Maritime mini runs.

Have not posted a mini run for a bit. We went up from Digby on all older roads starting with number 1 route in Valley, Rawdon Hills to Truro then on number 2 and 4 past Oxford to the number 6 at Pugwash and down to New Glasgow. Stayed the night and left for Antigonish in the morning to start the number 7. Whole idea was to do our first run on the number 7 starting at the other end. This way we avoid 2.5 hours getting to and from the 7 in one day from home. The roads (6 and 7) were actually in good shape. Planned a couple of spots to stop. Look forward to some spots others go to. Here are a couple I found interesting. Street view links in titles.

Silo 15 minutes west of Tatamagouche on Route 6. 10 minutes past our gas stop in the last run we did.

I did a run too this weekend.
Only it wasn’t in a Mustang.
It involved my truck and a U-Haul trailer.
Left yesterdsy morning to pick up my daughter from University of Montreal Vet School in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec.
She did a year long practicim to specialize in emergency medecin.
Back today. Unloaded and trailer returned already.
Was hot there too.

Pic taken at rest stop east of Quebec this afternoon.

Well I can confirm that the Fundy trail is Mustang friendly now.
Drove it today and the chip seal is all compacted and safe.
No loose rocks anymore.

Although I would still avoid the 114 from Fundy to Riverview/Moncton.
Still some construction zones and a couple close to Riverview had loose gravel, potholed and downhill in and uphill out.
Not good.
Too bad, cause the ones further down were Mustang friendly.
Alternating traffic but paved.

They had a lot of water damage all along that highway since last year.

Drove it in the Edge ST.
Goes good in those back road twisties and hills.
