Sounds like another ambitious undertaking!
Even with lots of help, I would think this would be
a logistically difficult considering all the people who
descend into Maine in fall for foliage tours .. Land
barges, bow to stern, in the high season.
A thousand mile ramble, might be out at least three
days, I would think .. When was the last time you
have run 300 + miles in a day, in a vintage, MG (B),
Triumph, or the like?... I think some post 1975 flat
beds might be advisable ! ,,, ;-)
