Maine

 

It's hard to believe that I haven't been in Maine for 10 years. I used to go every year throughout the 90's.

I'm leaving after work on Tuesday and hope to make it to Portland by midnight. I should be down for the CM horseback riding in MA on Saturday.

Stay tuned for pictures.

All packed and ready
