Hi mARToons fan! The Gravel Grind I was telling you about a few days ago is now over.


I have completed the wonderful THIS IS CANADA scenery part and arrived in Sudbury, Ontario.


Back to civilization for a few weeks.


The final comment is a travel tip: If you are doing a driving trip, be concerned about eating decent food.


Get a cooler, an ice pack, and load up daily with fruit and veggies.


The best appliance to take along is a rice cooker because you may not be able to cook in your hotel room but there will always be an electrical outlet.


You can cook oatmeal in the cooker for breakfast, and rice for lunch and dinner. You can throw veggies in with the rice and it will cook them nicely too.
