Sounds like you had a good time. We're going back next year for the May music festival in Norris Point and to visit a few places we missed over the years.

We did go out to Twillingate. From there you can almost see the Fogo Islands. The locals told us to hop the ferry and get there for a week or two. Next year.

Glad you had a good time.

If you're travelling south along the coast, consider driving down the NC Outer Banks. From VA, you could take the Knotts Island / Currituck ferry (free) then down to Nags Head (lots of history) where you'd pick up Hwy 12 to Hatteras Village (don't miss the Hatteras Lighthouse which is actually in Buxton). Also before Hatteras is the Frisco NPS campground (closes 10/14) P60 is best campsite on NC coast. Take ferry (free) to Ocracoke (see thread on this forum) and maybe meet others on the board who plan to be there at various times between 10/14 & 10/28. From Ocracoke, take Cedar Island ferry ($30) and continue down the coast to Wilmington. Carolina Beach SP is a nice place to stay and its a neat area. One last ferry in NC at Southport ($10).

Continue along the coast to SC/Ga. Huntington Beach, Hunting Island and Edisto Beach SPs are all good in SC as is Stephen C Foster SP in GA.

The Picacho Peak state campground on the west side of the Colorado river, due north of Yuma Arizona (in the California desert). This is NOT the Picacho Peak AZ park!!!

In the Desert, Picacho Peak, California, Picacho Gold Mine, Map.

This is my home turf, and the desert there is stunning. But you want to make sure you are not there between May and Sept as the heat can be scorching in the summer. I was just there this past Christmas, when I took my son home to explore where I grew up. Needless to say, he loved it.

At the end of the Picacho road there is a campground on the river where you can base for a day or two exploring the desert around the park. AFAIK there are NO facilities, no electricity / sewer, not even water, although the river is right there. Lends a whole new meaning to "boon docking"!

Expect to see desert tortoise, burros (gone wild from the old miner days), deer, rattlesnakes and roadrunners, tarantulas and scorpions. I even saw a badger once. Barrel cactus, ocotillo, and creosote bush, mesquite trees and ironwood are native to the area - ironwood is so dense that it won't float. To see the wildlife, walk at sunrise and sunset as that is when the desert springs to life.

I am partial to the Great Lakes region. Have you ever spent time exploring the area around Lakes Michigan, Superior, and Huron? The shorelines have many nice vistas, charming towns, and points of interest. Many places with waterfalls. Plenty of lighthouses, too. Of course, the best time to visit this area is from June through early October, so perhaps it's something you could do after Newfoundland.

We have driven both sides of the great lakes over the years. We find just about everywhere we go has it's wonders. There is a community in OR with a population of 1000 that we have visited 7 times, yet we always find something new.

Life on the road is wonderful.

When I do x-country trips, I try to come up with a theme. One year it was favorite movie settings around the country to visit. There may have been only 3 or 4, but linked a route together and found other interesting places to visit too along the way.

I'm a firm believer in Roadside America Roadside America - Guide to Uniquely Odd Tourist Attractions

You can search by route, state, or theme, for things to tickle your brain or your funny bone.

Would NEVER have found Fish Head Park in Michigan without Roadside America! Now, I need to make a trip to see the "Naughty Cows" in the UP!

So MUCH to see, so little time!

I hope you're aware of the oil boom mess around Williston, ND (US 2). Caught us unawares two years ago and had to stay in Camp Walmart which they no longer allow you to stay because so many oil workers were "living" there.
