We have taken to running Shermans furnace to stay warm while driving. I’m thinking we have a blocked heater core or something, but we’re going to live with it considering we only have one more day of driving. We’ll worry about fixing it sometime over the summer.
Funny mural on the back of this trailer!
Lots of snow still in eastern Maine!
Kind of a strange entry into Canada. The Canadian border guard (who had a thick British accent) didn’t even ask for our passports or any form of ID. He asked for our licence plate number, then asked how much alcohol and goods purchased we had. We were way over the allowed amount in booze, but they were all opened bottles. He told us that we’re not allowed to “mix and match” the amounts, but they’ll let it slide this time. Welcome to Canada…home of high taxes, cold weather, and expensive beer. Oh yeah...and expensive gas!
Filled up with gas again in Calais, Maine, right at the Canadian border. We have been paying between $3.35 and $3.52 per gallon($0.88 and $0.93 per litre) since crossing into the U.S., but paid $3.65 in Calais. Still, this will seem cheap compared to the $1.23 per litre ($4.68 per gallon) it is in New Brunswick.
We took a side road down to the summer resort town of St. Andrews, New Brunswick. Of course it’s pretty dead at this time of year, and we found a great, scenic overnight spot overlooking the Bay of Fundy. It will be a quiet night, with the exception of running our furnace because it’s supposed to get down to -6C (21F) tonight.

We have a long drive tomorrow, and we lost an hour because we are now on Atlantic time. We’re going to try to make it to our destination, but it will be a long day.
