2002 Summer Trip Index
This is a trip I had been contemplating from some time. After touring New Zealand in 2000, I have been wondering how to do another trip, by myself. On the NZ trip, I have seen that I can do 400-600km per day, without being tired out. I have done the trip from Toronto to Fredericton, 1400km one way, in one day both by motorcycle and car. Always on main highways, never stopping for anything but to fill the vehicle's fluids, or empty ours. And that was not real fun or relaxing.
So, for this trip, I'm planning on staying off of main roads, doing no more than 600km per day, doing all driving in daylight. I will stop often for pictures and Cokes tm.
You can check the planned and actual route below.
