I'm originally from St. John's and have been itching for a good excuse to drive home so this would be the perfect end to a perfect trip.
Anyone interested...you can add a cool 15 hr ferry ride seeing all kinds of whales & dolphins and if early enough ice bergs as well and then once off the ferry it's a couple of hour drive to St. john's and the most easterly point in North America Cape Speer.
There is George street which is like New Orleans on a good night..lol..., boats, tours, fishing, parks, sea food, hundreds of years of history and some of the best people on the planet (they were actually home to thousands of people worldwide during 911)
If this comes to fruition, anyone looking for information on a trip extension to the rock (Newfoundland) can contact me directly and I can provide all the info you need to get too and from the island as I've completed this leg many times.
Thus far I agree with everything including Niagara but I would opt for a drive through Toronto (could probably get a national spot on breakfast television which covers these sorts of events) time in Ottawa as it's a beautiful spot, not so much in Montreal as I think it's more for the younger crowd, time in Quebec city as it's magnificant, The Bay of Fundy is a must as they have restaurants overlooking the harbour with the freshest seafood you have ever had and you can watch the tide go in and out from there and Halifax is a great spot and where they buried the Titanic victims......
I've probably spewed way too much already, but I think this would make one of the best Shelby events in history
Great idea Randy! I've never been to Newfoundland but from the pictures I've seen and based on what I've heard from those I know who went there, this would be a very good reason for me to extend the trip!
