Next Destination Maine

OK time for a real trip.  I am not counting the initial pickup since we only went one-way trailer. For this trip we are a little more prepared and have some additional equipment with us.

Where to? Acadia National Park in Maine. While on the trip to NJ to pickup the trailer I made reservation for 4 nights at the Narrows Too Campground in Trenton ME. It is across the causeway from Acadia NP but it is right on the water and had openings most importantly.

We packed and hitched the trailer after work (Thursday) and set out for a nice long weekend.

Here is nice picture of the truck and trailer at a rest area. It is really strange how sometimes the trailer looks bigger and sometimes it looks smaller.

I think it looks big in this picture.

We got in on the late side after the four-plus hour drive. Luckily we still had enough time to get settled before it got dark.

We didn't splurge for a site on the water but we were only 3 sites away from the water (for 1/2 the price).

The site was actually one of the larger ones which is really helpful for trailer backing up novices! It was also very level the trailer was parked and camp was setup in no time.

Here is one of the pieces new equipment! A Weber Smokey Joe Silver Charcoal Grill, it was the first thing we setup as we were hungry for Dinner.

It is just about the right size. I own a full-size Weber but that would be too much to haul along with us. We probably need to find a propane grill option as well to make sure we can cook outdoors even when there are fire restrictions.

Our site was missing a fire ring, but we later stole one from an empty site.

Airstream Log:  This trip 248 miles and 1 nights .  Lifetime 774 miles and 4 nights
