DAY 26 - TERRACE BAY TO MARATHON

Dad's hosts in Nipigon sent him off with a "farmers breakfast" which sounds a lot like a truckers breakfast - hash browns, sausage and eggs with homemade bread.  A BIG THANK YOU to Herman who got up and made this breakfast before dad left around 7:30 am.

Glena and Herman gave dad a brief tour of Nipigon, downloaded pictures off dad's camera and forwarded to me which you will see on the blog.  THANK YOU Glena and Herman for your hospitality.

Today will be dad's second day in Northern Ontario's big hills and windy roads.  From talking with other cyclists, this should be the worst stretch of hills in the North.  Today is not too long of a day, but he needs to save some energy for tomorrow's long ride to Wawa.

  1. There are several groups across the country working on raising awareness, prevention and gathering funds for research to end the disease. The most popular way to show support for the victims is by wearing the pink ribbon or a pink cap or t-shirt.. You can also stick the pink ribbon on your car or your work cubicle; just about anyplace where somebody will see it and think about getting a checkup.

  2. Gary: eargly waiting your visit to RM Boucherville. It has been an extremely long time since we last saw each other, the old Drummond McCall days in Lachine. If you could give an approxamite time when you expect to arrive, there are a few oldtimers who would like to chew the fat. waiting for an answer.

  5. Hi from Nathan's grade one class in Nova Scotia. We read about your progress each day and the kids want to wish you good luck riding up all those hills and they hope the wind will push you along. "Go grandad go."

  6. Every purchase goes a long way. Many people will be afflicted with breast cancer each year. It doesn’t discriminate and it’s important to be made aware of this fatal disease. Breast Cancer Awareness Month should happen every month.
