Yesterday morning I departed Augusta headed north on 201. The route follows the Old Canada Rd, a route of trade and historical importance between the St. Lawrence River Valley and Gulf of Maine. Staying close to the Kennebec River for the first 80 miles or so, the beautiful 70/sunny day made for a peaceful day in the saddle and plenty of time to walk and explore the roadside informational kiosks. Notable historical moments include the last river logging drive in the US (1976) and Benedict Arnold's 10mi portage enroute to Quebec City.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 59'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
