    Scudrunner is a term used by pilots dodging fog and clouds etc.

    Welcome from Newfoundland where a couple of friends of mine are scud runners.

    You nailed it. I made a few freight runs into Halifax. Never made it to Newfoundland. My wife is from Calgary where we got married 30+ years ago. Sheís never been East of Montreal. We plan to visit the Maritimes when we retire.

    Why would you wait until you retire? If you're only going to the Maritimes you won't get to Newfoundland seeing as it's in the Atlantic provinces. We're planning on opening a B&B for touring motorcycles.
