    Actually Mr "Smith" I was thinking of a Map like a picture with roads and towns & stuff on it? As I said the one at the top of the thread prints out all grainy for me... ... ... maybe I'm doing something wrong?

    Three more sleeps. Now complete with orgasmic dreams. Weather looks good everywhere except there is a small chance of a little rain on the Monday. But we are a tough bunch and a little rain wont stop this army. Maybe my belly will shrink a bit.

    Ainsworth Hot Springs Hotel is full.
    Is there anyone here that has room for one more?
    Failing that, is there anyone who's staying somewhere else in Ainsworth?

    Agraham, I have a room by myself. I can't remember what kind of room I even booked to tell you the truth, but worst case scenario, I'm bringing my sleeping bag and you"re on the floor! Deal?

    I'm heading out tomorrow morning to meet Zen and it's 1:30 am. I'll give Ainsworth a call just to confirm my reservation, and if I'm lucky I can update this post or PM you with my phone. Don't wanna leave you stranded. Either way I'm solo and I DID book a room..so...no worries.

But I think I have to go in for a one hour meeting at 9PM. Such is the life of such and important person.

    I just bought my self a kick azz Bags Connection tank bag, it coming with as well as my hardbags which I can't live without. My tank bag though can't be slept on like yours Randy so it's just for water, camera and granola bars.

    I will have to meet you guys on the other side down the road. The border guards don't like me. I know of a couple shortcuts across the border.

    Well I am home. I'm tired and I am a touch sore. My wife still loves me. The dog still wags his tail and my son still doesn't say much to me. What can I say.

    Other than thank you everyone for the great ride. A few of you came quite the distance, from Manitoba and Alberta which shows much dedication to the spirit of the ride.

    I would be amiss if I were not to acknowledge Jasonsmith's and Chomper's contributions to this ride for if it was not for their tremendous efforts in organizing and to a large degree, moving it along during the trip, the tour would not be nearly as enjoyable as it was.

    I promised Jasonsmith I would not post the pictures I have of him in the hotel room.

    More to follow with pix and stories when I have cleaned, had dinner and made amends with my wife.
