    I used to talk up the fries at Port Clinton circa 2000 but for my money, Pat, at the Doyle, makes the best fries on the Trail. Just my .02.

    From a "Mainer" point of view, Weary has been saying it best. Large tracts of undeveloped Maine lands are at risk. The alternative is for them to go to developers which, in my mind, is a one way...
