Well we have been here for a few days now but not had any internet access until now so thought we would put a few words on now while we have a chance if anyone still cares
The drive over was fantastic some parts were long and boring but we stopped off many times and went into some small places and spoke to some locals (hicks)
It was when we were nearly into Ontario though before we saw the wildlife we were looking for like Bears and Moose one Bear even walked across the road in front of us
One last thing to tell you so you can all have a good laugh Susan just cost me $512!!!!
How i hear you ask on the first night at Jen & Jers she tripped off the deck and tore a ligament so that meant 4 hours in casualty and the credit card took a battering $462 just to walk in the door and $50 to see a doctor thats the last time i complain about the NHS

bear hugs anyone?
Hi y'all We are so pleased that you are having a good time, give or take a few torn ligaments along the way....... SUSAN WHAT ARE YOU LIKE????? We finally got broadband up and running, give or take a few dodgy wireless connections along the way......so have finally been able to catch up with what you have been up to in earnest. I'm dead jealous that you have seen Bears and Mooses (one moose; several muce? Meece? Mooses does not sound right. Please write in with suggestions), and glaciers and cars that have muscles (oooh doctor!). Was it really the night rider 'Kit' car or a sub-standard-metallic-look-a-like? Anyway news about us: We're, um, in Edinburgh, having moved into our new flat yippee. This did not go without its hitches but we're glad to have finally got settled. Its still wierd, having all these creature comforts, having been without them for 8 months. We have not seen much of Rosa and Zora, who retreat to the vast spaces that count as their bedrooms and do 'stuff' like painting and modelling (no not that kind of modelling Dean). Why? Because they can!! Em still has not got a start date for her job but is expecting one imminently. I'm still looking, having had 2 job interviews and been turned down for both, boo hiss. Just had another interview this morning and one more booked for next week. I am most certainly giving my old suit a run for its money, although I wish it could speak up more and fidget less when asked all those questions about social work. Zora now has a place in James Gillespies High School next year. Hooray! Rosa does not have a place anywhere. Boo. Still waiting to hear though. Fingers crossed, or else its a trip to see Mr Nigel Griffith MP. To say Oy! Griffiths! etc. We are off down to Macclesfield for the weekend to see Emma's sister Kate, with white van and return with more of our stuff. Keep on truckin' dudes lots of love Colin

I was wondering where you got to
Sorry to hear about your extra trip Susan! Is one trip at a time not enough? Enjoy what's left, if you can. Adele x
