Day 765: Baking and Biking at Merrymeeting Field

Continued bad weather here at Merrymeeting Field is preventing PPG flights.  We managed to have a productive day of homeschooling today, and Trish did some more baking:

I went for a great ride on the rural roads of Maine:

As sometimes happens, the weather turned perfect just in time for Shabbos.  Hopefully this good weather will hold and I can fly on Sunday:

Good Shabbos from Merrymeeting Field in Bowdoinham, Maine!

Day 751: Truro to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Today we left the fairgrounds in Truro and drove south to Dartmouth, where we did laundry.  We had to park about five minutes walk from the Laundromat and carry our laundry back, which was not so much fun.  Trish and the kids did homeschool in the RV while I did the laundry.  After lunch, Trish made Shabbos dinner and I went for a bike ride.  The route took me by some pretty lakes:

After I returned, we moved the RV to the Walmart in Dartmouth for Shabbos.  This will be our first Shabbos in a Walmart parking lot:

Day 747: Biking in Moncton

It’s another cloudy day here at the Moncton Casino, but at least it’s cooler today:

After homeschool, Trish and the kids went shopping, and I went for a bike ride.  I almost immediately met up with Pablo, a local cyclist, and he proceeded to take me for a 35 mile tour of the area with 2200 feet of climbing:

It was a great ride.  Nice meeting you Pablo!

Tomorrow we will hit the road, bound for Nova Scotia.

Day 737: Another Flight at Merrymeeting Field

This morning the weather was just perfect.  I took off a bit earlier today.

The grass was slick with dew, so I slipped and fell at the very end of the landing:

For the sake of completeness, here’s the video from yesterday’s and today’s flights:

We drove north to Bangor, where we will spending Shabbos with Congregation Beth Abraham.  We managed to squeeze our RV into the driveway of our hosts, Bruce and Naomi.  I went for an afternoon ride and ended up at this lake:
