Hi Norm

Hope for you it warms up a bit up there.
I was in Deer Lake last night for work, still lots of snow, from the air I could see all the lakes still frozen hard (they haven't even started to change color), and it was -13C this morning!! Looks more like February than April!

We're planning a NL & Lab trip one day, I enjoy all what you write about your experience up there.

Thanks for posting about the icebergs, Norm, here is something that showed up a few minutes ago:
Town suddenly dwarfed by massive iceberg | Fox News
It does appear it is a bumper year for icebergs.

I have a set of photos of various harbors filled with slob ice. It's a little cool but I suspect mid-May will be OK. This year we are traveling with a long time RV friend. He plans to return via Labrador.

There are some incredible photos of the iceberg off of Ferryland. Hope you see something like that. Have a good time.

Norm and Ginny,
We'll be a bit behind you, arriving on the 25th. We'll keep an eye out for you and hope we cross paths.

We'll be in touch when we get there - I'm sure we'll find a time and place to have lunch or dinner together and share travel tales.

Safe travels.

Ahhhh…..Summer in Newfoundland…..icebergs, moose, interesting rocks, local MUSIC, great hikes, fish and chips, mooseburgers, warm and friendly people…life doesn’t get much better. I know you guys will have a great time! Connie and I will not make it this Summer…we need to take care of a few things before another big trip. I hope you guys post plenty of pictures for us to enjoy.

Miss you

We will be in NL until around the 10yh of July. WE return for a month in NH followed by a week at the Machias Blueberry Festival. WE must be getting old because were doing a lot of repeat trips, 8th time to NL and 3rd year in a row at the Blueberry Festival. We are heading south after the festival and hope to be in FL in September. Our oldest and youngest sons have gotten lots at our Escapee park and the oldest son is relocating from Seattle to Wauchula next September. We decided to return early to greet him.

Are you two going to be in ALabama in early September. I really like to stop by some time and get a hug from Dakota. Now there's an inside joke.

When I call up the NL Caravan on FRV the lead picture is Dakota near the cliffs. It reminds me of how wonderful that Caravan was and how nice the people all were.

Take care.

Norm and Ginny

Wonderful to hear from you and to know you are well and thriving. We are indeed looking forward to another NL trek for all the reasons you list. Too much of the island that we haven't yet explored! We'll definitely post some pics. Do let us know if your future travels bring you to northern new england. We'd love to see you both and of course Dakota as well.

The music festival and a group of 12 people traveling in a loose caravan for the first time created some wonderful memories for us. To have Norm & Ginny guide us- priceless! The National Park pass we purchased last year in NL will allow us to navigate our Treat Severn Waterway with no lockage fees this summer, so unfortunately no NL for us this year.

Great Memories

Norm and Ginny
It’s not because you’re getting old….it’s because you have found your favorite places to visit. I know you guys are happy your sons have bought lots and moving to FL. Connie and I will be somewhere in the East in September. We’ll let you know so we can meet somewhere.

That caravan was wonderful. We often remember and comment about a particular sight or event or person or restaurant from last Summer. Dakota would love to see you guys again and would be happy to give you a hug.

David and Susan
Connie just said we might have to make another trip up to New England for more maple syrup. We finished our last gallon. All three of us (including Dakota) would love seeing you guys again.

Bill and Joyce
Great to hear from you guys! You both inspired us with your boondocking skills! We learned a lot and enjoyed your company. Hope our paths cross again!

All the best,
Kirk and Connie
