    Default DK Custom '19 Summer Adv. Riding to where Titanic Sank -Newfoundland Island & More

    A few years ago we rode the most western road in Canada. (see that Ride Report HERE)

    This year we're riding to the most Northeast piece of land in all of North America...which happens to be right at the edge of Iceberg Alley.

    Pretty stoked about this trip. Never been to the eastern part of Canada, nor on a 17 HOUR ferry ride, nor across an 8 Mile Long bridge, nor etc., etc.

    This is going to be a trip of a Lot of Firsts!

    Here are a few maps of our rough plans-



    17 Hour Ferry ride to Newfoundland Island



    Circling Newfoundland Island and "only a 6 hour" ferry ride back to Nova Scotia.



    In the interest of Time, Finances, & ease of accommodations, the Tri-Glide is in our "home on wheels" until we reach where we really want to ride.

    (see more on our new way of getting where we want to ride HERE)



    Before getting to Nova Scotia we stop by and see DJ and George at Pro-Action Suspension-

    Messing around...



    L2R- DJ, Kevin, George



    One more stop before we set up camp, unload the TG, and start riding-

    Hopewell Rocks...



    This place is crazy, google it...



    ...half the day, where we're standing, is underwater.



    Finally, we're in Truro. This is where the Ride Report start!



    More to come!

    Day 1-

    Left out of Hopewell Rock area. We stayed at this Apple Orchard...



    ...quiet and peaceful place that welcomes camping...



    ...near the Bay of Fundy.



    ...heading toward Truro, which will be our base camp for the next couple of days.

    Arriving at the Scotia Pines Campground early this afternoon...



    ...then left to explore...



    ...some of the country roads in the area.



    We have no plan...



    ...other than to explore the countryside...



    ...and be back at camp before dark.



    This was a great twisty road that turned to gravel...



    More in next post.

    Day 1 Concluded-

    The woods and miles of road...



    ...are seemingly endless...



    ...we will need to come back up here to do them justice.



    Mary in the Mirror-



    We have no real idea where we are in relation to camp, but it looks like rain is coming...



    ...so we punch in the address of camp to the GPS and choose the fastest route back...



    ...which gets us on Highway 102, straight thru a 15 minute rainstorm. lol



    Back at camp, the rain has passed.



    Getting everything ready for an early start tomorrow...



    ...ride to ferry, then around PEI, then back the long way via Confederation Bridge.

    Nice pics as usual Kevin.

    Is fuel expensive in Canada?
    Isn't it weird that in AMERICA, our flag and our culture offend so many people...but our benefits don't???

    Are you going to Oak Island? If so, tell Marty and Rick Lagina hello (The Curse of Oak Island - History Channel)!

    I don't see it on your maps and I can't seem to google a map of the layout of the entire area - so am asking this question blind..don't know if it is even in your travel area.

    Looks like a great start of another neat adventure!

    You have a beautiful trip a head of you. I would love to go back to Nova Scotia.

    I would like to suggest when you are in Nova Scotia take a day and ride the Cabot Trail. Ride safe!

    God bless

    Great start Kevin & Mary, except for the short rain the weather looked great.

    Yes, it is more expensive than in Mississippi...but I don't know that it is a lot more than some parts of the USA, like Cali or some places in the Northeast.

    It is purchased by the litre in Canadian dollars, so it is not an easy computation at the pump. But it works out to around USD 4.15 a gallon for premium. In Mississippi we pay between $2.75-$3.00 a gallon for premium (93 octane)

    Nope, Oak Island is southwest of Halifax in Nova Scotia. We are staying more north east of Halifax in our travels. Maybe next time!

    Yes, we could have gone earlier in the year and increased our odds of seeing icebergs, but we wanted to be in a bit warmer weather, but NOT hot weather.
