THANK YOU, Paul (and Marilyn!) -- for the info -- I read a similar story on the weather on the RV.net - last year they said summer didn't arrive until August 18!!!!  We plan to leave MD July 10 or so and want to be back the middle of August....Good thing we have a heater!!!  I'd like to spend a little time in NS (Cape Britain), and also see PEI, but I think that will be another trip.  We're not traveling from Texas of course, but we'll need some travel time up & back and want to see the island.  The friends we are traveling with have been to both places, so we will discuss next week when we get together to plan the trip.
Again, thanks for the info -- we're looking forward to it, and I'll let you know how it goes!  Grin  I'll also pass on your weather info next week!!!! Cry

Thanks Judi --- you're right --- I priced the ferry with the shorter trip to Port aux Basques --- Do you know of any advantage in going into Argentia?  I know you are familiar with the area...we will have a few weeks in Nflnd so don't mind the drive at this point, and will be at campgrounds around the Provence.  I want to spend a little time on cape Britain as well -- we'll see how the time goes.  It's a shame to have to commit to a schedule....

Jerry, your trip is supposed to be fantastic!  I've heard of it, and it is the dream trip of many Canadians -- I think the hotels are owned by the Cdn railroad -- I stayed in one in Halifax (I think) on business ( Smile ) many years ago, and very nice.  Have fun!!!!

I might just do that, Bob!!!

However, the ferry thing is looking better than I expected -- unless I'm missing something, and using the website Jerry included, the rate for Linda, Me & the RV should be around $270 (Cn) each way. I'm sure the gas, etc. will be much more --- anyway, I'll be able to tell more after the trip...

Thanks, all, for your help/info

Yes Jerry, I read that some of the ferries through the Maritime have been discontinued --- certainly doesn't say much for tourism -- however, it's the same all over the world - and if fuel prices keep going up it may even get worse.  We will be getting together with our friends in a couple of weeks to plan the trip -- may end up watching a travel video with a glass of wine in the driveway!!!  Smile

Thanks folks, for the responses ---

Judi - I did read your previous on the Maritime, and I'm not sure what we'll get into -- I've been to NS many years ago on business, and really enjoyed, but Linda hasn't, so may try to work it in.  I've not been thrilled with NB (long story), but the couple we're going with has been to NB,NS, & PEI, and now wants to see NFLN.  Since we will only take 4 weeks, I have to do some serious planning to get it all in!!!

I have been to "Google" & have several travel books, but wanted to see if any of our group have made the trip.   That said, I didn't realize the ferry was that expensive --- I do have a phone number to verify the price, so will try that.  I don't think my friend realized it either!!!  Oh well, you can't take it with you!!!

Thanks again for the help,
Jack

Does anyone have any information on Newfoundland?  We're planning a trip there, along with PEI this summer.

Thanks,
Jack

Service seemed to be a problem as well --- the VW dealers won't touch them because it is an RV, and vice-versa.

FWIW - I really like the Magna shades from the factory, for all reasons stated by others.

The newer PCs have a china rig that is much better than the plastic --- you might try Carol at Phoenix for a replacement.

I am thinking of getting my wife an ipad for Christmas --- is there something I should know before I buy?  If I got her an iron, she'd probably throw it at me!
