Jan 17, 2011 - Rain in Florida

It is raining today. We are in bokeelia Fl on Pine Island. We are camped in a friends driveway. Quite comfy and have water and electric. We have our 2 dogs with us, our travelling companions have 1 and the friends we are visiting have a dog so we have lots of action. They get along fairly well. We see it is quite cold in Moncton so hope you are all safe and warm.Will update when we are back on the road

Jan 13, 2011 - Slow start

Hi Folks, sorry to have been so long getting a note put here but events have conspired against us. First our truck got sick and then I got sick so the gist of it is we are only now in Richmond Virginia. We got caught in the snowstorm along with 100 or so truckers. now we are finally driving on bare roads. We plan to be in Florida for my birthday on sat. Hope it warms up there as it was only 50 F today but at least there is no snow so far LOL Best to all Joan and Rob

Jan 4, 2011 - Trip of a Lifetime

Well, tomorrow is our big day- we are off to Arizona!! Our plans include stopping in Texas to see my sister and possibly connecting along the way with our fellow travellers Bob and Donna. We are excited and a little nervous but I am sure once we are on the road we will settle down. I will try to update everyone on at least a weekly basis - if not more often. Blessings to all our friends Bob and Joan

Sep 15, 2010 - Day 21 Moncton, NS Camp

we have finished the nova scotia part of our trip but we've decided to cancel our trip up to gaspe due to the constant bad weather wind & rain... we are now heading else where following our noses with no plans as yet - heading back to the USA for cheaper gas/food/camps etc. their taxes are mostly for their health plan and can be as much as 30% if you have a city/sales/prov/health tax... we cannot figure how these people can live with such a high cost of living... we are camping outside moncton, tried to go there yesterday but traffic and...

Aug 2, 2010 - Magnetic Hill

Pretty much 4 days in Moncton and ready to move on, PEI tomorrow! Have spent the time getting haircuts, getting the oil changed in the truck, grocery shopping, and even took in a movie, Salt, pretty good movie in all. Today we did some of the sights of Moncton, Magnetic Hill, etc. Pretty heavy on the etc. as for the first time we have hit a city with not too much to see. Browsed around the souvenir shops at Magnetic Hill for about an hour and then did the actual Roll Up The Hill deal in the truck. Pretty hard to grasp why this landmark has...

Jul 30, 2010 - A New Province!

Today was a pretty uneventful day, other then right off the bat Melanie, Marilyn's name for the GPS, tried to send us on a ferry that hadn't been in operation for over 20 years! We were soon back on the right road and crossing into our 7th province, New Brunswick, at the town of Campbellton. A stop at the info centre gave us maps and camping info, and directions to hit the highway to Moncton. We decided to skip the scenic drive, we had crossed over into the Atlantic Time Zone and had lost an hour, and headed out on the direct route to...

Jul 2, 2010 - New Brunswick Bonjour

Crossed over to Canada this morning and back to the land of Kilometers, litres and Timmie's. Finally got asked the hard questions at the border and had to pay duty on my smokes and alcohol as we had crossed 3 times in last 2 days, worked out OK but as we all know tell the truth to the questions and you will be treated OK. Weather nice in day time but it was like 8C last nite so the extra cover is staying on bed for now. Seems funny tho seeing the bilingual signs and speed limits after 3 months in the US. Off to PEI and friends tomorrow to...

Nascar Adventure

Jun 23, 2010 - Fundy National Park

The last few days we have been enjoying the Fundy Bay and Fundy National Park area on the southern coast of New Brunswick. Monday, we drove from Fredericton, NB to the Fundy Bay coast at the National Park near Alma, NB. We had rain most of the way, but we only found fog as we checked into the campground in the afternoon. As there was a geocache on a hike, we drove out to Wolfe Pointe. As we drove out to the point, the sun broke out and we thought it would be a great hike of about 4.5 km. Luckily, we left with our rain jackets in the...

Sep 29, 2009 - Rainy Moncton, NB

September 29 – Tuesday Dave & Sharron and Norm & Marian left this morning for Saint John. Gary & Elaine stayed in Moncton with Shaun & Dianne – Shaun’s back is very painful, making it difficult to move so driving is not an option for him today. Gary took his truck this morning for an oil change. This afternoon we took Shaun to Emergency at the Moncton hospital to see a doctor. After a 21/4 hour wait, he was seen – diagnosed with a strained muscle and given a prescription for analgesics/muscle relaxant. It was cloudy all day, but this...
