East coast trip!

Hey just got back from a long road trip with stops in Quebec, New Brunswick, PEI, Cape Breton and Halifax NS. All in 6 days and a straight drive back from Halifax to Toronto to get home. thought I'd post a few picks to share.

Driving through Quebec we came across this town, there were other great named towns like Musquodobiot or something but this one was a real winner

One of the best parts of the trip was were I stayed in PEI. partly cause the weather was good and the view

That was the view from my tent, almost as good as the beach

I ran all over town to get HID's and a new headlight cuz the day before I left a cop car passed em on the shoulder and a rock flew up breaking my old one. I didn't end up turning my lights on until about Quebec city on the way home and I wsa doing up to 8 hours driving a day up till the last day when I drove all the way home with a few food stops.

To anyone thinking about making a similar trip to this, New brunswick was the downer if there wsa one and stock up on the beer before you leave Quebec, your wallet will thank you! a

last is most people favorite part of the coast

I don't think I've ever seen a sub before, other than the ones in the West Edmonton mall.

The east coat is a great place to visit. I've been to Halifax a few times, awesome city, and super friendly people. We're you able to use those headlights you picked up off me?

yeah, I picked up the lights and went straight home and put them in. thanks again so much!. thanks spike for the HID's also, they look great and work way better then what I had.

I already did the west coast and now I can say my car with 550,000km on it has been to both coasts!

also again anyone doing this trip like Tyson or Martin, try to squeeze PEI into your trip. It'll cost you ~$65 to get the ferry out to NS but there is a camp site near the ferry that if you can get a site near the water (spots 23-25 are amazing) you can sit back to a fire pit on the coast. the campground is the North Humberland Provincial Park. Also any of you who are going to cape Breton, there is a road you can take to shortcut across to get there instead of taking the trans Canada over then up, DON'T DO IT! unless your driving a truck. I took it and my car was taking a pounding. plus there is a 3k stretch of unpaved loose gravel.

Nice pics, I wanted to get to P.E.I. but just didn't make it.

Halifax is an awesome city...just left there last night and currently in Moncton (I don't recommend this city).
I've been down here for 2 weeks now and just starting to head back, got to see so much more this time, it was a great trip.

Ah common Moncton isnt a bad place to live I have been here all my life.Best part about the maritimes is that we dont have emission laws so you can build what you want and dont have to worry about E testing.Theft is also something that we dont worry about here very rarely do you ever hear about a car getting stolen and never modified ones however Halifax is a different story.

Moncton (and surrounding area) is the best place in the maritime's, you just need to know where to go. You probably did some ish like go to magnetic hill or see the tidal bore. Moncton is a summer city ment for drinking and nailing cute french chicks.
