Nothing starts off a great ride report better than internet explorer deciding to shit the bed after writing out a massive and nice done intro...:fyyff you Microsoft. Anyway back to the point. I've moved around my whole life, between Europe and Canada several times, experiencing culture and sites at a young age never costing my family anything. "that sounds great" you might say. The truth of the matter is it wears on a person. My father was in the Canadian Forces 20 years served. Having to uplift your family so often that you never have a home to call your own or any long term friends is hard on a kid. I'm not going to sit here and bitch about my childhood but I need to make the point in saying, this lifestyle turned me into a person who can't sit still. I constantly need to change my environment and it reflects in my job. hobbies and every aspect of my life. I have a grin from ear to ear as the end of this month approaches because as of June 29th my first, my virgin voyage and certainly not my last, begins. This month can't end fast enough. You all know what its like, the anticipation...the buying of new gear and farkles, prepping and planning making sure every detail is complete then the wait... the wait for the man to say "sure you can have 2 weeks off" on their terms of course. Waiting for the perfect time to begin your first official ride report, hoping to intrigue the massive with your travels, pictures and witty banter :) On that fateful Saturday 2 boys 2 girls and 2 bikes leave the bowels of Toronto and head to the beauty that is the east coast to experience lives as a nomad once again...Oddly I am overly comforted by this. I look forward to all the conversation, the tips and things to see along the way that you wonderful people will surely provide. Here is my official shout out to those that made this happen in my head The Postman, Radioman, RTWDoug, Fishfund and a host of others that speed me along. Thank you for everything though you don't know what you did you took the time to share with us. Thanks to my beautiful girlfriend my cohort Alekomotto and his girlfriend for all the insight, dedication, lists, mapping work and generally not punching me in the face Let the adventure begin!
