I was debating between this one and the one in New York.  I think I'll go to this one.  I think the one in NY is the first one or something.

Bull you going?I will be there on Friday.I want to avoid the crowd.But if it rains,than Sat will be it.I went up there last week and went the next exit up to the expo.This will keep me from waiting for the mile of cars in front of me to get in.Once I could get on to main street I went by the line and drove up the street and turned around and just about drove right in.
Take a day off from work or school and go.Don't say,I don't have time.It's worth it.

Its my best excuse to go to camp on the company, We have a place in Monson Maine, working on the wife to get away before the busy season, Will head into camp Thursday late and then off to Bangor for Friday morning, then have the weekend at camp or buming around the Moosehead region. Bangor is a little over an hour from Camp thru the willey wags- Rte 6/15 over thru Dover Foxcroft and then out thru Sangerville  Hermon on to Bangor Can't remember the rte #s at the moment, the memory knows the way !! gone to Bangor 3 or 4 time in the past 10 years for the Expo...

Looked into buying the campground on Monson Pond with the boat launch back in 84 but decided on larger acreage 1 mile up the road on the opposite side beyond Kelly's but before the A frame and Frost Heave Farm..... 70 Acres of hillside wooded. We built our Family Camp with Friend the spring of 84, love the area and can never find enough time to get there.. very few changes in Monson in the past 25 years...

Were you on the north side of the pond, Elliotsville road is the road from town to wilson stream, that passes monson pond, you most likely got the boat at the public launch at The Wildwood shores campground... There is still a Kronholm family on the Elliotsville road- oppisite side of the road from the campground...  Looking at the picture you would be up the pond on the leftside from the boat ramp. there is a small red camp on the shore line at the point of a small cove,if you look mor to thr rightside of your picture .. Kelly's own the feild that is on the hill to the west side of the lake between the road and the lake, does anything sound familiar!!

I will be taking the Hammond Street exit,I think it's 183.Says Hammond Street on the exit.Much easier than exit 182A.Two years ago I wasted time in traffic.Once I got on to Main St I went by everyone and turned around and came in the way I am going this year.I went up there this winter and tried it.Worked great.Hammond runs right into Main.Do a google on it.
I will have my FF hat on.Suspenders too.
Showers is the forcast.

I'm working in Lincoln, ME, for a few weeks, so I hope to grab a company truck and make it down there on Saturday, Sunday at the latest. Don't have my FF cap with me though. :(
