May 25, 2011 - Exploring Bonaventure

Our campground in Bonaventure was on a spit of land right by the sea but this time we were not right on the beach. We decided we needed some exercise and de-stressing so taking the excellent walking/bike path we went first to the lighthouse and then walked all the way pass the town to the other side all the way along the sea front. An excellent walk.

May 24, 2011 - A day not to remember!

We had sent photos and e-mail to Tiffin regarding the marks/cracks we had found on the roof(See photos on 22 May 2011)and the reply was as follows: ".....what you have happening on your roof is the fiber glass on the corners was not heavy enough for the movement of the coach causing hair line cracks to show up on the corners. For the time being you can put sealer on the cracks to avoid any water damage to the coach. The coach will need to brought back to the factory for the repair to the roof." When we were in Red Bay for six weeks in...

Well we began this morning by having to add transmission fluid to the RV. Now this is done at the back and the dip stick for this particular place to put fluid is about 8 feet long. Bob asked for my assistance. Check out time was 11 am and we were really pushing the time limit for leaving but no one has ever gotten hot under the collar if we were a little late before. Plus we’re not going anywhere until there’s transmission fluid in the engine!! So it’s looking bad because we really need to be on level ground or better yet, it would help if...

The Trip of 2010

Aug 11, 2008 - Day 67 to Day70

Day 67 Today’s Plan; Start our tour of the Gaspe. We have elected to move on rather than stay another day to go to the Citadel and the Plains of Abraham. I think it’s the crowds and the language thing. Quebec is as bad at having no English signs as BC is at having no French signs. Our muscles are stiff, too, and need a rest. Following our plan, we stay on the secondary highway. It’s bumpy at times and we go slower, but there is little traffic, which makes the driving simpler. The road follows the coast and goes through every town on the...

Aug 12, 2007 - Bonaventure, Quebec

We've had 2 days of driving mountain grades. This is such a tiny place and only 4,000 ft mountains but they jut right up from the St. Lawrence, causing curves and 8 - 17% grades for driving. The poor old motorhome and the driver are tired! This is the end of the Appalachian chain of mountains and the national park we stayed in last night had some International Applachian Trail in it. We biked a little and really enjoyed the exhibits about the cod fishing here. Tonight we are about 100 miles further WEST as we rounded the tip of the...
