I'd just like to introduce myself first. My name's Zach, I'm a graduating senior from Southern New Jersey. For my friends and I, this is our final summer before we part ways to get on with life. A few of us are going upstate, a few out west and I'm enlisting in the US Coast Guard. This summer is our last hurrah, for all intents and purposes. In celebration, we've already done, and planned quite a few events. From massive manhunt games in the woods to long distance canoe and camping trips, we've got quite a summer ahead of us.
But that's not good enough. We want one more, something big.
Thus, the crazy idea of a roadtrip was planned. It started as "Hey, let's just wander New Jersey!", to "Well, why not goto upstate New York or something...", and now it has reached, "Aw heck, lets' goto Canada!"
And so, here we stand. We want to make the 450 mile trip up to Ottawa this summer. We really don't know how many cars to bring or how many people are planning on coming. We'd like to have one of the cars be my 1964 Chevelle station wagon. Sure she's old, but she's tough, strong, reliable and big. Aside from that, we don't have much planned yet in the way of getting there.
So, how about it? Five 18 year olds, fresh out of highschool. The farthest any of us have driven is to Philly and back, and we'd be taking a fifty year old car (albeit a very well maintained fifty year old car) 450 miles from home into another country.
Any advice, thoughts or plans to stop us would be greatly appreciated and probably required.
