flying trip to Nova Scotia

no stories posted yet so here goes... t'was the 1st of Aug 1967 long week-end. I had just finished working a Thurs night after school 4-12 shift at Frank Neurndoff's Shell on Lawrence Ave ( next door to DeVry). My shift supervisor was driving home to Liverpool NS to see his Mom and Sister and offered to take Gord & I home for the long-weekend for a three way split on the gas. Looked good in our eye, stretched out in the back seat of that big Delta 88 Olds, roaring east on the 401 to Cornwall border crossing. Scotties chips and pop were order of the day.. had to stay awake and keep our driver Frank Saunderland awake. Seems we were always just a bit over the posted limit and the pot holes on NY state highway to the Burlington VT ferry didnt seem to matter. After a great crossing on Lake Champlaine we headed for #2 east via state of Maine... I remember Gord saying .. man this is the life..and then out of no-where whoop whoop whoop and  funny blue lights in the rear-view mirror. We were in Rumford Maine, Frank pulled over, state troopers came up and put guns to our heads....  it was 3:30am and Frank was trying to explain to the state trooper... he had to catch the Saint John to Digby ferry at 8am to get these two homesick students home for a week-end visit with their parents . Didn't seem to matter..we were carted off to jail in Mexico, ME and charged with speeding (50mph in a 35 mph zone and trying to bribe an officer. We were slated to appear in court Monday morning to answer charges and fines.  Finally Frank convinced the jail guard to let us call a Judge to come over to the jailhouse to assess our plea. The fine ..US$300 ... but Gord and I had no money .. heck we were poor students. ..our FIRST STUDENT LOAN .. Frank bailed us out, ..and we were escorted thru Mexico/Rumford on our journey to Saint John. Rough crossing to Digby..we both got sick. Dropped Gord off at the Digby terminal and Frank and I proceeded across hwy#8 to Bridgewater.  The above photo is Gord and I at the Halifax Air Canada Terminal just prior to boarding a Vanguard for the five hour return flight to Toronto on Monday night ( one way ticket was $85.00)
