Getting Started

We have been slowly getting our gear in. Bobby has made the most progress in acquiring some new items. I am lagging behind. At the moment I don't even have a suitable bike for the trip. Along with going over gear lists and a thousand hypothetical problems we are also solidifying our route across Canada. So far we have agreed on May and to start on Vancouver Island. We figure a trip around the island will help us work out any major kinks in the bikes and how the gear sits before passing Vancouver on our way to the mountains. Some photos are on their way. At the moment we are approximately 9 weeks out from leaving. I feel the energy build up in the three of us. Very exciting!

P.S. I threw in a picture of a bike the same as Bobby's.

First of Many or Some

Okay, this is our first post. There are three of us that will be posting to this blog and two of them need to be taught how to use Blogger. Once that is figured out the posts should start happening. We will be leaving for our cross Canada bicycling trip around May. At that time this blog will mainly be a photoblog documenting our progress. Until then we will try to keep people updated on the planning stages of our trip.

We will be fundraising for The Canadian Cancer Society on this trip .If you are interested in donating please click the donate link at the top of the page.
