As you can tell from the map, we haven't made it all THAT far at the end of day one, but we have in fact crossed into Canada.
Also, turns out we have a lot of shit.
Why in the world do we have so much stuff?
Getting from the car to the hotel was comical. Bag carts, multiple trips, bags bags and more bags, and then there's this.
Yes you are seeing that correctly.
That is a 5 gallon bucket with a battery powered air stone, and two fancy goldfish.
What? Doesn't everyone bring their goldfish on their 7 day relocation road trip?
I know what you're thinking I'm insane, but listen. I've had fish for almost my entire life, and in college when I couldn't get a dog I picked the one type of fish that when cared for correctly can live 15-20 years. Yes, if your goldfish dies after two weeks, then you did something wrong.
These two (Diego and Plath, yes I named them) are almost four years old.
You don't just flush four years of water changes and algae scrubbing in the toilet because you are moving from Washington to Alaska.
You get a bucket, and you make that shit work.
So, as you can imagine, this whole journey is hard enough with two people, a ton of shit, and two dogs. Throw in two goldfish that need to have their air stone going, some of their water changed nightly, and a relatively un-stressful (HAHAHAH) environment, and you have yourself a PARTY my friends!
If we make it to Anchorage in one piece, it will be a miracle.
But we made it to Canada, so at least we got through step one.
Stay tuned for tomorrow.
Maybe there will even be moose.
And the excitement builds…
