Route for Newfoundland and Labrador
View Larger Map
So here is what this years trip looks like, and we will be traveling in a counter-clockwise direction. One reason for this is the Marine Atlantic ferry to Port Aux Basques, Newfoundland from North Sydney, Nova Scotia. The trip from Rothesay to North Sydney is mostly 4 lane highway, and not a lot to see, so it will be a straight easy run, so it was easy booking a departure time. Going the other way was a gamble on timing the ferry schedule, delays on the TLH could make us miss our sailing. date.
The other ferries along the way are not as critical with reservations.
The total trip mileage is about 4100kms, and we have given ourselves a comfortable 14 days to do it. That gives us time to smell the roses and see some sights along the way. The more difficult part is going to be from just before the big E on the map to almost the H. Which is basically almost half the trip. A lot of gravel road and construction areas where they are paving the "freedom road"
We leave in the less than two months. JC. For some reason I am really starting to feel anxious and little nervous about the whole thing.
