I've driven exactly that route a few years ago - Sydney to Chicago (as part of a larger trip)

Yeah I greatly simplified it by factoring in the closest part of the border to me, which is the one with Michigan

You should have let me know. I could have come out and 'waved' to you

The amount of time I go and read a thread I'm not following, only to find several posts deleted and/or thread closed ....

It was around 5 years ago, I wasn't on BE much around then, passed through Moncton on the way out to Sydney and on the way back from PEI. I started the trip in San Francisco - it was a big road trip!

Back in 1975 me and a mate came to Canada and stayed with his dad who lived in Saint John. He drove us on a week's trip through NB, onto PEI, then to Nova Scotia where we did the Cabot Trail then back through NB to Saint John.

On the outward part we stopped in Moncton for some 'supplies' which was mostly bacon. Who'd have thought that 30 years later...

That's pretty weird

I motorcycled the Cabot Trail, good experience.

I've got a stupid head cold and cough. I've been in bed most of today feeling close to death!! Slight exaggeration but I'm pissed off. Every bone in my skull was aching this afternoon, I could have quite happily made like Anne Boleyn

It's good to see altruism and charity still forming part of UK society.

GE day - ballot papers posted out 20th November, not received. Second set posted out 6th December, not received. Plenty of other post from the UK though, all received within 3 days of posting. Luckily my constituency has a massive majority so my vote wouldn't have counted for much - but the opportunity would have been nice.
