Day 46: Wednesday, July 24

We had a great morning with an overcast sky and another tailwind. Everything went well until early this afternoon. We were riding when a puppy came running out from a yard beside the highway. It was chasing us, which isn't the first time on this trip we've been chased by a dog. It happens at...

Day 45: Tuesday, July 23

Last night before I went to bed, I sat out on a big flat rock that was in the water. It was beautiful because the sky was clear and the full moon reflected off the water. I was writing in my journal, when I noticed the frogs had turned around to watch me. It was...

Day 44: Monday, July 22

I forgot to mention a few things yesterday, so here it goes... Most motorcyclists wave at us or give us the biker sign, while others just ignore us. So far, all bikers move over on the road and give us space...until yesterday. A big fat biker who obviously doesn't like bicyclists swiped in close to me....

Day 43: Sunday, July 21

We woke up around 7 a.m. TR was invited over to the neighbour's campsite for coffee. When BB and I crawled out of our tent, the neigbours, Barry and his brother Rod, asked us to join them for coffee and muffins. Later we met Barry's wife, Monique. We had some great conversations about all the...

Day 42: Saturday, July 20

BB and TR had mechanical issues first thing in the morning. BB had changed her back tire tube the previous evening because she has been having to fill the tire daily. A slow leak caused by a vehicle tire tread wire. Unfortunately, her tire tread has worn unevenly and with the new tube, she now...

Rest Day: Thursday, July 18

Last night some animal came under our tarp and stole our bread. BB found it a few feet away from the tent with a hole ripped into the bag. I can't believe we didn't hear anything. Although we went to bed late so we must have been in a deep sleep. We haven't had a full...

Day 40: Wednesday, July 17

After we said our good byes to Colleen, we began our long trek up the final hills of Lake Superior Park. The ride began with fog that kept getting thicker as we climbed. I realized I needed a new rear light that actually gives off light that drivers can see. Even with the fog we...

Day 39: Tuesday, July 16

This morning BB left her fritter in a bag on the table while she went to the washroom. I was trying to get the wi-fi to work when, our campsite neighbour, Joan, yelled over to me about a squirrel. I looked at the table and the little critter was ripping open BB's fritter bag! I...

Day 38: Monday, July 15

Even though we went to bed early, we had a rough sleep. It was noisy with the loud idling semis in the parking lot behind us. The highway was also noisy and we kept waking up hoping no one was trying to steal our bikes or attack us in the night. We were happy to...
