30K From Thunder Bay

I'm writing from the "Happy Land" camp site, right outside of Thunder Bay, Ontario - No Phone service, but high-speed Wireless Internet - That's the way it should be!

It was another successful 8hrs of driving, we'll do it again tomorrow and end up in Sault Ste Marie - A city that exists part in Ontario part in Michigan - good thing we brought our passports!

Ontario is a massive province - we crossed BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba in 1 day each - Ontario alone is going to take the time of those combined by my estimates!

Also, all the way until Ontario - it was pretty much 2 lanes - and you could comfortably maintain a solid 140-160Km/h - but as soon as we hit this massive province, we hit one lane and big trucks in front of us going 80k/h, then to top it off - every 100k there's these big signs which are like menu's for speeders. They read:

Want to Speed?
100km/h............$98
120km/h............$200
130km/h............$298

I'll take the 130km/h with a side Ceaser please.

Anyways - I love Ontario - when i was 20, I had spent about 1/2 of my life here - i just remember it being a lot "cooler". I'm sure all will be forgiven when we hit Canada's Wonderland!

PS - We got our picture on the corner of Portage and Main - check out Flickr for them!

    What do I get for $10?

    cool is a relative thing.. so either you are getting "cooler" or it's global warming.

    btw.. i didn't realize your Honda Fit was moving on the map.

    Mick says: We were somewhere around Sault Ste Marie, on the edge of the great lakes, when the slurpees began to take hold. I remember saying something like: I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive?

    Dr. Keona: Did you say something?
