This narrative was started to document our ten-month trip around Canada and the U.S.A. It culminated in our arrival back in Fergus, Ontario, and our move into the condo that was to be our new home. But we did not then finish our time on the road, and the story continues.
Many people commented on our blog entries, although these were often hasty notes made in difficult conditions. Special thanks to the people who made positive comments, including Vi Young, Goran and Judy Bengtsson-Briggs, Mark and Margot Naylor, and many others.
Special thanks to our daughter, Louise Simos, who provoked me into this seemingly endless venture, and provided me with constructive suggestions and criticism as I try to order these ramblings into a more readable form.
