Cross Hartland’s Covered Bridge

Before entering the world’s longest covered bridge, they say you should make a wish, close your eyes, cross your fingers, and hold your breath. If you make it to the other side, your wish will come true, which is both cute and slightly scary, especially if the driver is joining you on the attempt. Unveiled in 1901, the 390 metre bridge over the St John River was considered scandalous when it was built. Covered bridges were also known as Kissing Bridges, where young couples could escape the prying eyes of their chaperones and get smoochy.

New 2017 Ford Escape

It’s a rare occasion when the name of a car aligns so perfectly with what I’ve used it for. Whether rocketing along the notorious Trans-Labrador Highway, or cruising among the mountainous candy of the Icefield Parkway, the Ford Escape has indeed lived up to its name. It has stood up to some pretty epic challenges, and that includes taking a 6-month baby on a 30-day cross-country book tour. Compact yet spacious, powerful yet fuel efficient, and loaded with features you’ll soon wonder how you did without, the Ford Escape more than lives up to its moniker. – Robin Esrock
