And so it begins…….

FINALLY we are on the road…..and now for our first blog post. The trip started well with a night at Thom’s in Kamloops. Delicious.. I know I said I was not going to post what I had for breakfast. We headed off to the Two Dude Ranch to drop off the truck and more stuff.

We have had two fantastic days of mostly sunny and very scenic riding. We stayed on Lac La Hache last night and then just north of Vanderhoof tonight. To those that scoffed that I brought suture material…..didn’t make it 1 day and I already needed it. Thank you so much to all of you that have supported us in pursuit of this dream!
