As some of you know, we’d been considering a run to New Brunswick/Nova Scotia this year. We HAD been planning on running through Quebec. We decided instead to stay Stateside due to the added miles from our Western NY home. We decided to run through New England, taking the Scenic route, though Keene NH… Rt […]
