Oct 7, 2017 - Kings Landing

We left Dieppe around 1:00 pm on Thursday, October 5 and another terrific day. The sun was shining and we travelled along the TCH, #2 West, to a kalidescope of color. The variety of red, orange, and yellow leaves reminded us of our previous visit to the Maritimes. Pat and Emery, just like Henry and Diane, are snowbird friends from Mesa and they are our hosts in Fredericton. Once again we are being treated royally. They have an area near their home that we are parked and power is keeping our fridge going. Yesterday Emery was our chauffeur...

Oct 3, 2017 - Fredericton

One of the first things I needed to do this morning was visit the local place the lady at the campground told me would winterise the motorhome for $40. I spoke to the people there & had it all organised for them to do it next week & almost as an afterthought, confirmed the price of $40. That’s when I was told I’d been misinformed, their price was $125 plus they’d charge $50 to drive 1km down the road to do it here. That changed everything. I came back to the campground & the lady was very apologetic but that’s what she pays a friend to do...

Oct 2, 2017 - Fredericton

A really exciting day cleaning the stove, defrosting & cleaning the fridge & generally sorting out everything I can think of. After several conversations with different people I’ve decided to store the motorhome here at the RV Park. The manager has been incredibly friendly, helpful & supportive. She has her own trailer here so I trust her judgement. She’ll organise the winterising of the water system after I leave so I can use it up to Wednesday morning & all I have to do is park it where she tells me then get a taxi to the airport. I also...

Oct 1, 2017 - St Andrews to Fredericton

Well, I’m safely in Fredericton so all I need to do is sort the motorhome out, make it cosy for the winter, then get on a plane to Toronto on Wednesday. I’m having second thoughts about the place I’d chosen to store it so need to make some phone calls tomorrow. It seems that RV World, the place I’d selected, is way more expensive than anywhere else & when I went past there on my way into Fredericton I wasn’t very impressed with the location or the security around the place. They want to charge me $700 to winterise & store it until next May...

Aug 30, 2017 - Day 1 Canada

Today’s the day we head into Canada. Left Wells Maine and headed north on the toll road. We stopped and filled the truck up in Houlton Maine because gas is cheaper in the US. We also found a post office so I could mail a couple of items. Crossing the border was easy and off we went towards our adventure. We stayed at Woolstook Campground outside Fredericton New Brunswick. It was the more expensive than we wanted but it was in Canadian Funds. We bought Canadian funds for $.77 on the dollar back in May. We drove around the area and had dinner...

Sep 29, 2015 - Change of plans

Today was a good news bad news kind of day. Hmmm...which first?? Good news! Freddie got an oil change!!!! Finally, it was very overdue. After so many attempts, and getting told by almost every Ford dealer in Atlantic Canada that they were booked two weeks in advance. We took another chance and tried again and bingo we found a well run dealership in Charlottetown and got in!! Bad news.... We knew Wednesday was going to be rainy, but it was upgraded very substantially to a severe storm. With up to 100 mm of rain falling and the severe winds...

Sep 27, 2015 - Fredericton, New Brunswick

Days 96 – 99 (September 23rd - 26th) Fredericton, New Brunswick The move from Cornwall, PEI to Fredericton, NB was uneventful—good weather, moderate traffic and controlled access roads most of the way. We arrived at our RV Park early-afternoon and were surprised by the location of our site: it was in a forested area more than a mile from the park office. We setup, then drove about 15 miles into Fredericton to do some shopping, fuel the truck and verify mass times. Unfortunately, the church we planned to attend was located on a road that...

Aug 25, 2015 - Fredericton, New Brunswick

The drive from Digby to the campground, Scotia Pines, was uneventful. The weather was overcast and humid with temperatures in upper 70’s and low 80’s. The road was in good condition and the traffic was light. Scotia Pines is large campground located about 0.5 miles from the Trans-Canada Highway 102 that connects Truro, Nova Scotia with Halifax, Nova Scotia. The campground is a clean and neat campground but it is very crowded. The sites are closely packed and the campers tend to be young with a slew of kids running about everywhere. That...

2015 New York Trip

Jul 29, 2015 - Fredericton, New Brunswick

It is Wednesday, July 29 and tomorrow we leave Fredericton for Pictou, Nova Scotia and the Harbourlight RV Park. We have reservations at the park and unlike other parks the owner, Cameron Mac Donald, is very, very flexible with reservations. I told him several months ago that Marge and I were coming to Nova Scotia again this year but I had no specific date at the time. As we got closer and closer I have kept him informed and once we were in Fredericton I was able to set a specific date for our arrival. If anyone reading this journal ever...
