Where, When, What and How

I was looking through my photos today on my phone looking for something that sort of represented 2015 and this sort of stood out to me. This was one of the BC freshwater ferries that I enjoyed running into during my road trip. What stood out is not that I like riding on ferries but that they were completely unexpected. Discovery of them was due to random traveling without a real destination besides "south". After discovering them, I started to look through paper maps for more of them. There is no GPS setting for "prefer free ferries".

After some thought today, I guess I do have some rides "planned". There is D2D on June 16th and 17th. The family reunion in Seward is the following weekend. And there is another reunion in the PNW in 2017. But that may not be a 4-wheeled trip. I still would like to go out to McCarthy again and ride the Denali Hwy sometime. I'm told that there are plans for a "real" road between Yellowknife and Inuvik instead of just an ice road. That could be fun just because it's new.

So that is the extent of my planning. I do put in some time and effort deciding what to bring and how to carry it but less on where and when besides general guidelines.

So, there are plans after all ;-) If you like free ferries, try the one across the Saguenay Fjord. The crossing lasts only 10-15 minutes but offer spectacular vistas.

One of these years I'll make it to the eastern side of Canada. That looks like a fantastic area. Thank you for the tip!

Hah, I have to read Richard's Blog (Alaska) to discover Sonja's suggestion (Germany), reminding me to spend more time in Eastern Canada (across a Continent, across an ocean). Blogging is truly International, far-reaching and why I like it!

That's is one of the best things about blogs!
