We're from Barrie and Aug.13th we'll pick up our new GTour at an orientation in London. Pretty excited since we've only camped in a 2 person/1 dog tent or from our van or canoe in the past. Apprehensive about the electric system/s since no experience but looking forward to "glamping". Our first trip will be to the RV show in Hershey Penn. to check out "stuff" and then off to North Myrtle Beach for golf and dancing. Yes, retirement. If we survive the dog and no divorce there will be many more km. in our future.

Happy trails and see you on the road.

Thanks for all the greetings and well wishes. Our summer 6 week adventure was wonderful. Mackinaw Island, Sturgis bike rally(a husband must see);best scenery in south Utah - Moab - Bryce Canyon - Zion Nation Park, all must sees. Through Colorado Rockies, Badlands, Death Valley. Grades where between 6-14 degrees and the Tourag TDI handle perfectly as did my driver. We had new back brakes but around Death Valley the Tourag informed us to get new front brakes, did that and felt safer. Yellowstone NP's Old Faithful just gave us a burb. Next summer Yukon, Alaska and NWT, with side trip to Oregon and Washington. Met a few full timers and they loved it. Safe travels everyone.

So great to hear of your travels. We are in the midst of "planning" our trip to the south this winter. Hoping to hike the Grand Canyon, bike Moab and what ever else comes our way.

Consider a visit to Canyon de Chelly as well. It was a highlight of our trip to the southwest a few years ago. We hired a guide and drove into the canyon. Four wheel drive is required or you'll need to hire a guide with a vehicle. You can't enter the canyon on your own. Our guide, who was Navaho, was a wealth of information. We spent about 5 hours in the canyon. It was amazing! The best money we spent on the whole trip!

Catjer -- I am curious if you have any northern Ontario/QC camping to offer feedback on. I've often thought of making the "most northerly" road trips in Ontario (599 to Pickle Lake) or QC (James Bay Road to Radisson/QC-Hydro.)

And my earliest memories in life are staying with the family in Algonquin.

And Ontario gems or off-the-beaten-path locations we might want to consider within the forum audience? [Myrtle Beach doesn't count ]

Ian

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your new Airstream! We're based out of Central Saskatewan. Our 28'FC has been a wonderful addition to our retirement adventures and could not be happier. If your ever in Central Canada, look us up.

Cheers
Doug

2005 I took my mc to Radisson, camped beside road. Things could have changed since then but it was an amazing trip. The quietness and isolation was incredible. Lots of little side roads with wonderful places to camp.

Hi Ian,
We haven't RV'd in Ontario yet but have travelled in some parts of Northern Ontario. The north shore of Lake Superior has some beautiful views and there are some good Provincial Parks.
Pickle Lake and other Ontario northern areas offer good fishing and hunting and are more isolated. Since I don't know your interests I can't give specific suggestions about other locations. Glad to help if you get more specific about interests (beaches, biking, fishing etc)

I don't want to necessarily hijack the thread - but how do you think one would fare with a 28' Airstream in tow; not on the road - I understand conditions are variable depending on upkeep, but rather finding good locations to overnight, enjoy the view, etc., without getting myself into a situation where I'm stuck backing out a narrow path, etc.?

Ian

2005 the road up to Radission was immaculate. I was there in the fall and the campsites were closed. I saw moose, bear and a beautiful wolf right on the road.
You have to use your judgement on the side roads, if they look wide and in good shape you will probably find a turnaround and have no problem. If not you get to practice your backup skills.
Getting a bit late in the year to go up there now.

Thumbs up Let's meet for lunch

If you are available to meet for lunch on Sunday, Nov 27th, at the Mohawk Inn at the 401 and Guelph Line, Campbellville at 1 pm, mark it in your calendar. Let us get together and chat with other local Airstreamers. Share local travel camping locations, tips and tricks of the fantastic AS, and boon docking. Dan and I will be there. I don't know how to send a private message so you can email me at carol1farr@gmail.com and let me know who is coming and I will arrange a table. We both look forward to meeting other Ontarian ASers
