July 2

July 3rd, 2007

The blade today was pretty quiet. I was expecting a lot more traffic since it was the holiday Monday, but it wasn’t too bad. Just steady. I didn’t get started until around 9:30 because we had misplaced an important address book and had to drive back to Becky’s to find it. But alas, we were able to continue our trip. So on I pushed into the head wind through Richmond Hill, Aurora and New Market. My only thought at this point was that I just can’t catch a break with the wind. What ever happened to the Prevailing Westerlies? I’ve now skated in every direction and had a head wind every time! But it’s almost comical now. The Wind Gods are playing games with me, and I’m starting to find it amusing. Although, now that I think about it, I wasn’t laughing at the time. Unless you consider laughter to be the same thing as cursing.


I stopped in Bradford for lunch and had a chance to meet up with an old friend and former roommate in University, Carla. It’s been a few years since I last saw her, so it was nice to catch up. We didn’t have too much time because I still had a lot of distance to cover, but she assured me that she would come to Boston Pizza in Barrie tonight so we could talk more. And a big Thank You to the Bradford Carla’s and their donations! Also, a pre-congrats goes out to Fonz for the upcoming wedding.


I put my head down and headed into the wind again. The next thing I knew, I had gone past Innisfil, through Barrie, out Dunlop Street and was now approaching Angus. It was just after 6pm when I decided to call it a day and head back to the good ‘ol Boston Pizza. You’d think I’d be getting bored of the menu, but they have a surprisingly big selection. Although pizza is probably my favorite since I love leftovers, their pastas and sandwiches are great, too. Listen to me ramble. You’d think I was a spokes person for them. Watch out Howie Mandel, I’m gonna be the next face of BP!


Adam and his parents and brother, Ryan, all came out to see me one last time before I start on the last couple months of my trip. Carla also showed up, as she said she would, with a couple friends. If anyone saw the newspaper article in the Toronto Sun, you’re aware that Adam always looks up to me with great admiration and love. In fact, if you take a look at the picture from that article, you may even question just how much he does love me. Well, he re-enforced his desire towards me with a very masculine gesture tonight. He baked me some delicious cookies. Don’t get me wrong, the cookies are amazing! Possibly some of the best cookies I’ve ever tasted. But Adam, I’m happily involved with Crystal. Her and I are both looking forward to my return to Vancouver.


We gladly accepted the Reid’s invitation to come back to their place for the night since we were only a few minutes up the road. I’m not to sure when I’ll have a chance to have a nice hot shower, so I had to jump at this offer. It’s pretty late now as I’m working hard to get the journals up to date. But when fd;ojdknmfnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn nnnnnnnnnnn nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn nnnnnnnn nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
Ok, that was just funny. I litteraly fell asleep on the keyboard and woke up an hour later to see that on my screen. I figure I should leave it there since it’s now part of today’s occurances.


Tomorrow I’ll be at Boston Pizza in Owen Sound at 7 pm. Looking forward to it because I’ve never been to that city.


Back to sleep.

    Rich…that was by far the funniest ending to a journal entry I have read so far! You might want to call it early a couple of nights.
