Road Trip Preparation

I’m almost all prepared for my trip out to the Maritimes this coming weekend. I have purchased a Swiss army knife, a saw, a raincoat, a tarp, a tent, saddlebags (for my dirt bike), granola bars, dried fruit and power bars. I have ordered new tires for my dirt bike, and I still need to change the oil in it.

I’m very excited for this trip, and I think I’m going to check out Nova Scotia, PEI, and New Brunswick if time permits. I still need to map out somewhere to set up camp on my first night of traveling. It will be Saturday, September 11th, and I will probably leave around 8AM in the morning, and most likely ride until around 5PM. I will probably be somewhere in Quebec by that time, my buttocks will probably be severely sore, and I will be looking for a place to relax.

I plan to arrive in Nova Scotia on Sunday, September 12th, at which time I’ll be looking for another campsite or hostel. I will then spend the entire week traveling around the Maritimes provinces, taking as many pictures as I can. I hear the scenery is magnificent.

This trip should give me time to think about life, read some books, take some pictures, meet some people and it should be quite an adventure. If the dirt bike doesn’t make it, I may need to try to sell it and hitchhike my way home, or catch a plane or a train.

Hopefully upon my return I shall have some good stories to write on here. I’ll keep you posted (literally).
