Cheryl was behind making this video and she is in it as well….PLEASE share this video….it was made because Cheryl works with kids as a RCMP and is tired of seeing the bullying and suicides that happen over sexuality. This blog is followed by so many from all over the world….pass it on and help us get the word out…

St. Paul’s Hospital is where Leslie used to work. She knows Dr. Grant very well, has worked with the ICU many times and is proud to share this article raising awareness about organ donation. This is very near and dear to Leslie’s heart as she is now Organ Donation Specialist as well as a Hospital Organ Donation Coordinator for Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, BC. Please take a second to read! Thanks!
Greg Grant is an ICU doctor at St. Paul’s and the head of B.C. Transplant.

Some of the beautiful plants you will up on the SUNSHINE Coast of BC, Canada! Trying out my own skills…;-)
If anyone has been around the Parliament Building in Ottawa you will know what we are doing in this picture is not the most legal. There is not parking or stopping in front of this building…the funny thing is I made Cheryl stop for a photo OP…but look in the back ground….RCMP cruiser. Cheryl is a cop too! oops!
I feel the need to highlight another ADV trip. We met Guillaume at Pacific Motosports back in July the day he was leaving on his 6 month trip. Nice guy, got himself a brand new 2012 F800GS that day and seriously after we got done speaking about his lone adventure he was off on day 1.
I have been checking in on him and his blog. He will soon be heading to South America for his final leg. Check him out….we love supporting “fellow” explorers and at the same time a bit envious that so many riders are out there riding while many of us are working….;-) Meet Guillaume!
THE LONG WAY SOUTH

Summer 2012 although not completely over has been an interesting one. We did not get away as much as we did last summer (Triumph Alaska Adventure 2011 – 44 days)
We accomplished riding to TWO arctic circles!
BC’s great back roads
There are many reasons to DS but when you see why….doesn’t it make you want to explore this way? Get off the pavement????
Fraser Canyon, BC from August 7th 2012. Our Beemers had the pleasure of riding these canyon roads!

What a beautiful day! Cheryl and I got to go out for a ride today without work on our minds and nothing but sun. It is unusual for us to ride in all SUN but we will take this. Also I realized something today, I think I can make anything into a BLOG post. So many around me especially Cheryl asks…..”What the hell are you blogging about now?” Well, not sure but I keep posting it seems. It’s fun, I am learning things as this BLOG grows and most importantly it’s a constructive distraction from everyday life. So, I guess that is what I am blogging about….everything and anything that seems interesting.
Even today’s little ride to lunch was fun. Taking pictures does not take away from our riding it adds to it. This blog is a journal of our trips, our lives and the many things we find interesting. That’s what it is all about….nothing more nothing less. I think I have answered that question, “what the Hell am I Blogging about!”
So, What Do We Canadians Have To Be Proud Of ?
