Blah, BLah, BLOG
After several years of talking about it and a few life hiccups along the way, we are finally going to do it, we are going on a road trip, destination - Canada. We have the 2nd largest country in the world and we have seen very little of it. We sold our home in Nanaimo, BC. That was the easy part. Now packing up, throwing out, boxing, taping, donating, cleaning and storing, what an overwhelming task this is. We managed to store our home in a 10x20 storage locker. I look at the stuff and think, 'WOW, we still have a lot of stuff!' I swear that one third of the stuff comes from our kitchen, I am guilty of buying a lot of kitchen gadgets (which I am very proud of the fact I didn't rush out to buy the InstaPot). Now, packing the car is another thiing...we still haven't decided whether to get a trailer or camperized van, perhaps after a week or so of tenting, we will find the solution to our dilemma. So we stuffed our Hyundai Sante Fe with our suitcases, cooler, tent and other camping paraphenalia like there is no tomorrow...oh and our dog, Dudley.
The purpose of our journey this summer is for two reasons, Chris - after last years health scare and myself - rapidly losing more vision than I care to admit. We live in such a beautiful country and it would be a shame not to explore from west to east, starting here in British Columbia. With this trip I am taking my #apple watch, iPad Pro and #RunGoApp. With my vision loss, exploring will be a big challenge, so I hope the app will help us, if anything, not get lost. But getting lost is not such a bad thing either, some of the best hidden gems are found this way, by accident. So this blog will be my journey, our journey, and I hope the wifi Angel will be with us so we can share our experiences with you. We will explore Canada like we never lived or seen before. Stay tuned...
Oh by the way... if you have done tenting, RVing or other forms of mobile living for several months, leave a message! We would really like to hear your experiences, pros/cons and advice!
