Prince Edward Island and the Maritimes

We just returned from our second trip to PEI from Maine - but our first with the Airstream. Customs, as before, was completely uneventful in both directions - except that we had to give up 5 fresh eggs on returning to the U.S. There story was that there is some sort of "chicken" virus going around. My thought was that it was just before lunch and the U.S. customs agents were having an omelet at my expense! With respect to passports or other identification, we were never even asked to show either - entering or returning. I guess we appeared fairly harmless!!!

My only comment, with respect to Canada's highway 2 - the principle route across New Brunswick - is that they need to get a new supplier for their bridge joints! Most of this highway is relatively new - with some stretches not even completed yet - but the bridge joints are a nightmare. They will literally jar your teeth unless you have a vehicle with a real soft ride!

We stayed at Twin Shores while on PEI. A very nice - and large - campground. Adult sites were well-separated from the family sites if you so chose. Unfortunately, it started raining the day after we arrived and continued until the morning we left. On the way up - and on the return - we stayed one night each way at Macawac Provencial park - just West of Fredericton, New Brunswick. This is a beautiful and quiet campground. The sites are electric only.

We only saw one other Airstream on this trip to the Maritimes. It was a vintage unit, around 22' in length, and we encountered it at an Irving fuel and restaurant stop in New Brunswick. Unfortunately, our 53' length forced us to park in the truck stalls whereas they were able to park in the car parking lot. That kept us from meeting each other.

That is such a beautiful area. We traveled around New Brunswick and Nova Scotia for 10 days two years ago when we attended the Region One Rally held in Lunenberg, NS. There were approximately 100 A/S trailers in attendence for that event!

Attitude is the only difference between ordeal and adventure
