    Littlepeter found me on the road and has dragged me home again. Always good to see him. A great place to wait for the boat in the comforts of home.

    You do have a good way of being "found"

    Rolled off the boat and a spirited ride to Steady Brook got me dumped there by Rob so I rode solo to home. In at 1630 with a big hug from my girl and a yard full of grass to mow. I was afraid my Peonies would bloom while I was away but the ants are just eating the wax covering off now. And speaking of flowers, thanks to Dresda I saw the most beautiful flowering trees in Liverpool yesterday. She gave me the whole scoop on them and hoopefully will post a pic.
    While on the TCH near the Baie Verte junction I got the high beam flash from a rider coming the other way with the brightest set of auxiliary lights I had ever seen. It was only afterwords while looking for moose or police that I thought/realized it might have been CBerry on his lighthouse quest.

    My many thanks to all the members who made this trip as grand as could be. The ones we rode with and the ones who took us in and gave us the run of the house/campground as needed.

    Flowers! Finally Mike has figured out how to get a photo from an IPhone to RTR! Years ago the mayor of Liverpool had these trees brought in from Japan. He had an idea that when they matured the town could hold a festival. These trees are all over area, very beautiful! Link to flickr photo:

    You will also see a photo of the Red Suspenders Club gathering in the parking lot in Liverpool!

    I can't believe that the camera worked for such an important event! Is the curse broken?

    Not according to all the I-phones, laptops, GPSs and I-pads that stopped working when I went near them. I only took a couple of pics because I did not want to push my luck.

    It is uncanny to watch it happen before your eyes........

    I went to a bank machine yesterday to get some cash. It said welcome when I rolled up and by the time I got my gloves off to take my card out....OUT OF ORDER.

    Good news. Although I lost my Ipod on this trip, I found out that my pics synchronized to the icloud automatically when we got access to Brad's Wi-Fi the night we stayed at his place in New Brunswick. So I only lost a few photos. I'll post more later.

    Some video of the ride up Mount Washington.
    Had to split the video up because it took 24 minutes to get to the top.







    Pretty slow compared to Travas Pastrana's run the day before. 5 minutes 44 seconds.

    Some more videos taken during the trip.

    Deer Island Ferry I think.



    A covered bridge in New Brunswick on a fine day.



    Getting the blood flowing.



    Lots more, I just have to pull them off the GoPro.
