25 years ago this time of the year what were you up to? I was still in high school, grade 10ish, dreaming about cars and getting my license. I would of been hunkered down in my room reading western novels by Zane Grey.
I just looked up cedar BC to see where it was. Had no idea it was that close to Nanaimo. I'm just bantering in case your wondering what my point is...lolI was in PG managing Clark Reefer sledding when I had the chance dealing on a new modular for the property
I was in Nanaimo about 10 years ago, When a few of us went out at night we found some pretty rough looking bars lol. There was this one bar with a brick alleyway and when I went inside for a drink I didn't even wanna sit down on their chairs lol. I had one drink played pool and left to the next. Even the pool cues were slippery with old sweat or something lol. But when I went to Parksville I loved it, stayed at some place called tigh na maraYep Nanaimo is in our back yard. But it's a whole different world here. On a clear summer night if the breeze is just right you can hear the banjos dueling lol
You were quite the adventurous person I've noticed over the years Dave.Twenty five years ago I was beginning my training to ride my 18 spd mountain bike up Vancouver Island
in March to Port Hardy, catch the ferry to Prince Rupert and over to Haida Gwaii to spend 4 days riding
about, and then ride from Prince Rupert to Prince George and south.
I wish I had begun my bicycle touring many years earlier...but I'm not complaining, I rode many thousands of miles as it is.You were quite the adventurous person I've noticed over the years Dave.
