I'm 7-8 drive hours from Bangor and tons of people I know drive to Bangor repeatedly to travel on cheaper air tickets to vacation in the USA.
So there must be some decent flights in and out of there...
I'm not spoiled...I deserve all my stuff.
I don't mean to be a downer and you all don't have to believe me, but I have been traveling from the US to Saint John multiple times a year for well over a decade, so I will stand by my comments. But, at least it'll be October, which will be much more pleasant than the mid-winter trip we usually make.
I certainly believe you that you think it's a pain. Myself, I don't mind having a connection when flying somewhere. Also, it'll be much easier (and cheaper) for me to get to Saint John from where I am in the US than it will be for manhn, for instance, who lives in Canada.
In the end, every single skating event will be easy for some to get to, but hard for others.
Exactly. Flying south is faster and cheaper for me than flying east. Doesn't mean I won't do it, it depends on the skating location choices for the year.
I've found that for me, it's cheaper to fly south and I get better flight times than travelling east. Everyone has places that are easier to get to. The choice is do you want to go.
For myself, because of how much cheaper it is to fly from and to the US, I can't see my cheap self justifying a flight to some Canadian locale just for the sake of exploration (even though visiting every province and territory in Canada is on my bucket list). I have to go there for a specific destination, like a skating event or a wedding or a family reunion, etc. I don't have family in the Maritimes, so I suppose that it means I'll become more familiar with their arenas (and Java Moose) than anything else the lovely Maritimes has to offer. Oh well, I didn't like Anne of Green Gables all that much anyway (save for dreamy Gilbert Blythe)...
I have no idea how I will ever be able to justify a trip to Nunavut unless a skating event is held there.

Bears are not my type...
Not even cuddly furry-white ones?
And Nunavut. Well I'd go, but chances of them ever getting one is probably slim to none.
YES!!!!! I will SO be going to this!!
The fall couloirs are still out here in ns this week so if next year is the same or even just delayed a little, you will be in for a real treat!
:I am only a five minute drive from Harbour Station....I am so, so happy that Skate Canada is coming to Saint John, New Brunswick.
Wonderful news! I’ve heard good things about Saint John. Looking forward to it.
