Oh, it stopped raining

We waited in the tent as long as we could stand it... nearly 12 hours. It was clear at this point we weren't going to be riding any dirt roads, and as we discussed our options, we formulated a plan. Don't be ambitious as to distance, just stay dry, stay on pavement, and get as far as we can until we can find somewhere to hole up and dry our stuff..

Pack down and gear up in the tent. Drybags sealed, and rain gear on before exiting! The last day of our Nova Scotia trip, we had broken camp in the rain, and made the mistake of exiting the tent, then packing our bikes, and then gearing up. Problem was we got soaked under our rain gear the minute we left the tent, so this time was going to be different.

As we were playing twister in the tent, packing everything into the drybags, we hear the sound of the rain change from that light pitter patter, to the wetter twacking of wet snow.
