Rusty, Pam (the woman from Manitoba who will head up our Manitoba chapter next year) and I will leave here Thursday, hopefully early in the day. We will have Hugh, our very own professional photographer/videographer, in tow. Then, later — or maybe the next morning — Raelene, Rusty’s girlfriend will follow. Oh, yeah, I forgot. We will also have the inimitable …………… Kenny! That is our entourage.
So we will get there later in the day, I imagine, because it is an 8 hour drive from my place if you’re doing the speed limit. We will NOT be doing that. Plus, we will stay OFF the QEII as much as we can, so I imagine our 8 hour drive will be more likely a 10 hour one. Come to think of it, add time out for an interview in Red Deer and a meal or two along the route … this could easily turn into a 12 hour day!
I just learned that Joanne Tanner, one of our riders going the entire distance, will be going down on Thursday too. I imagine we’ll meet up with her there.
