Swift Current to Dinosaur Prov Park to Calgary

Note: Comments are welcome especially if you can recommend any places to visit on our trip &/or let us know your favourite camping meals — we’ve not been very creative meal-wise!  Feel free to comment!! Sept 24 – Swift Current to Dinosaur Provincial Park We woke up at the Safari Inn in Swift Current to […]

Winnipeg to Brandon to Moose Jaw to Swift Current

Sep 22 – Winnipeg to Brandon A beautiful 8 degree morning to get up in Winnipeg with dew covering the tent but just enough sun to dry everything out while we had a shower and had our yogurt and cereal. We started the day by visiting the Royal Canadian Mint where, years and years and […]

Marathon to Winterpeg

Woke up at Sean’s & Micheline’s place in Marathon and went for a quick jaunt on Pebble beach where Lake Superior was hell-bent on showing us that the Ocean had nothing on her — with waves as big as any we’d seen on the Pacific.  Chris is now on the Marathon “most-wanted” list as she […]

The Sault (redux) to Marathon

We woke up Monday morning early to avoid the oncoming rain (which didn’t end up arriving for about another 3 hours) to a dew-covered tent, car, and selves.  We were a bit slow to get moving but managed to make (using the free wifi at our campground) a physio appointment for me in The Sault […]

To “The Soo” (Sault Ste. Marie)

Camping in Tobermory & Ferry to Manitoulin Island

Oh, and we love the light — it’s perfect for our tent attic) to Tobermory and camped at the Cypress Lake campground in Bruce Peninsula National Park.  It was a perfect warm night for the first night in our spanking new Eureka El Capitan tent. Chris graciously […]

Yay! We’re off on our trip!

Only two weeks and three days late, we’re finally off on our cross-country trip! The Prius is packed to the gills with probably way more stuff than we need.. we’ve got a tent, a small table, two camp chairs, an awning, sleeping bags, thermarests, a small stove, cameras, (a drone!!), a cooler, warm clothes, cold […]

Departure minus one (or two?)

We’re getting very close! Only two weeks behind but we’re hoping to get on-the-road finally tomorrow.
