Northern Ontario

Well meet Mr Moose. Isn't he a fine young man. Has his sexy glasses on . Once we started to travel through the North we were reminded that they come out after dark
It is fun to see the little town dress up the stuffed animals.

Bob did better today and only got a couple of showers. Just enough to get him wet. He was glad they weren't downpours like yesterday. We carry a gas can with gas in it, the price of as varies so much. It can cost anywhere from 1.13-1.32 a liter. When we find it cheaper than 1.32 we fill up the gas can and fill when needed.

Our last stop for the night was Wawa. I really wanted a picture of the Famous Goose. I took a picture of both of them, the new and the old. I like the old one the best. Our hotel room bed is a lot more comfortable than last night in Blind River. The owner told us he had just refurbished the rooms. I think he forgot the room we slept in. The bed was the kind that you had to hold on to the sides to keep yourself from sliding to the center. By time morning rolled around you were more tired than when you went to bed.

Well today is officially our first day on the road. Alf is on the handle bars of my bike which is on the trailer. Tigger is riding on the back of Bob's bike. Today we didn't pay attention to the fact that it was protest day for the Natives. We did good time until we hit Espanola. Traffic came to a stop while and we waited. After sitting for over an hour the traffic started to move very slowly. Then suddenly the skies opened up and it poured down rain. Needless to say it cleared the road and traffic started to move fairly quickly. But Tigger, Alf and Bob got soaking wet. Bob was a little more fortunate as he had his rain gear on so he stayed somewhat dry.

We made good time until we got stopped just before Elliott Lake turn off. We then sat for about 2 hours. You could here the drums and the Natives singing. Finally they opened up the road and everyone got going. I managed to get a picture driving slowly past the protesters.

Welcome to my blog.
My hubby and I have for the past 3-4 years have been planning a road trip by motorcycles and camper. Finally he retired on New Years Eve 2006 and the wheels were put into motion.
Our first adventure was going to Florida. I had never been there before and thanks to our wonderful friends George and Marla I got to experience the lovely South in the winter time. They let us stay with them for almost a month and then bring hubby's 16 year old son back in March.
Hubby had so much fun showing me around that he got just as excited as I was and even got his picture taken with Tigger but my fav pic is with Mickey.

Now our house is sold and the big adventure starts. Off to New York and surrounding area's. August 1 will find us on our way to the East Coast with our friends Wilf & Betty. Betty is from Newfoundland so we are getting the best tour guide. She will show us all around the island and the best parts to see.
Right now we are awaiting the birth of our second grand child ( a boy) to make his grand entrance.
But we all know Babies come when they want, even though Poppa and Gran can't go anywhere until he arrives.
Once we welcome Justin into the world our touring will begin. After visiting the East Coast we will work our way to the West Coast. We are going to spend the winter with my family in Alberta then in June head up to Alaska. Back down into the States and hit the places we didn't go to on the way back to Ontario. Hubby wants to Ride on Route 66 for a spell just so he can say he did.
Check back at our blog often once we hit the road it will be an everyday adventure.
Bob and Kate
