Now it’s time to hit the road for real, since Saint Jean Port Joli where I stopped for an already late lunch is only about an hour outside of Quebec City and I have to make it to my friend Dani’s in Hampstead tonight. I’ve already emailed ahead saying not to hold dinner and bought some treats since I know I’ll be gett [...]
Finally, I’m was on the road and it was much later than I would have liked. I was finally feeling like I was on a road trip and excited about all my planned stops and I wanted to keep moving until I reached them.
Unfortunately, I hadn’t filled up on gas in quite some time and I had also had a lot of coffee and water at breakfast. [...]
I loved having the GPS as my navigator on this trip. Not only was it another voice in the car, it suits my adventuring approach to travel.

I’d never driven this distance by myself before, I’d always had someone to spell me off, and I’d never driven this long alone ever. Plus, this was February. You never know [...]
La Jujuberie – How could I not stop?
Wow, I am so impressed with Tourism Quebec!
On Sunday I wrote both Tourism Quebec via Facebook asking if they had any info I could use on the #LexGoFurther road trip. Events, festivals, attractions, food, the like.
Here’s what I sent
I’m driving into and through Quebec as part of a Ford Canada sponsored Road Trip.

Since I’m driving or exploring or eating or photographing most of the time I’m on the road, the plan is to share my #LexGoFurther – A Ford Escape adventures in detail after I’m off the road.
I am tweeting, but I know you aren’t ALL on twitter, I thought I’d try and plunk in a live stream of twitter feeds h [...]
