Sounds like I would like NL. They sure are a long drive though. Have you been to New Brunswick or Nova Scotia? If so, how do they compare for scenery and rural peace & quiet?

We have been to all the provinces and the maritime provinces many times. We like all of them and they get progressively more rural. This summer we went to PEI. The largest city was about 35,000 and the second largest about 15,000, mostly rural farmland.

Newfoundland is a sonderful place with very friendly people. It really has only two cities, St Johns and Cornerbrook. People on the south coast of Labrador would drive 200 miles one way once a month to shop in Cornerbrook. They could only do this for 5-6 months a year when the ferry could run between Newfoundland and Labrador.

Both Labrador and Newfoundland are more like rural Alaska. We enjoy all the eastern seaboard provinces but love Newfound wildly for a number of reasons.

If you go to Newfoundland it is a two month place. It's 700 miles from our home in NH to the ferry terminal in North Sydney. Though a long drive it's a lot of fun as well.

Gas Stations and dump stations

For Gas stations we wrote to the Newfoundland Tourist Organization and asked them for a list of Labrador gas sations. They sent us a list of every gas station in order across Labrador with the owners name, address and phone numbers.

Gas never turned out to be an issue. We would fill up before any serious drive and refill at the end. Gas was expensive in Labrador. The highest was $5.68 a US Gallon. Fortunately we get great mileage.

We stayed in a bunch of RV parks in Labrador and on a couple of occasions plugged into hotels $10. Two of the RV parks were former provincal parks. Once we plugged in at a skating rink. On the Highway there were pull over areas (nothing like our rest areas, just wide spots where you could spend the night. I recall the big cities (LOL) had places where you could dump. I believe the Tourist group also sent me a list of dump stations...

If you like rural, Labrador is great...
