But the most life changing trip I took was leaving my home and my family in Ontario…

Not my whole family

and driving west to Vancouver with my partner Clive

to build a new life.

Hi all,

Had great weather so far.

We swung through Wiarton to see if we could find the famous groundhog.

This was all we found.

The name of the statue…

“Willie Emerging”

Really.


Rules of the road l.jpg

Rules of the Road

  • Each driver takes two hours shifts (unless it’s bad weather then Clive drives).

  • The driver gets to pick the music.

  • The passenger is at the beck and call of the driver and must:

    • make lunches on her lap,

    • look after the music the driver selects,

    • stay awake to entertain the driver (unless she’s driving and then she’s on her own while he sleeps).

Hi there

We’re still not out of

Ontario. Been driving for days. Sigh.

Drove through Dryden and stopped when we saw the giant moose. Tons of dragonflies too. Had to scrape bug parts off the windshield.

  • Gas station coffee is really bad,

  • really bad.

  • Don’t rush.

  • There’s so much to see.

Hi

We drove through the prairies today, well I did. Clive slept. I could see the weather for miles. I’d forgotten just how flat it really is.

Not a lot of places for

pit stops though.
