The title “Why are you doing this?” is a question I was asked numerous times often by people who did not quite understand the concept of holidays or any journey to experience adventures. Why would anybody who is past the experience of being middle aged decide to get on a bicycle and point his nose south? Well I did, mostly to have a sense of accomplishment, do something not done by Mr. or Mrs. Average and motivate myself to have a purpose again.
I never have been afraid to try new endeavours, never mind that more often than not these came without any successful results. After a less than successful marriage and an accident resulting having a very heavy concussion or light brain injury, the jury is still out on that one, I basically lived in “la la land” for a period close to 5 years. During this time I kept alive by collecting bottles, picking fruit in the Okanagan Valley, washing windows and anything else I could get my hands on.
