|This is the first entry to our trip journal. We are starting to prepare to make our trip to the Canadian Maritimes. Preparing for a trip of 6-8 weeks takes a lot of planning especially when you own a farm, have pets and family members living on the farm. Special items have to be handled when you are leaving the United States for this long, i.e. vehicle insurance, vehicle titles, money conversion, cell phone coverage, health insurance coverage, etc. Our plan is still to leave on June 10th if all goes as planned.
