You both look like a great couple, always cool when the missus likes the same hobbies as you. And the snacks are the reward for the journey, But methinks you are just missing a dog to join along.

Also like the steelies- very retro cool. Tell us a bit about the roof rack setup?

I am very lucky! The Misses and i use too do a lot of rough camping in the white mountains in new England when we first met. We would camp out for days and rough it out in the woods with enough gear to to survive. We want to get back to that.

The cross members of the rack i got at princes auto (something like harbor freight here in Canada). It is a Van ladder rack . I chose that style because they are gutter mounted. Easy on and easy off. I store my high lift jack there. Other than a little rattle from the foot of the jack, the wind noise is minimal. The roof basket i got on kijiji second hand.

The steelies are from Costco but i also got them off someone on kijiji. The rubbers are kick backs from my dodge ram. That is why i only have 4 :giggle:

Now the dog....



We do have a dog, a German Shepard named Henri. He may come with us the next trip. He gets very excited too come in the vehicles with us but then cries and whines the entire time:lipssealed:.



Does not make for a relaxing ride.... he is getting better though....

Well, Felina took us out for our second adventure today!

She took us down to Johnson's point to see the ocean.... what a nice drive. The road was closed but proved to be little challenge to Felina!

Twas nothing but ice and slush!!!.... and cold!
20191230_132607.jpg

But so pretty!

Wouldn't want to have fallen in though!

Across the water was this little cottage... lucky people!
20191230_134122.jpg

We then headed inland for some forest trails.

We figured we'd follow Coburg road to come out to route 940

We even found a future camping site!

...BUT....!!! We got half way and discovered that there was a major obstacle!!??!

THE BRIDGE WAS OUT!
20191230_145340.jpg


So we backtracked and decided to go up to Jolicure road and come out further up on route 940.

We even came across a beaver trap. But elisa was having none of it...:CWL:

We eventually made our way home to our kids, Henri the dog and a nice warm fire.

It looks like you made a MAJOR mistake when you let your wife drive. Don't see you behind the wheel, anymore!
