Day 17: Home (almost) Time

Posted by admin on September 10, 2013 in 2013 Cup Run |
Farewell cathy, you were a good aerostar. We shall see you again on the west coast next summer

Home time. Luckily, we had an afternoon flight because after yesterday, we weren’t exactly swift. Everything was packed up and stuffed into suitcases. Anything that didn’t fit, was “donated” to the van. We then said our goodbyes and headed to the airport, and ultimately, home.

Farewell cathy, you were a good aerostar. We shall see you again on the west coast next summer

They order beer by the palette

Bright and early, we were up and rolling to MUN. At about 9:20 am, us and two hundred MUN engineering students piled onto party buses on our to the middle of nowhere Newfoundland. They call it D-Day. The exact origins are milady questionable. But it is an event that has been happening every term for […]

Full service mobile haircuts!

After a good night’s sleep, we were up and rolling. First, we stopped at the Newfoundland equivalent of ICBC to sort vehicle registration and to figure out how we were supposed to sell the van to our Newfoundlander friends. Luckily, this didn’t take too long. Mr. David hadn’t shaved in a very long time and […]

It's really quite straight forward

Despite only following one highway for the whole trip, a significant amount of navigating was needed. This was the co-pilots job. But after being in the van with the same guys for days on end, normal directions were just too easy. Too boring. All of the directions were given simple English names. And of course, […]

Day 14: A swim and a movie

St. John's Harbour

After a short recovery from last night, we were up and back in aerostat looking for a pool to relax in. The community pool next to the university was just the ticket. That afternoon, we toured around the town and checked out signal hill. The location of the first trans Atlantic wireless broadcast. Also, the […]

'deed I is

After a nice long sleep, we slowly woke up and got our day going. We were still pretty tired and sore from sleeping on floors and driving across the country, so one of our goals today was to find a pool/hot tub and just sit in it. After about an hour of driving around and […]

Day 12: We did what they said can’t be done

We made it, boys

Woke up to a beautiful view of a little pond outside St. John’s (there are no lakes in Nfld, everything is called a pond). We hopped back on the Trans Canada for the last time as we headed towards the end. The highway technically ended at a garbage dump near St. John’s. There was no […]

yep...no gas

We got a nice wake up call about an hour before docking. Then half hour before. Then 15 minutes before. Then once we had docked, we had to wait another half hour before we were allowed to go down to the car deck. Finally, we got off the boat and officially landed on the 10th […]

Theodore Tugboat just chilling in the Halifax harbour

We slept in a little today and struck our campsite. We left a thank you note for the hospitality and drove into downtown Halifax. We spent the whole morning and early afternoon touristing around town. At a local brewery we refilled our growlers before hopping on the trans canada to Sidney, NS. We found out […]

Day 9: The Isle of Potatoes

Ocean to ocean in 9 days

We yet again woke up early, packed the van and headed off. Before leaving Fredericton we took a quick drive around the UNB campus. It’s quite an old campus, with a lot of bright red brick buildings. From then we drove to PEI via the confederation bridge. At the beginning of the bridge we stopped […]
