In this unusual episode, the NEBO crew heads to Bangor, Maine, on the banks of the lower Penobscot River. From here they explore the beautiful river and upper Penobscot Bay, courtesy of local boater Ian Dickey. Traveling aboard Dickey’s Boston Whaler, co-hosts Tom Richardson and Parker Kelley check out Castine, Belfast, Bucksport and numerous sights along the Penobscot River.

Later, they get a tour of Fort Knox and take the elevator to the top of the Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory. Other stops along the way include some slot machine and blackjack fun at the Hollywood Casino Hotel, a beer-brewing lesson and lunch at the Sea Dog Brew Pub, and a chat with the folks who run Hamlin’s Marina in Hampden (where they also build Puffin dinghies).
