From Algonquin Park I drive in cool, sunny weather towards Montreal where i camp just outside of a town called Hudson, a few kms west of Montreal.
Has been enjoyable driving, listening to my cd's and the local FM stations along the way.
I find it cold, I'm wearing my long underwear, turtleneck ski shirt, jeans, leather chaps & jacket, a fleece pullover, a fleece jacket and my gortex rain gloves.
Beware of the police right at the province border from Ontario into Quebec, they are there to greet you with handheld radar guns and don't look so friendly or welcoming to me. I smile & wave, good thing I notice them pull one unlucky driver over first. Welcome to Quebec!
Once I have my tent setup, a nice hot shower and something to eat, I walk over with my Quebec map and ask some local campers about info on the area.
The people are very friendly and helpful, they tell me about a nice town past Quebec City on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River called Tadoussac. After a few minutes I have tomorrows destination planned, Tadoussac, Que.
"A fantastic, informative and inspirational DVD."
"It's brilliant - thank you very much!"
