Our Journey

Our journey

“Mann Tracht, Un Gott Lacht” is an old Yiddish adage meaning, “Man Plans, and God Laughs. So here is our plan, we’ll see how much laughter follows. We will start at the Peace Arch at the Canadian Border on September 9 and end at the border to Tijuana, Mexico on October 18. In between, there will be a few challenges, great adventures, much beauty, and a lot of quality seat time.
