Alive and well in Timmins!

Just checking in to let my fans (har har) know that we are alive and well in Timmins, Ontario (at the lovely Comfort Inn.) Our journey from BC to Quebec is going extremely well and we should be in Quebec by later this afternoon.

Yesterday's events:

-We passed our moving van, which had pulled over to the side of the highway outside Wawa, Ontario. We did a u-turn and went back to chat. Rocky (our driver) and his assistant were enjoying a lunch of barbecued moose steak. They had a folding table and chairs, barbecue, the works. Rocky hunts moose back in Fort Nelson. What are the odds of seeing your moving van on 4,35o km of road?

- I had to stop on the stretch between Wawa and Timmins and relieve myself. Not many toilets on that stretch of road. Maybe two. I had to go into the bushes. I peed on my foot.

-We actually made it to our motel before 9:30 at night!

Time for breakfast! Eventually the whole saga will be on a website.


  1. I'm happy to hear your trip's goinf smoothly. I guess you've experienced reason #142 Why Life Is Unfair to Women.

    As for seeing your own moving truck, I'd guess the chances are pretty good when there's 1 main route between here and there. We passed our truck both when we moved from Oregon to Nebraska and when we moved from Nebraska to California. No moose steaks, though.

  2. Hey, stranger! I was wondering if you all had reached your destination yet! Glad to hear you made it with only minor inconveniences. (For future reference, ask Karen how to best pee in the wild without peeing on your feet. ;)

    Hugs to you and Caber and the critters...


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
