We ride at dawn!

Alright... the truck isn't packed, the people aren't packed and the appropriate documents have not yet been drawn up.

BUT! We leave at 5am tomorrow morning!

Our plan is as follows:

Friday - Day 1 - Regina to St. Cloud, MN
Saturday - Day 2 - St. Cloud to Tinley Park, IL
Sunday - Day 3 - Tinley Park, IL to Erie, PA
Monday - Day 4 - Erie, PA to Portland, ME
Tuesday - Day 5 - Portland, ME and outlet malls! to Ormocto, NB
Wednesday - Day 6 - Oromocto, NB to HOME!!!!

We'll update as we go, once we've retired for the evening.

Day 1 will be the longest driving day. Day 2/3 will take us in and out of Chicago, and past Cleaveland - this will be stressful for me. Days 4-6 should be smooth sailing through some beautiful country, and I can't wait to get to our new home.

The only hiccup so far is finding a hotel in the Valley once we get home. I'm a little uneasy with Mom and boy spending a couple chilly nights in the unfinished house, so we're going to have to find accommodations for us and the dawgs.  Laur looked up hotels, and I"m not sure if there is something going on, but everything is booked!

Pirate Juan has been firmly affixed in the Gertinator and Gertie has had all her belts (including timing) replaced, all her fluids changed and her check ups done.  She's ready to go.

All shall become clear in time!


  1. Nooooooo.... I didn't say goodbye. Oh wait, there are no goodbyes just "see you later"s, right? RIGHT?!?!?

    Try this for a place to stay when you get there. Maybe there will be something? https://www.airbnb.com/s/Oromocto--NB--Canada?room_types[]=Entire+home%2Fapt

    Safe travels! You will be missed!

  2. Thank you for the suggestions! There are some beautiful places listed!

    Laur is still around and the boy will be back to the Queen City on the 27th!
