Road Trip - July 2015

The plans for this trip started out with us heading to Alaska. It was going to be something completely different for us. All indications were that we might have some trouble finding accommodations so we needed to prepare for that. We considered renting a Cruise America type of camper but I didn't warm to the idea of dealing with the water and sewer chores - and Doreen didn't know how, nor wanted to learn. Also, we wouldn't be able to explore off the beaten trail. OK - scrap the camper idea.

Then one week before leaving Doreen went to Walmart with the idea to buy air mattresses and sleeping bags. It was raining and cold. It felt like a snow storm was blowing in. That finished her. She decided she really didn't want to climb into the back of her car to sleep - in the cold. Truth be known - neither of us could likely even crawl into the back and get out again.

So she phoned me and asked "Do you really want to go to Alaska"? My quick answer was "no". Scrap Alaska. If we can plan to go to Nova Scotia and end up in Memphis, we can plan to go to Alaska and end up somewhere else. We decided that there were only two totally unrelated destinations that we wanted to go on this trip - Hanover, Ontario to visit my family and for Doreen, Hamilton, Missouri to visit Missouri Star Quilt Co. The rest? TBD.
