Knees cried like babies today - good thing it was mostly down hill.  Tomorrow's a break - at least that's what I'm calling it.  I might try to get a day ahead so that I can meet my buddy Tim in Banff to get filmed in 3D and maybe connect with some TV people for PR - he's a film maker and from what I understand an expert in 3D film making.

It was a tough day for pictures given the weather - rain, rain, and more rain...

I'm just going to up load pictures now and update the story tomorrow.

Thank you everyone for your very generous donations and for all of your support and messages - keep them coming.  It really makes a difference for me on my journey and for those living with Huntington's

It was a challenging day and my gear held up well keeping most of me dry.  It rained a lot and when the trucks went by, 4 or 5 at a time, there was a big vortex of mist, rain, spray and road grime.  Still managed to get some nice pictures. And now, at a campsite in Revelstoke, I'm camping beside another guy who's riding his bike across Canada.  This picture was taken about 40 km west of Revelstoke.

cool the last spike, see i've never seen that when i drive through there. now i know, thanks K. i eat the blue ones last. take care of the knees, lots of TLC. Knees represent pride and ego (weird in my yoga class tonight we created pride as the intention) ... your affirmation for healing is "I am flexible and flowing". Knee problems is stubborn ego and pride. Inability to bend. Fear. Inflexibility. Won't give in. Affirmation "Forgiveness. Understanding. Compassion. I bend and flow with ease and all is well" Good idea on the pizza, did a little birdy tell you that :) looked good. another great day of pics. it's like a mini vacation looking at them. have a great sleep.

When you get done you should do a public presentation of your pics/fundraiser for Huntingtons. Wine/cheese and Kevin's stories.

Eu falava exatamente sobre essas flores. De longe, elas parecem roxas. Lindas, lindas, lindas... eu me imaginei caminhando e cumprimentando cada uma: "bom dia!"

    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)
