In 2011 we set out for a two month road trip and looking back I realize I did very little in the way of planning. This time I have done more research and have booked extra days to do sight seeing on our way to Newfoundland. We have hotels and tours booked through to Sept 4 but have left the rest open. On our way to Newfoundland, we have a set date to be in Deer Lake but after that we are free to stay and tour with no specific date in mind. I have poured over maps and tour guides, making notes of things we want to see and do. Currently our return date is early October. I didn’t realize how much there was to see in the Maritime Provinces of Canada and we want to experience as much as possible.
After months of planning, we leave in three days (Aug 6). The suitcases are out and a small mountain of stuff is rising beside them. The bills are paid and all the household things are taken care of. The car is sporting new tires and we are ready and raring to go.
We want to thank of Tech support people – Keith Howie and my niece Jacqueline Cullimore for their assistance in making the website easier to navigate and follow, and easier for me to post. I love the new look and I hope our readers will take advantage of the “Facebook” link. This trip is also made easier in knowing our good friend Bob Davies is caring for our home and sweet dog Molly. We will miss both of you while we are gone.
We hope our readers will enjoy following along as we drive across Canada and back. We have been looking forward to and planning this trip for a long time and we are very excited to start this journey.
