    Nova Scotia / New Brunswick Canada!! I'm here!

    Hey guys, so I'm on a trip and I'm traveling through Nova Scotia and New Brunswick back to the United States, this is sort of one of those trips where I went to see my best friend get married and now I have time to travel, but I'm basically going to be living out of my tent and my car on the way home.

    This is me sort of reaching out to see if anybody is interested in getting together to geek out on some film photography, I'm a large-format shooter as well as medium format and regular old tiny format film too.

    I also would be interested very much so in having places to maybe take a shower and clean up a little bit, I brought enough clothes to basically make it all the way without having to do any kind of serious laundry or anything, but it certainly would be nice to have a shower every now and then. Even better would be a couch to crash on, but I won't push my luck

    Thanks everyone! Hope to maybe meet a few Canadian APUGers!

    I'll be up here basically August 1st-15th making my way from Nova Scotia, up and over through New Brunswick and down to Maine.

    I tried to put this in the "Canada" forum but it wouldn't let me set up a Nova Scotia or New Brunswick forum head, and the other selections weren't geographically correct. Feel free to do your moderator magic! Maybe we need a "travel notice" forum

    Let me know!

    canadian nights might be cold , get your best sleeping bag. Good luck and bring toilet paper with you And talc An gas oven and canned food not beans If you eat hot food , you find the comfort or whatever you eat cold , your hunger would not cut. Take lots of socls , underwear and deodorant. I hope your car is new. Very long road and its better with a friend and it is safer.

    Best of luck , dont stop at the middle of the road to take a picture or other car crashes to your car. Dont forget pain killers.

    Thanks for the warning Stone .

    Hope you enjoy the Maritimes. I've always wanted to visit there, but have never been able to do so. It is, after all, over 2600 miles away (about 200 miles farther than New York would be).

    And Umut, the weather forecasts for this week for Frederickton, New Brunswick and Istanbul, Turkey are as follows:

    Frederickton: highs vary between 24C and 28C
    Istanbul: highs vary between 25C and 28C

    Cold?

    I thought the whole point of camping was to get 'away' from it all [especially internet...]

    enjoy the trip, and I hope you don't read this till you get back

    I remember a Kids in the Hall episode where the one guy said heterosexuals know as much about homosexuals as Americans know about Canada - like showing up in July with skis.
