Back to Day 1

Ruth has been diligently working to get all of our old blog reports up on this site. Our first year or so was done on the old tripjournal website and the reports were never available to read here.

But now they are!

If you are so inclined you can go all the way back to our very first blog post on October 5, 2007 and read forward on our journey across Canada and down to the Baja.

The adventure began here...



  1. Been doing that since Friday morning... up to May of 2008 now. Whew!

    (Our Blog) RVing: Small House... BIG Backyard

    1. I can't believe you have been reading them all. Now you will see all the mistakes we made as newbies! Live and learn has always been our moto.

  2. funny how most are leaving the trip journal website and getting all the posts put together on blogger!..I did the same thing and was sure glad when it was all done!..nice to have everything all in one place!

    1. Sue I remember you doing yours. It takes so long. I started doing this back in the winter of 2009 but then we travelled to Florida in March of 2010, then worked the summer of 2010 and just never had time to finish the job and then we have been travelling ever since. I really made a point of getting the last of it done this past month and yes, it is nice to have it all in one spot. So glad the job is done! Maybe over the next month we will try to put in the GPS coordinates of our camping spots. Sure feels good to be done.

  3. I won't bother, I was following you way back when you were on the Tripjournal. :))
    I booked Writing on Stone today for the August long weekend, I got inspired by your photo!


  4. Thank you Karyn Lee for being such a long time reader. I am glad that we influenced you to visit Writing-On-Stone Provincal Park. It really is a beautiful spot and we enjoyed ourselves there. I only hope that it won't be super busy for your visit, I think that was one of the reasons we liked it so much is that it was off season and very quiet.

  5. We have been reading your posts from the beginning, so we don't need to go back. But it is nice to have it all in one place.

  6. Well I only stumbled across these guys a month or so ago so I started back in 2007. I STILL have over three YEARS to read before I'm caught up !! AND I'm reading every comment also. And NO I don't cheat and read the current ones. hehehe

    I was sure glad though when Kevin stopped commenting on everybody else's comments. LOL

    And we were even at the same Bloggerfest last year in Q and didn't know each other.

    1. I can't believe you have gone all the way back to the beginning and have been reading all the posts, including the comments. It is going to take you a while to get all caught up. Hope you enjoy the reading.

      I remember seeing you at the Blogger Fest last January, I can't remember if we were introduced but I do remember you.


We love hearing from you! Please take the time to leave a comment...
