If originating out of Bangor, ME; may I suggest going Maine Route 9 to the border town of Calais , then travel NB 1, then Trans-Canada 2 to Nova Scotia. It took us only 7 hours & 340 miles from Confederation Bridge (not far from Nova Scotia)to Bangor. We did the Houlton route on the way there and this way coming back - it shaved alot of time & miles off the traveling.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
