Vacation time

See you in five weeks. Hoping the Tiger can get the job done. ��


The trusty mule, loaded and ready.


My office for the next five weeks. My brother insisted I take his Garmin. I prefer my paper.

Riding from Pickering, Ontario to the Arctic Circle via the Haul Road, then various exciting points south. Hoping to get to D2D, as well. The ride west will be entirely within Canada, the return trip through the USA. It's the ride of my life; if I don't do it now, I likely never will.

I'm two days in at this point. I'll try to post brief daily updates, as long as I can find wifi.

I vote for Bust. I hear great things about France, and was smitten with Europe when I went over there.

Edit: Really looking forward to following your adventure, wherever it takes you ;)

Whoah! Thanks for the replies. I'm not sure if I can live up to expectations, but I'll try.

Tuesday June 7, 71,911 Pickering to Wawa. A bit chilly, some rain from Barrie to Parry Sound, heavy headwind from Espanola to Sault. Ste. Marie. One bear sighting in Agawa Bay, 957km.



The Tiger is running like a good soldier. Comfortable and plenty of juice, but bloody heavy all loaded up. Even so, the wind was tossing the bike around like a toy. It became tiring after a while.

A couple of pics in Wawa:

Uhh...camping, Shane? More like tenting. No cooking. But on cold nights like this one, a motel will do. I might be hearty, but I'm not foolhardy.

I left on new pair of K60s. I expect them to go the distance.

I'll ride the Dalton, the Haul Road, to the Arctic Circle. Not interested in Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay, there is simply nothing there but a two hundred dollar motel room.

That's a good first day. I was out all afternoon underdressed. I hope it warms up for you. Who's handling your weather file? You want I should alert MacDoc?

I look up at the sky in the morning, then make an appropriate choice. Bloody cold this morning, 2°. I believe it'll be warmer heading west.
