Re: Road trip to Quebec musings
I believe winter (snow machines) is the big season in Jackman. Summertime, the main draw is rafting the Kennebec, which may not be that big a draw these days.
I was struck by the very cold reception we got at the US border after our last trip to Montreal 2 years back. The border patrol agents seemed to have lost any spark of warmth or humanity, not a very welcoming reception, even if they didn't search us. Used to be they'd act friendly in hopes of trying to trip you up and get you to admit you were carrying illicit susbstances/ weapons.
Now it's just scowls and frowns, as if that will deter Al Quaida.
