oh canada

Note received today:

Hey Guys,

If you're planning a trip I'd love to go. I was just trying to plan a cross-america road trip last night. I was going to go cross-canada but when I pulled up the map I noticed that there's like, nothing of interest between quebec and bc.

- CH

Oh, speaking of maps, I know a few people who will love this. Map Tetris!

Who is this CH and why does s/he not know of the wonders of the area labelled "wasteland" so horribly across much of our beautiful country??

You go ahead and drive through the States, CH. One less driver on the TC when we do our trek this summer, enjoying all the spendours along the way.

Yes, many of my very favourite things in Canada are between BC and Quebec.

CH is a bit of a goon, but he'll never read my blog, because he doesn't know it exists. Mwah ha ha ha ha.

Just out of interest, have you read "Notes from a Big Country" by Bill Bryson ? (it's about his return to small town America)

Well, there's the giant concrete Ukrainian Easter Egg outside of Vegreville, Saskatchewan. That is damned interesting.

I've driven across the US and would say that Nebraska is more boring than even Manitoba. I swear it took us at least 670 hours of flat out driving to cross that blistering expanse of nothingness.
