Wow, It is beautiful there. Close enough to major cities, but in the country. That road work going on up there is taking sooo long. My husband is a civil engineer and insists that there is just bad project management, and not enough work going on while it is warm. I would hate to have to drive that route regularly.

Where is your family from and when were you at elan?

I was at Elan in 79- 80

I was born in Ireland so ...

Anyhow the highway is just about done. The availability of contractors is the issue  (I am assuming you are talking about  RT 26 )

All The best

Sounds like a great trip . I haven't been to Ireland since 87 so I am over due.

Went to the Basque region in Spain and southwestern France recently.

SyN youd of been interested in that . Mys sisters boyfriend family owns a vineyard. We toured that and stayed in beautiful, San Sebastien. The spanish are big beer drinkers but there was a white carbonated wine that they drank alot of.

My sister gave me all the finer points of the wines we were encountering. She travels to London regularly to complete some type of wine certification. It was all wasted on me . Give me a Guinness!

Robert, It is RT 26 that I was talking about, not the highway. Lack of contracters? That makes scense.
 You must be the same age as me, or a bit younger. I graduated high school in 79 and turned 43 last month.
What do you do for work up there? Are you a snow lover like me? I wish I lived near a ski area, I would have a part time job there or be in ths ski patrol just so I could ski everyday. It sure beats going to the gym.

It is so ironic, you work in heating and use a stove. I work in a supermarket and there is never any food on our house. I don't know how to shop for a week at a time.
We did stay at Sunday River in March this past winter. I loved it. Even though I injured every inch of my body. I tore ligaments in my thumb :cry2:  I had a rough year. Every winter we rent a ski on/off condo and stay on the mountian for a Sunday-Friday vacation. I think we are going to Tremblant this year. We usually go with another family, but I think we are on our own this time.[ This Message was edited by: Llahsram on 2004-10-06 06:38 ]

I burn oil in my own house also for heat. I put 2.5 cords thru the old stove a year.

I also sell wood boilers and am one of the few people that services wood fired central heating systems.( I don't work on wood stoves)

Temblant is that in Quebec? I love going to Canada I lived in Ottawa for a few years. Great town. I went to a Blues Festival up there a couple years recently. Lots of fun

2.5. thats it.  Good winter like the last 2 i run through 6 at least. @ floors on a 87 yr old colonial.  Wood stove in the kitchen  and in my office upstairs  Kids get base bord (electric) in their rooms, me n momma have a  baseboards to keep it at 65. This winter is gonna be good too.  maybe 7 chord, it does save me money though and its the best.  I cut it i split it i burn it. And I replant every time. :tup:

is pretty small 1300 sq ft . Very well insulated. It was built as an electric house in th late 70's so the heat loss on it is minor. Could almost heat it with a candle!!

After i finished with Elan I planted tree's for Scott Paper all thru the Maine North Woods. Seemed like a thousand a day, all on foot. Once in while I cruise the woodlands north of Moosehead lake and check out the trees we planted back then. They are already harvesting some of them . Hard to believe
