Well fellows, this Friday, 03 July, I set out with my roadster pickup on the Canadian Hotrod Tour. Its being organized by Canadian Rodder, a web based club that originates in Unionville, Ontario which is near Toronto. I believe that currently there are about 85 hotrods registered to go. The $100 fee to join covers the cost of a tow/service vehicle which will accompany us, and the administration to set up hotels, meetings with other clubs on the way down, etcetera. The first leg of the trip leaves Whitby, Ontario (near Toronto) at 8:00 Friday morning, and travels to out nations capital, Ottawa, where we spend the first night (about 300 miles). On the way to Ottawa, we pass thru the town of Perth, where I will pick up my old hot rod buddy Doug, who will travel with me. Next day we drive to the far side of Quebec province to a city called Riviere Du Loup to spend the night. Next day takes us to Miramichi, New Brunswick. The day after that we drive to and accross the new 26 Kilometer long Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island and stay overnite in Charlottetown, PEI. Next day we drive to North Sydney, Nova Scotia. The following day we drive around the entire Cabot Trail and stay in North Sydney again that night. On day #7 we drive from North Sydney Nova Scotia to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Day 8 we drive to Moncton, New brunswick and spend 2 days at the Nationals. On day 10 we cross into USA and drive from Moncton to Bangor, Maine. Day 11 takes us to Plattsburgh, New York, and day 12 takes us from Plattsburgh back to Cornwall in eastern Ontario. I will stay overnight at my buddies place in Perth, Ontario, and then home to Barrie the next day (or if I'm not too tired, I will travel north to Bancroft to see my 89 year old mother before continuing on home). I checked it out on Mapquest, and it looks like 2500 miles, round trip.---wish me luck.
