Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Frayed

So I’ve had a few frayed moments the last few days. Too many to blog them all, but mostly related to a Calgary trip that I went on even though I couldn’t afford it. Why?…because I can’t say no. Actually that’s not true… I did say no, but somehow that was translated into a yes. So myself and 4 others piled into a 15 passenger van Friday night and drove to Calgary. Renting the van was an experience to say the least. A comedy of errors that ended with me trying to get to work stuck at broadway station during rush hour, every passing train packed full, and I’ve got a huge sleeping bag, pillow and back pack – it was hopeless. After a random guy started eyeballing my sleeping bag and insisting on knowing where I was ‘camping’ that night, I decided the day was crazy enough and needed to be reset. It was not a good day to walk into the office late with a pillow in hand. So I pressed control/alt/del hauled my stuff on the opposite train, took the day off and went home.

By the time the Calgary trip was over I had logged 2300 km in 4 days with about 12 hours sleep. So describing me as ‘frayed’ Tuesday would be an understatement and could explain how I almost got into a fight with a rude grungy guy at the skytrain. I don’t think he expected me to grab his arm and twist it back when he got in my face. I think I need a spa day. Or just sleep : (

At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
Our last leg of @route16_ca was gorgeous. Lots of fun corners, surrounded by forest, towering mountains, and ocean. We stopped at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward. Totally worth it, do the tour if you visit. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #travelnorthernbc #motorcycle #roadtrip #historic #britishcolumbia #route16 #suzukitu250x #motoroadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute
Our best riding day was a side trip through the Nass Valley. Rode through a landscape of lava rocks, forests, and mountains, while weaving through some fun corners, stopping at First Nations villages and hot springs. We ended up back on the Pacific Ocean, so close to Alaska. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #roadtrip #roadtrippin #moto #motorcycle #suzukitu250x #nassvalleylavabeds #hotsprings #beatifulbc #travelnorthernbc #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #route16 #nassvalley #nassvalleyhotsprings #watchyourhead

A little hazy as we left Prince George and started our journey along #route16 Met a bunch firefighters from around the world that were staying at our hotel in PG. So grateful for everything they are doing to save our forests. #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x #2000km #1200miles #northofthewall #motorcycle #roadtrip #thankyou #grateful #lovetrees
