Jun 30, 2017 - Parc Plaisance to Ottawa

Riding Day Thirteen Friday June 30 Plaisance to Ottawa 4 hrs 6 min of 87 hrs 34 min of riding 74.2 km of 1416.1 km ridden 189 meters of 5945 meters of climbing 1694 calories of 34309 calories burned It is crowded in our tent. Not in the number of people in the tent but in the number of bags strewn into corners and on table tops. It is easy to shed and toss; a lot harder to assemble with four other guys pushing for their bags. A lot like a sprint final at the Tour du France. The assembling of packs is made easier by Ron and Michael B heading...

Feb 25, 2017 - Depart Gatineau pour Perdido Key, Floride

Belle route seche de la maison jusqu'a Scranton, PA. Les douanes 3 min et pas de file d'attente. Super chanceux. Syracuse il faisait 22 Celcius.

Sep 7, 2011 - Gatineau Park

Day 2 saw us heading back over the river into Quebec to Gatineau Park. We all felt we needed a bit of nature. Gatineau Park was one of the earlier areas to be considered as a national park due to concerns that the Gatineau Hills were being stripped of trees in the 1930’s. Prime Minister Mackenzie King a cottage owner spoke passionately to Parliament. In 1938 the government purchased the first few properties to start the park The Park is now 88,000 acres and managed by the National Capital Commission. After getting our bearings our first...

Jun 25, 2011 - Belleville, Ontario

Although it is only 250 miles from Gatineau, Quebec to Toronto, Ontario, our next destination, we decided to have a leisurely drive and stay overnight in a small town, Belleville on Lake Ontario, on the way to Toronto.

Eastern Canada 2011

Nov 26, 2010 - Retour (jour 3) Arrivé à la maison

Dernière mise à jour. Levé 4:30h, départ 5:30h. Belle journée, plein de beaux défis. Départ dans la brume, avec ensuite un peu de neige, de la pluie et pour combler le tout un vent à écorner les boeufs, à certains endroits j'ai dû reduire ma vitesse à 40 Mph (64Km/h). Nous sommes arrivés à la maison à 13:30h. Arrivé dans la neige, toute une bienvenue. Stationnner le motorisé, le vider et se preparer à aller souper avec nos amis Richard & Louise. Pas choqué d'être arrivé mais nous aurions préférer rester là-bas.

La journee etait ombragee et partiellement ensoleillee par endroits, mais pas de pluie. Beaucoup de chevreuils morts sur le bord de la route. Apres 12 heures de route avec quelques petits arrets de 20 minutes aux 2.5 h, nous somme arretes pour la nuit au Flying J, Clear Brook, VA. On a essaye de se rendre...

Jul 15, 2010 - More People and Horses

The Canadian Museum of Civilization Thursday afternoon We spent the afternoon in Gatineau, Quebec, visiting the Canadian Museum of Civilization. We had two hours to see a museum that could keep you entertained for a week. Highlights were their exhibits on First Nation People and Cultures, and a special exhibit devoted to the Horse. It was a day for horses, and the exhibit only added to our admiration for this fantastic animal friend. We caught the Tour Bus back to Ottawa and ended the day with a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral and a leisurely...
