Re: newbie from PEI

Gocamp... that is what we call the fixed link. It is about 12 KMS long bridge. This bridge was built on land and a large barge was used to haul the pieces out in the water and put in place. We had to use a ferry untill this was built about 10 years ago. There was a big debate about how much this bridge would affect our Island way of life when built, a very politically charged debate at that.

Any one coming to Pei just contact me and I will try and help with the highlights to see, retired so have the time .

Re: newbie from PEI

I just had a thought. my wife thinks i have too many of them!! maybe we could start up a stream for each province soo people from there or who has visited there can post all the great areas that one must see or do if visiting that province?
I know it would be helpful because we hope to start touring Canada and it might save a lot of research??

Or maybe a registry of people in each province that one could contact if necessary

Just a thought or two.

Re: newbie from PEI

I enjoy seeing new things and new places.

I have worked in most every village in the high arctic, the northwest territories, (before Nunavut was formed) Yukon and most of British Columbia, most of newfoundland, I have not been to Paulituk or alert bay in the north.
A few trips to Korea, japan and taiwan, mexico, and australia, It seems people from the west, like to travel and see things, more than easteners.
My wife has been to a few more places and countries than I.

During my working life before I retired, I and my family were relocated to new locations roughfly thirty times, you might say I went from dogs sleighs to jet airplanes.

Now my wife and I travel as a hobby. The escape 19 we are buying will most likely be used more for fishing and hunting camp than traveling, though it will make a few trips to Alaska, to visit friends over there. When we go into the mountains for Dahls sheep we will have to go back to small tents. sleeping on the ground no longer appeals to me.

Re: newbie from PEI

Yukon, I have to step in an offer a few words. I've lived in PEI for 40 years and we have the world at our doorstep.....and more coffee shops per capita than anywhere in the country. Grew up in NL and spend many years in the wilds of Labrador. Having travelled the Yukon and spent time in all the "hot spots" our experiences are similar...except for Whitehorse which is a very nice, though small city. Planning to escape to NWT and Yukon again in 2012.
You obviously robbed yourself of a great experience by not taking the time to take in the sights, sounds and everything we offer tourists. We only get 1.3 million a year. Our summertime population just about triples to over 300,000.
We invite you back and look us up and we'll see about sending you home with better memories.

Re: newbie from PEI

Back to seafood....

Our long term plan involves a cross Canada trip and visiting P.E.I. ( but not parts infected with Green Gables ) and seeing friends in Nova Scotia.

I've never understood the appeal of lobster. It's not that I dislike it, I just don't get it. And it appears that it is force-fed over there.

So, what are the chances of ordering a feed of crab. I presume crabs exist on the east coast? I like mine without the garlic butter, so I can taste the crab. Or, in black bean sauce....

Re: newbie from PEI

PEI sounds like a nice place to visit.
Is there a toll on the Fixed Link Bridge.

I almost forgot. Digby scallops. Have to be a few of those around.

And, I will try the lobster. Could taste entirely different in its home port.
