Yes it was great meeting you too. The ride through the ice fields parkway was spectacular. I have been that route many times but it has always been cloudy, foggy, rainy or snow. This was the fist rime I had gone that way in sunshine. Also loved the ride from Sask River to Nordegg. Was thinking of your David Thompson story all the way down that route to RMH. After that it is basically back to the real world which is nice too, but just a few less oooos and ahhhhs.

Snow and ice are here so starting to plan some rides for next year.

I really enjoyed meeting you guys, we did ride in some challenging rain together on our way into Golden. The storys were great, and truely one of the great parts of meeting others on the road.

Although the "At supper we were noticed by a guy who was all alone at an adjacent table." makes me sound a little pathetic :) but I'll take it :)

I followed you guys out to Rocky, where my mother resides and stayed overnight there. I do not have the luxury of heated vests/clothing as most of this trip was in the southren states (+42C).

I stopped at the Saskatchewan River Crossing to warm up and get some food. $21.00 for a hot dog and fries was a bit steep, but it was one of the best I have ever had.

My lovely wife and I are planning a motorcycle trip out east for this year, we may have to meet up again. I'll keep in touch...

Good job on the Ride Report...

Pie is an art, a fine mix of crust and filling. Like beer there is actually no bad pies, just variations of good.

Best crust was actually not a pie but a butter tart in The Copper Eagle cafe and bakery in Greenwood, BC

The best pie overall was an apple pie (fresh apples were in season) from Billy's Restaurant in Princeton, BC

Planning our next trip. Will be circumnavigating the Great Lakes. We leave July 20th and have 2 weeks, Time may be tight but will adjust as we go.

Going to try a new travel strategy. Right now we sort of follow 5pm or 500 km rule of thumb and usually plan our destination in the morning. This trip I am not going to plan our daily destination until later in the day so we are not trying to hurry and miss something.

Will see how it plays!
