Hi, The first stage is done! 150km went OK the last part was a bit difficult. Had a little trouble finding my couch surfer, but all is good. Nice guy, and eating a lot right now. Most of the day there was a little breeze in the back so that made it easy :) Sunny and warm, but not to hot. Prefecture conditions for a long ride. Had ...
Thank goodness we (actually Tom) thought of a Plan B. The late winter storm did arrive in the Maritimes in full force, with snow, high winds, freezing rain and ice. All schools and flights in the Island have been cancelled for the day. Normally that's music to our ears, but today we're happily sitting in a warm hotel room in Drummondville, Quebec.
... to make that day.
Jeff and I sampled a variety of the cheeses having fun talking to the Madame as she passionately described each sampling. The samplings were divine – I was in heaven! Our purchases included the famous Louis D’Or (a firm cheese with a bit of a nut taste), Laliberté (a creamy soft cheese) and Bleu d’Élizabeth (a semi-soft blue cheese with a bit of sharp bite to it). ...
So, on this leg of the trip, I am joined by Nibi and Beta. We spent the drive multitasking between various iPhones, GPS units, music and cameras. Driving trips are different these days.
So during our trip we investigated two areas we think might give value to our readers. The first is best practices in sunscreen (sorry NB, we know you don't need it right now :() and the second, best methods of fuel conservation.
So the research into ...
After leaving Riviere du Loup this morning we travelled to Valcartier where we were met a few km outside the base by three Veterans who lead us into the base with their flags flying from their bikes. We were warmly welcome at the base where Wayne performed a few funny ditties, one of which included Garry and Byron, followed by a barbecue. Then we set out towards Trois Rivieres. Other than being a little ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN PLUS Hotel Universel Drummondville
This hotel was OK. It was pretty beat up, you could easily tell it hadn't been remodeled in a long time. I was upgraded to a suite and it was in a very weird configuration, two rooms separated by a long narrow hallway. The lighting and TV in the sitting room didn't work well, or at least I couldn't figure out which switches controlled which lights. I ended up just staying in the bedroom and watching TV there which defeated the point of having a suite. The hotel itself, especially the common areas like the lobby, hallways and vending areas were dark and dingy. The parking lot was rough, and there was no breakfast included. The buffet breakfast was $13.95! Outrageous. The only person on staff that was nice to me was the waitress at the buffet in the morning, the rest of the staff, including the desk staff, made it clear that they weren't too interested in dealing with me. Either because I am an American or because I don't speak French. Whatever. I will not stay here again, and based on my experience at a local restaurant for dinner
(Normandin), I won't be coming back to Quebec anytime soon. I'm a nice, polite guy with money to spend and I've never felt more unwelcome than my time at this hotel and the nearby restaurant.
