3 is fine, 3A probably nicer if not slower. Kingston, which is right next to Plymouth.
Depending on the time of day, or not, :eek: the fastest way around Boston is to not go around or to go around Boston. :rotf: 6 one, 1/2 dozen the other is the way I see it.

Didn't quite make it to Bangor.

Had dinner in Portland, ME at the famous floating rest. Demillio's.

Moday headed west into New Hampshire. Got to N. Conway. Drove the Mt. Washingon Auto road to the top of the Mtn. Only scrapped the bottom a few times going up. Unfortunately, it was foggy and drizzling on/off at the top.
