Day 21 Trans Canada north of Medicine > Saskatchewan Boundary

Tuesday - sorry Internet unavailable so a day late blogging! Woke up and the wind was blowing a gale actually in the right direction for a change. After spending most of the day before blubbing! Yes first trantrum and we know what there like don't we Quintin! (similar experience in Whistler with a bike a few years ago - when I threatened to throw one off a cliff!) I got up and made the most of it. Oh my 35km and didn't have to peddle! Scary really - good job I got a big ass to weigh me down! Rain on the horizon so sped through Medicine Hat and carried on to the Alberta/ Saskatchewan boundary. Road kill of the day 1 x coyote - no Helen I didn't do it! The forecasted rains came and will be with us until the weekend. Michele arriving tomorrow (Thursday) . My cousin Faye arriving on Saturday. Rob flys home on Sunday leaving girls on tour to tackle the prairies. Off for a beer and a couple of days off!

Hey Jo,

Great to hear you've made it to the downhill! Hope the bike is holding up. Saskatchewan is a good place to practice riding with no hands. A question top ponder; if someone screams on the prairies, does anybody hear? May the wind be at your back.

Good Journey!

Jim
