Postcard from Antigonish, NS
Coastal Nova Scotia.
A quick hello from a very snowy east coast of Nova Scotia. We’re in Antigonish tonight and tomorrow head for Cape Breton. So far I think we’re the only tourists in the entire province. Everything is closed and it’s been nearly impossible to track down a lobster dinner. It’ll be even harder as we travel north, as restaurants and hotels are few and far between, all of them closed for the season. Even pulling over to the side of the road is tough, everything’s so covered in snow. Emily, the Jeep, handles it without complaint, though I’m erring on the side of conservative because the folks that might otherwise drive by and pull me from a ditch are also few and far between. Probably sitting with the owners of the hotels on a beach in Cancun right now.
Love it here. So beautiful. Tonight as we drove into Antigonish the snow was coming down hard, sticking to the trees, and making this place, at least for me, tonight, the most beautiful place on earth. Next stop Cape Breton.

Quebec City, 2012. After an amazing night in Quebec City, wandering around in the fog and snow, we drove to New Brunswick and then to Maine. And when I say we drove to Maine, I do not mean we drove into Maine. We tried. But after 5 hours of questioning, an extensive vehicle search, and [...]
Emily: The Jeep Geek Post
This one’s not going to appeal to everyone, but for those of you wanting to know more about Emily (my Jeep, and my home for the next year, starting a week from today), here’s the scoop. Yesterday I got her back from the shop after a few last minute modifications and she’s now ready to [...]
Adventure is Out There
Emily, just back from the final trip to the outfitters and ready for February. A friend once told me to watch the Pixar movie UP. Aside from the fact that I was crying like a little girl within the first 10 minutes (be warned), there was something about it that resonated powerfully with me. Part [...]
