Overland eGuide for Nova Scotia
I'm so happy! I just got my first eGuide finished for my Canadian Crossing Overland Trail (CCOT) project (you can read more about that here)!!
The guide is for the Nova Scotia leg of the CCOT is available free - order it here and I will send you a copy by email.
This is such a fun trail, winding through many rural fishing villages and spending a lot of time on logging roads up through the northern part of mainland Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island. It is just over 1200 km in length (750+ miles), so is a bit longer than the Oklahoma section of the Trans-America Trail.
Plus, the Nova Scotia leg ends at the Newfoundland ferry terminal - once you land in Newfoundland, there's another 2000 km (1200 miles) to work across the Island, at which you can turn back south for a ferry back to Nova Scotia, or continue on to Labrador and eastern Quebec. My eGuide for the Newfoundland leg should be online in a week or two.
For anyone that has driven the Trans-America Trail, I'm trying to keep the CCOT in the same spirit - avoiding highways and sticking to gravel whenever possible, avoiding really technical sections so that people with all kinds of overland rigs and motorcycles can enjoy it, and routing past some of the historical and scenic highlights along the route.
In addition to the free eGuide, I have GPX maps for sale at a very modest price, plus some stickers, photos, and swag.
I plan on having four eGuides online over the next few months. I won't finish up the full traverse until next year but will have info about a full circuit of Atlantic Canada finished this autumn.
