The View from the Rear–Hospitality on the Road

5 06 2012

One of the things that makes a trip special is the people you meet, both those you already know and those you meet for the first time.

We are grateful for the hospitality of G & M.  They opened their home to us, gave us a bed at the beginning and the end of our trip, fed us more breakfast than we could possibly eat, allowed us to park our truck for the 10 days we were gone and gave us an opportunity to talk about our “shared” children.

The home of G & M. A welcome sight!

In the middle of our trip we stayed with our friend C.  We first met C just over a year ago as part of our Camino group.  Since then, she and M have become an “item”.   We were happy to be able to spend some time with the and it gave us an excuse to cycle through Montreal.  Our timing was great, it was M’s birthday and we got to share a birthday dinner with them.

Thank you to all of you for making our trip more special.

There are also those we meet along the way, who touch our lives for only a moment.  The work crew volunteering their time to make the trail usable.  The two couples who suggested we stop at an art show and have hot dogs for lunch.  The many people who were amazed or horrified at what we consider a holiday, the staff at various places who were extra kind to weary cyclists.

We are grateful.
