Sitting at home is just not an option
We had fairly meticulously planned a 125 day adventure in boler travel, only to have it all go horribly wrong with the failure of our car and the return home after just 42 days. After two weeks of being back in Nova Scotia, feeling a bit cheated of our travel opportunity for 2016 we came to a decision:
It is time to get back out there!
We have a brand new 2016 Honda CRV. We have enough US $ to go back down south. So, hey ho and away we go. The trip is about 10,000 kilometers long, involves the following stops: Lancaster, PA, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, New Orleans, LA, Nashville, TN, Mammoth Cave National Park, a visit to Sarnia Ontario to visit family and a stop in either Montreal or Toronto on the way home. 35 days. We will be staying in vacation rentals and our budget calls for around $100 US a night for accommodations, and around $125 per day for other expenses, like gas food, miscellaneous, etc.
We've pre-booked much of our accommodation with ample time built in between stays to spend some quality time on backroad travel, rather than banging away on the interstates. We've always found interesting places and people off the beaten track.
There will be a new blog once we get closer to departure day...May 12!!
Let the excitement begin!
