My worry now is that I will loose the level of fitness I have been trying so hard to maintain. It is hard enough to stay fit under normal circumstances, at home, near a gym, and not injured, but injured I am, and traveling again. I just don’t wa... Read more

We loaded up our car yesterday for this two week jaunt east. The truck traffic on the 401 is astonishing. These drivers have a speed governor on their vehicles and stay in their lanes, but many drivers do not give them room when passing. This tr... Read more
