In a world increasingly preoccupied with throwaway materialistic things; where people are constantly busy earning money to pay for those things, or so their children can have those things;
This is the story of my dreams of travelling the world by bicycle. Because it's there. And because I dont want to die without experiencing the truly important things in life .

A sense of wonder and a sense of adventure.

Coffee at the Coop.

Day 19.

Just when you thought that Saskatchewan couldn’t get any more interesting right on morning tea time you find a coop store that sells of all things farming supplies and plumbing equipment. Can you believe that? At the counter arranged neatly were a range of chocolate bars. Doesn’t that just blow you away?

When I asked if they would sell me a coffee they replied that they didn’t but that we could help ourselves to one out the back in the staff room and use the table and chairs. So there you go. There was even a copy of the local paper out there that informed us that the tics were about. (Watch out Tammy, private joke). If I see a tic, which incidentally we don’t have in NZ, I must remove it in an anti clockwise direction while pulling a funny face.

Once we were finished at the coop we cycled down the road to the local scrap yard for a photo session before heading to the crèche at McD to post yesterdays blog. The kids are behind the netting but still to close for comfort , and the din!

My Adi just said she’s going bloody good so far on this trip and she’s no spring chic. She advised of this tonight I think because she feels proud of another 145km day followed by a night in a shonky un official campground in Chaplin SK with no shower and the gall to ask for $10 at the honesty box.

We would have stayed in the local Hotel but it looked from the outside like it could be injurious to ones health to stay the night. I’ll go with the tics and give the bed bugs a miss.

We saw a buffalo an otter and what Adi is calling an eagle. Go on someone burst our bubble and tell us there are no eagles in Canada. Adi reckons there are tics in NZ , but I’ve never seen one.

Oh had to fix a couple more of Adi’s punctures today. Her free fix flats vouchers have just about run out with me.
