I had a great time last year (Summer 2013). My riding buddy and me. It was a daunting task for me to ride across the Country, mainly by myself. I left Vancouver and was alone, talking to myself until I met up with my two riding buddies in State College, PA. (actually Bellefonte, PA) That was 8 days and 3,212.8 miles later. I was so happy to see my two riding buddies, ScootCommute (from Montreal) and Vstar*lady (from Kingston) . After a day of relaxation the three of us continued to Portland, ME together where ScootCommute had to return to work and Vstar*Lady and myself continued onward to PEI
It was so nice to have company and someone to lead the way but now I had to return home and start heading West. Just the thought brought tears to my eyes that I had to leave my riding buddy behind
and learn how to fend for myself again and to think how many miles I had to cover to get back to the Pacific Coast.
We had one last day ride together to Prince Edward County and I was really enjoying our last day together . It was a warm summer day and all the time I wished that it would never end, but it did. Oh how it would have been nice to stay another day but she had other commitments to attend to
I had a chance to explore her world and also meet her neighbours. It was a nice break from living in a crowded urban city. I enjoyed being in rural Battersea. Notice I had the place nearly to myself. (notice under the trees) I think this was my last camping day until I reached Crescent City, CA
The morning had finally arrived for me to leave. I rose with the sun
It's not yet bright and the garbage men are already at work. I quickly packed up and loaded up my bike ready for an early departure. As with all of my days I like to leave at 8am and grab a breakfast sandwich an hour or so down the road.
Imagine my surprise when I was treated to a breakfast of champions by Vstar*lady. It was a great surprise. Bacon & Eggs, Pancakes, toast and special coffee from her new machine. I can't thank her enough for going out of her way to make me feel like I was at home
There are not enough words to express my gratitude. All I can say is thank you for everything. Thank you for leading me all the way from ME, through NB to PEI and back to PQ . Thank you for taking this summer to show me the way to places that I have never seen before.
Here is part three of our ride to Prince Edward County
This was my view for about 2-1/2 weeks . . .
and I can't wait to do it again . . . Thank You for everything, till we meet again
