    TR: Guys Trip to the Coast, with Bikes

    Following a successful graduation from kindergarten we took a long week, made a run for the border, pedaled the temperate rainforest, and hung at the beach.

    Left Missoula at 10 a.m. on Monday.

    Started off Junuary in Montana in fine style.

    Seattle by 5, poke around Ballard, and pull up in Larrabee State Park by 10 p.m. to enjoy the world's loudest campground.

    Biked in Larrabee and then Galbraith.

    Made it across the border -- no, actually, I don't have a permission letter from the Cloud Cultette to take our son on a trip, can I cross anyway? Arcteryx factory store (Chinese people like Arcteryx?) and wait just an hour in Horseshoe Bay for the ferry to Nanaimo.

    Biked Cumberland then ferried to Powell River. (Here's a question: why does BC Ferries have such shitty wifi?)

    Rode Millenium Park and then Penticton Maze.

    They don't fuck around with their freestyle parks in Canada.

    Winning at fatherhood.

    Biked West Sechelt then Connor Park. Meh. An hour at the beach but had a two-ferry wait at Langdale

    Drove through the heart of Vancouver and in 45 minutes saw two Ferraris, one Lamborghini, two Bentleys, and one McLaren. We gave up counting the Porsches and AMGs with yellow brake calipers. Took the 5-minute border crossing at Pacific X-ing (will have to remember that one for next time), reupped on beer at Trader Joes, and back to the world's loudest campground. In the morning experienced the full spectacle and beauty that is Seattle traffic and biked the Lake Annette trail to the tunnel on Snoqualmie Pass. Biking was not that great but did get familiar with carrying our bikes.

    Nice! Canada wanted a letter from mom? Seems like that wouldn't be a very official document.

    Yes, they wanted a letter from mom saying we could go to Canada, which I did not have and had never even occurred I might be asked to bring. Talked my way out of it.
