    A place in Nova Scotia

    If she wants to come a little further East, we have a place, and could suggest some rides (Cabot Trail ring any bells?)

    I can't help with a stay...as I'm inland a bunch. But I do agree with seeing the Great Lakes, and looking at the map...she is so close to the Grand Canyon..!! she's gotta map it in somehow. Hope she enjoy's our country. It is kinda neat.

    BTW...be sure to tell her that when in the west, if she sees gas...buy gas! There can be long stretches without.

    I would encourage her to "push" the route between DC & SC a tad west into the blue ridge mtns/valleys ... WV & TN/NC.
    A ton (like coal) of folks from Poland made the mines of WV their US home in the 30's & 40's...it reminded THEM of home I'm told.

    WOW! What a Trip!

    She has a lot of guts and courage, for a 27 year old young woman. Lots of guys might consider that trip to be a long ride!

    The BC part from Vancouver looks like it goes to Jasper. Did that stretch in 2012. Past Whistler and just past Pemberton, there is a 20kmph left hairpin turn. The entrance is flat, but the turn exit rises steeply. My advice is to enter it at 18 kmph, not 20! She will love Jasper. And Banff, near Calgary.

    I note she is bypassing the Toronto area. Toronto is Canada's largest city and well worth the visit. I'm just west of the international airport, and my wife and I would help out if she gets down our way. PM me if needed.

    It goes without saying that there are a lot of good folks on her route that wish her well. A copy of the Anonymous book would be great for her to have. If she does not have one, perhaps someone on the route could provide last year's copy, if they have not thrown it out yet. You might post a request, if that applies.

    Thank you for kind words, I thank you for the offer, I have direct contact with her at all time, she is riding with my SPOT just in case.
    I will update if the route change in later date, the map is only for a general intrest points.

    I cant find my Anonymous book, If anyone got a spare one and will like to donate it please let me know. We will put it to good use while she is traveling.

    Thank you all,Martin
