Hello, Canada!

We’re in Canada! This is my first time to grace the country with my presence. Ben has visited Montreal once a while back, but it’ll probably be a new experience for the both of us. The plan is to camp out for 2 nights at a Walmart located on the southern end of the city. It has a Metro station across the street which, for $18, will let us access the entire city easily. The three big things on my radar are:

-Old Montreal & Port. Listed in all the guide books & resources I’ve seen, it’s got a lot of history, shops, and cafes.
-The “Underground City” is a bunch of underground shops, businesses, & malls that connect off the Metro.
-The old Olympic Park has an indoor pool that we can use ($4) for exercise & to catch a shower. It has the added benefit of being an environment worthy of our physical prowess.

If you have any recommendations let us know!

Bob MacKenzie: There wasn’t much to do. All the bowling alleys had been wrecked. So’s I spent most of my time looking for beer. Eh’

I have no idea what you’re talking about. If you’re quoting a movie, you should know better! ;)

I do like beer, though.

I hope you’re keeping good notes about all the best Walmart parking lots across North America for camping. You could write a book about it and sell millions. ;-)

Have fun in Canada!

Lol - we’re definitely noticing a trend that the further North we go, the more campers there are. BUT, here in Montreal, we didn’t have any neighbors!

I don’t know if it’s a big city thing or a Canadian thing, but either way, I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough!
