Canada: Snow storm
I woke up in the morning like this in Port Hardy.
So far, I've biked this distance in November.
My goal is to to bike Canada from West (Prince Rupert) to East (New Foundland) in the winter time and mostly on Highways 16 and 1.
100km/65miles, good wind, little rain.
Party in Vancouver
Vancouver- Parksville in Vancouver Island
30km/18miles. Rain all day, slept in my tent behind a pub.
Parkswille- Fanny Bay
45km/27miles. Rain all day, slept in tent.
Fanny Bay- Duncan Bay
35km/21miles. Rain all day, slept in tent, everything is wet. Police stopped me, no light and helmet. Only a warning, no ticket. Whew!
Duncan Bay- Sayward
64km/38miles. Rain/snow all day. Met a kind lady and will stay with her and get my things dried.

Nice weather all day, but starting to get cold.
Waiting for my ferry now. One of the ferries had sunk, so now there is only one ferry. They said that it is scheduled for today but the weather is too bad. I now have to wait until Saturday.
I have been invited by a fisherman to stay at his house.
