After we crossed the border into NB our GPS went wonky - it couldn't find Moncton or any other destinations that we tried to punch in. We thought it was our system so Barry checked with a Dodge dealer in Moncton and this has happened to others. He said once we get into the Montreal area it will come back and be fine. Now Margaret II (aka Sandra) (the GPS is Margaret I) has to be on top of the maps and destinations so Barry doesn't have to make too many U turns with the rig. Good thing there aren't too many major roads or interchanges in Nfl.
We crossed to Nfl on Tuesday the 23rd (a 5 1/2 hour sail) and had to park the rig in the dark once we landed - something we don't like to do - brings back memories of backing into a tree when we were in Alaska. Margaret II got out with a walkie talkie to help the process - so no tree issues.

|Nfl Ferry - Blue Puttes - one BIG boat! We were able to leave Buddy in the trailer and he was just fine. We had 747 like comfortable seats on the 8th deck!|

|Sunset on Bonne Bay in Gros Morne Ntl. Park. We stopped here for the night en route to St. Anthony.|
|The Viking Trail - the drive from Port Aux Basques to St. Anthony is about 8 hours. We took two days to get there.|
|A power line pole secured with this crib of rocks. We saw many of these and figure that they are unable to dig the poles down deeply enough so hence the rock crib. to secure the pole.|
|One of many wood piles all along the Viking Trail - we figure many people likely heat their homes with wood.|
|One of many wee garden plots along Hwy 430 (the Viking Trail) - some had scare crows and many had sheets of flapping plastic tied to the fencing - to scare away the critters I guess. These appeared to be in the middle of nowhere.|
