Thumbs up Packed and ready to roll

Hey, all. Tomorrow I'm off to Bend, OR, taking the scenic route through Canada. Long term dream of mine. For those who might be interested, my tentative itinerary can be seen by clicking on this link: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...65625&z=4&om=1

Suggestion: zoom in real close on Day 8 or Day 9 and then switch to "Hybrid" view. Can't wait to ride those mountains. The days are relatively short (in terms of mileage), with plenty of time for sidetracking, picture taking, sitting in a coffee house talking with the locals. And I may decide somewhere along the line to change the itinerary completely. Except for the first three days, I have no reservations, and with the camping gear I can pretty much go where I want and stop when I want.

So I'll be off line for awhile, but will try to check in when I'm at my sister's house in Bend. Have a great July, all.
