Okay end of yesterday. I called a hotel and got a room but had to find a ride. The ambulance driver was there on a call and offered to pick me up after he finished his shift in a few minutes.
DAY 2 MORNING
There is no taxi service so I tried to see if the police would do a courtesy escort and that failed. The desk clerk called a veteran service and within minutes I had someone on the way. He gave me a ride to the coast guard station.
Saw all my gear in the garage at the coast guard station. Went inside did the report and then they gave me the number of a hotel down the road. I was informed that a reporter from the Portland Press Herald wanted to interview me over the phone.
I started to empty the kayak to find the front and back dry(?) wells were half full of water. So it was unpack and assess the damages. Get the water out. Now I know why it was so damn heavy.
Second reporter shows up from the Quoddy Tides to interview and take pictures.
I have gear everywhere drying out.
It is raining so I am limited in my travels but it is 3 in the afternoon and I will think about dinner soon. There is a microwave in my room and I have plenty of freeze dried food and water.
I will publish day 3 tomorrow it should be short.
