BEEP BEEP….BEEEEEEP. We woke up with a jolt at precisely 6:45am as the alarm went off. However, our body alarm had already woken us up with terrible excitement (well, maybe not for Patrick…who stayed in bed an extra 10 minutes).
We packed our last minute things, had breakfast, and said our goodbyes to Patrick’s parents 😦
We left Uxbridge around 8:30 this morning. We were but 10 minutes in when tragedy struck – my nose was bleeding!!!! It may have been the way I cranked the heat to the max and it dried up all the air…or, I was just super excited.
Anyways, when Patrick realized my nose wasn’t going to stop bleeding anytime soon, we stuffed some tissue up my nostril and hit the road for a second time. (Note: Patrick and I are dying of laughter as we are writing this).
Anywhoozle, the road conditions were amazing!!!! No snow on the ground…just sunshine and empty roads. It felt like we were the only ones on the road except for a few trucks and slowpokes.
The challenge we faced was the walkie talkies. It made for good communication, but only for a short period of time. Somehow, things got staticky and we were eventually both yelling into the walkie talkie, which didn’t help. It made for a fun game afterwards when we made pit-stops….”what were you actually saying when you were yelling (insert horrible sound)…..”
We had lunch in Parry Sound at Harvey’s, and pit-stopped outside of Sudbury at Timmie’s. We arrived at our final destination for the day at 5:30pm. We wanted to have dinner at a place in Sault Ste. Marie (final destination) called The Antlers, but we found out it was in the states. So, we settled for Casey’s.
We spent the rest of our evening picking out audio books for tomorrow’s drive, planning our stops for tomorrow, and resting our aching bodies while pondering over Soul Pancake by Rainn Wilson.
We hope everyone is doing well back home!
