    Loved the knitters frolic on Saturday. Is it possible to pick me up at the car park beside the casino in Gananoque? It’s an easy off/on exit & entry for the bus.

      Glad to know you enjoyed the Knitters Frolic coach trip, Donna. I will have to get back to you about the Gananoque stop! Take care.

    Oh I hear this is so fun. Do you go through Ottawa? I live near the airport but could meet the bus anywhere. I’m sure I could scare up a few others to hop on too. 😀

    Thanks Jodi. I will ask about possible Ottawa stops.

      Hiya, I was wondering if there’s any chance of an Ottawa pick up/drop off. Thanks!
