And we're off!

On the one hand, it feels like the last five months went by fairly quickly. But on the other hand, and as expected, the last few weeks dragged a little bit.

But the day is finally here! We're officially off work today, and we'll be traveling pretty much non stop for the next seven months!


And hopefully you'll come visit us here every day to see what we've been up to.

First up, is a two week motorhome trip to Ottawa!

3,124 kms (1,937 miles).

We hope to arrive at our daughter's house in Osgoode (just outside of Ottawa) on October 7th. So, we have to average 223 kms (138 miles) per day for 14 days. I'm sure there will be some 300 km days, and some days where we don't drive at all.

Notice we're taking the northern route through Ontario and into Quebec, and then south to Ottawa. Never done that road before, so there will be some new scenery along the way for us. And, we'll be able to stock up on cheaper beer in Quebec!

Other than stopping to see friends in Moose Jaw this evening, and in Rivers Provincial Park in Manitoba, we don't have many stops planned along the way. As is our usual method of motorhome travel, we'll just wing it. 

But Sherman is raring to go, and we can't get on the road if we're sitting here talking to you so we better get going!

Popular (and pricey) Teva sandals are on deal of the day today at Amazon. If you've always wanted some of these comfortable and high quality sandals, now is the time to get them...


And in Canada...a great deal on an HP printer...

    1. We are looking forward to it as well. I was there way back when I was 10 years old or so but Kevin never has been so it will be pretty new to us both.
