I arrived here in Riviere du Loup around 1:30 PM. It was about a 3-1/2 hour drive from Saint-Raymond, mainly because it was snowing the whole way. We're staying at a very nice hotel called the Hotel Universel. Really nice inside. Accommodations are very roomy and nice. The tour guide, Gary Pruitt, hasn't arrived yet. This place is really set up big time for motoneiges (snowmobiles). They have a fenced in lot for your truck and trailer and garages for your snowmachines. The truck and trailer will stay here for the 6 days we'll be touring the Gaspesie.
I talked with 3 guys from the Toronto area and they just finished touring the Gaspe Peninsula and said it was fantastic. They said the scenery is unbelievable, better than their home province of Ontario!! I'm all settled in here and after talking to those guys, I'm really excited to ride tomorrow. They're calling for 3-5" of snow tonight and 3-5 tomorrow. Tomorrow we ride about 200 miles to Matane. Yahoo!!
I worked over 40 years with the dream that some day I would have the chance to enjoy the freedom of retirement at a relatively early age. I was fortunate enough to achieve it in 2005. God Bless America!
Many of the states I've visited and three countries (Korea, Fiji and Mexico) I was fortunate enough to visit on business related trips (mostly for entertainment!).
I'm going to start these blogs with my trip of a lifetime, my road trip to Alaska and back.
