basement life

the road trip from the north country of new york to down east maine is...10 plus hours, anyway.
when staying with my nephew i sleep in the basement. if it was MY basement you would consider it torture to make anyone stay more than a brief minute there. but this one is organized and tidy, with "stations", laundry, wood carving, movie, outdoor gear all organized.

the northeast kingdom is fascinating. every time i drive through i think i'll just wing it. i always get lost, almost quebec this time. 
this looks like home, only they would be hardwood not softwood--this is heading to a paper mill. new hampshire.
spavin cure. just in case. you never know.
car photos are particularly bad. really. but it's kind of fun to drive and take pictures at the same time. 
and my first view of the atlantic. bar harbor. sanctuary. basement. and a good sleep.
