I didn't have time to read the whole thread, but did anyone mention Canada's burgeoning real estate market?

Thanks, that was some great info! I was just checking where those are in my road atlas, and they're really not much further than some places we've been to in Quebec. I was puzzled when you said Mt. Carleton "connects with the Appalachian Trail" because so far as I knew that ends in north-central Maine, but now that I check Google I see there's an "International Appalachian Trail" I'd never even heard of extending all the way from where "the" AT ends up to Belle Isle in Newfoundland! Wow! Wonder how long it takes to hike that ...I've done the entire New York and New Jersey sections of the AT plus parts of the Tennessee section; would love to do more of it someday.

The places we've hiked/camped so far in Canada are Algonquin, Lake Superior and Sleeping Giant PPs in Ontario, and Gaspesie and Saguenay Parks in Quebec. Initially we just started going up there because it was cheaper, but what's kept us going is the great campgrounds. One thing that's unfortunately happened with many American campgrounds over the past couple decades is that they've slowly but surely become overrun with RVs (especially the "family" campgrounds--which is often where we're headed since we've got kids) so that if you're in a tent, you may find yourself sticking out like a sore thumb! It's pretty depressing when you're out there gamely trying to entertain the kids with stargazing and stories around the campfire, while meanwhile everyone else's retreated into their motorized palaces to watch TV...

It's officially winter in St. John's. No huge amount of snow or anything, but cold enough to make your nose run like a tap after standing five minutes outside. I'm sure that was a thrilling mental image.

They were calling for 20cms of snow here tomorrow But it looks like it'll be rain instead... *phew* But we all know maritime weather can change in five minutes.

It's about -4C with a -11C windchill. Brrrfect

Oh did anyone see that New Brunswick is apparently the happiest province in Canada. I told you this place is awesome. Newfoundland is second. Kind of cruddy they left out the territories

New Brunswick: 78.6
• Newfoundland: 78.4
• P.E.I.: 76.
6
• Ontario: 76.1
• Quebec: 75.3
• British Columbia: 75.1
• Saskatchewan: 75.0
• Alberta: 74.0
• Manitoba: 73.2
• Nova Scotia: 72.8
Scoring is based on a scale out of 100.

I know, the price of snowblocks, ice caulk, and other construction materials is completely ridiculous these days.

Yeah, I tried it last week. It's tasty but otherwise nothing special. I'd still prefer a Bacon & Egg McMuffin given a choice.

There's a snowstorm in Halifax right now, the first snow we've seen all year. We have a snowfall warning and a forecast of 10-20 more cm overnight.

I love snow now that I no longer live at home and have to shovel it. Sledding at Citadel Hill tomorrow

Here's an interesting Canadian Christmas article, too:
