You Can't Get Theyah

 A few weekends ago we visited Baxter State Park, up the road a bit.  Before we left we inquired as to directions, and surprisingly Google obeyed local customs and told us:
this reminded me of a certain set of Maine directions of yore, which I learned from Bert and I.  Essentially Google was telling me: "You can't get theyah from here."
I figure it was because the route from Orono to Baxter (which Google calls 64 Blasom Dr, Millinocket, ME, 04462-2190), takes you, well, through Millinocket, and along the same road to Millinocket that you would have to take if you were coming from East Vassalboro.
