    Wow only two more sleeps and the reality hits. "No bikes" :eek1 for five weeks.lol

    I have to mention I have had some great success gathering some articles to take with me. I work as a road runner(courier) and the schools have dontated many
    pens/pencils, and other small school goodies.
    And I spoke to a few dentist that I del'v to and they have all made donations of tooth brushes and small tooth paste samples.

    All these folks are in Stoney Creek Ontario, a small town with big hearts and
    willing to particapate in some true acts of kindness. Oh and Purolator has supplied all the shipping boxs to put them in. The upper hands at Purolator to have also given there blessing if I need to take more time once I get there. How cools is that. :clap

    Greetings from Japan...got in this afternoon , then took the bullet train to Koriyama and just finsihed dinner with liberal amounts of Sake. I'm here to work with Sony, but their factory is right next door to the Asahi beer factory......Lot's of good beer & sake in the area because it's famous for their water quality. I have to travel around to a few places this week, but have the weekend off so I'm going down to Hiroshima....never been there before. I'll post some pictures in the GTA thread.

    Two days later we are all loaded, pleased to announce that this last week is in the rearview mirror. After a gearbox failure on the PD, a scramble to rebuild the brown GS which was in various stages of undress. Much thanks to Lornce who came up to the farm for the assist, one container short and three all nighters the bikes are on their way as of Monday at 1700hrs. A great big thanks to Mark and all who were involved at Sealed Air in Brampton who allowed us the use of their docks to load the bikes after the building we were to load from was sold. Thanks to all on Sunday who helped in so many ways, from loading, bringing all kinds of yummy treats which resulted in an impromtu picnic and bike load.Many thanks to Rob, Sten and Harry who spent their entire Monday waiting for the second container and helping load it and Ivan for staying till he had to go to work and Shawn for coming after work. This is the teamwork that makes for great expeditions.
