I woke up this morning nervous about what to expect after yesterday but the day started off good with complimentary breakfast. I don’t think the motel owners realized they were going to lose money because of our appetites as Russ and Ry devoured most of it. We hit the road which ended up all down hill at first which was new to us, Russ was singing, Scotty was up right on his bike as always which makes him look like he’s running not biking, Me and Ryan were laughing at him. We were on cloud nine! Scotty spotted two-mountain goat, standing on a rock face about 300 meters up from us. Instantly Russ was chanting at the goat to jump. Quote “Only one of us is walking out of here goat it’s either you or me”. It rained about an hour before noon then the sun started poking through the clouds. Scotty, Ryan and I were in our short and T’s but rusty would not take off he’s waterproof booty’s, pants which he had basketball shorts over top which made no sense to me at all. What a guy!
We arrived in Hedley gold mining town which was so beautiful, had lunch then we pushed another 20km where we added to our international friends Emeric from France and girlfriend Sylviane. The Boys called him “Bizzaro” Sean because apparently we looked and acted alike?????????? They were relocating a camp van from Vancouver to Ottawa, which sounds unreal. Awesome people, and adventurers who we hope to meet up with in Ottawa! They only have to pay hundred per week. What a deal!
We finally arrived in Osoyoos at 5pm without any injures, fights, or bears. It was really cool, as our Dad had mentioned that Baha used to being his entire family here for summer vacations to the same resort every year. (A reason we wanted to stop in Osoyoos), on the long descend to the Similkameen Valley was absolutely breath taking and we immediately realized why he did so. I was in my happy place! Our campsite was right on the lake so we decided to go down to the water to get some pictures of the sunset. While Ryan, Rusty and I were posing Ryan pulled my pants to my ankles as Scotty was taking the photo. I reached down to pulled up my pants and pulled my hammy. Now I have a limp and am looking to get back at Ryan. Just another day in paradise!
