  • The Prairies
  • 4 Great Lakes (Superior, Huron, Erie and Ontario)
  • Canadian Shield, Georgian Bay, French River, St. Laurence Seaway and Fundy tides
  • 8 Provinces (BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia)
  • 4 Time Zones
  • 32 Tesla Charging stations – $365 total cost

Business Accomplished

  • 20 retail partner visits
  • 18 meetings with potential new partners.
  • Secured partnership with PLAEX Building Systems

Recreation along the way

  • Mountain Biking
  • Hiking
  • Paddle boarding

  • Camping

Seeing family and friends in Niagara after 16 months of pandemic travel restrictions – PRICELESS!!
