Labrador and Newfoundland

We are planning to visit the Northeast this summer, driving up past Quebec City, Labrador City, and Goose Bay to Red Bay. From there we plan on taking the ferry to Newfoundland. If any New Horizons owners are interested in tagging along, let us know. You can post a reply here or send an email to meisman2@gmail.com.

Mike here is a trip that I use to take people on up in that area.
On route #5 at base of Kelly's mountain there is a KOA that we use to stay at for people that were going to take ferry out of Sidney to Newfoundland.
Have a great trip wish I could join you but health problems think not.
Its a beautiful area and allot to see in couple days travel.

We did the ferry out of Nova Scotia to Newfoundland. We camped next to a Dodge 3500 4x4, jacked up, big tires, beefed suspension with a large pickup camper on it. He had obviously done his homework before making the trip. I asked him about going over to Labrador with my fiver and coming back down that highway. His eyes got quite large, looked my rig and said "no way - - don't even think about it." He said it
was fine with his setup, but would never try and drag a trailer up that highway. Mostly dirt, lots of washouts in the wrong time of the year, tough on the equipment. I think the previous poster has it right. Spend your time in Newfoundland on the west side - - much more to see and a lot less wear on equipment. Remember, I only
quoting what I was told - - not personal experience on the Lab side, only the Newfoundland side - - and it was wonderful.
