Given the number of new followers to our trek we have begun to receive a lot of new emails and messages requesting a link to our blog for Come Walk With Us so that people can read from the beginning in 2018 when we began our planning, chose our gear (so many changes this this moment), sold the house and set out from Cape Spear Newfoundland in 2019!    Here it is:  Come Walk With Us Blog.  From this link you can feel free to start at the beginning or navigate to a specific region whether your interests involve the trails of Newfoundland , Nova Scotia , Prince Edward Island , Quebec , Ontario, or Eastern Manitoba .
