Why you haven’t heard from me in awhile…

Update: I now have a blog for my cycling trip: CyclingAcrossCanada.org.

This Saturday, May 5th, I’m taking a 1-way flight to Vancouver, returning home by bicycle. It’s going to take me 6 weeks to get to Toronto where my employer, Allstream, is located.

This is a life long dream for me, one I was beginning to give up hope on. My love, Vicki, convinced me that there’s no better time then the present. She has supported me all the way: giving me the time to train, helping me to plan the trip, and giving that extra push whenever I start having second thoughts (6 weeks is along time to be alone and away from home). Now here I am, just 5 days away, packed and ready to go. I still can’t believe it. It is a dream come true.

I’m very excited about re-starting TeamCamp when I get back. When I’m on my bike my mind flourishes with new ideas and new approaches. I’m looking forward to doing some fun and interested things things with our small but energetic TeamCamp group when I get back.

For, your information, the next general TeamCamp meeting will be on June 21st. RSVP on Meetup here.  I don’t have a theme for our next meeting yet but I have a feeling we’ll have a lot to talk about.

Thank you all, for supporting TeamCamp over the years. I look forward to seeing you on my return.
