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...

Jul 16, 2013 - Moncton, New Brunswick

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?...

Sep 3, 2012 - Magnetic Hill, NB

We hit the road, while eating our lunch/supper of potatoes (how classic, PEI potatoes... comfort food) and headed for Moncton, hoping to visit Magnetic Hill, one of Matt's requests. We arrived in Moncton, found the address listed on the GPS for Magnetic Hill Park, but saw *nothing* indicating where the actual 'hill' was. After driving back and forth on Mountain Road, seeing other Magnetic Hill attractions (mini-golf, etc) we gave up, turned towards a busier street looking for coffee, and spotted it! Luckily for us, the park was closed for...

Aug 27, 2012 - Day 43 - Back to Moncton

We left Green Gables area to head back to Moncton to get the hydraulics checked. We called my former co-worker, Pauline MacKay, and found out that she was also on her way to Summerside and arranged to meet her at the Walmart parking lot. When we arrived she was knocking on the door of another large brown motorhome with Alberta plates, but no one was there; and then we pulled in. What are the chances? We had a good short visit with Pauline and her mom and then were on our way again. We again crossed on the Confederation Bridge and paid the...

Aug 25, 2012 - Hopewell Rocks & Cape Enrage

Day 13, Saturday, August 25, 2012, Hopewell Rocks & Cape Enrage (8 photos) Made a day trip to Hopewell Rocks with a stop at Cape Enrage, so named by early French explorers because of torturous tidal currents. Hopewell is noted for its “Flowerpot Rocks”, eroded at the bottom, bulging at the top with vegetation. Also opportunity to ‘Walk on the Ocean Floor,” 2 hours before until 2 hours after low tide. Near the tip of the Bay of Fundy the tidal change is dramatic. Cape Enrage, according to local lore, has been rated by Fodors as the best...

Aug 22, 2012 - Day 38 - Fredericton to Moncton, NB

WE found Coast Tire in Moncton quite easily and purchased a new tire and left the RV to have it installed. We used the car to go in search of service for the leveling system. Helpful suggestions from three different places eventually got us the Maritime Hydraulics that said they could look at it if we could come back on Monday. They also said that the last one they looked at was just a leaking o-ring so Garry has his hopes up that the problem can be resolved easily. We killed time by going the Magnetic Mountain in Moncton. Here you drive...

Jul 30, 2012 - Channel-Port aux Basques, NL to Moncton, NB

Well the Newfoundland part of our trip is over, and we're taking the ferry back to the mainland. Newfoundland was so beautiful and interesting. The experience will stay with us always. I am ready to make a tour and take others. I will never forget quaint fishing towns hugging the shores, waves crashing in sandy beaches and rocky cliffs, lighthouses, thousand of birds nesting, darling bobbing puffins and mighty, magnificent whales all shared with family. It was hard to call our visit to an end. I would have loved to gone to St. Anthony and...

Jul 29, 2012 - Moncton, Again

On Wednesday shortly after noon we pulled into Moncton for the third time on this journey. It was a three-hour drive from Peggy’s Cove Road in Nova Scotia. Moncton was on our normal route to Quebec but our primary reasons for making it a five-day stay were: follow-up work on the car; connecting with our dear friends Karen and Amy from Baltimore who are exploring the area with friends; and preparing for the days ahead in Quebec, Montreal, and Ottawa. Before going to our hotel, the Marriott Residence Inn, we drove to the “Red Satay Grill” on...
