Thanks a bunch. If hauling ass isn't your cup of tea make sure you get as much time off as you can for the trip. The country is just too big and ripping through it, as I found out, can't do it justice. I could have spent two weeks just exploring Ontario. No regrets though; I had the time of my life.Nice report, now I'm jealous. Someday I'll get out to BC on the bike, someday.
Pattman, thanks for the ride report. I know the feeling you got when you left for the trip by yourself. Kinda scary but well worth it. QUOTE]
The best piece of advice I gave myself was to just get on with it and let what happens happen. I really didn't shit myself until after I got home; about a few days later I actually realized what I did. Here is a guy who never rode a bike before in his life and, a year after throwing a leg over a bike, was riding across the country. It's kind of like falling in love. You'll probably have a few loves in your life but nothing will compare to that very first one.
I've got my friends in Kelowna wanting me to move there. They've even found a little shop front and want me to start a hippy-boeheimein coffee shop. Considering that I work with metal and my home brew coffee is like tar I'm thinking that it's not a great idea. The coffee, not the moving. If I could find a nice little sheet metal shop looking for a shop fabricator I'd be there in a heartbeat.Good job! Except you guys have to stop telling everyone about how great it is here...too many tourists :mrgreen:
