In his book, ‘Travels With Charley’, John Steinbeck wrote, ‘We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. …The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.’
This is so true; you can plot a route and plan an itinerary; waste of time – as we have learned after…. yes, 44,000+ miles on the Guzzi, 5,000 on the Honda, and around 50,000 nautical miles on our various boats.
So beyond booking our flight to Toronto on the 31st May we are hanging loose. Well, kind of; Jan and I are disagreeing already. I want to cross Lake Erie to get from Canada to the USA, while Jan is talking about going through Detroit, MI.
My route involves sleepy little towns and a 3 hour, peaceful ferry ride from Leamington, Ontario to Sandusky, Ohio; Jan’s route involves another 100 miles and a very short ferry ride across the St Claire River followed by a 150 mile ride on the horrendous interstate, riding through Detroit and Toledo. Men!
Time will tell which way we go 🙂
