Lately, I am certain some can tell my tone has been somewhat tame. Life has a way of throwing you curve balls when you least expect them. As the saying goes, “here today, gone tomorrow”. Cheryl and I have broken up for reasons I am really not sure of but she is gone and I must go on.
I leave for my X-Country trip in 32 days~! ;-)

Let me preference this review by saying I am just your average run of the mill female ADV rider and all my reviews are honest based on WHAT I believe and hope they are useful somehow. Had to get that out because I get many emails from folks criticizing I am not an expert…no kidding…i know that and completely aware. ;-) Now, on to my initial review.
Today I will review the Jacket and for tomorrow I will review the pants. PICS are all clickable for larger versions

This blog has been read in many parts of the WORLD…here are 2 maps showing the reach. I hope everyone who comes by finds interest in at least one post.
I am thankful and appreciate all the comments and how so many stop by….My SOLO trip is coming up in May.
After going back and forth as to where I should take my SOLO trip this year I think I have come up with a plan. Head East, go see my family and some friends and then head West. I think it’s doable…May 17 – June 16? Need to replace my SPOT CONNECT as my other one seems to like to eat batteries more than usual and the battery lid does not like to stay closed. So, new Connect on order and over the next few months I shall get the camping gear together, check out it twice, before I leave get the bike all tuned up with new K60 tires and off I will head into the USA and Canada. We did this trip, different route in 2010.
As usual I will try to do a live report from the road on the ADV forum or maybe just the F800 forum not sure yet and the BLOG, with updates on our Face Book page too. Should be fun to get out there on my own. I have taken shorter trips SOLO but not 12,000 KM’s worth. Continue reading
Best way to see Bald Eagles can be as simple as coming to BC, bring binoculars and watch….cheap…this is a video some local cable company made of our trip to see the bald eagle phenomenon that happens every fall/early winter here near our house. Have a look…I made the cut. I am the one in the video who says I am from NY. ;-)
Short photo gallery of an area once again near our house. East in an area called the Fraser Valley. Friday is it was cold for us…below freezing with a wicked win chill but ever so sunny. I often post about my area mainly for those who are not from here. There is so much to see this time of year if you like the outdoors. Wild life, snow capped mountains, skiing for those who love to do that…still off road riding in many areas too. No bike today, too much black ice when I left in the morning.
So, take a look around. I saw plenty of bald eagles around the Fraser river…many immature ones learning how to survive by the few adults who are now repairing old nests and getting ready for our 2014 eaglet season. Many eagles down south have all ready laid eggs and have off springs developing into fledglings. We start later up here. February and March “N”estorations time and April egg time.
Over night the resort filled up a bit more and it was my lone bike among all cars.
Yesterday I had planned on exploring on the bike the surrounding area but after a beautiful sunrise…
…sea fog rolled in not only around the water but inland too. It was destined to stick around the entire day. So, after having a great yet a bit expensive breakfast at the Cedars restaurant I walked around looking at cottages for sale in the area and went to the beach. Continue reading
While many of you in the Northern Hemisphere are watching out your windows with despair and your bikes are all tucked in until the thaw…here out on the usual wet coast of BC we have an unusual break in the dreary weather and I happen to have the weekend off. Temperatures are freezing in the morning but by afternoon yesterday, today and hopefully tomorrow we are seeing double digits Celsius.
