- Leave Charlottetown at 7:45 a.m. by Acadian bus, arriving in Halifax at 1:00 p.m. with a transfer in Amherst ($53)
- Leave Halifax at 4:30 p.m. by shuttle bus, arriving Yarmouth at 8:00 p.m ($55).
- Overnight and part of the next day in Yarmouth.
- Leave Yarmouth by high-speed ferry at 4:00 p.m. the next day, arriving Portland, Maine at 8:30 p.m. ($89).
- Overnight in Portland.
- Leave Portland by train at 5:50 a.m. arriving Boston at 8:25 a.m. ($23).
- Leave Boston by bus at 10:00 a.m. arriving Keene, NH at 3:05 p.m. ($41).
In Keene I’d still be 30 minutes from Yankee, but I could probably hitch a ride with a Yankee staffer into the office. If I left Monday morning, I’d arrive in Keene on Wednesday afternoon, a journey of about 55 hours and a cost of $261.
An alternate route would be to take the bus from Charlottetown to Bangor (11 hours, $75), then a bus from Bangor to Keene (via Boston, 11 hours, $39), a route that would require only one overnight and would cost only $114. It would, of course, involve spending 22 hours on various buses, which might just kill me.
The fastest route to Yankee that does involve air travel and car rental, by comparison, would involve a Delta flight to Boston (1:45, $203) and a 90 minute drive to Dublin (car rental about $60/day). Best-case scenario the total trip, leaving time for airport transfers etc., would be 4 and a half hours from door to door.
