July 20 Journal Entry – Travel to Jackman, Maine

We had a nice ride north to Jackman, Maine and are camped under a stand of pines.

Before I applied a thorough application of bug spray, I contributed some of my O Positive to 5 female mosquitos. I warned them that my blood had an anti-K factor in case they wanted to change their minds; none did.

We enjoyed a great dinner at the local pub where we learned where the best places to view Moose – both are on highways out of town. The directions included a strong warning that Moose eyes do not reflect light in the night (deer’s eyes do). So, we will not be driving the roads at night.

We took the opportunity to ask a couple locals at the pub about the sites-to-see in Jackman. There were some thoughtful pauses and then the comment “Some visitors take photos of the Catholic Church.” Our looks gave our disbelieving feelings away so they followed up with the comment “Well, it is large”. : )

We will visit the Chamber of Commerce to pick up some more ideas.
