On the road again! It is time for me to admit that although I am glad to do this cross-country journey—especially with Wilson—I’m going to fly to long-distance destinations from now on. Oh dear that sounds so defeatist of me.
The thing is: the weather has been a challenge; Wilson is so busy smiling he isn’t much company when it comes to conversation, all he manages to say is, “Are we there yet?” and a truck loaded with live pigs just pulled into the parking lot of the “Bob’s” motel where I am staying at tonight. They are definitely not happy to be going on a roadtrip.
In my true form though, regardless of any given situation I do tend to view the world through “Rose Coloured Glasses” so here is some of the upside:
• My 2001 Grand AM is running like a dream car—and I don’t owe any monthly payments on it.
• When I crossed the border into Manitoba from northern Ontario the price of gas dropped by .18 cents a litre.
• The trans-Canada highway system is very good. Well maintained and no serious construction delays.
• Technology is making it possible for me to stay in-touch with everyone and I can listen to music I like when going through sections with crappy radio reception (Iphone, laptop) and not get lost (GPS.)
