In February, I thought I had it all planned out. Leave the island Victoria Day weekend, do a workshop in upstate New York, proceed slowly to Florida, across to California, up to Tofino and back across Canada over an 8-10 week time frame. Then came winter... a long one it felt like. I have to be in Nova Scotia mid-June. I'm just starting bike maintenance. There are things I can't rush. So... now I'm still doing 2 weeks off island at the end of May. Back for a couple of weeks and then a couple of weeks in NS. Back... do more prep. Then, first week of Aug. or so, off doing the 8 to 10 weeks but in reverse with a cut-off to be back on the island for our Thanksgiving (before the snow!) Let's see how the new plans hold out.
