Day 9: Wind at Our Backs

We started the day a bit overwhelmed because we had 204 km to put in to get to Edmonton. Plus we had a TV interview with Global TV scheduled at 6:30 pm, which was wonderful but did add to the pressure to make a fast trip to Edmonton. We had three people join us for a ride along in Edson.Edson leaveWe had a strong wind at our backs which was more up and down than we expected. We put in about 120 km by our lunch break.

We did make everything on time and my dear friends Fred and Annette brought us the most delicious dinner delivered to parking lot of the church. A good group of friends and family joined us for our presentation plus MP Laurie Hawn joined in and had some words of encouragement for us.  Edmonton Group
