Questions about trip planning for Eastern Canada trip
I am planning a long trip through Eastern Canada this summer (June through September 2015). This will be my first long trip with my trailer, Eggsistential the Free Range Egg. Although I live in Texas, and have a Casita (but love those Escapes), I joined this Forum in the hopes of getting the benefit of the experiences of Canadian travellers (I am a dual citizen). I have general questions about how far in advance one should make campground reservations (I would like to keep things as flexible as possible), info/suggestions for internet access, and I would love to get route and campground suggestions.
Generally, I will be leaving Texas in June, crossing into Canada at the east end of Lake Ontario. There are a couple of border crossing options, so suggestions on selecting one would be welcome.
I will do some visiting in Ottawa, then head east by way of the Eastern Townships of Quebec. My route from there is undetermined, but I think I have time to see a lot in the Maritime provinces, including Newfoundland.
My style is low-key, low budget to the extent possible. I have a solar panel, so I am capable of boondocking occasionally.
I will have my road bike with me, so if there are any cycling opportunities you know of, please make a suggestion.
I am interested in the visual arts, and do a bit of drawing and painting, and would love to know about quirky museums/art galleries/neighbourhoods etc.
I know this is pretty open-ended, but that means all info is welcome!
I look forward to hearing from you, and hope to have an opportunity to give back to the forum.
