It begins

Hello darkness my old friend...
...I've come to talk with you again

I can't believe that I'm doing this again.

I couldn't fathom doing this alone. Kim and Anders are a big part of it, but there are others. Marty from Bow Cycle was an angel, getting our bikes together. Tom, Jesse and Roxy at GPS city, also very helpful. Erik, Cindy, Mom, Dad...helping in so many ways.

Despite all of the help, today was hectic; getting my life together after returning from abroad last night. But I work better under pressure.

We got news that Craig pulled into Antelope Wells. So strange that I feel that I've seen him so recently, and yet he is finished before I even get started.

We made it to Banff in time to have dinner with Crazy Larry. The rain had stopped and it was a perfect, calm evening to pull ourselves together for the big departure.

Quote of the night comes from Anders, on our late night shopping trip:

"Why do they put kittens on the toilet paper here? You don't wipe your ass with kittens. Or least you are not supposed to. Call me old fashioned."

Kim and Anders have been chanting "we ride at dawn!", perhaps I should put this thing away now.
Sent using a Blackberry that I'd better not lose.

Tori - good luck, have fun, and keep you're eye on the world going, I still don't understand the kittens thing, but it's funny. Hope the weather dries up so it swings to the "funner" end of the spectrum.
