There is the HUGE Indian statue or whatever you want to call it off I-95 heading South towards Portland, I forget the town though. Also, I think the Acadia National Park area would be AWESOME to ride. Really anything on the coast should be good. Have fun and post lots of pictures when you get back.

No problem... I like that stuff too. Check out "Weird New England" for local legends and ghosts. It's a good way too plan a road trip, you can get it at any Barnes and Nobles. Also "Where are they buried", has cemetaries where famous people are buried.

I like the Moosehead Lake area. Middle of nowhere there's the largest lake east of the Mississippi.

http://www.mooseheadlake.org

You could ride up rt 201 to Jackman to rt 15 to Rockwood and Greenville which are two towns on the lake. In Greenville you can take a ride on the steamboat Katahdin (built in 1914) http://www.katahdincruises.com

Then follow rt 15 back down to the highway rt 95 just south of Bangor. You can then go to Bangor and then hit rt 1 and do the coast.

Wow get outta my head.... Im planning the same trip but not sure of the dates yet . Around that time though. I was going to ask the same questions. Not much of a spelunker though any more.
I was under the impression that the EASTERN MOST PART OF THE UNITED STATES is in Maine.

Im also looking for places to stay by camping.

Leaving from PA and traveling with 1 or 2 others.

If you can stand the traffic, take U.S. Rt 1 and check out the Boothbay Harbor area, (Southport Island and Ocean Point are nice rides) also be sure to go to Camden and ride up to the top of Mt. Battie. You can camp at the base in the state park.
Don't eat too much lobster and as they say in Maine, "You can't get there from here" (Opps, wrong saying) "Have a wicked good time"
P.S. the Rangley lake area is awesome. Fantastic lake with great camping and canoeing.
