Cuing up the second trip

I have a chance to make a very quick trip up to Cambridge, Maine tomorrow, so that’s what I’m going to do.  Compared with Cambridge, NY, Cambridge, ME is a small place indeed.  With a population of only 462, it ranks among the lowest population of the Cambridges.  Here are some numbers for you.  (Thanks, again, to Wikipedia.)  I don’t have much of an itinerary this time, but with one trip behind me, I trust that I’ll figure it out.
