Go West Young Men (and woman)

After much debate- and a lot of shin kicking (I’m looking at you Cameron Davis!) –  it’s been settled.

We’re heading west!

It means we’ll spend the first few weeks of our trip exploring Western Canada. It’ll be a mix of places in our own country that I’ve wanted to show them and I hope they’ll gain a true appreciation of how great a country this is.

It also means we had to scrap all of the plans we had made for an eastern departure and tackle the continents we thought we didn’t need to worry about until next year  – South America and Asia among them- now.

So yes, we are a little busy…but we’re also excited.




Things aren’t final but I can tell you that our new itinerary leaves us plenty of room for adventure, gives us time in places we’ve dreamed of and stays true to our Hidden Agenda.

Thanks to all of you for weighing in and hope you’ll continue to do so as we prepare to hit the road.

Only 2.5 months to go!

Oh, yay! West wins! And that’s the cutest photo ever.

Exciting to finally have it decided! Thanks for weighing in. The boys are wearing official Calgary Stampede hats courtesy of the TMAC conference in Ottawa. Can’t wait to get them to a ranch!

Glad you’re heading West Heather. Such fun!


Heather Greenwood Davis April 18, 2011, 12:32 PM

And the best part is even though I’m going West, I get to the “East” eventually too. This is going to be an amazing trip. :)


Amy April 18, 2011, 8:32 PM

West or east, you really can’t lose (even though I voted east.) I can’t believe you leave so soon. Exciting!


Heather April 18, 2011, 6:47 PM

Totally agree. It was a win-win.

That photo is absolutely too cute! Western Canada sounds great. I’ve only visited Ontario (Toronto) and Quebec (Montreal, Gaspe). Definitely want to visit the west as well one day.

Thanks Diane. Hope you do get out there one day. It’s a gorgeous part of the country. I’m excited that I’ll be able to tempt you to go a little bit more as we travel.

Heather, if you need any help at all with your West Coast itinerary, please just let me know…


Heather Greenwood Davis April 19, 2011, 1:02 PM

Oh there’s a post coming about just that thing! Short story: You will be called upon! :)


Emiel April 19, 2011, 11:22 AM

Come on, come on, come on, come on

(Together) We will go our way
(Together) We will leave someday
(Together) Your hand in my hands
(Together) We will make our plans

(Together) We will fly so high
(Together) Tell all our friends goodbye
(Together) We will start life new
(Together) This is what we’ll do

(Go West) Life is peaceful there
(Go West) In the open air
(Go West) Where the skies are blue
(Go West) This is what we’re gonna do

(Go West, this is what we’re gonna do, Go West)

Have fun. Wise decision you have made (Yoda wisdom)


Heather Greenwood Davis April 19, 2011, 1:02 PM

I am singing right along with you, probably out of tune, but singing all the same. Feels good to have at least that decision set!


Leslie April 22, 2011, 4:52 PM

This is so exciting! I am just thrilled for you all.


Heather April 23, 2011, 6:21 PM

Thank you! So glad you’ll be *along* for the ride as we go. :)

Will hit UK in the Spring and would love that.
