Noah was here!

Had Noah stay over after at my home after his very quick, and way too short, Vancouver Island visit. He rode up behind me on the Nanaimo ferry and I invited him to stay a night on his way back through North Vancouver.

Noah is skiing (actually snow boarding) Whistler right now. We've arranged to meet up tomorrow and ride up through Lilloet together and then camp a night. I'll live the rest of his trip vicariously through this thread but at least I can get to be a page in his travel log

Some photos and a video of Noah riding off are here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nkep8zf5v...f:IMG_6106.jpg

Nice rr, sounds like you are in for a serious adventure!

Canīt wait to follow you īround the world.
If you drive through Denmark(couldnīt quite tell by looking at the map), and need a place to sleep and something to eat, let me know and I will do my best to help you. That includes drinking beer and showing you scandinavian girls

Have a safe journey.

Thanks mate. It's unusual by Australian standards as the tunnel are so short. Over here they'd just dig it out and make it a cutting rather than a tunnel.

Thanks for the info! I'll let you get back to the day to day boredom of RIDING AROUND THE WORLD lucky bastard!!

Really UPS?

UPS wanted to charge me $280 to ship my snowboard from Whistler to AK. Fedex wanted more.. I chose the $120 to send it back to Minnesota. I guess I will be renting when I get to AK.

Welcome to being in Canada while trying to get product to/from the States. We deal with those kind of prices often.

But....you could try regular postage. Canada Post will send it to the USPS up there, though I don't know the pricing, it should be cheaper.
