An Epic Christmas Adventure!
Originally this Christmas Steve and I were going to be in Kelowna for a friends wedding, the wedding date was changed and we both had time off so another plan was hatched, this plan involved a road trip, to Ontario!
We only had so many days and we wanted to be at my sisters for Christmas Eve and stay to celebrate my Dad’s 70th birthday so we traveled to London Ontario thru the States and drove non stop, the trip home was done through Ontario and we stopped to sleep every night.
My sister is one of the hardest people to surprise in the world. I wasn’t sure of we would be able to do it. Here’s how the trip to London went…http://youtu.be/7A-RSpwbhbM

Woot Woot! Heading back into Canada!http://youtu.be/H9dTewCaE6I
Has my sister figured it out?http://youtu.be/upPd9BSllKY
We have arrived…http://youtu.be/Rod5P0DQeOY
Here we go…. did we pull it off?http://youtu.be/OthsALMF1uc
We did it! The Trip back home to Calgary through Canada was amazing! Northern Ontario (while HUGE) is just beautiful! The only trouble spot was when we ended up on a ditch about 100K outside Calgary… yours truly was driving a bit too fast for the conditions. A lovely family from Saskatchewan stopped and had a tow strap and a big truck that popped our little car out no problem!
Merry Christmas! 🙂
This is so awesome!! Extremely happy that you made the trip safely both ways and that it was truly a surprise for your family. Wonderful Christmas gift, just like you guys.
Thanks Lisa! I am just sorry we couldn’t swing by and see you!
Sue and Steve’s Excellent Adventure! Glad that you made it there and back relatively unscathed. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Susan, I love how you seize the day, give your all and go for it!
How wonderful for your family!
You are an inspiration!
