Hi everyone,

sorry about not posting anything for a bit now. I’ve been quite busy with exams and well the weather has been great! Unfortunatly, my bike has been at the shop now for over a week and I’ve not had the chance to ride it. I’m in the process of overhauling it at Phatmoose Cycles in ottawa (basically everything will be new on it except for the frame, fork and saddle) and it takes a while to receive all the parts I ordered. I’ve also done quite a bit of shopping lately, mostly at Mountain Equipment Coop. I tested my new 1 man tent the other night .  It works great! I love the fact that I have enough room to lay down in this one and not feel claustrophobic. It took me about an hour in the store to find a 1 man tent that I like.

I’m often asked how I’ll be updating the blog on the road and quite frankly it’ll be a challenge. I’ll mostly be relying on libraries, schools and my hosts along the way. However, a friend of mine told me about this great website called twitter that offers webspace to post cell phone text messages online.  I haven’t set up an account with that website yet since I still haven’t activated my cell (I’ll keep you guys posted when it’s up and running).  I plan on sending a text message to twitter every night on the road to give a mini rundown of where I am and how I felt that day.

    What kind of bike are you using?

    It’s a modified hybrid Devinci Stockholm 2005. Once it’s done i’ll take a picture of it to show everyone. I paid 500$ for it 3 years ago but i’ll be adding around 500$ worth of stuff on it.
