    I just looked up a couple of the provincial parks for tenting in July. Just about everything is completely sold out! Time to start thinking of Plan B, ie a new summer hobby!

    Wow. Is tent camping allowed now (or is this in anticipation of rules being relaxed)?
    Just weekends booked up or through the week as well?

    I think tenting is allowed in level 2, which starts June 25th. I checked many many dates throughout the month and most seem booked up. I think people are taking the staycation more seriously now.

    Guerrilla camping it is! Especially if I go for a 3 day ride.

    Weekends are getting booked up... I'm going to start looking at week days in Aug. Should be off the project work by Aug. 6th.
    It's a little harder to stealth camp with a heavy bike hauling a trailer lol.

    Stealth is not required. There are lots of places around the island that you can pull your trailer into a small town and set up. The only thing is you have to be prepared for no shower/washroom. We spent one night last year in Rattling Brook where there is a cookhouse and tenting platforms right on the ocean. They want you to come and see and I assume C-19 won't change that.

    I have to discover more of the non-provincial camping... Rattling Brook is on my list.

    Chance Cove Park on the Southern Shore is a non maintained park (ie free). I believe it was a Provincial Park at one time. A nice spot if you are not afraid of ghosts!

    JLambo and I camped at Chance Cove. Lovely spot and is also a good surf break. Ride up over the hill from the parking lot to pick a spot.

    I'm heading out July 8-16. Tent,sleeping bag.and spork..and new rear tire.
    I may head to Labrador or whichever way the weather looks reasonable.
    I'll pitch my tent just about anywhere.

    No real idea where I am heading. Only have a week. I may make a b line to Labrador. Not sure how far I can get on pavement in the bigland from the ferry. There is tons of great places to visit at home. Places I have not explored yet.
    $20 is $20 bucks!

    Now instead of a 3 day ride I think it will only be a full day out, thinking of checking out Burgoynes Cove.

    Be sure to check out the plane wreck.

    You ever ride across from Burgoynes Cove to the Bonavista Hwy via the Ocean Pond dirt road Mike?

    Nope, I need to check that out but the 1100 is not the right machine for it.
