Kelsow does NS to NL to LAB to QC to NB and home.

This trip happened a few weeks ago so some of the info may not be as accurate as it should be but I'll do my best.

5 of us left NS to NL to cross from the East coast to the West coast of NL, where I would leave the lads at some point to head north while they continued on to PAB.

We were supposed to be joined by our friend Dave, but he had a car accident 2 weeks prior and couldn't meet us, so we brought him along anyway.



So along for the ride was TStrom (Greg)


Gasburner (Stever)


Jason404 (Jason)


Jspeed (Jimbo)


And me taking the pix,



On our way to Cape Breton,


we met up with Canadian FJR (Scott). He wanted to ride with us for a while but had to turn around due to work.


Our first stop was Cape George and the lighthouse. This is one section of road most people bypass on their way to Cape Breton
and it is one of the better roads in NS.






Waiting at the Canso Causeway to open up to traffic due to a boat crossing through.


Being dicks,






Me


Seal Island Bridge,




Here we are at the ferry to Newfoundland,




WTF? Argentina?


I met this guy who was crossing Canada with his son in the sidecar. Very cool.


Getting into the ferry while having to listen to Harley "fags" (South Park reference) blip their throttles because of the echo of the ship.
Asshats.


It was deafening.

Strapping down,


Getting hammered on smuggled in home brewed wine. It packed a punch so thanks Jason.







Us on our way to getting loaded on $8.00 beers,


and full on foot long hotdogs. I think we ate about 12 feet of dogs,


Here enjoying the camaraderie of good friends in anticipation of a great ride.
