The day started off with another fury friend waking me up - Izzy the kitten - I'm not a cat person, but this little guy is pretty cute and he doesn't make my nose itch.  Got a picture with Martin, Christie, and Bailey before school with the Nurse Next Door car.  This is one of Martin's businesses - it's home care for the elderly who want to maintain their independence living in their own homes.  So, if you need a little TLC in your home this is the company to get it from (click here to learn more). 

So, riding down the hill today that nearly killed me at the end of my ride yesterday was a fun way to start the day.  At the bottom I stopped a the gas station and was greeted by a couple of bikers who had already seen my picture in the paper.  I bought a paper and cut out the article.  Onward out of Kamloops I realized how long I've been waiting for this experience.  I got present to how much I've wanted to get back to everyday being better than the day before.  I'm there and it literally made me cry.  How freaking awesome is this?!!  Not only do I get to experience it, I get to share it with everyone who looks at my site and do it for a good cause.  Outstanding!  Then my mind started working and coming up with all sorts of fun and funny things which will get inserted here and there on the site.  The pictures above show most of the day.  It was sunny sunny sunny and my solar panel was working overtime - because of all the power my phone even gave me a message saying I wasn't using the right charger.  By the time I got to Salmon Arm my muscles were pretty shot and it was nice that the camp ground I found has showers.  Not only that they have free wireless internet throughout the camp and each site has power.  To top it off, they donated my $25 camp fee to the Huntington Society.  Sweet!  If you ever come through Salmon Arm - stay at the Salmon Arm Camping Resort.  They also have little cabins, a pool, hot tub, laundry facilities, and a little store with ice cream.

There's lots more to tell, but I need to start regenerating my energy for tomorrow. 

Sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite.

Hi Kevin! Was the guy who sat next to you on the plane ride from MSP to Denver. It looks like you are off to a great start! Way to go!

BTW ... I just purchased a fun toy that you may be interested in using during your trip. It is a waterproof helmet cam for only $129 USD.

Check it out:

    Two Wheels and a Heartbeat

    A long time personal dream and now a worthy cause.

    Huntington's disease has profoundly impacted my family and until recently I didn't even know about it. When I suggested to my dad that I was going to ride across Canada and was looking for a cause he suggested The Huntington Society. Now I'm learning a lot about the disease, the people it affects, and my family. Help find a cure with your donation to the Huntington Society of Canada.

    How much could we raise if everyone donated $25 (charitable receipt provided automatically by email)
