    quite possibly the last blog

    August 19, 2014

    Well the ride ended a few days ago and I’ve finally decided I should write one last blog.  I have spent the last few days exploring St. Johns and figured I could wait until the 17 hour ferry ride back to Nova Scotia to actually write something.  This also gave me a little more time to process what exactly it was that I did this...

  • I'll be blogging a short one tonight as I am on the ferry to NFLD and dont have a lot of time as there is a time limit on the computer.  After our night in Halifax (Actually stayed in Lower Sackville) we headed to New Glasgow.  We made it about 130 km before jumping in the van and heading back to Halifax to meet with the minister of...

    PEI and Nova Scotia

    August 12, 2014
    I last bogged about our big seafood dinner in PEI.  That turned out to be the start of a great couple of days on the Island.  On the rest day I was able to connect with a couple of old friends from my silver lake camp days.  Don Mowat and his family live on a dairy farm on the Island and Carey Wood and her husband Jeff decided a...

    Fredericton, Moncton and PEI

    August 10, 2014
    I think my last blog left off in Centreville.  Thanks to Dave again for being such a great host.  Dave sent us off with pretty much everything you could think of from crackers, beer, macaroons, and a bag of new potatoes.  We left Centreville and headed for Fredericton.  We had originally mapped out a route that was about 125...

    New Brunswick

    August 7, 2014
    After a great stay in St. Pascal we headed for New Brunswick.  I was excited to get into the east coast, I have been viewing this as the last leg of the journey and I'm looking forward to riding in the eastern provinces.   We rode about 160km into Edmundston NB.  It was a great ride, with great weather.  We basically took...

    Quebec City and St. Pascal

    August 5, 2014
    One of the rest days I was looking forward to the most was the day in Quebec City.  We left Trois Riviere in good time after a great breakfast at the bed and breakfast and made our way to Quebec.  It was a great ride into Quebec city and was not hard to navigate as hwy 138 basically took me all the way there.  It was another hot...

    Laval and Trois Riviere's

    August 2, 2014
    We left Lachute a little later than planned and headed on a short ride to Laval.  Svend decided to join for the short ride to Laval and then he planned to have John drive him back to Lachute for his reunion.  We arrived in Laval in time to find a bike shop and get my gear shifter replaced.  After spending 179.00 it was fixed and...

    We arrived in Ottawa on July 29.  We actually only rode to Stittsville about 25 km outside downtown Ottawa which I was thankful for after a late night.  The last week was super busy with a number of events and I would not have changed that at all but it made for a tired few days riding.  The ride to Stittsville was just over...
  • So its been a few days since I last blogged so sorry for that if you are following along.  This stretch of the ride has been quite busy.  I'll start back in Kitchener for this blog.  We had a wonderful event there that raised close to 4000.00 towards the ride.  It was an extra special event for me as I was able to see a lot...

    Well its been a few days since I've blogged.  I've had limited access to internet and have also been busy with my children so that's been great.  After a great night in Blind River I was on the road again and had been debating trying another 200 km day which would bring me right to South Baymouth and the ferry to Tobermory.  This...
