Gee Paul, I thought Nova Scotia was known for Trout and Salmon, not Bass. Ihaven't been up that way since the mid 70's. Old friend used to own a place in Clyde River. Ric

There was a half a plan in my family to ride up to St John's from NYC in May. Up through Nova Scotia to the ferry in North Sydney and across Newfoundland. When I actually plotted it out it looked like I was going to need 3 or 4 days each way and just don't have that kind of time and didn't want to spend the whole time on the interstate. I guess I didn't have a clear concept of just how big and remote parts of Canada can be.

Went to NS in August of 2001 from Buffalo NY, 3 days each way there and back, took interstate 90E to87N got off around Glenns Falls.

From there on it was secondary state roads took RT. 2  across to Maine picked up RT 9in Bangor to St. Stephens New Brunswick then to Nova Scotia

The 3 nights were, 1st in Rutland VT 2nd in Skowhegan Maine, 3rd in Monkton New Brunswick 4th Day put us in Annapolis Royal where we started our mapped out tour from.

Now keep in mind on the state roads we stopped at yard sales there and back to NS and any stores that caught our eye as we rode through town.  Best 2 and a half weeks ever...........

Coming from Buffalo, your trip would be about 300 or so miles longer each way than mine would be. The 3 day estimate is about what I thought would be comfortable to get to the ferry on the far edge of Nova Scotia. I assumed I wasn't going to make the same time on the rig that I normally would on a bike. I was also surprised to see it was an additional 8 or 9 hours ride from the where the Nova Scotia ferry comes in just to get across Newfoundland to St John's. That's where my estimated 4th travel day came from. I had to time this around a college graduation and relatives flying in from the UK with a side trip to Pennsylvania. No one needs me showing up with helmet hair and bugs in my teeth after living outside for 4 days (or so it was pointed out).

Glad you had an amazing time on your trip. I also had a very good bike trip there many years ago and ended up on Prince Edward Island for the only weekend that summer when it didn't rain. At least that was what the locals told us....
