Jul 11, 2016 - Cars that roll Uphill?? Hoping for Rocks

We stopped briefly in Fredericton for some shopping, and got to the Casino NB to register, if you don't they will tow. There are so many musical acts that have been there and ones that are coming. We had a decent dinner at the buffet for $10 Magnetic hill - has always been a destination when here in Moncton. Does your car really roll uphill?................ We went there to experience this phenomena. Ye s, they do charge you a couple of bucks, but well worth the experience. It took us about 45 mins to drive from the Casino to Hopewell...

Jun 26, 2016 - Oh Canada!

After some time in LLL, lupines, lakes, and lobsters, we are now in Canada. Loved the roads in New Brunswick after the rough state roads in Maine. Loved Maine and all of the beautiful scenery. Sunrise over Bar Harbor from Cadillac Mountain was awesome even considering the 0300 wake up call. Today we enjoyed a late wake(I.e. sleeping in) then our usual Sunday AM at Starbucks, then the Ribfest in downtown Moncton, and a trip to shores of Fundy Bay at Hopewell Rocks. The Tide swings about 35 ft and we were there at high tide. Tomorrow we go at...

Aug 26, 2015 - Moncton

Today was a small day, driving from Edmundston to Moncton, about a four hour drive along the Trans Canada Hwy. We are hoping to visit friend David, from our university days. Glenna found the nicest campground in the area, Campers City a park very close to Moncton. It’s a gated park, with quite a few transient sites. We have a pull-through with 30 amp electrical/sewer/water. The site is pretty, well let’s say plain Jane, but we have clear view of the sky so I am looking forward to another Blue Jay game. We had a delicious meal and wonderful...

Jun 8, 2015 - Nova Scotia

June 7th: This morning was a church visit for many. In most of the villages we've stayed in there have been almost every denomination available for worship. After church we decided to make our first stop Digby, known as the "Scallop" capitol of the world. Digby is also home to the Mi'kmaq (sounds like Micmac) Indians since the beginning of time. Most of us had a scallop lunch at a local waterfront restaurant, enjoying a great view of the wharf and the scallop boats. Visited a few shops on main street, still not quite the tourist season, but...

Jun 5, 2015 - Fundy National Park

June 4th: Busy day, several of the group went to see the Tidal Bore in better weather than we did. Several did errands and Ken, Karen, Linda, Gerry and I decided to go to the Fundy National Park. Ken and Karen took one route while we took the opposite road. Big mistake for us, the road through the park was being taken up and repaired. A very bumpy dusty ride. Pretty scenery, but unless you were into hiking, not much to see. The road ended at Alma, a quaint fishing village whose main catch is lobster. Between us we had a lobster roll, a full...

May 22, 2015 - Moncton, New Brunswick - May 2015

When traveling to the Maritimes you have to go through Moncton, New Brunswick. It is a large, modern city. The Riverfront passes by the downtown area. This is the place to hike or bike. Besides 60 km (37 miles) of trails, the Riverfront includes a large sports complex and nice parks. There are many activities and parks for family fun in the summer time. We stayed at the north end of town at the Stonehurst Golf and Trailer Park. We had the best site in the park. The only one with a cement pad. Since there is still some snow on the ground,...

Sep 24, 2013 - Moncton to Fundy National Park, NB

September 24 Our lobster dinner last night was fabulous!! We purchased one pound of tails and claws which really was about four 1.5 pound very tender lobsters (cost $20). ( Market is very near Rotary park) The tails and claws were whole with very few random pieces. Would like to see how they shell in a commercial way so perfectly! Hope we can find another stop with a similar product. The shop very well could ship to the states and will look into on line. Bob was really annoyed with this camp. They not only charged $5 for WiFi but also, $.25...

Sep 23, 2013 - Dalhousie to Moncton, NB

September 23 Last night we had Pizza Delight for dinner while we watched the Steelers lose! BW served a good hot breakfast (much better than in the US). The time in NB is one hour later than the US EDT. In Newfoundland it is 1.5 hours later! Go figure. We are headed down the Acadian Coastal Drive which is along the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Hwy 134. We drove fewer than 40 kilometers to realize that the coastal route might be nice for swimming in spots but as far as scenery was concerned, not attractive. We saw several old, large energy and saw...

Aug 18, 2013 - Sussex to Moncton

The day started cool (8C), calm, and sunny. We were treated to 500m of climbing in the first 20 km with a km or two steady at 10%. Since we were fresh and the weather was perfect, the climbing was not a chore. I'm very happy with the gearing on the bike - it is ideal for this terrain. The added weight of the new fork doesn't seem to be a problem. I stopped for a photo of the sign marking the crossing of the highest point of the mountain range we were crossing at 336 meters. Just ahead of me, Dave stopped to change a leaking tire. He was...

Yesterday morning we packed up and left Fredeicton for Moncton, a distance of about 100 miles. Ross took the lead and he and Marge got on the road and Elden and Cherie were right behind. We had traveled less than a mile and Elden radioed he had a "Check Engine" light. We both pull to the side of the road to determine what should we do. The engine was not providing much power but all the vital instrument readings such as oil pressure, temprature were normal. Elden made a few calls and a company named Bay View said to bring the motorhome...

Jul 15, 2013 - Moncton, New Brunswick

July 15, 2013, Moncton, New Brunswick We started out for a short drive to Moncton, NB but when I pulled out of the campground my check engine light came on and I had very little power; NOW WHAT! I pulled off to the side of the road and Ross and Marge turned around. We call three truck service centers before finding one that could look at it right away. We limped the 5 miles to the Bayview Trucks and Equipment. They plugged in the diagnostic computer and said it was a low fuel pressure. Most likely caused by a clogged fuel filter; there are...

Oct 11, 2012 - Day 88 - Moncton, NB

We decided that this would be a lazy, get vehicle work done, and minor chores done day. We took the Trailblazer to Mr Lube,purchased our US Medical Insurance from Cdn Snowbirds Medipac Plan, purchased tape to repair tear in the slide awning, fixed awning, measured height of bus to get accurate reading. This has become an issue as many of the roads we plan to travel in the US have low bridges and interchanges. We know what Don told us the height was, and we know we increased that when we installed the satellite dish dome but what is it now?...
