Started out sunny this morning and then some clouds moved in. Today is move day. We moved about 100 miles north and are on the Penobscot River near Medway, ME. Mt. Katahdin in Baxter State Park is the the Northern End of the Appalachian Trail. It was a tight fit to get into the pull-through sight and there is a bit of a slope. But we got in after unhooking and backing up, and we are pretty level.

|Lots of friendly bunnies here|
We found the restaurant in Millinocket. But before we ate we went to look for the Pelletiers shop. We found the Golden Road but turned around at the scales as I thought the shop was on a highway. So back to eat.
|Easy to spot the restaurant the trademark truck|

|Boy they were good|

It did get down into the 30s last night but the front heat pump kept us nice and cozy. This morning I ran the Aqua Hot and we are nice and toasty now. Lazy morning today and Bonnie has started a load of wash. We move to the condo tomorrow and it does not have a washer and dryer. We will go out for a drive later this afternoon. My update to IOS 8 went well no problems so I will explore that some today and do back ups. The sun is out nice and bright so that will help to heat us up also. Bonnie fed the rabbits some of the carrots she bought and they enjoyed them.
|They can eat them pretty fast|
|Finally a good view of the mountain|

We got back to the campground and noticed that many new rigs had arrived. There is an annual truck pull this weekend up toward Millinocket and many are here for that. Plus its the weekend.

The campground filled up more even after dark last night and one or two after we went to bed. It was not quite as chilly last night and tonight should be even warmer. We took our time this morning and slowly got ready to go. We packed our clothes before we put the back slides in as we would be moving into the Timeshare condo today. Bonnie went out to feed the bunnies but they have moved on to other campers and none were around.
Finally we were ready and pulled out at 12:30. We were only moving 39 miles north today so we decided not to which up the car and Bonnie just followed me. It was an easy drive and we stopped once at what was called a scenic view of Mt. Katahdin. Well it was very overcast and the mountain was hiding in the clouds.

We were at the condo by 1:30 and check in is supposed to be 4:00pm. But Grace checked and our unit was to be ready in 10 minutes. So we looked around the club house and asked Grace a lot of questions. They have a nice indoor pool and hot tub, game room, and computers to use. She said if we could not park the coach up at our condo we could leave it down in the parking lot.
Well it worked out that we had two parking spaces and so we backed the coach into one and we were even able to plug it in to keep the batteries charged.
|Good news we fit|

We both had a good nights sleep even though we were in a new bed. I was hoping for a sunny day but it is very overcast. Bonnie did not want to do anything today just rest up. It has started to rain so I guess that was a good idea.
I decided to ride into town and check out the Historical Society which was supposed to be open today. I did not have an address but the town is small and I found the Old Jail where there offices are.

I did check on the Bills sorry to see that they lost. We also were able to make a connection to our Dish Sling and saw the end of the NASCAR race, lots of cautions today.
Well it has stopped raining, we have had a nice relaxed day. I will get this posted and try to upload the rest of the pictures to my Facebook album. We have had a great week and enjoyed our travels.
Thanks For Checking In!
