On the Road Again

It’s -15C in Calgary today, snowing, blowing and flippin’ freezing! Rather than wait for spring to arrive, we are hitting the road for another cycling trip. Thanks, Curtis and Gerrick, for attaching the new ladder and bike rack to the rear of the van. So sorry about your frozen fingers.

If all else goes well, tomorrow we head south, along the Pacific Coast to San Diego — in search of sunshine, heat and adventure along the backroads of the southern US. The route will take us through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama –all the way to Florida. In  total, about 6,500 km.

I’m ssouthern-tier-mapo looking forward to spending my days in the saddle, meeting new people, seeing new places and experiencing the beer, barbecue and bourbon for which the south is known. I’ll update this blog every week as a way to keep in touch with friends and family back home.

See y’all soon!
