On the West Coast

We're in Deer Lake right now. We took the ten-hour DRL bus from St. John's yesterday; happily, we had no problem getting our bikes on board in spite of the conflicting reports we had heard (wrap your bikes, box your bikes, they're out of business, they don't take bikes). We wound up getting up gawd-awful early (5am) after a lateish excellent meal (11:30pm) just so we could pack, bike to the Memorial University bus stop, and then take our wheels off and wrap our bikes in plastic sacks. The trip was made more tedious by our forgetting our reading materials, deck of cards, chess set, and MP3 player in our bags under the bus, so we had to distract ourselves by looking out the window into the foggy morning and watching (it pains me to admit this) the Olsen twins in some lame movie about a reality TV show, "The Adventures of Stitch and Lilo", and the modern version of "Freaky Friday." Blech.

The campground last night was surprisingly empty, and we chatted with Chris and Susan from Ontario, who are cycling in Newfoundland for a week. We wound up not getting the early start we intended today, so we just had a warm breakfast at a gas station, and we're getting ready to climb some big hills into Gros Morne. We'll get to Trout River tonight or tomorrow. Woo hoo!

Hey, leave Lilo & Stitch alone. They're the last cel animated disney film ever, and a pretty good one at that.
