Newfoundland/Labrador trip up next
With the lady of the manor, we are back on the road and headed this time to Newfoundland and its almost forgotten neighbor Labrador. It will be our third visit to the Canadian Maritimes but our first to Newfoundland/Labrador.
Followers of this blog know we can’t stay home and would never consider traveling in a car. The RV lifestyle has us hooked by the toe. Although we are not full-timers (we spend about six months a year on and off the road), we have been RVing for nine years, wearing out one big motorhome and downsizing to the Winnebago. The smaller motorhome gives us the opportunity to drive more of the back roads and less of the interstates. We are staying in more state and national parks and seeing more of small town America and enjoying every minute and mile.
Cool weather of the north country will be a welcomed change from the constant summer heat and humidity in Florida which we seem to enjoy less with age. Temps in north Florida were in the low 90’s and aggravated by the almost daily afternoon thunder-boomers, leaving behind a few hours of steaming high humidity until sundown thankfully arrives and cools things a bit.
We are driving a two year old Winnebago Aspect Class C motorhome, which displays 30,000 miles of dependable road work, including last year’s 12,000 mile five month trip to Alaska. Our trips usually range in the 2,000 to 3,000 mile range.
There will be a few camping spots in route to Newfoundland which we will tell you about. Otherwise, we will be in North Sydney, Nova Scotia by July 20 to catch the ferry to Newfoundland. With a little luck, there will be pictures and stories of icebergs, whales, puffins, lighthouses and some memorable happenings from the roads we travel.
