Florida Sunset, We Have Arrived

Final Leg, Florida Here We Come – #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust
And the morning starts a little damp and a little breezy. But at least it’s palm trees that are being whipped around #FloridaOrBust #LexGoFurther

And dinner begins w/ SweetTea & biscuits. You can’t see the biscuits because @travelbunnyis25 scarfed them down before I could take the photo. #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust

I’m not quite sure how we managed it but a rousing chorus of “oh Canada” sung in 4-part not-so-harmony at a Hess truck stop outside of Orangeburg NC resulted in this free coffee! #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust

Not the face I expected to see when I opened my passport. Luckily I had lots of other ID. #LexGoFurther #FloridaOrBust Almost bust!

Florida or Bust – #LexGoFurther – Following Along Live
Florida or Bust, or possibly bustin’ to go to Florida. We’ll well past excited now.  We’ve cooked the meals, we’ve hugged the ‘rents, we’ve shoveled and shuffled and shuddered in the ice storm (granted nowhere nearly as much as many of our friends!) Since we’re going, we’re eager to get going.  [...]

Fresh Snow on the Road.

Fresh Snow on the Road.
One of the best things about traveling in Canada by train or bus immediately after a snow storm is that it’s so pretty. In fairness, it’s always pretty but the dusting of or piling of, fresh clean white snow makes everything look like it has been painstakingly crafted for a holiday special. But it’s not that commercial, it& [...]

Leg 5 – Storms, Puppy, Snow, Fires – #LexGoFurther – A Ford Escape
Prepare yourself.  I have left you waiting for the continued adventures of Lex Go Further – A Ford Escape for far too long.  It is now time for photos of the puppy interspersed with snow, food and a couple of tweets.  But mainly industrial-grade puppy cuteness. When last we spoke, I had just gotten onto a skidoo for the first time in m [...]

Leg 4 – Hampstead to the Island – #LexGoFurther – A Ford Escape
This leg of the trip was more leisurely than I expected. I had arrived at Dani’s after her girls had gone to bed, so I expected to wake up at the crack of dawn to the sound of a household of young teens getting ready for the early bus to school. I expected to get a little tiny amount of bustling time with them before they got on the bus [...]

Leg 3 – Saint Jean Port Joli to Hampstead – #LexGoFurther – A Ford Adventure
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 [...]

A Study in Full and Empty – #LexGoFurther – A Ford Escape
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.  [...]
