#EscapeAndDiscover with the 2017 Ford Escape: Sarnia to Owen Sound

Weekend road trips are the best kind of adventure, and on Saturday I had a fun trip out of town, right here in Ontario’s glorious back yard thanks to Ford and the 2017 Escape. The real adventure might just be that I had no idea where Ford was going to send me though right up until I left my door, but I knew I was in for something special with their #EscapeAndDiscover weekend.

Over the weekend, Ford took a few writers and photographers out of Toronto to #EscapeAndDiscover parts of Ontario, while getting a chance to check out the new 2017 Ford Escape, Titanium Edition, and what it had to offer. My team–Team Green–was whisked away to Sarnia where we picked up the Escape and drove on to Owen Sound. Read the full story, and scroll down to check out the gallery from each part of the trip.

Woods Canada’s Dream Job winners head home after 5-month of adventures

The trip was a long one for the four travellers, but it came with numerous rewards, including claiming the title of winning the Ultimate Canadian Dream Job. After travelling 17,000 kilometres for five months across the Trans Canada Trail, Woods Canada’s four explorers–Melba Seto & Adam Kochanek and Magee Walker & Cedric Blanchette–made it back to Toronto late last month after an incredible adventure.

Why Canada is road-trip heaven

Vast and diverse, Canada is road-trip heaven from the iconic ride through the Rockies, to looping around Nova Scotia’s Cabot Trail to the tune of Celtic fiddles on the Atlantic coast. According to a January 2015 market research report from the country’s Recreational Vehicle Dealers, the number of RVs hitting the tarmac across the country is growing by more than 4% every year.
