This was our third road trip. Other than to visit my mother in Hanover, Ontario, and Doreen wanting to see Niagara Falls again, we had no real destination. Our tentative plan was to get to Nova Scotia and south into the New England States. It was a pretty big undertaking to head entirely across the continent but we had booked extra time off this year to make the trip.
If I were to describe this year's trip I could sum it up in one word - LOST. Maybe "lost" is a bit melodramatic. We always knew where we were, we could just couldn't find the right road to get out. From doing laundry to viewing the White House, we were constantly going in circles.
Due to work commitments, I was unable to leave on the weekend so I flew from Calgary to Winnipeg on the Monday morning and Doreen met me there. She left Saturday and drove into the states, went to see the "International Peace Gardens" and then continued into Manitoba to pick me up at the airport about noon.
