Hi, I am Paul from just outside St. John's Newfoundland

Hi, folks.

I am Paul. And I live just outside St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. Our family just recently purchased a 1979 Trillium Jubilee trailer in fantastic shape. Other than putting electric brakes on it to help my tug its ready to go.

Check it out. We've had two lengthy road trips already and I swear the trailer moves closer to the edge of the driveway every time I get home. Can't wait to get on the road again.tried posting pictures but just can't iron the bugs out. Hope this link works in the interim.

Yessssss!!!!:-)

Wonderful Province

Paul, Welcome to the site. We just returned from Newfoundland, our 5th trip. NL is our favorite place to visit in North America. We spent a lot of time on the penisula this year, checking out the Cape Ray area using La Manche Provincial Park as a base park.

Over the year we've driven most NL roads except the road to Hermitage.

Safe travels

Hi, folks.

Thanks for your email. I read your posts in earnest when looking for a Trailer that we could tow with our present tug (Subaru Forester). Your travels and common sense advice did much to put our minds at ease. In fact, our search became one of what trailer could we find to match our tug vs considering having to upgrade vehicles.

NL is one of our favourite places, too, and not just because we live here. We're constantly exploring and we see more and more how special it is the more we travel outside of the province, and country. The pace is "just right" if you know what what I mean (and I think you do).

Just this weekend past we visited the Cape Race area. In fact, the whole southern shore of the Avalon is a frequent jaunt of ours. If you're ever back this way again be sure to let us know. To get to LaManche your have to pass us by.

Cheers.

Many thanks. Interestingly, I felt welcome long before I joined the site.

Kinda like knowing an all molded towable was for you even before you saw one in person... huh

Hi, and "Thank you", Donna D.

Yup. Feels just like it.

We've been unplugged for the last 12 days. We just got back from a 2200kms plus trip across the island. We poked our noses in a few of the places we haven't seen before all in an attempt to show our daughter some of the beautiful treasures we have here. The Jubilee towed "without a hitch" (LOL).

Wonderful family adventures and memories..... Hmmmm. Where to next?

Paul: -)

Great

Glad you had a great trip. What were the three best places you went, planning our next trip.

Hi, folks.

Barachois Pond Provincial Park just east of the Stevenville exit (~ 2 hours from the Port aux Basques ferry) was just beautiful. Probably the nicest park we have been in on the island. Book ahead if possible. They do have drop in sites but depending on the demand in prime time these sites are filled. (We used Barachois like you did LaManche in your recent travels.) On your drive from the ferry you'll pass by Codroy before you reach Stevenville. This was a must see for us. Scenic and serene and a great birding area. Burgeo was a picturesque drive but there's little to see along the way. If you're going, book at the Sandbanks Park well in advance. The beaches there are great if the weather holds. You can unhitch and travel in the coastal boat to several remote communities but beware to plan far ahead as there are only specific days to go and return and all the info is not in print. The Insectarium in Deer Lake was a real hit. If you're travelling through Corner Brook consider Blow Me Down Park and venture down the other side of the bay to Cox's Cove. We also did some off grid camping in Port Blandford spending a night in a farmer's field before exploring Musgravetown, Bunyon's Cove and Canning's Cove. Some tight spots on narrow roads make for tricky turnarounds.

Hermitage along the Coast of the Bays is a beautiful trip and one I would make again. While we didn't do it this trip, it is on the "To Do" trip list. The remote coastal villages accessible by boat from Burgeo are similarly accessible from Hermitage. Galtois and Maccallum are 2 areas that you can see in a day trip and are worth the visit. The vistas alone down and up the coast are breathtaking.

P:-)

Hi, folks.

Just back from our latest jaunt. We travelled to ~1.2 hrs to Duneville, Placentia where we purchased a family Salmon Licence at Woodman's Sport and Variety, a little hole in the wall worth the visit and chat in and of itself. From there we headed in the direction of Colinet. We set up camp on a gravel road ~ 18 km outside the community of Colinet adjacent to the South East River. We boated and fished the area without significant luck. However, Cataracts Provincial Park was worth the visit as was the visit to the Rocky River Fish Ladder. However, the best visits were to Cape St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary and the day trip along the coast to such places as North Harbour, Branch, and many more picturesque coastal communities.

Home early to beat the heavy rains forecast for the island for the next 48 hrs. Batten down the hatches!!!!

:-)

Paul,

We haven't been to Colinet but I understand it's worth visiting for the Catatacts. Were they worth the visit? Do you have a picture?

So much to do and see. Thanks for adding to our NL List.

Hi, folks.

Cataracts gorge is a short, drop in visit only. Unfortunately, no pictures of note to do the gorge justice. Catherine stopped to use the park facilities (pit outhouse) and was stung by several hornets. Needless to say we were a little distracted afterwards. If you are in the area its worth the 15-20 minutes to see it. FYI: Its a long way to travel just to see the gorge.

Paul, We're planning a trip for next year, our 50th wedding anniversary.

For us Newfoundland is never too far. We find every road interesting, there always seem to be something new to find or that finds us. Plaanning the start of the tip to coincide with the Norris Point music festival.
