Travel Tuesday – Protecting Electronics During Winter Travel

Keep Your Electronics Warm

Winter is here and it’s cold! So let’s talk about what this does to your electronics, cellphones, tablets, cameras, etc…

When hiking, snowshoeing, skiing or enjoying other outdoor activities, we all like to have our cameras or cellphones on hand to preserve the memories. Have you ever noticed your devices acting sluggish, or the battery draining quicker than normal? Here are some tips to help with common cold-weather problems you may encounter.

Batteries:

Cold weather drains your batteries quicker and therefore can lead to safety issues and disappointment.

Day Trips In New Brunswick With Kids

Day Trips In New Brunswick With Kids

For many summers now, we have been doing day trips from our home in Moncton, NB. With two children that are almost 10 years apart in age, we have tried to find adventures that are interesting for both boys. While some day tripping adventures have been the entire family, many have been just myself and the kids, while hubby is working. Keeping this in mind, many of the day trips are doable with one adult and a couple children.

Weekend Wanderings – Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest

This post is sponsored by Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest.* 

Our Weekend Wanderings took us to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, in late February. We packed up the car with our family of 4 and were on the road to the Jack Frost Children’s Winterfest. Only a few hours from Moncton, this was the perfect weekend adventure. For this particular adventure, we left Moncton around noon on Friday and arrived back home Sunday at suppertime. Our VIP Package included hotel stay for 2 nights, welcome bag for the kids upon arrival, snacks each night (if you are at the hotel at the time), breakfast with various kids show characters and early access to the sites each day.

Winter Road Trip Check List

Winter Road Trip Check List

We are trying harder each year to enjoy more time outside in the Winter. In Eastern Canada, we tend to get a large accumulation of snow most years. This is great if you are into skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, or other snow-related activities. We love things like Sleigh Rides (List of New Brunswick Sleigh Rides), and Outdoor Skating (In Moncton), or later in the season, visiting Maple Sugar Camps.

As I have been planning activities this Winter, checking out festivals (such as the Jack Frost Festival in PEI), looking for activities to do as a family, or seeking venues to visit within a few hours of our home, I got to thinking about what to take with us. Packing the car up for a Winter Road Trip is a little different than what I pack in the warmer Summer months.

In our vehicle, we pack a Road Trip Kit, and now have different seasonal lists of what to pack. You can find these printable lists for Summer or Winter, as shown below.
