The trick is improvising clamps.

I wish I were coming along as was originally planned, I would love to compare notes with the master of improvisations. All the best along the way, Norm!

Paul, When it's the trailer door or the bed you have to find a way. The water heater not so much. Ginny's willing, happily willing to heat water on the stove but not willing to sleep apart.

T-Mobile works.
So far our new phone has done everything, working smoothly. Better reception than Ginny's Verizon.

The T-Mobile has shown a movie while serving as a Wi-Fi hot spot for our other devices, Ginny's phone, her pad/kindle, and our computers. It also has the ability to mirror it's screen to a TV.

To this point up the east coast and thru two provinces it's work as well as any phone/network I've owned.

The phone is a Samsung Note 5. Extremely powerful and capable of producing virtual reality with appropriate equipment. With Virtual Reality you feel your actually in the middle of the scene.

It should be of interest for those with a lot of cross border travel.

Bad News.
Every year we come to NL we get a rider to our phone that allows calls to the states. Verizon still sells the package for Canada but provides no coverage in NL.

Many moons go we took the Blue Nose to NFL and drove north far as the unpaved road let us, to an amazing lobster trapping village. Hope you can post a few pictures along that route.

It was 1974. We debarked at Port aux Basques and took Canadian #1 north to Deer Lake where we must have turned onto route 430 going up the coast to probably Rocky Harbor where I think these pictures were taken.

Oh, you Kodachrome, you king of the maritimes, you coastal prince of the Canadian outer banks, still fresh and bright after all these years...

Ah, Rocky Harbour! Get fish and lobster and head north to camp at Green Point and cook your dinner on a fire overlooking the ocean. Campgrounds almost empty but you may need to shovel snow depending on your choice of campsites.

Didn't have time or a camper for 2016's trip but I am definitely interested in 2017! Looking at a September pickup date for my Lilsnoozy!
Just have to make sure my tug is in good enough shape for a 2 month trip! (And that the 3 yard kitties know how to use a litter box snd won't fuss at my House kitties )

Verizon phone service. Every year we get a rider for our phone service in Canada and we did this year. The rider worked in NB but does not work in NL. I called verizon global support and they said they provide no coverage in NL except for St. John's. I dropped the coverage. My T-Mobile works fine.
