Canada or Bust

Here we go..........

I was going to close down my blog for the duration of our trip, but Briar had a good idea. I am going to keep tabs on how much gasoline we use and how much it will cost us for the entire trip. Can you guess how much gas and how much it will cost???? A hint the FJ uses between 10-12 gallons per mile (pretty crummy I know). We are traveling from Llano, Ca. to Port Angeles, Wash, to Manning P...

My son and DIL are having their dog Barnaby DNA tested to see what breeds of dog are in Barnaby. All the family have put in their guesses, now it is your turn :))
