    Did you get rained on? (I tried to read the blog but it crashed my computer)! (I'm sure it's the laptop and not the blog). That's SO much fun; riding at top speeds in the rain.
    I tried to post a comment to one of the entries..and I got shut out. I tried again, and it was ok. I know it was my computer...it's old.
    ANYWAY....yes we did get rained on! In Canada once..it was just a slight sprinkle. AND about 20 minutes from home we hit the BIG one....we had to stop and actually put our rain gear on...I stayed fairly dry all smooshed up against Rick...hehehehehe

    Hmmmm a follow car...I'll bring that up at the next riders meeting! Great idea! You can carry the gear and sandwiches!

    Oh yeah....that's a good one too. Especially since this trip was mostly cash only. We paid for gas and souviners with CC, but hotel and food was cash.

    Do you know that Canada does NOT have $1 bills? they have the $1 and $2 coins. THAT gets so heavy after awhile.

    Same with Ireland. They have 1 euro coins, 2 euro coins... Does get heavy. We used them for tips at the pubs and for the chambermaid. The pubkeepers loved us.

    Don't you just love Canada though?

    Oh Tink...Canada was so beautiful! We met this wonderful older man who played all sorts of cool "odd" instruments while we were at Lake Louise. He had on ... shoot, I can't spell it or pronounce the name of those shorts with suspenders...and he YODELED while our picture was being taken with him! It was awesome!

    I can't spell it but I think you mean leiderhosen? My Da brought my brother a pair back from Germany on one of his visits. (My brother had to wear them too). Heeeeheeeeheee!

    I love Canada. I love the country areas and I love their cities (well, the ones I've been to, of course). So, are you saying, "eh" and "oout" and "hooose?"

    Now I'm back to being MOM...I'll go bug him.

    Banff was so PRETTY!!! One thing we learned about being in Canada, they have a different mind set. When you order Chinese here in the states, you KNOW you're going to get served within 20 minutes. In Canada, it took almost an HOUR!!! Same with the super nice Restaurant at the Caribou Lodge where we stayed in Banff. Dinner was superb, but it took FOREVER to get it.
