well, traffic into Boston is nonexistent on Sunday morning, so you should be able to get in fine. Your best bet for parking would probably be Charles Street, which is shown on the first map linked to below. If there isn't on-street parking, you can park in the garage there (entrance and exit on the right); Park Street sells discount parking tickets ($6) to attendees, so that shouldn't kill you. Parking on Charles, you can walk to the church through the Boston Common, which is actually quite a nice walk.

We attend the 8:30 service, but that may make for an early get-up for you. You could also get there at 10 and join us for the church breakfast before the 11, which at least I would attend with you. Or, you could just attend the 11.

In terms of seeing the Constitution, I have never been there, so some combination of us may join you for that. I'm embarrassed to admit that I don't even know where it is (!). Driving in Boston is a pain, but you thankfully won't have to wade through too too much of it.

I've attached maps and/or provided descriptions of the routes I would take from place to place (the first one starts on 93 in Boston right before you get off). There is a Wal-Mart about ten minutes from us in Tewksbury -- Wal-Mart #2222.

Map #1 -- As is blatantly obvious, 93 is really the only way to come down from Lancaster, and it is a nice road too. This shows where you would go to park when you get into Boston. "B" to "C" shows how to circle around if you miss it the first time . i WOULD JUST HEAD TO cHARLES sT. THE WAY gOOGLE mAPS HAS YOU GO. tHEY'VE GOT IT DOWN NICELY. < Sorry for the caps -- my cat turned it on and I was too lazy to turn it off once I first saw it.

Map #2 -- The best way to RI would be to take 93 South (the Southeast Expressway) to 95. If you're meeting up at John's, he's RIGHT over the border on 95.

Map #3 -- Coming back up from RI, I would take 95 all the way to Rt. 3 N where it turns into a real highway this is shown on the map. I'm PMing you our home address as well as the address of a Wal-Mart nearby.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something... oh well.

Jooseppi, thank you so very much!

Man! I like the way this is turning out!
I do not mind walking, and think someone else be glad for it. Though her time on campus has caused her to "forget" some of her training...

That is nice there is options, for then it isn't like a big stress to try and hurry to make a time. Usually on trips I do sunrise to sunset, which is normally how I also sleep, but not since July...

If you all were up to it, Google says about a 45 minute walk from the Commons to the U.S.S. Constitution. I can beleive you haven't been there, as the obvious is usually what the locals don't go to. I was a teenager before I went to the real mission in Sandy Eggo!

Good to know I93 will not be a horrible drive. I would figure on it being fairly quiet being a Sunday in a Christian area.

Cat is reminding me Ember will have to stay in the wagen, as his/her domain!

Is John JB3? That is the one I have the invitation from. Not sure what is happening with that.

I saw there was a Walmart, but figure better to over plan than under plan especially when it comes to lodging!

Adriel, I think I've spoken to you on the phone before... did you call me at one point inquiring after a Coverlay dash cap? I remember talking to a guy with a 'TD who was talking about his VW project that was rusty despite being a CA car because of the salt air .

BTW, what color is the VW?

Nah, it's just people sleeping in. I believe that NE is the least Christian region in the country...

we have spoken, but seems I have lost your number...

It wasn't a dash cover, as mine has no major cracks. I know there was something, but know I also asked about the caps covering the dash screws.

Yep, my Squareback was brought up since we started talking about rust. I am an odd fellow in that folks say I am chatty. Probably because of my impulsively...

Marina Blau. It is a light blue with hints of a light green when fresh. I rattle canned the wheel wells, thus how I know. The green has faded out. Some day will have her repainted as badly showing primer.If I did have it painted, I have the primer tinted a very light green to make it hopefully stay in the blue longer. I am even tempted to do it myself! I mean, the cost of a gun is coming down, and a compressor isn't too bad considering how handy.

Hmmm, interesting you would say that. Guess something to keep in mind when on the road. I believe the Almighty takes care of us so long as we do what we can. I am looking forward to seeing what He does on this trip as sometimes it gets interesting.

No worries -- I totally lost your number too . I remember a squareback that we saw in LA in either Eagle Rock or Pasadena (probably Eagle Rock) about four years ago because it was on our way to somewhere. Nice-looking car -- I think this one was an off-white and looked like it had been there forever .

[chuckle] Guess Oma is right, what isn't needed is lost.

Nice condition or did you like the design?

Mine is a '71, so has the boat styling of the 1970's, which I find more attractive than the Beetle like sloped hood. But, not much choice, as was a family friend's and grew up with them both. That is why I can't sell her. Us A.S.D. folks see people similar to objects so easy attach to objects according what my Aunt was saying a couple days ago.

Happens to a lot of folks... I asked for the name of the Church, said the Almighty might make the trip interesting, then found the Church! A lot of folks call that luck, but what ever. Different strokes for different folks.
