If you were at the Algonquin in New Brunswick you were just over 2 hours from me.

Good day! 34 at 5 PM and no sun (well ok very filtered) the smoke is so thick. Can`t keep the buds going fast enough to prevent the throat from getting irritated but I am trying. Got momma to the doc today for her final vist after the hand surgery and all is well so no more errands no more work just bloddy relaxing now until the 14th. Brad is Algonquin big rig friendly?
Have a great evening

Reg if we are talking about the Algonquin in NB, I would say not so much but I am sure you could park your trailer somewhere overnight or the whole rig and walk to the motel. It is a tourist attraction so there must be a trailer park around there.

Thanks JG I`ll check it out. I have an rv park app that i will use for most of the trip and a little local knowledge helps! I have contacted Stonehurst and they seem ok and able to take big rigs and Yorkies!

Big rig sites are limited but are available. We have a 30 foot travel trailer towed with a Suburban. My wife does all the booking, I just do the paying and driving! LOL  She says on the web site you can specify the length of your equipment and it will tell you what sites work.  The thing I find crazy about Algonquin is it only has two fill/dump stations and the park is massive with many separate campgrounds each offering hundreds of sites. They really need to upgrade and move into the 21st century. Pog lake is my favorite at Algonquin FYI

If your going to book online it's a bit of a racket in that you can only book 5 months ( I think?) in advance. If you stay up and book to the minute of the 5 months you will likely not get a spot. What's happening is you book the month ahead then cancel a week or so later the first 3 weeks that you don't want and pay the penalty ....... This system sucks but it's whats needed to get a spot in the dates you want.

Good morning all, we are in for another hot and humid day. Temps will only reach 28 but the humidity will bring us up around 38. Have a good day all.

Good morning 15 and will hit 32-35 today. We are covered in smoke from the fires still and will be for a number of days, my voice sounds like I have taken up cigarettes again.
Have a great day

Good day lads, 29 at 5:30 and no sun again today. The fire is very close to the power substation that powers west Vancouver and the whole Island so this should be interesting stay tuned.

Good morning, looks like another over 30 day today. Thanks Dan we may or may not be in for trouble mostly depends on the wind as to which way the fire goes but you can bet that substation is under a blanket of fire retardent now. Boy its funny how things go unoticed, last night we played cards until 9:30 went to watch some tv while the campground somehow filled up under our noses. This morning at 6 I stick my nose out and holy crap where did all these people come from. I can tell ya today will be a hoot I can feel it.

Good morning, rain at last but that also means cancelation of today's car show. For those who care, this is a good time to buy some US money for use when you go south of the border or buy car parts or anything that has to do with their exchange. We have a US money account that we use now and then and it comes in handy when the exchange is low. It shure is better to pay 80% than 65% but that is just us. The exchange today is 79.xx%
Weatherwise it is a cloudy wet day and 19 at this hour.
Have a great day.

Good morning, wish you could send some of that moisture this way JG. Long term says no relief for next 2 weeks and getting warmer. The exchange is getting better and its not a bad time to buy for sure. My mom and dad used to buy a bit each payday and figured it would average out to a decent rate over time which I think it did. We had thought about going through the northern states on our trip back east but I think we will stay in Canada.

Can't blame you for staying in Canada, Trump might let you in but not out and then you would really be in deep caca.
