Some questions about Fort Kent have been asked. I will sent to the LIST 
and to the newsletter detailed information later. In the meantime, know 
that our costs at the UMFK campus are reasonable, that this area hosts 
the International Can-Am sled dog races, the International Biathlon 
competitions, winter special olympics, and groups like ours (the latest 
being the annual convention of the Business and Professional Women's 

Transportation information later. For now, you do not have to fly into 
Bangor and make the four hour drive north to Fort Kent. You can fly 
into Presque Isle. That airport will be open for business as their 
contract extends through 2010. We can rent buses and individual rental 
cars. If driving, it depends on from where you are coming. If you are 
coming from the midwest, say Chicago, it is closer to enter Canada and 
drive across Canada (their highway is less crowded and in most sections 
in better condition than in the US).
So, enjoy the sites, and I'll be back online next Monday at the 
latest--I hope. Joan

In the meantime, check out these web sites:

and, for the fun of it: Check out the maps. The pinkish stuff is New 
Brunswick on the right side and Quebec on the left. Follow the river 
(St. John River) along 161 until you see Dickey. To the left of that is 
the word group St. John River--my property starts at the O in St. John 
and goes straight south up the hill to the blue sled dog trail.  Now 
that's on the edge of the wilderness and you won't be going there 
unless you all want to. Some neighbors have offered to arrange a picnic 
for us on the St. John. UMFK's wilderness camp is only a few miles 
away. A Maine Guide (whose usual clientele is hunters from south--NYC 
included) is writing up plans for some activities for us.
