Inmates, OK, here is the beginning of a story of how a simple 10 day trip to Newfoundland and Labrador has turned to a month long wander of two Canucks exploring their neighbours land and culture south of the border in the good ol' US of A..........accompanied by a camera man.:huh Last fall I was making plans to head to Labrador on the TLH and then across the island of Newfoundland back to my hometown of St. John's from Saint John, New Brunswick. Simple, relatively easy, right? Well I mention this to my good friend Pete, who by the way doesn't ride anymore, he doesn't even have a motorcycle license. Pete thinks this is great idea and unbeknownst to me mentions this to our other friend Greg, who just happens to own Hemmings House Pictures, a film/TV production company. Before long I find myself in the middle of my own "Long Way Round" or "Mondo Enduro" More of a Mondo Enduro I think, neither one of us is a famous actor, and we won't be getting free bikes from BMW, with a fully equipped entourage. Fast forward a few months and the plan has now changed to a cross country trip thru the USA. Two middle-aged, family guys trying to relive their lost youth and find some adventure along the way. Since both of us have jobs, families, and do not have the luxury of taking an entire month off, we are gonna do 2 to 3 weeks at a time, then come back and finish up later. Anyway, Greg, the producer, aka media mogul seems to think this would make an interesting TV show, 13, 30min episodes. Personally I do not see why anyone would want to tune in and see my sorry ass on the TV, but what do I know, I'm just a pilot. Maybe a TV station in South America or India might pick it up and I'll be spared the embarrassment of having my friends, or you f#@kers of seeing it. Although the more I think of it, I never thought anyone would want to watch a bunch of bitchy, whiny, rich women from Beverly Hills either. My wife sure enjoys it. The plan is to ship the bikes (most likely KLR 650's) to San Diego and start out there in Mid to late August, so we can hit the Burning Man festival in Nevada, then head a little further north before venturing southeast, eventually making our way to New Orleans. In the spring of 2014 we plan to pick it up again and head for Key West, and then up the east coast thru the Appalachians to eventually finish in Halifax, Nova Scotia or St. John's NF. Once this trip is all confirmed and officially a go, I'll be starting a RR, and be updating as we go along. If it all falls apart, f@#k it, I'll go back to what my original plan was, and head for The Labrador and the The Rock.
