Big Trip 2016 - Westward Bound

Finally got around to editing the first episode of this year's Big Trip video. Another run westward with Hammy, full of adventures, laughs, and maybe a couple of rums.

No Video

I think the dates were July 7 to 15. We seem to be leaving the planning till later and later each year....although I do like a good improvisational bike trip!

Ya that was likely me. Hammy and I spent the last night in Canmore, then we split in Calgary with him heading east and me heading north. I took a break from the rain right after you saw me and had a greasy breakfast at the Humpty's at Crossfield. Looks like a heat wave this weekend (+17) so hoping to get out for one last rip.

Looks like you guys had a blast! Beautiful scenery in Canada. Always helps to increase saddle time when you've got great countryside to look at.

Finally managed to finish up Day 2. We end this day at Mussel Beach Campground just outside Ucluelet. Another amazing place. Ranks right up there with Toad Rock, but for totally different reasons.

Whitey and Hammie - thanks for a great "travelogue".

Can't wait for Day 3!

I sure enjoy the videos you two put together. It's like being part of the ride. Thanks for posting and keep them coming. What band is playing the last tune on this video? Great music.

All music in this year's Big Trip is by The Tragically Hip. Kind of a tip of the hat to them. They gave their final performance earlier this year, and they've been a big part of every BT we've ever done (inasmuch as Hammy and I are both big fans and always have their tunes playing in our helmets).
