Perhaps 200km yesterday around the western part of Prince Edward Island. The propensity in rural parts of the Island for choosing GM, Ford, and Chrysler products was relatively surprising. One average town showed me two Japanese cars. No other car was anything but domestic American. We drove to the northern most part of the Island to feel carbon neutral, with the sight of a couple dozen wind turbines along with the sight of fuel gauge in the V6-engined vehicle dropping. Ice flows took the place of meeting tides. Snow was melting quickly and the grass will soon begin to grow green, but we had the ability to walk out for dozens of metres onto the ocean.

Some vehicles had begun their chemical breakdown, as UV, saltwater, red dirt, and animals had their way. The local Tignish Shore Volkswagen museum displayed a lovely quartet of Jettas, as seen at right.
