  2. • Running out of gas on a Canadian Highway •

    Is not as bad as it sounds. Here’s how it happened to me…

    I was invited to #Shediac for a Lobster boat tour so I left #Fredericton with my fuel gauge indicating I had over 25% left so I was planning to gas up on the highway.

    I hit the road direction #Moncton enthusiast about getting on a Lobster boat.

    After a few minutes the engine started chugging… Noooooo… I was going uphill and barely made it to the top where the engine gave up on me… Full stop :-)

    Things like this always happen when you have to be somewhere!

    So I didn’t hesitate and put on my fourway flashers, grabbed my jerrycan and positioned myself next to the road waving at cars passing.

    Within a minute a truck pulled over. Unfortunately he didn’t have any gas with him but he offered to drive me to a service station. Getting back with the gas would be tricky so I thanked him and went back to hailing cars.

    Again within minutes a car stops. Same scenario as last one so I thanked them as well and went back to ‘work’.

    With the next car that pulled over I got lucky!

    Steve, the driver, offered to drive me to the service station and back. This way I would maybe still get in time to Shediac.

    Steve told me it happened a few time to him as well and that he’s happy to help out.

    Great guy that connected with me on Facebook afterwards to check if I made it in time, which I did, and he also invited me for a beer in Fredericton if I ever make it back there.

    So Steve if I make it back to Freddy, we’re going for beers and I’m buying ;-)

    See you when I get there!

  4. • Dealing with the noise •

    I’m staying a few days in #SaintJohn to get the exhaust of the van fixed. Generally you hear me before you see me arriving :-)

  9. • BBQ with a slice of golf •

    On arrival in #Fredericton Rose got in touch and invited me to join her and her husband for a bbq with friends.

    I made my way to her house, parked the van on the driveway, gladly accepted the offer to take a shower and off we went to their friend’s place :-)

    Once there Craig and Mel invited me into their home with a big smile and a cold beer. I got introduced to all their friends and joined them on their beautiful terrace for a delicious bbq.

    Turns out there’s a golf course behind their house and they told me I should give it a swing. Never golfed in my life so I gladly accepted!

    Their awesome 8 year old daughter Ryan joined me on the green and showed me how it’s done :-)

    She obviously won so shamed and beaten :-) I went back to a great group of friends to spend a beautiful evening with them.

    I ended up staying over in their guestroom for a good night sleep in a proper bed. A blessing for my back after two nights in the van :-)

    A big thx to Rose, Craig, Mel and all their friends for inviting me into their world and life her in #Fredericton

    Loved it!
