How to get Here from There
Getting from one place you know to one you don't know is usually a very trying time
for those of us travelling across this fair continent of ours. Ask any driver who has
a co-pilot. So, this page
is designed to make finding CubFest Northeast 2004 just a tad bit easier.
Each of these maps below depict the routes needed to arrive in Sussex from the
four main border crossings from the US to Canada. These being in no particular
order, Calais Maine, Houlton Maine, Van Buren Maine and Madawaska Maine.
As soon as I can get complete exit details I will add a written description
for all routes.
For our friends from PEI and Nova Scotia, I shall have a map showing the basic
routes available shortly.
Houlton, Van Buren and Madawaska Maine
The following maps are meant more to inform our out of province friends
how to get to Moncton from Halifax and PEI. From Moncton it is clear in the Calais Maine
Map how to get to Sussex.

Now For the Really Important Directions
Once you arrive in the Sussex area, you will see signs similar to what
is depicted below. (This is just a preliminary - I stil need to do some work
on it.) These signs are meant to help guide you to Chown's Farm. For example,
you will see these signs around each exit, along highway 10 and at the foot
of Gibbon Mountain Road and they will be visible from whichever direction you
If you are travelling from St. John or Moncton, take Exit 193, follow the signs
to Route 10. Stay on Route 10 for 15 Kms or 9.5 miles. Turn left onto Gibbon
Mountain Road and drive for 1.4 Kms or 0.9 miles. The Chowns are the first farm
on Gibbon Mountain Road. Here is a quick tip - once you see the road for Snider
Mountain, you will be close, watch closely as Gibbon Mountain Road is easy to miss.
If you are travelling from Fredricton, take Exit 365, turn right a the stop sign.
Travel for 20 Kms or 12 miles, turn right onto Gibbon Mountain Road and drive
for 1.4 Kms or 0.9 miles. The Chowns are the first farm
on Gibbon Mountain Road.
Remember, to look for the Cub signs as you travel from either direction.
