Our day started at 6:30 am with a “Home Town” send off in Abbotsford. The Mayor Bruce Banman and MLA Mike de Jong attended along with about 40 family and friends. Our first leg from Abbotsford to Mission was a ride along with Mike de Jong joining us, my daughter and 7 year old grandson and a few others.
We hit high gear leaving Mission because our goal for the day was Lytton, an ambitious 200 km day. We had a great day with wind at our backs blew us out of the Fraser Valley. We had some significant up hills and 7 tunnels along the way that tested our training. The temperature reached 35 degrees. All passed the test.
We pulled into Lytton at 8 pm, so a very long day! We had some surprise gifts along the way, 18 candy bars, $100 cash, a family in our camp ground saw the RV and wanted to donate. A local youth group came by and gave us a donation.
