TBD - 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 Karen didn't warm to the idea of dealing with the water and sewer chores - and I don't know how and don't want to learn how. Also, we wouldn't be able to explore off the beaten trail. OK - scrap the camper idea.

Then one week before leaving I went to Walmart to buy air mattresses and sleeping bags. It was raining and cold. It felt like a snow storm was blowing in. That finished me. I decided I really didn't want to climb into the back of my car to sleep - in the cold. Truth be known - I don't even know if I can crawl into the back of my car.

I phoned Karen and asked "Do you really want to go to Alaska"? Her 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 Karen's family and Hamilton, Missouri to visit Missouri Star Quilt Co. The rest? TBD.
