    OK, made it to the Island. Did I miss anything?

    I got myself a house, a bike and a car at least for a few months. I went out riding with the middle school bike club yesterday and got to see the devastation from the logging. Holy Crap!!!!

    For the RM regulars who don't know me, I've spent the last 13 years or so building a system of trails for the local middle school mountain bike club on Vancouver Island. Between myself and one other person, we have built over 20 miles of easy to intermediate singletrack on a piece of land beside the school. The land belongs to a logging company and we were well aware that it would eventually be logged. We had their permission to build & ride there.

    I moved away from Vancouver Island 2 years ago (a very long story) but recently I heard that logging was set to begin on the school trails so between that and a couple of other reasons (my kids) I decided to move back here at least for a while. I knew even though the logging company said they would be careful of the trails, there would be work required to make them rideable for the kids.

    So I grabbed my stuff and headed west (from southern Ontario). When I got here 2 days ago I had $200 and my backpack full of everything I own. Since I've been here, I've been offered a house (all expenses paid) use of a car and use of a really nice Trek Fuel, until the end of March. I talked the bike guy down to a nice older Bontrager hardtail. The Fuel is more bike than I need.

    My kids were glad to see me too.

    It's a long story but I'm working on it. At the moment I'm living in my wife's house & my Lady is living in her husband's house. A year ago we were living together. Then I got cancer.
    The rest of the story is really complicated.
