2015-05-23 - ANP - Prelude - Drive to Bar Harbor
Saturday morning I said goodbye to my parents and brother, who were driving up together to Cornell for his graduation, that I will miss. An hour later Gina, whom I met on the "Bike the US for MS: Northern Tier" Facebook group, came to pick me up.
It took us a total of twelve hours to drive up to Bar Harbor on the border of Acadia National Park, including all our stops. We stopped at beautiful Portland, Maine along the way.
Gina's stories and advice from the 3800-mile Trans Am ride last year from Blacksburg, Virginia to San Francisco, California helped me get over my fears. The closer we got to Bar Harbor, where I spent a week last summer, the more I felt at home.
