We have been in Ontario for ten days now and all I've heard from the locals is how many moose are in this area. I have been on my bike 12 hours a day for 10 days and have not seen one moose but I have seen many other things on this trip Moosejaw, Moose 95.3 fm, Moose signs, Moose socks, stuffed moose and moose tracks ice cream. Please tell me there's something wrong with this?                                 

Last night we spent the night on a field/bug factory in front of a random hotel in Hager. We later became the main course for the mosquitos and there was nothing we could do about! It was raining when we woke up and the bugs were still out so it was a quick exit. We made it to North Bay by 2pm and only had another 60km to ride so we decided to hit subway, as we would! Then WIFI at McDonalds to wait out the rain. The manager came up to us asking questions about our bikes and where we are headed. Soon his employee whose grandfather has PD was excited to hear all about us and or cause, asking how to donate. Next thing you know the staff wanted to get picture with us. While this was all going on the Stone family walked in which had seen us numerous times over the last few days. Mainly in subways! Very friendly people and we thank you for the donations and wish you all the best. We left North bay in full force trying to out run a storm and arrived in Mattawa where we hit a Chinese restaurant. Didn't leave anything on the plates after devouring a 6-person dinner.       

I would like you say a big thanks to everyone who's still interested in us and our cause, following the blogs and supporting us all the way home. WE HAVE RAISED 65% OF OR GOAL and are still pushing.  We will not give up! A BIG Thanks from the MacKinnon Boys
