Acadia historically was a part of the former French colony in northeastern part of North America. To this day, you can find traces of the past French colonization. Local residents often speak their own Acadian French dialect. In some places, they even raise the Acadian flag, the french tricolor banner with the yellow star.
The main purpose of this trip was to get the basic experience while traveling by Jeep. Sleeping in a tent, preparing meals and using the equipment required in such escapades, are the things we need to get to know. In addition, we were interested in Acadia. It was the whole team's (Eva, Matt, and Matthew) journey through the northeastern corner of the United States. In Canada, we continued our trip through the Gaspe Peninsula and the Maritime Provinces. Searching for off-beaten path places, we navigated many miles of logging roads in northern Maine and some dirt roads in Nova Scotia.
I bought my Jeep two months earlier. We gave him a name Balios after immortal horse of Greek mythology. Before the first trip, I worked on a few simple and basic improvements such as the car alarm with motion detector and power locks in front doors. I also added the mesh grille, hood lock and the tailgate tray table. We bought a SUV Tent. These were not any serious preparations because the region where we headed did not to put high demands on the expedition vehicle. Therefore, I have not even changed the tires and I decided to drive quite worn stock rubber.
While on the journey in Acadia, we gained some traveling by Jeep experience.
Besides that, our Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is great!
