Day 33 - 40
I’ve felt a lot of pressure the last few days about getting my blog done. Theres no way I can encapsulate all of the things that happen in one day let alone eight days. I’ll do my best to run through some of the key points, like where I have…
Day 28 - 33
I’ve spent the last 6 days here in Fernie. Today I’ll be leaving heading into Alberta, into the prairies. I was holding onto the last bit of mountains that I could but its time to move on, theres a lot of ground to cover still. Although I’ve been on…
Day 27 - Cranbrook to Fernie
I took my time getting out on the road, today was mostly downhill so I had some time to spare.
For breakfast I went to Timmies, treated by the Solty’s, thanks! And before heading out I loaded up on Mcdonalds, again treated by the…
Day 26 - Creston to Cranbrook - 106km

After chatting a bit I packed my things…
Day 25 - Nelson to Creston - 124km
Left Nelson, finally. Probably a harder thing to do than climbing some of the mountains I’ve encountered.
After taking a week off of cycling getting back on the bike was a challenge, having a headwind all day doesn’t help either!…
Such a wonderful place to be in. In the past week spent here I’ve had an incredible time and met the most amazing people. I can’t go over everything thats happened here but I’ll definitely go over some of the key things. No chronological order.
Nice to meet you…

Day 14 - Still Hanging out in Osoyoos
Waking up at Kevin and Gay’s home was wonderful. They made us coffee and breakfast before we shipped off. After grabbing a picture of Aaron and I fully loaded we hit the streets. I had a few things I needed to get…
Day 13 - Hanging out in Osoyoos
After waking up with a welt on my forehead from my headlamp I packed my gear and said goodbye to Willy. He offered for us to stay with him again that night but Aaron had been in contact with some people from Warm…
Day 12 - Hedley to Osoyoos 70km
Waking up in the valley was such a treat, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever camped in. I cooked some soup and tried to make some cheese balls with the last of my bread and aged cheddar, the soup…
Day 11 - Princeton to Hedley 45km
A late start to an easy day. As a hundred crows circled around Aaron and me we wondered who had been murdered or was about to. They did this for what seemed like a century, the owner of the grounds didn’t believe me…
Day 10 - Manning Park Resort to Princeton - 70km
Continuing from where I left off on yesterdays blog, I had the ice on my knee and was gearing up to leave.

I took my sweet time leaving, getting out of Helen’s place around noon.

My lovely mother dropped me off at the airport at 5am on July 15th. She asked me “Are you excited?” to which I groggily replied “I won’t be excited until I know I’m ready to go, when I get…
