Summer 2003 Road Trip

Chronicled by Markus Wandel, with contributions from others as noted in italics.

Here is the chronicle of a road trip taken by Andrew, Luc, Caroline, Ewart, Peter and myself in the summer of 2003. The trip was, as always, capably organized by Andrew. Usually we fly to the destination area and then rent vehicles. This time we set out directly from Ottawa, in a rental van and my car. I agreed to this because I wanted, finally, to experience the vast size of this continent by driving a good deal of the way across it.

This is my perspective on the whole thing. You can also read Andrew's writeup.
