Day 3…..to Quesnel, BC

Hello again….

What progress we are making. Almost 400 miles today. We departed Chilliwack and headed north toward Prince George in British Columbia. We are about 100 miles south in Quesnel. The countryside is absolutely amazing.

When we crossed the border, the odor from the trees was phenominal, but as we proceeded north, the odor from the DAIRY FARMS became overwhelmimg. The stinch was horrific. If you have ever driven past a pig farm……that is what is smelled like. But, now that we are in the mountains, it is awesome. And you folks that know me……I don’t use that word. The scenery is like the Colorado mountains on steroids. The waterfalls that flow from the sides of the mountains next to the road gush forth at every turn. I wish I could video the entire trip, but then….there wouldn’t be enough memory on the camera or on the Ipad.

I hope the pics do some justice to the beauty that we are privileged to behold. I wish you all were here, especially my “Babydoll.”

Again, thanks to my daughter Holly for helping with the photos. Videos are questionable at best, until I purchase additional software to handle the HD video.

Until tomorrow……Gato out.

Hello All,

Well, day 2 found us at the BMW dealership in Seattle until after noon; which was good ’cause I was still “icing” said knee. Anyway, we finally got all the bikes serviced, new IPAD 2 activated for the Birdman and a new pair of gloves for the Vulture. We departed Seattle, crossed the boarder and arrived in Cilliwack or something like that for the evening. We had dinner at Earl’s, which was basically across the parking lot. Let me just say……OVERPRICED, but then again, it appears that everything in CANADA is OVERPRICED! Good grief, $5.50 for a gallon of premium gas! I think I need a Prius instead of a BMW. All said and done, we had a great day. So off for real, tomorrow.

Later……Gato
