To Florida for Christmas. 

The latter weeks of November we made our way slowly through the lower states hitting National Parks and more historic sites along the way. But before that, we would return to D.C. and use our bikes with baby carriers in tow to see he sites of the National Mall. We saw Marine One fly by and Mike Pence walked right by us in the Capitol Building. Pretty Neat. Leaving D.C. the path south has much civil war and American history so I was excited to hit those spots, like Monticello, the Shenandoah Mountains and the Appomattox. 
We hugged the Appalachian Mountains with the intent of me being able to climb Mt. Mitchell in North Carolina. Wild fires prevented that from happening and nearly cancelled our whole mountain experience in that area.

Heading due south.

Last time we did a general update was when we crossed over to Newfoundland, deciding to forgo the northern route through Labrador to save time. The weather was getting colder and we could not chance being stuck in minus temperatures.

We spent 2 weeks in Newfoundland, crossing it to the north, then east, then back to the west,

It was cold but beautiful. This was our third time back to “The Rock” and I just couldnt get enough. Last time I, Luke, did it on my own by motorcycle in a bit of a rush. This time I could explore it in more detail with the family.

More Housekeeping…

We’ve added a map of the places we’ve been. Really, it’s just the towns we’ve parked in and slept. #HomeIsWhereYouParkIt. Scroll down to the the bottom of this site, and the map is there, just under our Instagram feed.

We’ve also added a day by day information page… Just places we’ve been and what we did in very. short. form. Click on the “Today we are in…” link at the top of the site and it will take you to the day by day page. We’ll try to keep each day updated, as well as each day’s current location in the link.

When you’re in Newfoundland, you’re home.

We decided to forgo Larbador.

I was looking forward to seeing that part of the province in a car instead of on two wheels because I could take in the view a little more. Also I wanted to share the experience with Cynthia. In the end the conditions were not ideal. It has rained along the most dangerous part of the slick gravel road for days, and would be raining for several days more. This, grouped with so many miles of washboard gravel roads with the trailer and potential breakdown, solidified the decision to go by way of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
We drove for most of the days leading up to yesterday, and then made our way over on the ferry. Just under $500 got us all passage as well as our rig. With the savings in gas by not doing Labrador, it wasn’t that bad on the wallet.
