Eventually, we did get moving again..

They must have moved the highway because the iDrive had us driving through mountains!

Point C: Arrival at the Chateau Saint John.. Where the weary travelers drank at the bar and spent the night.

We had spots in a heated underground parking garage reserved for us.

The next morning, breakfast at the hotel for the group


...and we were off to Truro for a gas and lunch stop on our way to Baddeck

Point E: Truro was a crappy city with crappy roads and lots of traffic.. and it was pouring rain and the crappy Shell station malfunctioned for credit cards. This is where we were also lightly harassed and warned by the police for "high speed" driving as well.. but they were actually very nice and polite about it and loved the cars.

[Sorry no pics in Truro but it was pouring out]

Off to Baddeck.. Way out in the boondocks! Baddeck is where the Cabot Trail is..

Point F: We arrived without incident

..and after dinner, a shower and a shitty pub at the hotel we were fresh and ready to hit the Cabot Trail in the morning. Baddeck is a pretty barren place.. mostly camp grounds and farms..

I didn't realize the trail was actually as long as it was. I believe it was 185 miles total..


We made a lot of stops along the way.. basically when the view looked too incredible not to stop!

This 911 from Montreal saw all the cars and decided to introduce himself and join us for a little bit of the run.. He had a GoPro in front...maybe he got some video?
