On our way

A journal entry from: Fishes and Bicycles

 We get on the road tomorrow (early) first stop White Rock and then on to Abbotsford to visit Jerry and Tamarack on Tuesday night. We've been staying at my mom's house for the last week putting the final dregs of our stuff into storage, getting ready for the trip and hanging out with our various crews. Victoria is such a great town! Tonight my dad -- who lives in one of the rudest cities in the world: Moscow -- was remarking that everyone says "thank you" as they get off the bus here. Seriously, this is a town full of kind, mellow people. Summer in Victoria rates among my favourite things; the weather is perfect, there is great music and great food. In many respects, it beats the dusty roads and thousands of pedal strokes that lie ahead. We must be crazy.
