Rusty Russ here firing up for all dem Mackinnonettes back home. 

Waking up in a real bed, in a peaceful motel, was again the greatest feeling in the world.The Fair Isle Motel sorted us out with a place that was fantastically out of our league and we could not Thank Them enough. Our Morning consisted of a sausage and egg stunner of a breakfast with our main man Paul Clark (Who legitimately knows all) at the scumptious local PEI diner the Marian's Maid, a radio interview with 100.3 The Ocean and Mr.Scott Chapman, a sprint to the Wood Islands Ferry and eventually finished up with a meeting with Nova Scotian Legend, "Julian" from the Trailer Park Boys, Mr John Paul Tremblay himself! 

The interview this morning with  MC Scott Chapman was cool as the Ocean's location is absolutely brilliant. Situated right down in the heart of Charlottetown, you can look through the glass and see the MC's hard at work. It was really cool for guys like Sean and myself who never had the privilege of being the BIG MEN ON CAMPUS, to be a part of an interview. Needless to say we did not let Scotty or RY do any of the talking. I have to say myself, with all of the editing they do on those radio shows, I sound quite articulate and sensationally well spoken. I am now thinking of  a career in either  TV or Radio. MC RUSTY RUSS has a nice ring to it. But totally depends on who's gonna show me the money! 

The cycle from Charlottetown to Wood Islands was special, the coastline was beautiful with the combination of red and white sandstone cliffs, well rested our freshie legs pumped us from an expected arrival of 430PM to 100PM and pushed the Atlantic that much CLOSER!!!! We were pumped as we rolled onto the ferry three hours ahead of schedule. The ferry was an hour and a quarter, we spent the time sliding around the Upper Deck listening to very interesting and energizing Gaelic and Acadian music. If the watering holes in Halifax have music anything like the ferries they are going to have to deal with three hard dancing, celebrating Mackinnon Boys and one limping, crutching old man in Scotty Mac dancing their butts off all night long. With my variety of dance moves, I am by far the best Mackinnon Dancer which I will unleash on Halifax tomorrow night. While on the ferry, I think we quickly realized how much we missed back home! We have seen so many different things this trip that it has given us a whole new appreciation of what a beautiful part of the country we come from. I am so excited to see my black leather couch. Hanging out on this ferry definitely helped us come to the realization of how close we actually are to arriving in Halifax. I think it is actually started to set it that we might make it to the ATLANTIC.

Sitting upstairs on the deck admiring the incoming Nova Scotian shores, Ry noticing someone walking towards him, turned to Scotty and said "Scotty, Thats Julian from the Trailer Park Boys" ( Very Popular Cult Canadian TV series set in Nova Scotia), the look a like sauntered over and sat down right beside the boys. Scotty pessimistic as always replied, " RY, you are out of your mind, there is no way that is Julian". Within seconds a nice old man walked up to Julian asked for a photograph, got an autograph and then calmly walked away. Ry and Scotty pretty much tripped over themselves to approach Julian and ask for a photo. Listening to our story Julian was very receptive to the idea of us joining him, Bubbles and Ricky in the Sunnyvale Trailer Park for the night. He was actually really amazed that we biked all the way here, calling us "NUTS", we believe that getting called "G's" by Obie Trice and "NUTS" by Julian has really legitimized us!

The race to the Nova Scotia sign was tremendously important. With one province left and Scotty leading Ry by one, this has pretty much become a two horse race. While on the boat, Ry decided to give Scotty a little bit of his own medicine. As you were not allowed on the lower vehicle decks while the ferry was moving, Ry snuck down quickly as an unaware Scotty sat upstairs crushing on Julian. Ry locked Scotty's tire to his frame and waited. When we all went down to cycle off of the boat, Scotty realized within seconds that he was in trouble, trying to figure out the bike lock, he had this crazy, possessed look on his face. As we were being unloaded off of the ferry first, before the traffic, Ry went to move up to the front of the line and cycle off. Scotty realizing his bike was not functional and was going to lose the province, did something drastic, something I never thought I would see him do. Scotty trying to carry his 150 pound bike threw it to the ground, dived out in front of Ry and the other 80 cars trying to unload, started wrestling Ryan off of his bike and almost started a riot with angry Newfoundlanders wondering why none of the cars were unloading. Eventually Ry got lose, won the province and we now sit in gridlock at 3 provinces for RY and 3 for Scotty.They are talking about a race off down Comox Ave to decide the victor! I would love to see that because whoever lost that race would be relentlessly mocked by all of our friends back home forever.
