All Done


tl;dr: After biking through the White Mountains I am again in the Boston Sprawl. I'm done.

After performing the single flush that was allowed by the stored-up water in the cabin, I hit the road before dawn just to be on the safe side. The rain had finally stopped, and it was looking to be a nice day.

I spent the morning bicycling south through the White Mountains via Evans Notch. It was pleasant.

In Stow, I came across the Stow Corner Store. I wanted hot food, so I passed by. Then I smelled hot food and returned. I'm glad I did. Their homemade breakfast pizza was awesome. I spent two hours in the there talking to the owners and locals. A lot of interesting (and famous) people live around Kezar Lake.

From Stow on southward the traffic just increased. I now know that the locals refer to this part of Maine as Boston Sprawl. Though the weather was nice, the forecast called for days of misery to come. The thought of biking through more urban areas in a cold rain wasn't appealing. So for that and other reasons I decided I was done with yet another bicycle trip. I peddled back into Portland, rented a car, and started driving west.

So, for the eight of you who read this blog, I'll write again in the future. I have other trips in mind. Specifically, I still haven't seen a moose, and that is starting to bug me.

Evans Notch

no moose

deer and elk but no moose?
