For the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to figure out a way to maximize my stay at Grundy while also going to the Tavai Family Reunion in Vancouver and taking a 5 day train trip back across Canada. All of this is compounded by the fact that I also have to stay 5 months in BC for health insurance purposes and I also have to bring the Beast in to a service centre for much needed brake work.
I had a duh moment yesterday. I had a 3 week block set aside for all this when, in reality, I only need a few days. So I spent most of yesterday changing flight itineraries, cancelling train trips, and organizing the Beast’s spa day. I leave Wednesday and will be back at Grundy by Tuesday afternoon.
So, with that all organized, a friend and I went shopping in the metropolis of Britt where you can buy tomatoes with only a few moldy spots on them and cans of Spam….and really, what else do you need at camp? On the way, we stopped at the dump and found 2 very large black bears, one of whom growled a warning at us to stay away. No problem!
