    Well, I'm almost totally packed, I've just confirmed my reservations, and the Versys is drooling the last of its oil into a pan in the garage. So far, so good.

    I'm heading out tomorrow morning to ride out to BC. My last trip ended abruptly when I wiped out on a muddy road outside of Clearwater. This time, I've got different goals. My sister and her family no longer live in Victoria so I'm not planning to head there; instead I'm meeting up with a good friend who I met on my last trip and we're going to spend a couple of days riding around northern BC before I head south and run back home.

    I'm riding a different bike this year, too - a 2012 Versys 650, and it's carrying a LOT less luggage. :D

    I'll probably do this RR the same way I did the last one - a general outline and a couple of pictures while I'm on the road, and a rehash with more pictures and better descriptions once I get back.

    But... there's more packing to do and a bike to get ready. If all goes well, my next post will be from another town!

    In Valemount all is well. Saskatchewan and Alberta were very wet and cold, I was giving it one more day and if the weather didn't change I was going to turn around.

    The Versus is running great and really eating up the miles.

    Rockies were amazing as always (lots of construction all over the place).

    More later, must eat...
