Now that Joe Biden has been elected the president of the USA, once he is sworn in on January 20th, 2021, I am expecting him to make a more aggressive fight against COVID-19. Once that happens the COVID-19 cases in the USA will go down, and by July 1st, 2021 the Canadian border will reopen. When that happens, I will fulfill my plan to do something that I had planned to do in 2019, take a road trip.
Where will I take this road trip? It’s obvious after mentioning the president elect, I plan to take this road trip to go across the Northeastern USA. I don’t know if my contract here in Taiwan will be renewed or not (I hope it will), but once I head to Canada in July 2021, I will get my car ready for this trip. All I need is to take the winter tires off and buy a set of new regular tires and then I’m all good.
My aunt who is 84 years old used to live in New York City, she now lives with her daughter in Stroudsburg, PA just down Interstate 80. I plan to visit them there after I never went to visit them there in 10 years. (They saw me in Montreal, Canada in 2017-2018). I owe them a visit, and while I am there, I want to see New York again. But to get to New York, I may have to either drive into the city and park my car to take the subway into lower Manhattan, or I would have to take a commuter train from Dover, NJ and ride it to Penn Station in New York.
After Stroudsburg, I plan to drive to Hartford, CT to visit my other aunt there. I last saw here in Montreal 2 to 3 years ago. I haven’t visited here there in 10 years as well and I owe her a visit. Once I am there I can also go and visit Boston. It’s a 1 hour drive from Hartford in fact, I have never been to Boston before.
From Boston, MA I will go back to Canada, but I need to make up my mind on whether or not I want to drive to Eastern Canada to see St. John, NB, Prince Edward Island, and Halifax, NS, or if I should just go to Montreal where my aunt lives. The drive from Boston to St. John, NB is 6 hours, Fundy National Park is around 7. If I drive to Montreal from Halifax, that will be 13 hours. But going from Boston to Montreal is 5 hours (although I plan to see Sherbrooke, QC. Another place where I haven’t been).
So yes, I will decide on this road trip, I got plenty of time to decide. I’m really looking forward and I can’t wait! However if the Canadian border is not open yet by July 2021, I will just do a road trip into Northern Ontario, Northern Quebec, and down to Montreal, and take a flight to see my aunt in Edmonton AB.
BTW I still have my membership with the CAA.
