Touchdown.

The time right now is 2:39.

At 1:07 this afternoon, my dad left me a message on my cell phone, saying they had touched down at the border.  At 1:31, I received this comment from Laura Craigen:

Allan called today and at 1:06 they hit the border, made it safe and sound,  photo shoot as proof they made it and then back to the motel.

And so there you have it.  Just a few minutes after one o’clock today, a dream that was over a year in planning and 28 long days of pedalling in the making, was finally realized.

I can’t wait to see the pictures.

    Allan called last nite and they went to a baseball game yesterday, took the day off and actually got on a bus (trolley) Sounds like they spent hours on the bus, they probably could have ridden their faster with their bikes. Today they are dismantling their bikes and putting them to rest for the trip home tomorrow. (that has to be emotional for them) We are looking forward to seeing them all on Saturday at the Powell River Airport. If all goes well they should be flying in at 5:20PM. that is if they make it through customs and as we have travelled with Allan be prepared boys to get searched!
