It’s now the afternoon before I undertake part one of this road trip. The car is nearly packed, with the exception of my clothes, however it seems that nearly all of my worldly possessions will be able to fit.
Farrah has an estimated combined fuel economy of approximately 6.5L/100km (36mpg). However, she will be weighed down with a fair amount of stuff – clothes, cosplays, my other worldly possessions – not to mention the fact that the landscape north of Sudbury, ON is notoriously full of hills. It is more likely I will have an observed fuel economy between 7.5-8L/100km (29-31mpg).
I have one planned stop to see the Wawa Goose, which is in a town called Wawa, ON (surprise), approximately an hour north of Sault Ste. Marie, ON.
It’s a giant goose, so I might slip on a cosplay for a selfie with the goose.
