Since the beginning, it has annoyed me that I will spend on this time and effort travelling across every province and territory. Except Nunavut, which I can't get into by road. A chance conversation with a sales rep in a motorcycle store brought us around to this and he said he had family in Nunavut and he's pretty sure they would be open to hosting me if I could get myself in there, and maybe even arrange for a dirt bike or something to explore with for a day or two! I warned him that I would take him up on that and have begun taking another look at getting to Nunavut by plane and toodling around a bit. Decided even if his familly wants nothing to do with me, I'm probably going to do it anyway. I feel a little surge of excitement at being able to complete this adventure fully!
The sudden death of my sister in a fatal car accident on February 14, 2018 has left a big hole in my heart. She was very excited about this adventure I am going on and we had many long talks about where to go and what I might see and the people I will meet. We had conversations about how the media in general and social media, in particular, is so full of negativity and divisiveness. One of the things I look forward to most on this journey is discovering that in most cases, if you take the politics, religion and geography out of conversations, people are just people. I am so dreadfully disappointed that she will not be able to follow me for the portion of our trip we had planned, but will certainly take her along in my heart.
Hi. My name is Alyson. In 2018, I started this blog as I completed a 27,000 km motorcycle trip through every province and territory of Canada.
