    • Travelling from Gaspe to Bathurst in New Brunswick via Bus ?

      Gaspé 12 hours ago

      Hi,
      I am travelling to Gaspe airport (YGP) from Toronto (YYZ) via Air Canada. Once I reach Gaspe I intend to travel in a rental car to New Brunswick, PEI, Cape Breton. The whole trip is around 10 days long.
      I checked with the rental car companies and the province of Quebec has per Km pricing and no kms are free.
      Hence I need to move out of Quebec and then rent a car preferably in the province of New Brunswick (Bathurst or Moncton) for the entire trip.
      Can some one please help me in this regard. How do i travel out of Gaspe via a Bus or any other means to Bathurst in New Brunswick ?
      Moreover if someone knows of any rental agency in Gaspe, QC that charges just like in the province of Ontario pls do let me know ?

      The family is heading out this summer camping. We have fished Lorette ponds but that is crazy. Too many people and too few fish. I heard there is a pond or lake that has Char. Can anyone confirm this? And what lures are you using? My 6 and 8 year olds would love to catch something on this trip. Thanks Ed

      What's the best way to travel across Canada?

      Canada Jun 25, 2015 at 9:10 AM

      I'm planning a cross Canada trip for the summer of 2016. We're a family of 5, with children who will be between 16 and 20 next summer. The outline of the plan is to start in Vancouver, and progress leisurely eastward over a period of 1 - 2 months. These plans are preliminary, I'm open to suggestions!

      The ideas I've had for transportation so far are:

      1. Renting an RV
      2. Renting a car and staying in motels
      3. Mixing it up between methods of transportation (planes, trains and automobiles...)

      I'd like to have the leisure to stop for a few days when we come across a nice place. I already have in mind Vancouver Island, the Rockies, one or two Great Lake beaches and Niagara. It seems an RV would be the most suitable for this requirement, but I'm open to other ideas.

      Does anyone have experience or advice that I could benefit from? This could include:

      1. Method of transportation
      2. Places we must visit

      Thanks for any help!

    • Trip around North America

      Vancouver Jun 29, 2015 at 6:24 AM

      I am taking a trip of about 4-5 weeks in July-August, with my wife. I will be driving from Florida to San Diego, Vancouver, Montreal and back to Florida. We will be tenting in Federal and State/Provincial campgrounds mostly, with a mix of motels and cabins, friends and family.

      In 1976 we did a similar trip from Montreal to San Francisco, Mexico City, Houston and back with our three children and in 1978 we did another another one again from Montreal to Los Angeles, El Paso and back. Our visiting the Northwest has been postponed until now. I have had my fair share of traveling, but most of it was done prior to the internet and its wonderful opportunities to learn and communicate.

      I would appreciate suggestions on how to publish a log of the trip while making it, what campgrounds to take, "don't miss" nearby locations and any other comments that may be applicable.

      I have posted a map to my Google Drive, but don't know how to make it available here for comments and suggestions.

      Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with me.

      Lumsden Mar 9, 2012 at 4:57 AM

      My father Thomas 'Peter' Howard, as a young man spent a year by the Qu'appelle river growing grain on the quarter section held by his uncle Richard John Everall, so that 'Jack' could return home to Shropshire to visit his family. He sowed, cultivated and harvested the grain which he took to numbered bins by the railway line where it was picked up and taken East, and he received a cheque in due course. He was quite alone for this time, but was welcome in a neighbouring home presided over by 'Granny" Wilson who I believe was Scots. She encouraged him to do a world tour, and gave the name of relatives by marriage, Idiens in New South Wales in Australia. He did do so and kept a diary, but sadly, we have had to rely on verbal memories for his Canadian time. He passed through on his homeward journey, but broke his journey further west at Swift Current where he worked during the winter of 1929/30 for a man called Lundqist at a line camp I think. He said the 'tumbleweeds' were mustard plants.

      Mrs Everall, born Mary Ann Howard in Bishops Castle in 1863, did not linger long in the area, but if anyone has news of her, I'd be glad to know of it.

      Does any of this tally with any records at the museum or memories of an oldest inhabitant? He said that the young tended to pick up their sticks and move to more favourable places, but I see that this area like many others has gained residents in the intervening period. Someone may have a letter or a memory of the period. Anything about the Wilsons or the Everalls would be very interesting.

      Cheaper accommodations - Inns

      Saskatoon Feb 10, 2010 at 9:30 PM

      v's larger hotels.

      Anyone know about Confederation Inn, or The Westgate Inn? Both along 22nd St W & Circle Drive W
      They're definately a lot cheaper than hotels like, say, Days Inn or Country Inn & Suites.
      But is it worth it? I wouldn't be spending a lot of time there & extra comforts (found in more expensive hotels) aren't a priority. But then I don't want to stay in a dive either!
      I just want a comfy bed, a clean room, hot water and a feeling of safety.
      I'll have a car too, so distance to things won't be a problem.

      So just wondering if anyone knows of & can give an opinion on these two places.

      Much appreciated,

    • Nearly five hours to waste in Regina...what to do, what to do?

      Regina Jul 25, 2007 at 1:56 PM

      Hey there;

      I'm taking a Greyhound to Toronto, and my trip sees me stopping in Regina for nearly five hours.

      So...the good question is...what to do?

      This stopover is from 4:00pm to 8:50pm...that gives me plenty of time to spend, exploring, at least, the downtown core. What I'd probably want to find is a health club (like the YMCA) so that I can have a quick work out and shower...and maybe a quick bite to eat.

      A coffee shop with wifi access would be great, or a cyber cafe, so that I can check my email, as well. Or an arcade with DDR, so that I can expend some extra energy.

      Who knows? Even a coffee date just for the heck of it? Who's to say?

      It's all good and fun, my planned trip is for the middle of August. I haven't nailed down a date yet, but that's forthcoming.

      Thanks for reading, and thank you in advance for responding.

      Yours sincerely,

      Dizzle

      Hello Everyone,
      Well I am going to visit the lovely Saskatoon in July and looking forward to it from what you all say in the tip pages etc.

      You are all in the know, so tell me if you think Westjet will have a fantastic seat sale after I buy my flights from Toronto to Sask this week ( I am looking at Canada Jazz airline) - raise your hands if you think I should hold off for a while (get those crystal balls out) It is crazy to think I can get from Belfast in NI to Toronto cheaper - anyway...

      The next thing is, do any of you have brilliant insight into Car Hire in Saskatoon - I need to get a car/
      big car to fit 6 of us and luggage and head to Yorkton.

      Any advice would be great.
      Looking forward to tasting those berries.
