NF- a year in advance

Jump to last reply

Greetings! I was planning a trip to NF this year, but I was financially unable. So, I'm planning for next year during the last week in June and the first week in July. I will be driving from the US (2 days from WV to N. Sydney Ferry, NS). I know it sounds like a lot of driving, but I've driven coast-to-coast 3 times in the US and car rental rates (which don't seem to include unlimited mileage) in NF are a bit high. Plus, I like the idea of bringing whatever I want from home along with me.
I'm allowing 12 days for touring NF. My itinerary includes Gros Morne, St. Anthony/ L'Anse aux Meadows, Bonavista Peninsula, Woody Island, Cape St. Mary's and Witless Bay Ecological Reserves and finally, St. John's. I've done a lot of research and came to the hard realization that I just can't do it all! I would appreciate any comments or suggestions on what I've included in my itinerary.
I do have some questions. How early should I book accomodations, especially places like Quirpon Lighthouse Inn?
What about driving times and speed limits? i.e.- NL database states St. Anthony to Cow Head is about 4 hrs. drive at the speed limit, while other sources say more. What's the best source for accurate driving times?
And one last question. My partner and I were planning to stay mostly at B & B's across the province. I've read that NF is Gay and Lesbian friendly and I've visited the Purple Roofs website which does not seem to list accomodations in some of the areas I plan to visit. How comfortable (or awkward) will it be (for us as well as the hosts) staying in someone's home for a night?
Answers or comments to any or all parts of this very long posting are welcome.
Thanks, John M.
