    Question Atlantic Provinces

    I am planning a trip for this summer from Cincinnati to the Canadian Atlantic Provinces. Does anyone know of good reference materials for routes, places to visit, etc. or if someone has personal experience with this trip I would appreciate any information or advice offered.

    Where are you going? What are you riding? What are you interested in? How long do you have to travel?

    Welcome to the Forum.

    Can you give us an idea of when you plan on being here? The BMW Owners of Nova Scotia (BMWONS) is celebrating our 40th Anniversary in 2018 and as such we will have a few additional events planned, perhaps some might coincide with your visit.

    If it is right after the MOA Rally in Des Moines, there'll be a group of us riding back to Nova Scotia.

    As Steve mentioned, if you can give us an idea of all of these things, we can certainly assist, including sending you one or two POI files I've created if you're using a GPS and it will accept the Garmin type POI files (GPI).

    Can't argue with you there. Has it been a long winter in Central Illinois?

    Other than Anne of Green Gables, I'm not aware of the rest have any connection to the Atlantic Provinces.

    Thanks Kurt, that would clean things up.

    Skibum69, there's a meet up being planned in the Rally Beer Garden section of this forum. You could also PM me or Codfather to arrange something.

    A group of us are booked into the Hampton Inn & Suites, Ankeny.

    That must be my excuse, long winter. It is finally sunny middle 70's today went for ride on 78/7 will have to figure out how to soften up new suspension.
    I thought Alison krauss was Canadian, I was wrong she is from Champaign, Illinois in the early 70's we were both doing time there, she lived there I had a choice between Vietnam or the University of Illinois.
    I may be wrong but original poster could read the salty fog rides stuff I think that was on Atlantic coast.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Once I can tell you have been back on to have a peek at the suggestions, I'll move this thread to the Ride Reposts section.
    Have a good trip.

    No problem, but we'll tade you Celine Dion for Alison Krauss any day of the week. ;-) Alison has a far better personality, etc., etc., etc.

    Late 60's early 70's explains a lot, I made it through that era, despite doing my darndest tempting fate way too often.
