We took advantage of no one being around at dawn to run the Wraith and the Summit on Sand Beach on the eastern reach of Acadia National Park. Such beaches are a rare feature in Downeast Maine. We both burned through a full pack screaming around on the wet-packed sand ... what a blast.

Pretty grateful to have a wife who runs a public library in her professional life and then enjoys RC trucks and crawlers for R&R. She's also my observer pilot when we fly airplanes and quads, and my crew chief when we race Formula V in SCCA Club Racing. She is distinctly not a tomgirl - more like a princess. What a gal.

Our Wraith and Summit gave us a great morning of exploration on the pink granite ledges and outcrops at Acadia National Park. It was a blast working them around the terrain and the jack pine and lowbush blueberry patches. We tread lightly as some of the lichen patches here are very old and very fragile and are always to be avoided. Crawling is also a great RC alternative now that the National Park Service has issued a temporary ban on flying in the parks while they work on rulemaking.
