I think I'd like to tag along for this, if I can.

I've been practicing my Moose avoidance around southern NB, and feel comfortable with being buried in a shallow grave and having my KLR parted out when I'm inevitably killed in a chip fat fire.

Using the Newfoundland counting system already? Shouldn't it be 254 applicants?

Come to think of it, that would be faster and probably a lot safer.

I don't know. Maybe some got out of line? Retirement synapse error.

Just got in from a trip the same distance away in Nova Scotia, 3 days, 600km. Provided I can work it into my schedule, I'm in.

This is one of the reasons when I'm traveling I like stopping at the old hotel or tavern at the end of the day. That is where you meet the real characters in life.

The new modern day franchise pubs just don't seem to offer that.

The best places to meet the characters here is on the wharf. You can stop anywhere and talk to anyone and it is considered normal. Most of the tales are told over a drink in the twine lofts on the stages.
If you get here during the food fishery you can get a berth in a skiff because you can only put 5 fish per person in the boat. As such lots of boats leave the wharf with only one man and all you have to do is ask. Motorcyclists are even better because the most you can take are a few cod tongues and a couple of fillet for your supper.
The old skippers prefer to split and salt the fish in the traditional way for fish and brewis.
