Just for people who might be doing this in the future. We asked everyone on the NL Caravan List if they were willing to share their information with others on the list and all said yes

We limited membership to 20 trailers. We also had a waiting list of 3. As we move closer to the date we have had 6 rigs drop off and two from the waiting list join up for a total of 16 rigs.

Hi: honda03842... We're heading west in mid May so won't be able to join in. Sure hope you're going to do it again in 2017? Our friends from Florida want to do the East Coast but he doesn't like a boat ride of longer than 10 minutes!!!

Your friend and Ginny would be two 'land fast' people. I think we've taken these large ferry boats using the short ferry to Newfoundland at least 12 times (6 hours) and Ginny has never felt uncomfortable. Lately we've been taking the night ferry and sleeping most of the way. The long ferry takes 14 hours and travels in potentially larger seas, we've never taken it.

Ginny takes no drugs on the trip. The ship is amazingly stable. As well probably a dozen of our friends have gone based upon our writings and stories and everyone has loved it without a single problem at sea.

2017??? We had not thought that far ahead but I expect we'll be there. I'm writing this Newfoundland Guide. I'll attach the final version to a thread and update it after the trip. Whether we do it again or not the guide would help anyone.

Phones Heads up

We have been Verizon Phone users for decades and are considering switching at least one phone to T-Mobile.

First T-Mobile works in both Canada and the USA on the same plan.

Second we would get the 6 gigabyte plan. The Data plan also works in both the USA and Canada.

Third, In the USA you get unlimited data for Netflix, Hulu, Sling and others.

We plan to give it a try before our trip to NL.

Brimstone Head

Google has been running a commercial showing Brimstone Head on Fogo Island, NL for a couple of weeks. Brimstone head is one of the 'four corners of the world' and is located adjacent to the Lion's Club campground on Fogo Island.

We spent a happy week on Fogo and climbed the 'Head', the core of a former volcano. The campground is located on the ocean and holds a music festival each August.

Canada useful phones

I dropped my phone last night and shattered the screen.

I'v decided to get a T-Mobile phone because it works in Canada and the USA with the Data Plan is active in both countries.

The following from their add:

It's simple. Every qualifying Simple Choice plan comes with:

No annual service contract & no data overages Unlimited data even after all your high-speed 4G LTE data is used, at reduced speeds. Unlimited calls and text to and from any number, including mobile phones, in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. PLUS use your monthly 4G LTE data in Mexico and Canada like in the U.S., at no extra charge
With Binge On™ - stream unlimited video on the most popular streaming services like Netflix, HBO NOW, Hulu, and others for FREE without using your high speed data. Data Stash™ rolls up to 20GB of your unused 4G LTE data forward in to the next month, for use in the next 12 months. Included with our 6GB and 10GB options. Music Freedom™ with unlimited music streaming on our network from top services without burning your data

Barb,

Everything's grand. I'm finishing just completing version 2 of the NL Guide, aiming for month end. I plan to meet up with Dave who's also in FL to finalize our plans.

I did get your PM yesterday but it was our Park's annual meeting, sorry I did not get to you last night but thank you for contacting me.

I can't wait to get back on the road. We leave FL April 1st heading north. Our target is to get to NL around May 15th, ahead of the caravan.

The best way to reach me is via my private email and put NL Caravan in the subject or feel free to call me anytime.

Look forward to meeting you,

Hi
My name is Tim and my wife and I are heading North (from Georgia) in hopes of traveling through the Canadian Maritime Provinces late May into June. I got your "handle" from Butch Binder on the Casita group on Facebook. We have a 17 foot Liberty Deluxe and are currently on our last year of four years full timing. I have gleaned a little information about traveling up in that area but am looking for more. I have read a little about the ferry going to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. I am thinking we may need to make reservations. One person even mentioned getting a bunk on one of the boats. I need to do a lot more research I can see. Any help you might be willing to give would be much appreciated. I am new to this site and forum so I am learning to negotiate but find it a bit confusing so far. I am glad I was able to find you. Thanks, Tim and Darlene

Tim,

If you send me your email address in a PM I'll send you our guide to NL.

There are staterooms on the ferry to NL. We've made 14 crossings and have never taken a stateroom. It's only a 6 hour crossing. When you send me your email address I'll send you all our info to allow you to more directly contact me.

Norm

There have been years we've gone to NL and not seen any and other years where they were every where. Hope this is the latter.
