Thanks again - I am starting to put together my list and look into the route. Like you say at that point I can see how much space I am going to need.

WOW! That sounds like an awesome trek. I thought i'd give you some advice my dad gave me; if your ever craving something other than the rabbit food you most likely will have on your bike, stop in at a diner with 18 wheelers out front. If truckers like the place it's more than likely to be cheep and good. My dad has ridden the Coquihalla and the Hope-Princeton highway and done a bunch of other crazy bike trips and he has learnt that after riding for Days on end you get HUNGRY! So best of luck!
p.s. june seems to be a smart time to do it seeing as vancouver is AWESOME in the summer!

Thanks for the advice Heather! I'm not big on Diner food - no matter how many truckers are there hehe... but you never know; I may change my mind after a few hundred kilometres!

Did your father ever go through the Roger's Pass? I am looking at routes and the only stretch that worries me is Roger's Pass.

If you find a piece of bark just laying around, scribble a few words on it, apply a stamp and send it as a post card to Isa Manor!

Have a great time, B! Your plan sounds crazy but exciting. I'm sure they have vegan truck stops along the way. Right? are bringing your laptop with you, right?
