For those travelers who are interested in problem-solving and information technology, this is especially good.

For those of us in Canada, and particularly those with a relaxed "just find a route that's good enough" attitude (no points of interest considered), there is a simple solution to the all-provinces routing:
  1. Start at one side of the country
  2. Drive the Trans-Canada Highway (T-C) to the other side
  3. If circle route desired, turn around and go back on alternate T-C path

There's a 177 km (110 mi) ferry ride in there.

Hitting the territories as well is a considerably greater challenge, both for routing and for driving.

Love it and going to travel the Canadian way first, thank you. Looking forward to doing this in our future. Picking up our new Escape early this summer.
