Canadian Maritime Caravan is starting…

Longest covered bridge - 1218 ftMost of the 20 caravanners pulled into My Brothers Place two or three days early for the start of the caravan on Saturday, July 14th, 2007. By Saturday, our vehicles were inspected, tire sizes noted to facilitate quick repair if there is a flat, large sticker with numbers identifying our participation in the caravan, and trip logs, jackets & name tags distributed.  Although we had several 4:00 p.m. happy hours already, we met for 1.5 hours on Saturday afternoon for introductions, instructions and tips. 

McLobster SandwichSunday, we carpooled to Hartland NB in what I call a test run through customs  — as well as a trip to the New Brunswick Visitor Center to learn about NB and receive a bunch of literature & maps, and then onward to the the longest covered bridge in the world — 1218 feet.  On the way back, even though we had already eaten lunch, Herb saw a McDonalds selling McLobster Sandwiches, and just had to stop.  We split it into three pieces to share in the car.

First team meetingSunday night, we are having a group dinner in the park followed by our meeting for Monday’s departure with our RVs. The meal was a nicely prepared pork roast, peas & carrots, potatoes & gravy and homemade sauer­kraut, followed by a wonderful straw­berry shortcake.
