North to Newfoundland

We left home this past Monday and drove up to Big Meadows CG in the Shenandoah NP where we spent a peaceful evening. There were two other Airstreams there and we had a nice talk with them.

In the morning we headed back to I81 to continue our slog north. We decided to stay on the Interstate highways until we reached Portland ME. Our second night had us in a PA State Park called Promised Land. A beautiful location on a lake with excellent facilities. $35 with a senior discount. Despite a barking dog next door we slept well with the FF running all night.

Packed up early as usual and got back out onto I84 heading for MA. The traffic wasn’t too bad going through Hartford, Ct and before we knew it we were on I495 going around Boston. These small states go by fast and before long we had reached our destination in Hampton Beach State Park in NH. They only had overflow parking which was fine. We did have to move sites due to some noisy neighbors.

We were facing east and hadn’t put up our windshield cover so we were awakened by the presunrise light. It was a very nice sunrise, a little intense once full sunrise had occurred.

Our goal for the day was Bar Harbor, Me which we made with no problems. We drove on Hwy 1 from Portland. Easy going trip and we arrived at the Bar Harbor RV Park early enough to get back out and see some of Acadia NP.

Tonight we are in Lubec, ME, the eastern most town in the continental US. Dorian arrives in the morning. Rain and wind all day is the forecast. We have an option on this site for another night.

are you really planning a trip to NFLd in mid to late September? I hope that you are planning on 'cool' weather. Snow is not unusual in September on the 'rock". Most campsites are closing down for the season by October first. Could be fun if you are prepared for sudden weather changes. Best of luck and safe travels.

We’re not just planning it, we are here. Not in Newfoundland yet, but that’s the plan. If the weather gets that bad we can always change them. Right now the weather is great.

September cool is relative mid 60’s in the days, sometimes 40’s in the nights. At the moment we are picking blackberries early Saturday morning and the weather is gorgeous - sunny and cool. Weather wise fall is the best time of year here. As school has started and many turn back to the routine of work and life some campgrounds shut after labour day. Others after Canadian thanksgiving on October.

I’m sure you will have a fantastic trip. Let me know if you have any questions.

Following along. Sounds great so far. We like highs in the 60s vs 98 with humidity at 80%. We hope to make this trip in the next few years.
Hope you have a fantastic time. Thanks for sharing.
Jeff

That had been more-or-less my question as well (on a previous thread; I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, so I know the weather). Fingers crossed that it doesn't get tedious for the OPs. Atlantic Canada can sock in with bone-numbing cold rain that feels like it will never end. Or not, depending on the prevailing patterns.

Better cooler weather than black flies and mosquitoes. We like it cooler than hotter. 96 back home. Don’t need that. We will be fine. If the weather gets too bad, we can adjust. So far, so good.

all good!
I didn't want to 'pee' on your parade but was just curious if you had researched the weather patterns on the 'Rock'. Have a great trip. I have traveled there many times when I was working but we are yet to pull the big coors can over for a tour.
Safe travels and have fun.
Pete

One third of the population in the province of Nova Scotia is currently without electrical power due to Dorian. I hope the destruction is not too intense. And I hope there aren’t too many long-term closures.

If you haven't read the book or seen the play, do.

Your trip sounds great. We're right behind you on I84, on our way to PEI, then NS, back down through Acadia. Not doing Newfoundland this trip, but will be interested in how it goes for you.

Where are you planning to cross over into Canada?
