    Seems like icebergs are getting later each year. Late Jun thru early Jul will give you the best shot with the largest bergs. Not much, if any in May. Anywhere along the north coast to view. But Twillingate would be a nice destination.
    Skip the 4 season tent and bring a good bag. Rain may (will) be an issue, in that you won't escape it, and it'll be cold.

    Bring some bug repellent, but the last number of summers Ive never had to use any.

    How are you folks doing on your trip planning? I start mine with a date of around May 2. I have a lot to do until then! Any spots you are particularly looking forward to? Any cant miss items? Dave

    I'll be leaving Northern Michigan on May 28. My possible route is here:

    I plan on a week, give or take, to get to Newfoundland, 2 weeks on the "Rock," Then a week to get back home. Pretty easy going each day. I've not made any real plans for the Rock yet except 2 or 3 nights on Ramea Island to do some sea kayaking. Pretty soon I'll be starting another thread for the trip. I'll be hoping to find some other travelers to share expenses. I'm an old guy. At my age I camp when it's dry and motel/hostel when it's wet. Last year's trip to Alaska was about half and half camping and motel.

    I know I won't see everything in 2 weeks, but I plan on going back to see the rest.

    Be Well! KKORO
