I didn't stop except for a few pics and gas. The pickings are few on that side of the island. A bias against the French!!! Mon Dieu! :wink2:
Man, I wouldn't do that, that sounds like an endurance event. The Cabot, and Nova Scotia, is NOT a fast ride. Yes, it can be done, but if you want to --- and I'm not talking about "smelling" the roses, but knowing the roses actually exist---it can be done. You'd be spending all the time in the saddle and not much, if any time to explore. I had a week and I was doing stuff every day. I would think, in order for it not to be a blur, an extra day on every leg, ie 3 more days, would make a big difference, and allow you to explore backroads instead of always pushing.Nice Pics, Were are hoping to ride to Nova Scotia this year don't know if we will be able to do it or not its 1500 miles each way for us with our time frame it will be 3 days @500 miles and 4 days Nova Scotia then 3day 500 mile home going to be kinda tough on us but were hopfull.
I have a similar feeling when I'm thanked. I made the choice to join the USAF Reserves to help pay for college and to at least be in the service (all the men in my family have done so, until one cousin...). I was in Basic right after Desert Storm, when the Soviet Union basically crumbled (that led to an interesting briefing). Then I out-processed right before my unit got the call up to Bosnia. Aside from work my once a month duty and the yearly two week trip (sometimes somewhere fun - Spangdahlem one year. Patrick AB the next - got to work on the C130s that fly into hurricanes. WC-130s, maybe?). So, here I am, purely a structural maintenance guy (tin bender!), only a weekender, and not even qualifying for veteran status, getting thanked for my service. Rings very hollow compared to others I know who were in full time, deployed, and were in combat.So, when someone "thanks, me for my service" my usual response is, "I'm sure you felt a lot safer from 1975-1977 when I was in, keeping the world safer from Moncrief (known as More-Grief) Army Hospital at Ft Jackson, SC.
right.... Rings very hollow compared to others I know who were in full time, deployed, and were in combat.
Barney and Betty Hill were an American couple who claimed they were abducted by extraterrestrials in a rural portion of New Hampshire from September 19 to September 20, 1961. It was the first widely publicized report of an alien abduction in the United States.
Sometimes you think how beautiful that is, but sometimes you learn a painful though possibly a cosmically inconsequential truth, namely, "yeah...that's not me."What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason,
how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable,
in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god!
the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals
