Why is it even though we do not have to pack up our home for the night when we stay at a hotel that we still cannot get away before 9:00 AM? I guess that is just when we are supposed to hit the road . . . no sooner . . . but maybe later. Continue reading
Well, we didn’t fall down once today. We fell down twice. Continue reading
Another day of sunshine for our motorcycle adventure! We packed up fairly quickly this morning despite the distraction of a curious squirrel exploring my motorcycle.

Just an update before we head out this morning. Jeremy and I discovered that the shift lever on my bike is the exact same part as my brake pedal. Because my bike is an automatic and I, to date, have never used my foot shift lever since I got my bike, Jeremy did not have to Macgyver a brake pedal out of a stick or a piece of dog poo for me this morning. We got a good laugh out of how we could use doggie number two to make a brake pedal last night though. I know, I know. I should stop talking about poo.
Despite the on and off rain, riding the 138 east of Montreal towards Quebec is a beautiful ride. It was turning out to be a fantastic start to our trip until Jenny ran out of gas. And got rear-ended.
