Sep 14, 2011 - Fitroy Provincial Park

It was another short drive from Mattawa. Route 17 is very inconsistent with stretches of very smooth road, stretches of bad road, and construction interruptions. We spent the last three nights at Fitzroy Provincial Park. The park lies just north of Fitroy Harbour, ON. The closest town of any size is Arnprior. Like The Chutes, Fitroy has a number of very spacious campsites that provide electricity only. We needed 70 feet of chord to reach the power post. Once again the park is overpriced at $42.25 per night but provides a great...

Jun 7, 2011 - Our Journey Begins!

We started out this morning at 7:35 after a bit of a teary goodbye to Shawn. We immediately hit traffic 5 minutes away in Bedford, NH. At 8:12 Ava asked if we were in Alaska yet. After she asked a handful of times, Jack got down to her level and had her hold up both hands and count how many fingers she had. He told her that's how many days it'll take to get to Alaska.

Wednesday April 29…11:00pm On the road at 7am, and our first stop before leaving Plattsburgh was to fill up with propane. Even with the exchange rate still at 1.25, we are cheaper filling up here before entering Canada. The propane level in the tank had never been this low, and I was hoping that maybe by filling it up, it would fix our problem with the fridge not running on gas. For whatever reason, this did not fix the problem. Not a big deal, because we’ll be plugged in to electric for the next 6 months. Arrived in Ottawa around 12:30pm....

May 3, 2008 - Back in Canada

Saturday May 3 We left Alex’s house in Watertown at about 8am. Drove to the Walmart Supercenter and bought a bunch of groceries and other items that we’re going to need during the month that we know will be more expensive in Canada. Then, we filled up the gas tank for $150. At current exchange rates, it worked out to about $1.02 CAN per litre, so that’s still quite a bit cheaper than we will be paying in Canada. We had no problems at the border, although the border guard sure did ask a lot of questions. They already had 2 other RV’s pulled...
