On Boxing Day (that’s December 26th, for those of you in North America that aren’t Canadians), the fam and I visited my wife’s cousin’s family (does this sound like a Ferris Bueller thing?) who live on a little island off the east coast of Vancouver Island in Canada. Getting there requires a one-and-a-half hour ferry ride crossing Howe Sound, which can be a good or bad thing. I wound up making part of each leg (there and back) a good thing by working on Trekker. Don’t have a word count, but the plot moved along (serious decision time for our intrepid group of Explorers).
