Day 50: The Halfway Update

It's day 50 of my 100-day tour across Canada and I'm pretty exhausted.
Only two days have been above 20 degrees (both in Prince George).
It snowed twice.
I've already driven 13,000 kms.
I had my side view mirror licked by an elk.
Two grizzly bears walked in front & back of my ride.
I wouldn't trade the trip for anything.



And I've managed to keep my tour blog updated for every day on the road:


The biggest bright spot for me has been the generosity of everyone along the way. The meals, the places to sleep, the dog bowl donations, the drinks, a cork screw, a neck pillow, the drive when I locked my keys in my car, etc, etc. Special big thanks to the people in every city who have stepped up and worked toward getting a show going. There have been a lot of you!

I've had fun at all the shows so far! And I've got 50 more days to go... The itinerary is at bottom!

Rather than bore you with the stories from my blog, I thought I'd send point form highlights:
