We began planning our trip across Canada back in April and while it has been fun, it has also been a challenge! In British Columbia most Provincial Parks are open through the Thanksgiving Day weekend in October. It turns out Canada’s maritime provinces shut most of their parks down in mid September. We will be starting our trip on August 1, but we have two weeks planned in Edmonton, Alberta and a few days with hubby’s cousin on his farm in Saskatchewan, so our trip will really begin around August 19th in mid Saskatchewan. Since we hadn’t planned to cross into the Eastern US until mid October we thought we had lot’s of time but when you factor in the lack of places to stay I was getting a little worried that we were not leaving early enough.
So hubby and I spent the morning looking over our map and double-checking closing dates on places we planned to stay. After a few hours hubby decided it would be more fun to go out and flush the hot water tank and replace the anode! I, on the other hand, persevered and I think we finally have a workable plan.
Of course like all our planning these are “jello solid” plans but at least it is a start. We still need to spend more time on our route through the Eastern US but as our youngest son would say “that sounds like a future me problem” 🙂
Until next time …
