Vancouver calling Vancouver calling 🙂
Well here I am and to say I am impressed by this jewel on the pacific is an understatement. Journey was a bit grim but what do you expect for (mmm no pound signs, I guess I am using a Jonny Foreigner key board) 250 quid they didn’t even weigh the box with the trailer in it 🙂 stopped at Edmonton and stayed an hour on the tarmac as one passenger had gone AWOL. She was eventually found sitting quietly in her seat, hide in plane sight 🙂 only fly in ointment is the cost of my hostel, shouldn’t complain really as it is right by the water in Jericho for those au fait with Vancouver, what is it with pushy Germans ??? Will stay tomorrow and have a look around then head off on Thursday.
As you may or may not know I an doing my trip on a Thorn Raven, beautiful she isn’t but as reliable as a stone axe, imagine my surprise as I approached the hostel to see another pair of Thorns being assembled. Liz and Phil from gor blimey Landarrrrn town had just arrived as well. “I’ve got one of those” was how I introduced myself. Smashing people and will spend some time with them tomorrow. Hats of to Liz she had never really ridden a bike much before taking on most of South America Chapeau!!!!
A few thank yous : Min Askling (you have mail) Guy and family and Rupert and family the boys from the SSB, love the Blondie lyrics 🙂 Dave Sam and Tristan at the Office, Ed the guitar slinger.
Now to wrestle with my Rohlof cables, oh and before I forget saw a recumbent tandem :-O well it was a bit half and half, guy at front was lying down with a bloke behind him sitting in a conventional position, very odd.
