Good news is, I still have tomorrow off.  Bad news is, I have some errands to run here in town to get ready for a business trip that will delay me leaving on my fun trip, to the point that it might be late in the day before I can even start heading that way.

Even worse news, the corporate travel agency screwed up my flight out of Vancouver on Sunday.  I was supposed to be on a 7:15 PM flight, which would have been doable with a very early start out of Castlegar on Sunday morning.  But they actually booked me on a 4:00 flight, and now the 7:15 flight is full.  No way I can leave Castlegar in daylight and be at YVR in time to get through customs and security for the 4:00 flight.

After thinking it over real hard, I'm doing the sensible thing and cancelling my KBBB visit this year. Sometimes I hate my practical side.

The bright side is I did make it over there earlier in the year, sans borscht.  Maybe I'll swing that way again some weekend later this summer.

Everyone ride safe, have fun, and watch out for the Vaseline.  Smile

WELL,  if Croak can't make it, what's the point of us going?

Actually ....

My dad just went into the ICU at the hospital.  I had just packed the motorcycle last night (Wedn.)   when we got a call that we'd better get out there.  We got there at 10  pm,  by 1:30 things had improved.   At noon today, he seemed OK  but by 5 he had another episode.   By 9 pm he'd stabilized again.   He'll probably survive, but it's not a guarantee.

We're not gonna make it to the BBBBQ,  in Sept we hope to be going to the Pacific Coast Highway, and hope to see you then, if not earlier.
I've been looking forward to this for 11.5 months. I even dug up my old Speedo.  Spandex appears to have an increadible ability to S T R E T C H.   Crazy

It sucks not making it there.  My Dad even told me to go ahead (he loves motorcycles too) but better safe than sorry, right?  

I was really looking forward to riding with new and old friends.

Catch you later,

Jeff and Colleen. You two will be missed but am glad you are staying to look after your Dad.

Take care, well wishes from all of us and I will keep the tire at the ready for your next visit.

Jeff, sorry to hear about your dad, hope all is well.

I went through some similar episodes with my own father; although he did pull through I'm sure glad I went down and spent some time with him while he was in hospital.

Funny thing is,  while I was there yesterday, thru the mask and between gasps for air, he asks me why I'm not on my motorcycle trip.


Of course if I hadn't been there, I'd hear about it for years to come,  he doesn't forget anything.


fwiw,  I'm very impressed with the level of care he's getting.

Looks like I will be missing the ride but still plan on attending the BBQ. So how the heck do you get to AMan's little slice of paradise? Is there a map & directions somewhere?

What time are people going to be getting to the BBQ?

I'm full of questions today. Who's got the answers? Oops, another question...

Home again after a wonderful 5 days of riding.  A nice leisurely 1900km on the Ducatis.  After our rain on the first evening getting to Radium it was a toasty warm, sunny ride.

Thanks again to the Zanetti family & the Alphabet people.  It was great to see old friends & meet some new ones.  (Don't know if we'd say we missed him, but birdrunner's absence was noted... :pokestick:)

I am also alive, home and back at work. The Cascade 20 hwy was still the best ride ever but I left Winthrop early in the morning at a balmy 15C to run into a bone shaking 6C in the mountains. Finally pulled over and got all dressed up only to peel it all off an hour later. Many thanks again to our good hosts Jim, Karina, Dave and Liz. You guys are the best. Pics to follow shortly in the pics thread.

Oops, just posted to the wrong link.  Looks like family not arriving until the 24th so I can attend the Friday evening festivities and ride with the road crew on Saturday.  Am looking forward to reconnecting with ST.net bunch!
