Yesterday morning I dropped my truck off at "Bradford's Towing in Lamoine, Maine to get the leaky axle seal replaced. I was provided with a service loaner vehicle so that I wouldn't be stranded all day. Since I was "stuck" another day in Bar Harbor I figured I'd do more sightseeing. Drove to the top of Cadillac Mountain (just a hill by Alberta standards) for a birds eye view of the whole area. For the first time in my life I picked up a hitch-hiker (well she was cute). She was on the cruise ship with her family and had hitched a ride (University students don't have much money) to the mountain, getting dropped off part way up to get a better view. She then started walking up the rest of the way when she realized it was further than she expected. So I picked her up. In the 2 minutes she was in the car (we were just around the corner from the top) I found out the above information plus that she was from Minnesota....or was that Mississippi? Then she was off
Talking about synchronicity, check out this website - http://jeremykroeker.com/index.php
Jeremy is on a journey from Germany through Iran on his motorcycle. He did another journey to Panama a few years back and then wrote a book about the journey. He left at the end of September. I met him at my motorcycle safety course (actually he was one of the instructors). His blog is amazing. I'm living in luxury compared to his accomodations most nights. Plus I understand the language...well at least until I get to the southern states...where I've been warned that their english isn't quite what I'm used to
So, after that detour to talk about synchronicity and my kids, back to yesterday. After walking around Bar Harbor for a while I headed back to my camper in case my truck was fixed sooner. Did some reading...about "Understanding where we are", "Entering the responsive universe" and "Overcoming the power struggle"
It's a beautiful evening. Sit outside reading and watch the sun set.
This morning I get a call at 8h30. Truck's ready to roll. The bill was a lot lower than I expected. Clifton at Bradford's Towing doesn't accept Visa, but will accept a personal cheque from a guy from the other end of a different country. What a guy! Great big thanks to Bradford's Towing. Stop in if you ever have car troubles when in Maine.
My drive today was through the most beautiful countryside during a brilliant warm fall day along the coast of Maine. Something I've noticed about Maine is that they have a lot of Antique Stores. They must bring the stuff in from across the country because I saw more Antiques than people.
Time to respond to some emails. Signing Off.
