Calgary! Days 5-6

Finally made it to Calgary, and my brothers house. It was a day of more of the same, although there's a certain feeling to coming around a curve and seeing the mountains again off in the distance. I can't tell you how good it is to see Brain and his family again – I've missed them a lot since they moved from S. Ontrio, and my nieces have grown so much.

And it's also great to know that I don't have to get back on the bike for a few days, and when we do continue on our way, there will be no more grueling long days of highway riding.

We spent today catching up and some chores like a bit of laundry, bike washing, re-organizing he pack a little bit, and a lot of relaxing. I got to play with their Wii, and now I really want one (like I didn't before), especially since my Wii Fit age is only 34. Right now their new dog, Lily, is licking my foot while Molly and I hang out on the couch watching cartoons. Keith and I will be heading out in a bit to meet up with Joanada for dinner and then back to play more Wii with the family.

Tomorrow we'll be back on the road and cruising through Banff National Park. we're ridden this route before, and I can't wait to revisit a nice road after 5 days of boring interstates and the Transcanada.

Enjoy the ride through Banff.
If you can, head north up through Jasper. Say a loud HEY! for me as you pass through.

They'll know who it's from.
