Several things have happened since my last posting in September.
Firstly, following a meeting just before Christmas with Bob and Thelma to discuss the route, we made some minor changes to incorporate places that have been recommended to us by friends and family. The map above shows the latest route. A stop has been added for a two night stay in the Algonquin National Park in Ontario and, after we leave Quebec, we are taking the road that runs along the north shore of the St.Lawrence River. We then take a two hour ferry across the river to Matane, Quebec Province, for the final two days across New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, to Halifax.
Secondly, Kenny and DeeAnne from El Paso, Texas will be joining us. They are very good friends who we met on the HERO Great Tour of China event. We stayed with them on our drive across the States in 2007. They will most likely rent a car in Vancouver and do a one-way rental, dropping the car off in Halifax.
Finally, we have decided on the leaving date from Salt Spring Island which will be May 2nd. If everything goes to plan we should arrive in Halifax on May 31st.
