Nova Scotia

The link is a google maps route similar to what we took. Once you get into New York and North it becomes more interesting fun. We liked the little border crossing on this route, it was easy.

Going north in Canada around the horn in New Brunswick was fun but it is on the ocean side of the world and weather may be a factor. There are other routes through new Brunswick that we did not take.

Prince Edward Island is a place we would go back to and is on the way.

We did a few off this route detours when we felt like it. Really enjoyed staying near Quebec and sight seeing for a few days. The city is beautiful but as your can see much of our travels were is much less populated areas. There seemed to be plenty of places to camp and enjoy on this route.

We would not suggest getting close to Chicago, just not much fun and 94, 90 were dangerous, bad roads, bad traffic. There are many routes around it. We had business in Elkhart, IN which is not our recommendation.!3e0

We regularly travel from northern VT to the Maritimes(hockey camps), and out to the left coast (kids; our son's on a boat out of Pearl). We enjoy travelling state and county roads vs interstates

Currently our favorite route through OH (eg Dayton/JC) is up to Hubbard, then NW PA (eg Oil City, Titusville) towards Bradford or Williamsport, over to Corning/Elmira NY, through the Finger Lakes region (either SR14, SR13, SR54 or US11 at Cortland, follow US11 to south of Watertown (avoiding Syracuse).

If you want to go through the Adirondacks/"High Peaks" area, get off US11 at Adams Center, pick up SR117 to Lowville, then SR812 to SR3 (Remington Corners), then Tupper Lake, Lake PLacid, Plattsburgh and north to Champlain/Rouses Pt.

If you want to go further north, stay on US11 (skirting Watertown)and follow it all the way across the top of NYS to Champlain/Rouses Pt.

Either way, take the Korean War Veterans Memorial bridge into VT, now US2, switch to VT78 just south of Alburg, take 78 through Swanton, Highgate Center to Sheldon where it joins VT105, over to Newport VT. Once in VT, you're never more than 10 miles from the Canadian border

From Newport,there are multiple ways to get through ME, all pretty, none direct. We prefer following VT105 to Bloomfield VT, then taking US3 south to Northumberland, then NH110 to Gorham, the US2, either all the way up to Houghton and New Brunswick, or Lincoln (hometown of Gary Gordon MOH) and ME6 to Macadam NB, or ME9 at Eddington to Calais/St Stephen NB and CA1. From there it's a straight shot to the TransCanada Rt2 near River Glade then to Amherst, NS

From Jackson Center to Newport VT is a full but leisurely 2 day trip with a 23' Safari, mostly 2 lanes, with friendly Walmarts in Canadaigua, Horseheads, Potsdam (NY campgrounds aren't cheap, some NYS parks require more than 1 day stays; check Allstays). There are a lot of neat places to see; a visit to the Corning Glass Museum is especially interesting. These roads are not difficult

Feel free to PM with ?s
Having lived in both Vermont and New York and trucked for 30 years I second this route! A stop at the Glenn Curtis Museum ( in Hammondsport on Rt 54 coming out of Bath, NY is great. Also look for the world famous Lake Memphremagog fur trout
Things are more like they are today than they ever have been.
