And our trailer's only 20 feet long?
Hey, sounds like a plan! Killing time should not be a problem along that route. If you are really going to Nova Scotia, I can't see how you could get back next week anyway. Just the drive to the ferry in Bar Harbor is about 300 miles from any part of NY state (take a day or two and stop in Freeport along the way), and then you can easily use up four or five days in Acadia National Park, and a week in Nova Scotia. Hit the beaches along the southern coast, then the historic sites in Halifax, then Cape Breton or a side trip to PEI. If you've got the time, enjoy! You're lucky to have it!

We have spent nearly 40 nights in our 17-foot Caravel this calendar year alone -- with an active 4-year-old -- so I'm here to tell ya it only gets better with practice. The trip to International was 17 days straight and we didn't want to come back.

I hope we'll see you in Jamaica, full of great stories from your trip, a loaded digicam, and a bit of suntan!

Well, we are on Long Island.....so we are taking a 10am ferry to New London, CT on wednesday. Then we are spending that night at a campgaound in Kennebunkport, ME. Shouldn't be a bad drive.
We then have reservations in Acadia for thursday, friday, and saturday nights. And the plan is to stay sunday night, too, I expect.
Then, on to Nova Scotia. It seems that the ferry is VERY expensive for vehicles - something like $400 EACH WAY for the truck & trailer...! That is WAY too costly. So we weren't planning on spending too much time in NS for that reason (we hadn't even decided if we're going to take the truck there or not).

Anywho, we figured we'd meander back down this way after that. But I guess we're really in no rush.
I'm sure you're right, we'll have no difficulty spending the week up northish, then getting to Jamaica thursday. I guess we'll spend a night or two there....Or three. We'll see what we feel like.

No one would be offended, would they? There's no interior yet in the '56 Safari, so we'll be showing up in our <shhhh!> '62 Avion!

Nah, this is a Forum rally, which means there aren't any rules. I think a lot of us would be curious to see your Avion anyway.

Since you're considering taking the Bar Harbor ferry to Yarmouth NS on foot, just be aware that Yarmouth is a relatively small and not highly interesting town. The best part is the fast ferry ride on The Cat, IMHO. Taking the truck will give you mobility but if you aren't staying overnight I wouldn't bother.

Have fun -- see you in Jamaica

Help! They're Booked!

Of course, I've waited till the last minute, and now the campground is booked.
If anyone needs to cancel (or otherwise not show up) for friday or saturday night, please let me know. We'll be in the area!

Thanks so much....
oh, yes.
We don't really have internet access, so emailing me to let me know may not be too useful.



We'd really like to go!
Thanks, all....and if we miss you all, have a GREAT time!

-Chuck

Chuck,

You have a couple of options:

1) rluhr may not attend so perhaps you could take his spot -- rluhr, if you can let us know definitely if you are or aren't coming, that would be helpful.

2) over59 reserved an extra site -- if he hasn't already sold it to someone else, perhaps you could use that site -- over59, please reply and let us know if the site is still available

3) pam may not attend so perhaps you could take her spot -- pam, if you can let us know definitely if you are or aren't coming, that would be helpful.

Unhappy

Our site is available: #13. Sorry to say we won't be attending the rally after all. Got the front clearance lights wired and working, but no rear lights and no brakes! Jamaica SP is close enough that we may stop by and visit, depending on what else we end up doing on the weekend. Is there a potluck/ happy hour planned?

We haven't cancelled our reservation yet. If someone wants the site, let me know by Wed. Otherwise I'll just cancel it.
Doug

Dropping like flies you are. Offered extra site to Annz but have not heard anything.

It's available but limited to 17 feet. 13 may be larger?

I am sure there we be happy hours and cann't imagine not having a rally potluck.

[QUOTE=Over59]Dropping like flies you are. Offered extra site to Annz but have not heard anything.

Thank you so much for the offer. I have reservations in the Adirondacks for this weekend. They were made 9 months ago. Plus I have my Caravel at a horse trailer place where they are just checking the axle for me. I'm hoping they say it's ok for travel. It just made the trip up to upstate NY from La. and in May went to Montana from La. and back but the pictures of those broken axles on 65 Caravels made me worry. Is the NJ rally still on? I'll have to look at my map and see how far that is.
Have fun everyone!

Ann

Hey, all!

Glad to see the activity.
We got in - site #26 for friday night, then site #28 for saturday night.
If a site is open for both nights consecutively, then I'll switch to that.....in the meantime, we're coming, and we have reservations! WooHoo!!!

.....writing from the lobby of the Halifax Westin. I never said we'd be in the trailer the whole time!

OK, we'll see you all friday. Pray for nice weather!

-Chuck,. Stacy & Max

Looks like cruiser's site is still available. So is 19 for a 17 footer if needed. Where are Titu and Gail? May have gotten themselves locked in that fancy new SUV without the manual and cann't get out.
