Hitting the road!

The day is finally here...we will leave this morning, and start heading south on our 6 month motorhome journey to Mexico and back.

We don't travel very far each day....maybe 200 kms (120 miles) or so. We like to get going fairly early, and stop fairly early. But that depends on how many times we get out and explore during the drive.

Our first stop is at Ruth's sisters just west of Toronto...maybe a 4 hour drive in the motorhome, but probably half of that is just getting through Toronto! So today will be one of our longer drives, but we will probably do a few of those the first while just to get to some warmer weather!

Here is an approximate map of our route to the Mexico border. It will probably take us a month to get there. Nothing is written in stone, so if any of our readers want to offer us a reason to detour a little bit, we'll probably take you up on it!


  1. Wow, Lucky you, I will follow you from my perch here in PA. for a month and then from MO. So glad to see you realizing your dreams.Be safe out there, Sam & Donna..

  2. I'm anxious to read about your travels and see where you end up each night.

  3. VERY cold here in Nova Scotia... wish we were going with you! Have fun and call soon...

  5. Looking forward to following along.
    Have fun! Take care.

    Lindsey and Justin...Sorry it is so cold there. I hope the rain has stopped. We will call soon.

    heyduke50...Send us an email (click above on the lefthand side)and let us know where you are at in Texas, we could possibly make a detour and meet up with you somewhere if you are interested.

    Hembree...We would love to take you up on your dinner offer if you are close to our route. Send us an email if you are serious and let us know what town you are in and if it is close enough we can make a detour as well.

    Thanks again everyone!
