I would never "bail out" on you. I know I am tardy with comments but I am reliable in that I check into your RR every day to see your lovely photos and commentary. I know it's hard to travel alone to a far away place where you don't understand the language and try to make do and I am sure we all appreciate the time it takes for you to post on here.
I am envious of your trip but I am not an adventurer. I don't think I am capable of riding where you have been so I am content to just read and imagine being right by your side.
I am also not a fan of Winter but I suppose that we are in the best place as far as places to live in Canada. Except for our frost which burns off by noon, you are able to "nearly" ride all year round, just not commute when you leave for work early.
I can sense some frustration in your latest words. You have lots of moral support from all of us and thank you very much for bring us along and showing us "your" way
