Exploring the Maritimes

July, 2019

Our First Boondocking Trip!

Duration: 29 days, 28 nights

Provinces: NB, NS, NL, QC

Kilometres Travelled: ~12,000



To stay in a recreational vehicle in a remote location, without connections to water, power, or sewer services.

I have to say I was skeptical at first about travelling this way, but what a wonderful discovery!  Nothing comes close to watching the sunset every evening, and the sunrise every morning.   We used apps such as iOverlander, freecampsites.net and park4night to find our location.  The map below shows where we settled each evening.
