We are off to Newfoundland so tag-along with us.

Four Wheeling in Booneyville NB

Monday, May 30, 2011

Allen had been to town for gas and had the 4 wheeler filled with gas and ready to go by 8:00 a.m.  This man barely could make ends meet and yet he spent some of his precious money on gas to make sure we could experience this together.  We even told him we had a can of gas in the truck, but would not hear of it.  That is how awesome these Easterners are.  They would give you the shirt off their back if it would help you.  So off we go, camera in hand to experience the backcountry of New Brunswick. Remember I said they had a wet spring just like we did.  Not even 5 minutes into the trip we came to puddles the size of small lakes, 

We forged creeks and crossed old log bridges ...oh my, I was sure hoping this thing didn’t stall out in the middle of one of those puddles!  The black flies would have our bones picked clean before anyone could get back to rescue us!  Doug did a great job getting us through all the little rivers and mud holes, up and down and all around, it was actually amazing.  I Loved it!  Gotta get us one of these "Wheelers"!!!

We ended up back at a covered bridge  
over a great looking stream (should have our fishing poles) Also back here was Bill’s kitchen complete with pots, pans, cooking utensils and lights that you could hook up to a battery.

We signed the guest book, 

enjoyed the serenity for a few minutes

and decided we should leave before the blackflies told all of their friends about the fresh Ontario blood.

I can remember as a kid having red Trilliums in the bush behind our house.  I have been trying to find a red Trillium for a couple of years now, and finally, way back in the middle of nowhere New Brunswick there they were. We were gone for well over an hour and enjoyed every minute of it, blackflies and all. 

We enjoyed a nice Ham and egg breakfast when we got back, hauled Elbroko out of the ruts we made on the lawn, said our goodbyes and headed for Moncton NB around noon.  

Tonight we stayed in a real campground with hydro, water and sewer hookups, Pine Ridge Campground, 12 miles north of Moncton.  

Don't Be a Stranger!
