Over the River

A couple weekends ago my husband and I packed up the truck, loaded the Jeep on the trailer and we were headed. Headed where you may ask, well Up Naaath (for those of you unfamiliar with that term, we went Up North.)

We went to a place in Maine where some people do not have indoor plumbing, or electricity, but boy oh boy do they have some good cell phone service.

Ever since I found out that the American Logger's opened up a restaurant in Millinocket I have wanted to go. If you don't know what American Logger's is/are, then that means you probably don't know what the Deadliest Catch, Ax Men, or Swamp Loggers is either, and to be honest that disappoints me just a little. American Logger's is a Reality Show on the Discovery Channel that highlights a Maine family and their logging business. It's quite entertaining and I think you should tune in if the opportunity presents itself.

Once we arrived at the place we were staying, we unloaded the Jeep and hit the high road to Millinocket.

I kid you not, this is the road we took.

Luckily, we brought tha Jeep!!

 While over the river and through the woods, we saw some nice scenery.

Once we hit the tar road, we found this amazing store that is open 8 days a week!!
Talk about a convenience!

Finally we arrived at our destination!

I must say that I was a little surprised at the location of the establishement. For some reason I envisioned the building in the middle of a log yard, well it's not, it's right off a Main Street.

The inside is really nice, they have chainsaws all over the place as well as old logging pictures covering the walls. I wish I would have taken a picture; but the bathrooms are labeled Lumber Jack and Lumber Jill - I love that idea and am pondering replicating them and then hanging them over the his and hers sinks in my bathroom... (thoughts?)

The food was very good, the beer was very cold, and they were super creative when naming the food in their menu so this place gets a B+ in my food book. If it would have been smack dap in the middle of a log yard and if there would have been a pine candle burning somewhere, it would have received an A+!!

Happy Friday!!
