Jay, You sound familiar as well. There are LOTS of campgrounds available all over Maine, but they charge a fortune. One that I checked out on the way to Stockton Springs, charges $15 a night for a patch of dirt, the use of a shower, and a water faucet at the site. A 40` Motorhome pays the same price. How widespread this gouging is, is unknown to me. We must have a bunch of Adventure Cyclists here in Maine who could offer a place to tent, a shower, even a guest room---anything to make the bike trip memorable. Since we last communicated, I have opened a bicycle repair facility--Heck, I`ll throw in a free tune up and lube along with a shower, tent site, guest room, and a washer and drier. It has to start somewhere and somehow catch on.
