The Miss'and I decided we were going to take an overnighter to a little spot we had found:rock:.... just of the main path, next to a brook..... so we loaded up the jeep and took off!

5 minutes out, we found out there was a fire ban:surprised:....

So we called our girls, asked them if they wanted to go for a drive and we were turned down....:crying:

So we said "Nuts to that... let's go ourselves!" So we changed our plans and headed to Martin Head...I hadn't been there in 25 years and the Miss' had never been.

So we drove following the GPS and wound up NOT there. :facepalm:

But, we did find a couple of nice spots for future camping:like:...
The first spot was pretty... but no water near it...

So we drove down this dirt road, met some lady that had a camp there and she directed us towards our destination...

We found a nice little spot and because we had been driving for hours and didn't want to waste the day... we decided to set up camp for the night....

Next morning, we packed up and headed towards Martin Head...2 hours later, we arrived.:whew: Had to drive in first gear the whole way... road was rocky and steep in some places. Some spots on the return, first gear in low to get up the rocky hills....

We again followed the GPS and it brought us to a covered bridge...... which was too small for the jeep to fit through. :swear:

We backtracked and finally found our way home... drove through Fundy provincial park and followed the coast back home...

Looks like a great time.
I'm planing a trip camping around the US visiting friends this summer. It'll be the first camping for our 6 year old daughter which I'm really excited for.
