My dad told me one time that sometimes the best lessons are ones that almost kill you. Just don't do it again. I ride with a helmet however there has been more then once I road without it. I am a donor also. However still no excuse eh? How long is your riding season in Nova Scotia?

While I was sliding across the pavement behind my bike, which was also sliding across the pavement, about to be run over by the same car that cut us off, I looked up to see my then girlfriend flying through the air, head first, like Superman. I saw her land on her head, which was firmly encased in her helmet. She survived, with a broken wrist. I always wear a helmet, and never again will I let someone ride bitch.

Clarification: By "bike" I meant motorcycle, not my Schwinn with the banana seat.

As for this guy... does he really think a $25,000 home-built 50' trimaran can make an average of 200 NM per day??? and this is coming from a multihull sailor...

I wouldn't doubt that a home-built 50' trimaran could do 150 nm per day... but not one that costs $25,000...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I dunno. Ask Nigel Tetley, or Donald Crowhurst.

Nova Scotia was pretty well April to end of November. Moved up here to Toronto, and the season is pretty well the same. Getting down to the last few days now.

I have the month of April off and I was going to ride from TX to VT then up the St Catherine's there in Ontario.

Ontario is beautiful, and the end of April should be fine. Weather will still be a tad chilly - 50's or so, but it's nice.

What makes you choose St. Catherine's ? You might as well keep coming the extra half hour and see Toronto.

Well, between Thor Heyerdahl and that Japanese guy who crossed the Pacific on a raft made of pop bottles, he'll make for an interesting footnote...
