Virtual Travels Weeks 9&10

In virtual travel news, Midge and I journeyed for 11 hours, or about 142 km/88 mi* in the past two weeks. That's slightly less than our norm, and short of our new fitness regime goals,  but I really, really, needed the 4 day vacation I took with the ever awesome G last weekend!

Our virtual miles have now taken us through Seattle, through to the Federal Way, WA area. I was tempted to detour to Vashon Island, since I hear it is very horse friendly, but I think for now we'll keep on heading south down the West Coast.





Perhaps as the miles add up, one day soon we will both be slightly less puffy (and fluffy!) :)

Check out our travel website/mapping app here.



*Midge also got ridden by WS while I took a time out, so she's still on task and probably put in 30-40 k or so without me. She's badass like that.

    2. It's funny, on all those drives from Lloydminster and Edmonton to the coast and back the past few years I always fantasize about riding my bike or pony instead - it's so gorgeous! So in a way I almost felt like I'd been there/done that and I needed a change! I think 2017 should be the year of the cross Canada virtual trip though! Saskatoon is as far as I've made it in real life and we live in an amazing country.

    1. I've taken her to the real beach once and she was actually pretty chill, but not overly fond of the waves

    1. She tried it for real once and declined a second helping :) However, fir tree branches and assorted leaves and mosses are apparently quite tasty. Pretty sure we could set her free anywhere and she would eat random things and stay fat!
