Had not known the prices had gone up so much. We were paying $7 per pound for soft shells in 2019 fresh off the boat. Oh well.
Re being poor peoples' food. My understanding they used to be fed to prisoners because they were cheap. Of course no melted butter and such for them.

When I was in Maine back in 1970s Lobsta was about $5 a lbs. Lobsta used to be poor peoples food back in the day until the noveau riche decided it was good and drove the prices up. Actually, Maine fisheries have limited the lobsta catch and that is why prices have gone up so Maine lobstermen can make a decent living.

Will be in Maine this weekend, but no radio gear. Flying in to
Bangor, visiting Hartland.
People we are visiting said that lobster prices are outrageous.
15.99 a pound for lobsters they could get for 6.00 a pound last

Enjoy Maine and eat some extra lobsters for us. We were up there in18 and 19, skipped 20, and bought a house in Ohio for this year. So no trip up there for us at present. Maybe next year.

It is August. I am operating portable. I am on an expedition. But this is not my APE yet. Hope you all will continue to talk to me as I work my way through Maine up to West Quoddy Head Lighthouse. I've operated 2 days in August from 3 places and worked 5 stations so far. I plan to get on the air daily in the afternoon or early evening after my travels for the day are done. Hope to work every day up to the APE dates. Then I have to boogey home after the 23rd when I get my 366.
I'm looking for APE's and 366er's. Get on the air and I'll talk to you.
