Hey buddy, I envy you. Wishing you a safe trip and post often so we know what's going on.
As Marissa said, you're crazy!
As Karim said, get back safely so that I can kick your ass at poker.
Thanks for stopping by Ashif. I'll be trying to post pictures and diary entries on a daily basis. Not sure yet if that will be feasible, but thats what i'm shooting for. Ok, gotta get back to packing now...the journey starts less than 12 hours from now.

Congratulations on your first day of your 2 1/2 month trip! I'm glad you made it through without any major problems. Can't wait to hear about tomorrow and see the photos!

cool feeling, ait it? :)
Must feel sort of cool to be on your way, finally!? :)
I've seen your first day's photos, they look great! Especially the one pic of that view from a beach with Carl in foreground.. what's the lake's name?
Sucks I couldn't join you for a round of beer in Hope, though. If only it wasn't for this work.. grrr. :mad:

Un gros Bonjour de France
It is a very good idea to visiting your own country before visit some others, and this ride will prepare you for "le tour de France" even if is not like a professionnel.
So, every body here follow you in this trip across Canada.
We are proud of you and a little bit jalous!
Bonne continuation !
Monique et Bruno

Sorry I was not there to see you guys go. Try and visit as many "Tims" and Star$" as you can!
All the best.

I'm glad to see that beer has become a ritual at the end of every day. It should help relax all your tired muscles.
While you are riding you should be singing the song from Team America...except change it to "Canada, #@$% yeah! "
Happy that you are all very pleased with your achievements thus far. We are all pleased about them too. And excited to read tomorrow's update.

Glad you are doing well...
I guess you answered my mom's quetion (What happens if you get a leg cramp?)
We are all excited for you, and will certainly be checking up to see where you are.
All the best!!

Keep it up
Hey guys. I'm sure you'll feel the cramping during the first little bit after which your body gets used to it and it'll all be "downhill" from there. Keep it up and look forward to your next post.
P.S. Forget the legs, how's your ass?
P.P.S. Henry, Karim and I hit Riverrock last night. Practicing for your return.
