Greetings all. My wife and I have just returned from a two week road trip through New Hampshire, Maine, New Brunswick and Quebec in our partly refurbished Boler
. Our plan was to visit Mount Washington, Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, drive the coastline along the Bay of Fundy, see the Hopewell Rocks at both high and low tide, drive around the Gaspe peninsula and finally spend a few days walking Quebec City before heading home. Mission accomplished, 4500 kilometres and the 32 year old Boler
made it in one piece.
Our tow vehicle is a 2012 Dodge Journey, AWD, V6, 6 speed auto. It pulled the Boler
and all of our stuff with relative ease. The extra weight
only noticeable on very steep grades. At the end of two weeks our fuel consumption averaged 11.7 l/100 km which is roughly 20 mpg. When not towing I usually average about 10.2 l/100km or 23 mpg.
We spent a couple of days in New Hampshire camping at Timberland Campground near Gorham. The park was clean, quiet, well maintained and close to Mount Washington, White Mountain National Forest and it's assorted trails and sights.

After that it was off to Maine to see Bar Harbor and Acadia National park for sight seeing, hiking and cycling the carriage roads in Acadia. We spent several nights at Mt. Desert Campground located on Somes Sound. Once again the park was clean and quiet. They have a bunch of sites right on the waters edge but due to the terrain are only good for tents. The remaining sites are small and for the most part very private. The sign at the park entrance says no campers larger than 20 feet. I did see a Scamp
there but never did encounter the owners.

On the road again with a one night stop over at Sugarloaf Provincial Park in New Brunswick.
Next up was a three night stay in Fundy National Park. Here we biked, hiked, drove the coast up to Cape Enarge and two separate trips to the Hopewell Rocks to see the tides at high and low.
