Except for the basic stuff like couch and chairs and such, everything’s safely in the car or in storage, family members are in our house, and Luci, Gaston, and I are about to drive across the country to Montreal where I’ll begin work for Classic Auctions.
It takes five hours to get down to Vancouver, which means Chilliwack or Hope will probably be the first overnight stop. Then Nelson, Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Northern Ontario, Orillia, and onward to Montreal. We hope and expect to include Niagara Falls and Ottawa in there too.
I love road trips. Always have. And I’ve wanted to show Luci this big old country since we first got together.
This is a huge event in our lives. For me, it’s never too late to take chances and try something completely different. I think it keeps me sort of young.
The one big downside – it seems like I’ve said goodbye to family and friends way too many times in my life. Now I’m doing it again, and it’s put a lump in my throat that won’t go away.
