IF you visit Acadia on a regular basis, as we have over the last few years, this is a good deal.

The drawback being that you have to buy it in person in Bar Harbor, Maine. If you know somebody up there — that would work.

I am GOOD, thank you. We have, between us, two LIFETIME passes for ALL the National Parks!

Free Entrance To All U.S. National Parks, Including ‘Acadia’, This Veterans Day Weekend, November 11 – 12, 2017.

It is late in the season, but it should still be quite nice in Acadia — it ALWAYS is, by definition. I just checked the weather for YOU; it will be in the low 40s, BUT no rain! Yes, that will be a bit chilly but pleasant if you are bundled up.

Just a heads up.

I know that many think it is a SPORT to visit Acadia without paying the Entrance Fee. And I understand. But, the Parks can do with the money especially since they are under attack by ‘Agent Orange‘. This way you don’t have to avoid paying the entrance fee. You can explore for FREE — morally and legally. {Smile}

Not much details as to how, or where, the accident took place. Sounds like he rear-ended a car, BUT was the car parked on the Loop Road (which is not unusual) or did it brake suddenly. Either way he was lucky and he knows it. Shame.

Interesting that folks are still out on the Park ‘this late’. I am sure it is lovely. I wish I could go up there. Miss it.

So, another non-fatal accident.

Tomorrow, Saturday, September 30, 2017, Is “National Public Lands Day” (NPLD) — A Day To Volunteer.

Some of you may have heard, over the ‘ether’, that National Parks, e.g., Acadia, and some State Parks, are having FREE entrance on Saturday, September 30, 2017. That is indeed TRUE. That is because it is “National Public Lands Day” (NPLD) – 2017. So, if you want to go to a Park for FREE, tomorrow is the day. [Not a BIG deal for us since as a family we have two (2) lifetime (4-person) passes to the National Parks!]

Though most only get to hear the FREE part, the real essence of NPLD is as a day of public volunteering on PUBLIC LAND. So, if you can. In New Hampshire there are various local initiatives THOUGH I can’t find any by our NH “Parks & Recreation” (for 2017).

72-Year Old New Yorker Drives His Car Into ‘Bass Harbor’ Outside Of ‘Acadia National Park’, September 26, 2017.

Click to ENLARGE. Though many of you know “Bass Harbor” in terms of its iconic lighthouse, the Harbor itself is set back — and in this case the accident was on the ‘Bernard’ side. Created by Anura Guruge.


The New York Couple had been to dinner at “Thurston’s” at Bernard.

We eat at “Thurston’s” too and had done so on September 3, 2017
— just 3-weeks earlier.

Pictures of “Thurston’s” and Bernard Harbor.


No fatalities and not that serious. Driving into a harbor … You would expect that from a New York driver.

He was looking for Route 102. The roads around Bernard are narrow and if there was a fog, at night, it could be tricky.
