Anybody in Cranbrook?

A couple of weary travellers are looking for a bed for the night. Ed March and Rachel Lasham are crossing Canada from west to east on C90s. They're cool peeps and lots of fun. If you can help hit them up on FB.

Well, I guess Ed's done everything else so why not freeze to death?!
It's been pretty mild west of the Rockies, but I doubt that trend will continue with the rest of the country.

The mild weather seems to be sticking around. Just drove from Northern Alberta to Southern Ontario a couple days ago, coldest temp East of Edmonton was -2, daytime highs around +4. Weird winter so far.

Yes, they're heading east across Canada during the winter Ed has done something similar before travelling past the Arctic Circle in Norway in winter. They're prepared for cold temps and are actually looking forward to them
Say "Hi" (and give them a warm drink) if you see them.

well I wish them a Merry Christmas! I hope they have a nice place to stay tonight, xmas eve. Cowgirl, how did you meet them?
When I was in my early 30's I would winter ski camp lots, in temps as low as minus 25 so I know it can be done
I would like to follow their journey, where do they post?

I met them through the FB network. They were looking for a place to stay in Vancouver and friends of friends posted, you know how it works. They stayed with me for a couple of days before heading down to White Rock to another friend who had a garage where they could work on their bikes. You can find them on FB. Rachel has a blog http://wanderonahonda.co.uk/ and Ed has a website http://www.c90adventures.co.uk/
They're not too up to date though
They're trying to stay off the #1 as much as possible and they're heading for Nova Scotia. After that they'll head south then they want to ride the TAT back eastward. They want to be back in Seattle in June for the Touratech rally - Ed is speaking there.
Their long term goal is Argentina.

PS Looks like they made it to Canmore today.
