Quebec Bolerama

Recommended Posts

Last weekend, we were able to camp in the same park with the initial Quebec Bolerama. The hosts chose a beautiful campground, Camping Aulnaies, between St. Jean Port Joli and St. Roche des Aulnaies about an hour and a half east of Quebec City.

 

For a first ever rally, it was an enormous success. We walked around the rally grounds, viewing Bolers customized in every way, Trilliums old and new, and a number of Scamps. We camped just outside the rally loop, in H, and I think we were the only Casita and Oliver in the huge campground.

 

There were definitely a few standout rigs. Betty Boop Diner was one, all in hot pink and teal, with a pair of vintage Schwinns mounted in the back of the truck. Another was Suite 69, a 69 Camaro and Boler painted with matching deep blue bodies, and wide white racing stripes (remember when???).

 

All the folks at the rally made us feel very welcome, with varying levels of English familiarity. As a matter of fact, everywhere we've been in Quebec, we've been warmly welcomed. A beautiful, varied province, filled with avid campers braving the temps and weather this past week. (We have had some sun, but not a lot. Nights in the low 40's, drizzle, and wind are more the norm... ) Basically, no matter what the language, campers are friendly, and find a way to communicate. Anyway, almost everyone speaks better English than I speak French!

Thanks to a great wifi signal at our current campground, I could upload a few more shots:

Here's Suite Sixty Nine, camaro tug and Boler. Isn't it sweet?

The owners spoke little English, and I speak very little French, but OOH and Wow are universal! Tres beaux!

We also met a nice couple from Connecticut, who had a family reunion within the rally--three Bolers, Dad and two sons and spouses. Another young couple from Quebec City (Guy and Elise) is planning a year-long trip in their Boler with their three large dogs who share the front bunks, and provide additional heat in the cabin on cold nights. They've already towed their Boler as far south as North Carolina, and even further within Canada.

We met someone recently who grew up in Montreal. Reminded me of our lovely time camping trip a few years back. So looking forward to a return to Quebec.

Anyone else thinking about Montreal in the spring? I think it would be beautiful.
