We are not done yet. We are still staying in Port Bruce, Ontario, with a lovely family. My mother is currently finishing a few things in Duluth and then she will head out in the Prius to Port Bruce. She will arrive on Thursday, and pick us, and the bike up, and keep going to Buffalo. There, we will visit the YMCAs, do day trips throughout New York with my mom, and have some fun sharing our story. The following Tuesday, my mother will be on a plane back to Duluth and we will have the Prius with a bent-out-of-shape tandem on the top of it. From there we will continue on the same route that we would have biked, stopping at YMCAs and continuing our adventures. We weren’t really looking forward to driving a car to the YMCAs and trying to promote exercise so we will be looking into a lot of hiking. We will try to find the largest mountain or hill in each state and hike up, taking some wonderful pictures as we go. This way we can stress the importance of exercise, and the ability to reshape your life (healthily) around the unfortunate things that take place. So, this blog will not be shutting down, and our message has not ended. If you wish, you can just imagine that “b” in bike potatoes has been transformed to an “h” for hike potatoes. But, it was never really about the “bike” in the first place, it was about the meaning behind it. So, stop waisting any time and burn some calories before those hot dogs on the fourth. As far as any Canadians reading this blog, you’re out if luck, because Canada Day is today, so you can exercise tomorrow. I have had a few people attempt to give us money for our future progress and what would mean the most is just putting that money towards your local YMCA, or if not, there is always a donate button on our blog. As far as gas money, we will be driving a Prius. Stay safe, and give a stranger a smile.
Here are some pictures of the bike:
