Thanks for the offers. perhaps I will catch a ride and P/U a rental once I am there. I am possibly moving to a place where I will need to drive a lot more and need this car to last a while, so would rather spare the mileage where I can. On the other hand it could be a fun drive up there.
See you at STPR
You can fly into Gaspe (YGP) with Air Canada, but you would still need a rental car from there - and the last person I know who did that spent the night on Isle de la Madeleine because Gaspe was fogged in...
I think it took us about 6 hours from Bangor last year. As Eric said, we'd happily give you a lift if you wanted to leave your car at my place to save the mileage. We're heading up on Wednesday and returning on Sunday.

At a guess (from my map book) its about 175 miles further to get to Baie (starting from Boston). It seems to be about 625 miles compared to about 450 to Charlevoix.
The obvious route (I-95 to Houlton, 2 to St Leonard, 17 to Campebellton, 132 to New Richmond) is probably the best. When I was going out with the Latreilles we would go through St Leonard and Campbellton (having come down through Edmunston).
