41,437 miles of memories during four RV trips around Canada. We have been to every province and territory except Nunavut and it's still on the over flowing bucket list. As I sit here preparing a 30 minute presentation on our trips, it occurs to me how many stories 41,437 miles includes. I don't even know where to start. People ask me where is my favorite place in Canada besides our hometown Powell River. I can't answer because there are too many.
Highlights? They'd include the Mackenzie River tour from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk, NWT; the 18 hour train ride from Thompson, MB to Churchill on the Hudsons Bay to see polar bears and beluga whales. Crossing Confederation Bridge to PEI for the first time had me jumping out of my seat. Exploring NFLD for 2 weeks in Boo the Menopausal Van left us wanting more. Exploring "North of 60" to the Yukon and Northwest Territories blew us away with its wild scenery, vast open spaces and complete silence. While there being taken to a First Nations medicine woman, and spending the afternoon eating bannock and listening to stories was a day I'll never forget. And I haven't even touched the dozens of people stories from all the farmers markets we've sold at.
The memories go on and on for every province and territory and we want more. This year we'll pick blackberries and can them for the next big trip. Brandied blackberry sauce is a hot commodity. I'll get the fourth RV Canada book written for the spring of 2013, then we'll go back across Canada to explore the eastern side of NFLD in time for lobsters by the end of June. This year we'll stay close to home.
My point of all this rambling around the country? If you dream of seeing more of your country but don't think you have enough funds to make it happen, think again. Get creative. Anyone can travel and work or sell at the same time IF their dream is a priority. In my books, I give you tips on how to do so. They are available at: www.write2dream.com
Don't wait untill all the lights are green at the same time. It won't happen ....except on the main street of Yellowknife. Death, illness or accidents cut short millions of dreams so get on with it! My 44 year old son went from thinking he had it all together to a car accident Sept.5/11 that left him a quadrapalegic. It changed all of our lives forever.
Write down your travel dreams. Put pictures up on a dream board. Set a date to make your goal, then work towards it but never, never give up.
