Hi all, we are now in Labrador. Went geocaching yesterday and seen 
a bunch of whales real close to shore. Today we drove up to Red 
Bay and watched a couple more. Red Bay feels like it is the end of 
the world. No more black top roads beyond that. Only gravel clear 
up to Goose Bay. Over in NFLD I saw a bear and many moose. A sign 
on the Canada Hwy said that last year there were 660 moose/vehicle 
colisions. Last night we paid $1.18 Canadian/liter for diesel. I 
don't even want to know how much that is per gallon US. The ice 
bergs are so neat. As I'm typing this in my RV, I can see ice 
bergs when looking out the window. I can't say it enough how 
friendly the people are here in Labrador and NFLD. Yesterday when 
I fueld up, the gas station owner told me I could just plug in at 
his building if I can't find a camground. He does not lock any 
door except his liquer store. Even his automotive business garage 
never gets locked.  A total stranger at the camground gave me his 
home phone number in case I needed help with anything. Another 
camper took us over to see his 1 million dolar fishing boat. He 
gave us some fresh cod. The dialect is tough to understand 
sometimes. Today (7/1) it was 46 Degrees F. One lady at the dollar 
store jokingly (I think)told us that their summer was last week. 
That's all for now.  Bernie
