Maritime Provinces 2007 - Main Page 

Updated: 11/30/08

We signed up for a two week tour with HitchHiker of America International. The tour rendezvous location was Trenton, Maine - just north of Bay Harbor. We left Michigan on June 20. This gave us plenty of time to stop along the way, spend time in Bar Harbor and still arrive at the rendezvous location for the start of the  tour on June 29. After a couple days in Maine, we crossed the border into Canada for the main part of the tour.
