Today was a driving day. Time to head north to Cape Breton. As soon as we arrived, we decided to scout for a boondocking site on Crown Land.
This evening we arrived safe and sound (although a bit wet) on the south shore of Nova Scotia. Graves Island Provincial Park to be exact.
On this beautiful Sunday afternoon, we took Frank’s advice and kept going after reaching the always lovely (and popular!) Warren transfer station. We encountered some fairly gnarly roads, a couple of low creek crossings, saw several great potential camp spots, and enjoyed an incredibly beautiful lake.
… or how to take a break after work, but before dinner.
Drink ‘er in, folks. It’s a 700 lbs. bed on wheels covered in aluminum. Excited!
Ruby Jean seemed proud to take us voting even though she was surrounded by enemy signs…
Even for our little town, turnout was significant.
This afternoon we took the dogs up Beebe River Road to that wonderful meadow. Fletcher practiced his superior frisbee skills and fun was had by all.
While exploring Sandwich Notch Rd in Sweet Ruby Jean today, we found a fantastic off-the-map road that takes you to one of the coolest potential primitive camping sites we’ve seen.
As fall begins, we’re starting to explore the Beebe river in Campton. Eastern Corner road is one of several ways to get there, and there are numerous opportunities for hiking and XC skiing. The road in is pretty rough, so it also offers some light (but fun!) jeeping.
