I will first explain my interpretation of “adventures”. For a small child the first time they go somewhere alone it is an adventure, as we get older our adventures become more complicated but they always retain the element of doing something new or going somewhere new. This year I had an adventure,a 7 day motorcycle trip by myself. You might wonder why by myself ? The simple answer is that I had no one able to go at that time and it was go alone or stay home and wish I had gone. Too much of our lives are spent wishing we had gone on more adventures. I like to plan things but they don’t always follow the plan, in this case I had actually planned 2 trips but the weather changed the first leg of my trip so that the second had to be changed as well. Initially I had planned to take my first week and go to Alberta to visit my brother and on my second week (which was actually 8 days) I wanted to see how far south along the pacific coast I could go and still get back to Vancouver for the 30th for a school reunion I had promised to attend. My trip started by me heading north east to Revelstoke where I got rain untill I got to Golden th en it was mixed rain and cloud to the road to Jasper ( the Icefields parkway) click on the picture to make it bigger
then east to Rocky mountain house and south to my brothers place. It was a long day made longer by the time change that I had forgotten about. after a great visit I again headed south towarde the border.
then over to North Van. to my oldest son. Satuday was off to the school reunion (interesting but uneventful) then back for dinner on the waterfront
and later watching fierworks. Sunday started cool and I was worried about rain but as the day progressed it got better and I had to change to my summer jacket. finally home after 7 days away and 6 days of riding just 3 miles short of 3000 miles ( I shouldnt have taken the last short cut)
