How not to visit MAINE: Portland, Bar Harbor, and not enough time – Traveling Robert

Lessons learned about how not to visit a large state like Maine. First we didn’t allocate nearly enough time. Second, it was foggy when we went to see the first sunrise in the USA. Third, campground screwed up our reservation. At that point I gave up and decided to go back some other time. Lobster breakfast in Bar Harbor was great.

  4. Lloyd Bonafide on December 4, 2019 at 3:23 am

    33:20 – Good for you in not getting messed over by that campground in Maine. "You need to move?"
    RIGHT, I need to MOVE on down the road, give me my money back and see you never again.

  5. Dave Metz on December 4, 2019 at 3:24 am

    Robert, you stated towards the end of the video that Maine wasn’t so great. Maybe not to you, but thanks to your expertise in video making, I thought it WAS great. Thanks once again

  6. Wee camp on December 4, 2019 at 3:26 am

    Soon me and my wife will be traveling around seeing all we can of GODS BEAUTIFUL CREATION. LORD WILLING. I LOVE MY WIFE SO MUCH!!!
    MY SWEET STACI, SO HOT, SO FINE, SO BEAUTIFUL!!!
    I remember the first time we met. It was january 11th 1974 and we went
    Out on our first date and we had a great time. I remember when I took
    Her home that night we we’re making out in my car sitting in her drive
    Way. It was so sweet, so hot, and so fine. We didn’t want to stop, we
    We would of went all night If her dad wasn’t flipping on and off the
    Porch light letting her know to come In. We was fogging up the window’s
    of the car and burning up. We fell In LOVE that night, not sex, LOVE.
    I remember latter sitting on her front porch one day talking about us.
    I remember telling her It was ME or her so called friends, No more
    DRUG’S, POT, DRINKING, OR FOOLING AROUND WITH OTHER’S IT WAS US OR
    NOTHING. WE CHOSE US. I then told her I would marry her one day and we
    Would spend the rest of OUR life with each other and take care of
    Each other as we grow old together, WE SAID YES. She was 15 teen and I
    Was 16 teen at that time, We we’re so In love with each other and just
    Wanted to spend every second of time together that we could. I joined
    The marines In 1975 I was 17 teen when I went to boot camp. HER DAD
    TALKED ME INTO IT, he said WHEN I got back from Paris Island I could
    Marry staci. Needless to say, HE LIED. They told us they would sign
    For us but they didn’t. They wanted her to finish school first. I begged
    and pleated with them that I’d see that she would If they would let us
    get married, but they wouldn’t. Both our heart’s was broken. So We went
    together for three year’s, And two day’s after staci birthday We got
    Married. At that time I still don’t think they we’re to happy about It.
    But latter on I became the son they never had. I’t was april 4th 1977
    And we’ve been together ever since. Now 44 year’s latter she Is still
    SO HOT, SO FINE, AND SO BEAUTIFUL She is my wife, my friend, my lover,
    My ONLY TRUE LOVE, the mother of my son and daughter, she is my breath,
    My everything. Without her I don’t exist PERIOD!!! I love her more than
    The sky is big, More than word’s can say. I still write her love note’s
    Every morning, And I still can’t get enough of her, And I NEVER WILL !!!
    She is so precious to me and I THANK GOD WITH ALL MY HEART FOR HER AND
    ALL WE DO FOR EACH OTHER EVERYDAY. WE HAVE NEVER GROWN TIRED OF EACH
    OTHER, AND WE DO EVERYTHING TOGETHER. WHAT WE DO, WHAT WE HAVE, AND
    WHAT WE GET, IS NOT MINE OR HER’S, IT’S OUR’S PERIOD AND THAT’S HOW WE
    HAVE BEEN SINCE THE DAY WE MET. We camp, We fish, We ride our motorcycle,
    We ride our trike, We yard sale, We shop, We go everywhere together.
    You see we have what so MANY don’t have, REAL TRUE LOVE. WE WAKE UP
    TOGETHER, WE PRAY TOGETHER, And WE READ GODS WORD TOGETHER EVERY MORNING
    BEFORE WE GO ANYWHERE PERIOD. Ever since we ask JESUS CHRIST into our
    HEART"S OUR LOVE HAS ONLY GROWN STRONGER. We did that In the mid 80’s
    And It’s been the very best thing we ‘ve ever DONE PERIOD. There Is NO
    OTHER WOMAN IN THIS WORLD FOR ME EVER PERIOD !!! THERE IS NOT ANOTHER
    LIKE MY STACI; WHO NEED’S THE REST WHEN YOU HAVE THE BEST ? AND I KNOW
    I HAVE THE VERY BEST, BECAUSE I STILL HAVE MY SO HOT, MY SO FINE, MY SO
    BEAUTIFUL STACI, THANK YOU STACI FOR BEING MY ONLY TRUE LOVE FOREVER.
    I FEEL WE ARE THE LAST OF OUR BREED. YOUR MAN ONLY DENNIS 333
    YOU AND ME KID ALWAYS FEBRUARY 21st 2018 TRUE LOVE FOREVER

  12. Karen Harvey on December 4, 2019 at 3:33 am

    I love the lighthouse and the shore.

  13. David Reese on December 4, 2019 at 3:34 am

    Fun RV cooking. Found some Spanish smoked paprika, great spice will use from now on.

  14. Andrew Larson on December 4, 2019 at 3:35 am

    I wonder if 6 or 7 bags of rocks or salt or something in the back of the pickup would leveled ya out?

  15. Nils Hedstrom on December 4, 2019 at 3:35 am

    Great video! Would be cool with more visits and films in Maine!:)

  16. Ted Warg on December 4, 2019 at 3:36 am

    Hey Robert, next time your in Maine I highly recommend you checking out Ben and Bill’s chocolate Emporium in bar harbor. And get yourself some lobster ice-cream. I know that sounds weird but it’s pretty good. 😎🤙👌👍

  17. Tom Murphy on December 4, 2019 at 3:36 am

    I was born in 68, lived in NY til 79, Anyway my parents had a cabin in Maine. We went every summer until late 70’s when they got rid of it. Many good memories as a young child of walking WAY out in the ocean when the tide was out and having to run back because it would come in fast. Will go back one day. Also that F250 is to much to pull that camper

  18. Mr C on December 4, 2019 at 3:37 am

    OMG Robert! I ate at Lobster Shack in 2014 when I went around the country in my Subaru. I was thinking when you said you were looking for lobster that you were going there. You should have gotten the whole lobster, it is fantastic. That beach is all huge petrified logs, did you notice that?

  19. M on December 4, 2019 at 3:38 am

    Robert loved this video on Maine,I feel as if I was there thru your journey I see now how beautiful this state is love the light house thanks for your excellent commentary u should be a host on the travel channel 😍🥳⭐️👍

  20. djsi38t on December 4, 2019 at 3:38 am

    It’s kind of funny to me when people go over the big bridge into maine they say piss-ka-ta-qua river.Just so you know robert in maine it’s pronounced piss-kat-a-qua river.Right their is the home of the portsmouth naval base and where a lot of ww2 submarines were made and based.Really sorry you missed so much of maine.You saw the seacoast,but the mountains are very nice and you need to see them too.A place called Evans notch north of fryeburg maine inside the white mountain national forest is the place to go.
    On a clear day you can see whales in the ocean from the top of cadillac mountain.

  21. Victor Manz on December 4, 2019 at 3:39 am

    All brake lights working!

  22. Wes McElravy on December 4, 2019 at 3:40 am

    Highly recommend Boothbay and Shore Hills Campground. And some point you need to get that Vermont Sticker. My wife I an love Stowe Vermont and there are a ton of breweries with great IPA’s

  23. DANIEL Sz on December 4, 2019 at 3:40 am

    34:12 Is it a ghost?

  26. Liam Minecraft Building Channel on December 4, 2019 at 3:48 am

    What’s your favorite state to travel through?

  27. Turner & Co. on December 4, 2019 at 3:48 am

    I remember when I discovered the "avoid tolls" option in Google maps. Life changing. 😁

  28. MechanicalAnimal on December 4, 2019 at 3:48 am

    If ever a voice was made for narration!

  29. George Byrne on December 4, 2019 at 3:49 am

    Thanks Robert for the Maine video. My wife many years ago (1970’s) used to work at a lobster house that showed up in your video! Testa’s Lobster House! It really brought back memories for her. Needless to say we’re hooked now and will be watching for your next visit to Maine and Bar Harbor! Thanks again!

  30. Brian Clunie on December 4, 2019 at 3:50 am

    I’m from Maine; you should have stayed at Sebago Lake State Park, it’s a very clean camp area! I just Subbed

  31. Duc Luu on December 4, 2019 at 3:51 am

    Very nice video!!

  32. djsi38t on December 4, 2019 at 3:54 am

    Those boats were lobster boats.To be able to lay traps around the coast of acadia is top notch lobster fishing,and those who can are very lucky.

  33. SKPjoe Coursegold on December 4, 2019 at 3:55 am

    love the drone shots. i was in Maine mid Sept for 14 days and plan on going back in the future. loved Arcadia.

  34. Robert Bates on December 4, 2019 at 3:56 am

    I hope you checked for garrapatas while in ME.

  35. Maddogg Matson on December 4, 2019 at 3:56 am

    Hey Robert, what kind of drone are you using? It’s a great addition to your videos.

  36. Dennis Rivenburg on December 4, 2019 at 3:57 am

    You should check out Maine’s southern coast with the huge beaches and Perkins cove, follow rt1 up to Kennebunkport and then old orchard beach.

  37. Reinaldo Silva Silva on December 4, 2019 at 3:57 am

    What a Beautiful state Maine !! Thank you for this video Robert !!

  38. Ivan UsestheKnife on December 4, 2019 at 3:58 am

    Who’s the camera man during the cooking show?

  39. Colleen Gleason on December 4, 2019 at 4:03 am

    If you truly want to see Maine, avoid Portland, Bar Harbor and every expensive tourist trap.

  40. Ronnie N2PX Perry on December 4, 2019 at 4:03 am

  44. Alva Shoemaker on December 4, 2019 at 4:12 am

    Thanks for that info re: avoiding Bar Harbor, etc; however, i thought Maine was PRETTY; and, SO GREEN (those forests are very thick and green; WOW; it’s amazing—NICE state!! 😃🤓👣

  47. Lloyd Bonafide on December 4, 2019 at 4:15 am

    Uhhh, nope too long…….

  48. djsi38t on December 4, 2019 at 4:16 am

    Two places you missed in acadia.Thunder hole which you drove right by and the famous round rocks beach where all the stones are like pool balls!Oh yeah and the beach with the sand made of seashells!

  49. Mary Olson on December 4, 2019 at 4:20 am
