Default Moving back

After 4 years on the East Coast of Canada (and travels down the East Coast of the US, our friendly neighbour to the south), I am moving back to the wet coast; that's not a typo.

Left my bike there in August because I found a cottage near the shore that beckoned to me.
It is on an island that is 30 miles long and 6 miles wide at the widest. The population on the island is less than 2,000. My new home is 20 km from the ferry terminal; but 20 gorgeous, up, down, twisty rural kilometres with deer wandering everywhere and the smell of home.

The low side of this is that it will take 3 ferry trips to reach the mainland to go for a decent ride; meaning a few thousand km.

The high side is that I can see the water from my front deck and I will be happy to be back home on the West Coast of Canada.

Sal, congratulations! When you find a place that calls to your soul, sometimes you need to answer.

When will the big move take place?

<<Hugs>>

SAl,
Sounds like a really nice place that you have found there. Is there enough room at your cottage to host the 2014 PNW Wescalero rally???

Shortfoot,
The 2103 Rally is already in motion, thanks to Counter Steer. Check out:

June 18-21, 2013 The Great Missoula Flood & Scablands Rolling Rally

Plus I'm sure that there will be other rides in the works.
