Cellphone plan for bike travel (Canada / US)

So here's the deal - I'm a Canadian and I will be traveling the US by bicycle for about a year / year and a half and I need to know what a good cell plan is for calling international long distance to Canada.
Basically I'm looking to set up a plan in Canada (before I leave) that I would need be able to originate calls from the US to Canada and not get nailed with roaming / long distance fees
Just wondering if anyone has any advice on cell plans or experience with this type of situation, anything helps.
I do have an unlocked smart phone so which carrier I use isn't overly important.
Thanks in advance for any info.
