Well, day one is over. Good times...it was about a 12 hour travelling day. We left around 8 so that we could catch the Chi Chee Maun around 11:20. Ooooh the Chi Chee Maun...it's funny because if you know me you know that when I go on rides like the swinging ship and the buckets at Wonderland I can't stop giggling because of the funny feeling in my stomach. Since there was some wind and stuff yesterday there were some waves going on and I was laughing so much! Especially when I couldn't walk in a straight line; that only made me laugh harder. I am SO easily amused!

So we made it all the way to Wawa pretty much uneventfully. Northern Ontario is soooo pretty I just can't get over it! Maybe later I'll post some of our pictures (bless the invention of the digital camera). Luckily for me I have access to Dad's laptop so I should be able to make some relatively regular updates over the trip. Keep ya'll up to date without having to just try to remember what's happened as we go along. I'm sooo tired. We got here (Wawa) around...8:30 last night. Then we ate dinner so we didn't get to bed until around 11:30 and I got up today at 7 so I could take a shower so I'll be fresh for the road. We're staying at some crazy little motel that briefly gave Daniel and me flashbacks to the "Bates Motel" from a certain movie. Luckily we are all still alive (it actually isn't that bad...the guy we thought was the owner is actually a guest so we were good to go!).

Well, I've got to go...I need an advil if I'm going to make it through the rest of this day headache free. I woke up with a TERRIBLE headache but hopefully that goes away.

Signing off!

Ok, so just so you know, I'm going to try to update as much as possible so that I can have a record of the stuff that happens since I have a horrible memory and will probably forget everything once I get home. If you don't want to read it you don't have to. Sometimes you really have to be here to understand the eccentricities that make us up.

So we got a relatively earlyish start today and after a relatively uneventful day we arrived here in Drydon...tomorrow we should make it at least to Manitoba if not all the way to Saskatchewan. The only thing that really happened today that was "exciting" was that we were attacked by a large alien bug at lunchtime. I, being me, immediately jumped away from the picnic table figuring we had more food in the van and we should just cut our losses...mainly because I'm a wuss. Daniel had at least grabbed his food before he very bravely leaped from his seat at the table. Apparently it's some giant scary bug from Japan or somewhere that David has seen warnings about at his school. We stopped at the home of Winnie the Pooh (White River) and we stopped at a Tim's in Thunder Bay (I have discovered that one of the only ways I'm going to survive this trip is my Tim Hortons coffee...although we did stop at a Robin's and it was quite good as well but the large isn't as big there.

So, here are some pictures of what we've seen so far

Beautiful North OntarioCollapse )

So that is all for today because I am TIRED. So have a good night everyone!!
