Thoughts from Martha


Martha here.

Greg has asked to me to write a few of my thoughts about our upcoming trip.  So I will try to do that now.  This will probably be the one and only time you will hear from me.  Unless it is to correct something he said about me in his blogging or to remove an unflattering picture.

First, let me say that I am very excited about the trip and am looking forward to getting started.

But sometimes I wonder if Greg and I are taking the same trip.  Greg has taken an intense, 2-day outdoor wilderness first aid course.  He has a first aid kit that would make any EMT proud:  splints for every possible kind of broken bone, sutures, bandages, water purification stuff, emergency sleeping bag, emergency tent, and on and on and on.

When I informed Greg that I needed to get a haircut and a pedicure every four weeks I got the eye roll.  So you see what I mean about being on the same trip.

We just now decided to not go to Newfoundland, at least on this trip, too far north and east.  It would be a lot of long driving and kind of expensive to take the RV on the ferry.  I think we are both relieved to have made that decision.

I’m also still trying to convince Greg that it will be cold in Canada from the end of September on and maybe we need to be back in the US by November.  I guess we will just have to play that one by ear.

Well, I’m hoping this is a very boring blog.  I really do not want any controversial border crossings.  You remember from the blog, right?  “Hand me your keys and step away from your vehicle.”  Also, I’m hoping for no flat tires and no empty gas tanks.  I do hope that Greg takes plenty of awesome pictures and you can enjoy what we are seeing and doing.

Please come along with us and enjoy our adventure.

    Good luck with the haircut and pedicure. Given the man special grand eye roll, I think you might need an emergency kit with hair scissors and nail trimmers. Lotsa luck!
