Perfect Timing

Pancake Dinner tonight 5-7” Said a big banner as I rolled into Drummond just after 5pm on a Wednesday evening. Score! I found my way to the community centre where I found out this Pancake dinner is held once a year on “veterans-day” and today happened to be just that. As I was enjoying my…

Magic and Madness. Or something in between.

Prince Rupert in August is a fair bit more pleasant than Prince Rupert in December. For a town that get’s 229 rainy days a year it was surprisingly sunny, and I got to catch up with Ben & Kerem! Whom I met as they were riding down Vancouver Island last December as I was heading north.…
