After a family sendoff party last night and this morning, we biked to Winslow Park for our departure.
Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Ken were also in Freeport and came by to bid us farewell and good luck.
So far, we’re really happy with the maps that we purchased from Adventure Cycling Association.
Chris was so excited to eat some of the one pound sausage he hauled to our campsite. After climbing 3,850 feet over 52 miles along our route (plus 8 to get to the start) today, we’re very conscious of the weight on our bikes!
For dinner, we enjoyed some orzo and chili that we made with our new Whisperlite Universal camp stove.
The accomodations for our first night were at Four Seasons Camping in Naples, Maine, next to beautiful Long Lake. as far as campgrounds go, this one was pretty luxurious: water and electric on our site, wifi and 5min showers for only a quarter!
