    US to Moncton report.

    Started off in St Andrews with 59 degrees and foggy.

    We were still drunk off yesterday's sunshine so forgot to check the weather report.  See more later.

    2 deer eating grass at the Inn, 2 more in town, and another just outside of town on NB 127.

    The sun came out (well kinda, we could see a patch of blue sky) when we got on CN 1.

    Had a little miscommunication with the Harley GPS, so missed St George and the falls.

    Ended up getting off at the next exit which was also NB 175 and Lepreau Falls didn't disappoint.

    On to NB 790 and Dipper Harbour.  Couldn't see much due to fog.  Road was in fairly good shape.  I think this is the one they had sealed the cracks on.  However, they took the extra step of scrapping off the excess so you did get the slide effect.

    Back to CN 1.  My GPS asked me to take an exit that was temporarily closed.  I think there was a new ride stop on the east side of CN 1 and then would have taken us to Reversing Falls.  We had been there so proceeded to the next exit.

    We were familiar with this exit, but were somewhere between why are we going this way and what's Ed got up his sleeve.  Hillcrest Rd to NB 111 was a nice detour, although still fogged in.

    NB 825 was in horrible shape.  Definitely don't go if it's fogged in.  Turns out there is a gravel pit half way around and the trucks are continuous.  Then the rain started.  Remember that part about not checking the weather.

    Got quite wet on the way to the Sea Caves.  Just fog rain, it'll stop.  Nope!  Turns out one little cell nailed us.

    Nice fish & chips and chowder at The Caves Restaurant.  FYI, the water had reached the cave about 2 hours prior to high tide.

    After checking the weather map and donning the sauna suits we headed up the Fundy Trail Parkway.

    Stopped to pay the fee $28 CN (2 adults).  Asked the nice lady about the "Construction next 30 miles" sign.  They are not working today...apparently they don't do construction on rainy days and Fridays? :-)  She also mentioned chip & seal, but they had already swept it.  30km on some degree of chip & seal in the park and another 30km of fairly fresh chip & seal from the park to NB 114.  I didn't get a lot if rocks flying up, but certainly wasn't going to make any crazy turns.

    A little more construction on NB 114 towards Alma.  You do not have to pay the National Park fees if you are passing through.

    Took NB 114 from Alma to Moncton without any stops.

    How were the road conditions at the time you RECENTLY rode?
