I'm moving to Vancouver! Did I mention that? I'm currently driving across the country. It is Day 1 of our trip!
We didn't make it as far as I had planned. There was an accident on highway 17 just east of Mattawa with a possible fatality. That meant they had to close down the highway to launch an investigation. Of course, this being Canada, the closest detour was 150kms behind us.We stopped at 10pm in North Bay (we had probably only been an hour away from it at 3:30pm when we had to turn around on the 17, but alas.) and are staying at the Sunset Inn (REALLY nice rooms) for $109 (more expensive than I would have liked, but they have wireless, free DVDs, and complimentary tea and freshly baked muffins in the morning...and the Super 8 was full, and was probably just as much).
Tomorrow we are getting up at 9am (foregoing my sleeping-in plan) and driving to Sudbury to see the Big Nickle! Yay! Childhood memories will be enjoyed by all.
