Contemplating...was going to be NOW but if they open...thinking about it. We would be out in the boonies anyway...not "tourist" stuff...hiking etc. Research tells me it rains a bit more..might be a bit of a bummer for outside stuff though.

There is a good long fall, first frost often not until mid-October.

Quite a number of logging roads.

I lived there for 25 years.

& I, I took the road less travelled by.

Is the Trans-Labrador fully paved now, or still some dirt sections? I'd love to make the trek.

From a wikipedia TLH entry, it appears that there's about 200 miles between HV-GB and Cartwright Junction that is still packed gravel (wonder if it's actually tar and chip?), left to be paved.
From all accounts of recent travellers, it's Route 389 from Baie Comeau, QC to Labrador City, NL that really needs some help.
A couple of youngsters from Ontario, Canada known on youtube as "A Guy, a Girl, and a Campervan" have videotaped a lot of the TLH route a few years ago when they did it. If you're interested in how good/bad/ugly it is in spots.

We're thinking about doing an eastern Canada trip this September.

Hubby and I did route 389 quebec in 2013. We timed it right (pure dumb luck) and there were not many trucks at all breathing down our necks. It is weavy winding so you cannot really get up to speed except on the straight aways...which is about 40mph. We are planning on doing this again. 389 was the worst part of all of it and much less was paved then.

Many of the campgrounds in eastern canada close in September. I was thinking about the same trip. Still some nice places open but as you get to the end of September lots are closed or closing.

Since I doubt we would be staying for days at a location, I'd be happy to boondock.

Anyone know a good website for this info in Canada?

Thanks,

We boondocked the far majority of the time while in Newfoundland/labrador. We fill in with occasional provincial park for laundry/water fill/dumping. We stayed pretty much wherever we wanted to stay there and was never bothered to move on.

I would want the parks to be open though so that we have those options for laundry/dumping.
