This is day 9 of my mid-trip vacation. After arriving in St. John's on May 16th, I spent the better part of the week on the east coast hiking around Signal Hill and taking in the atmosphere on George street before flying to Vancouver on May 22nd. If you're in St. John's and need to pack your bike for a flight, I highly recommend having the guys at Freeride Mountain Sports do it for you. They did a great job making sure Gracie was well protected for her plane ride.
While in Vancouver I've been hanging out with my sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew, and re-stocking for the second leg. The big difference with the second part of the trip is that I expect the weather to improve significantly so I'll be camping as much as possible, starting tomorrow.
My legs will likely be a little creaky after 9 days off the bike, but I'm excited to get back out there. As an added bonus, my sister is going to join me for the next two days on the road!
From my days in St. John's...
