I'd love to make this trip one day. My dad has been a few times over the years and I've heard stories. He also used to ride to Arizona (like twice) where my Grandma had a condo. I'm tossing the idea of a trip for 2015 from Halifax Nova scotia to Lake Havasu Arizona. 50519km, 50 hrs on google maps.

However I just googled Laconia and that is a mere 1000km (ten hour) drive for me....hmmmmmmm

Me and the missus are buying a house and that would be around 2-4 weeks after we closed...not sure how to pitch this one. Pennies are pre-pinched these days. Help me out. Spin this for me guys!

Oh man, so tempting. I am on leave that week to (shift working they tell me when to take it long in advance). But the missus may have had "summer new house" plans in her pretty lil brain box already. If I "made a stand" im sure she would be cool with it...but id get the "im disappointed in you" face for awhile hahaha

I need to make the trip appealing to her...like "lovers love harder in...NEW HAMPSHIRE" any slogans like that kicking around? lol

Well gee...would you look at that...my lack of american geopraphical knowledge BUT astute googling skills has revealed Boston -my favourite american port - is a mere 35 mins further than Laconia (on my rough google maps search). Just so happens the missus expressed wanting to go visit this year as I spoke highly of it and shes never been.

This thread is officially TO BE CONTINUED for me! thumb up


edit:
Wheres the best camping between boston and laconia? This knowledge will help.

Doable for sure though. From Hali google maps gave laconia 10hrs and Boston 10hrs 35 min...just did it again and got a completely different result. From here they are both almost the exact same distance. And only 130mi apart so....ya
If they get that ferry going back from nova scotia to maine that would help a ton.

We will be arriving on Friady the 13th, no Port Dover for me this year. Leaving on Mon June 16. Had a great time riding up Mount Washington last year and the Broken Spoke is right across from Pine Hollow campsite. I have a daughter in Halifax and will be visiting in August, love that place, Boon Docks restaurant.

Ya Halifax is a great little place. I'm from Welland Ontario (23 years out there) right next to niagara falls if you dont know. I could never live in southern ontario again...just too nice out here. Would you be riding out or flying out? If youre riding out keep me posted, we can go for a rip.

Spent a couple years living on the edge of the Wainfleet Bog in the Welland area working as my handle suggests. With the Niagara river there it was a very interesting place and the boat rides on the lower Niagara were interesting.
