I am behind in posts. This always seems to happen as days goes by. I am having bike issues again but that will be for Day 9. 😉
For all who read this blog from out of North America and may never have a chance to see Death Valley this is a treat!

June 2012 – Business & Pleasure (all pics are clickable for HiRez size)
June 15th – June 18th Leslie was taking a course about Hospital Development and Organ Donation. Cheryl flew down on the 15th for some R & R while I was in my course. Great course sponsored by NATCO and was useful to attend even though we do things much differently in Canada.
While we were away Cheryl’s cousin Taylor and boyfriend Dave took care of our “kids” and house…they have a little Chihuahua, Olive which made 4 dogs and an elderly cat for them to care for over a week. They always help out these “kids” and that also meant they were here for 44 days last summer while we were up north. We trust them immensely.
It’s Better In The Wind – Short Film
Once again we come across a video that really seems to capture the essence of ADV riding even though this is not a DS bike or bikes. An adventure is really anything you want it to be, the feeling you get from riding is what it’s all about. My new colleagues where I work are finding out that I am obsessed with riding. They laugh at me when I get the chance to ride to work and the smile on my face that stays all day. I used to ride to work every day but working for BC Transplant now it’s not easy to do since I am on call so much for now. In any case enjoy this “movie” and sit back and relax!
For the last two years I have been taking still photographs for a personal project entitled ‘It’s Better In The Wind,’ all the while collecting video footage from each ride as we traveled around the Western United States together.
I have been slowly editing the footage into a visual scrapbook of sorts for those who partook, and those who followed us via the web. No preaching the triumphs and failures of the motorcycle industry, no divisive commentary between manufacturers and styles…just a collection of imagery that will hopefully inspire more people to take to the road and discover what there is outside of our respective communities.
