So the day has finally come and tomorrow my wife and I will be headed north from Orcas Island to Sidney, BC via Friday Harbour and then up the old Trans-Canada Hwy to Campbell River then to Quadra Island and Cortes Island then reverse. Our accommodations include a mix between B&Bs, motels, camping at provincial parks, Couch Surfing, and Warm Showers.

Thanks to GW's Economic Stimulus checks, we will be spending that money and two weeks on our yearly Canadian pilgrimage.

I will blog about the trip on our website ( including pictures, video, and hopefully GPS route updates (if I can figure out how to do that).

Cheers to all!
