Day 36 and 37 Shediac to Moncton, New Brunswick

Day 36 was a maintenance day, it started with me taking the motorhome to Spring Specialty ltd in Moncton to get an exhaust leak fixed. Thanks to James Murray and his crew, who did the work for free! Unfortunately, that didn't fix the real problem, The exhaust pipe at the back of the motorhome is blowing exhaust on the escorts and the medal bearers. Hopefully a solution will be found soon.

Then it was off to the Moncton R.V. center to try and get the electric step on the side of the motorhome fixed. The step is haunted at no-one seems to know what is wrong. A new one is $1200.

Cruisin back to Shediac

At the west enterance to Shediac, you will find the world's largest lobster, as Stompin Tom Connors would say, "in Canada we get to see them all"

Parlee Beach, not as nice as Basin Head in P.E.I, but pretty nice

My ride for this week. As drivers we change positions quite often to keep it fresh

downtown Shediac day 37

Another school presentation, this time in Shediac as this french school.........

Our next school stop in Shediac was at the Louis J. Robichaud School, here the medal bearer is one of their own students

Then it was off to the hotel de ville (city hall)
As we left Shediac, it was back to the big lobster for an impromptu team photo, I am on the far left in the blue shirt

While we were there, I met Colin Pick, who is the National President and CEO for the war pensioners of Canada, on holidays from Manitowaning, Ont. , he was telling me how he remembered Rick coming through his town 25 years ago, then he stuffed $40 into my hand to go toward the Rick Hansen Foundation

Later in the day it was off to another school, Ecole Mathieu-Martin, in Dieppe, New Brunswick

Not quite sure about these mascots, a little frightening

We had 2 motorcycle police leading us today. A little road construction to navigate on our way into Moncton

A news crew from CBC showed up to interview the medal bearers at the University of Moncton

The moose is on the loose

End of day celebration in Moncton, and there is that Ronald Mcdonald again! I heard he is following us all the way to Montreal, some gig!
