So I've decided to plan a cross country trip to the Maritimes next spring. So after the spring thaw, May to June most likely. My hope is to get a beater that will get me there and sell it for a plane ticket home.
I have about 7 to 10 weeks of holiday I can take. There are some places I want to visit along the way but with that much time I figure I can take the snails pace and still have time left over.
I haven't picked a route but because I want to visit places in Alberta and Saskatchewan, I think I'll be staying north of the 49th parallel. A friend may join me in Toronto but for the most part, it'll be myself and maybe my dog. So I'm open to suggestions for places to go.
So I'm on the lookout for a decent beater that can at least get me an economy ticket home. A first class ticket would be great but I'm not picky. I pack light so something that can seat 2 people, a couple of backpacks and camping gear would do.
Is it crazy? Yeah. Mid-life crisis? Most likely. But my wife is telling me to do it so what the hey.
