blame canada

hey duders, greetings from Vancouver! 

I have been couch surfing and wandering and what-have-you into Canada (despite some pretty intense grilling at the border for some reason). 

kdhl,  I will not be making it to the south before you leave. I love you.

I have decided to stay out here in the cold wet north instead of flying somewhere because... i worked really hard to get here so I might as well keep on with tradition. Right? Tomorrow I leave vancouver (which I should note that I will be moving here whenever the opportunity arises- It is too cool to describe fully but highlights include: surfing and world renowned snoboarding each an hour away, skateparks, cheap cheap cheap delicious dim sem and sushi, a giant park at the tip of the city and Mountains everywhere!) I have been staying with the couch surfing guru who has been hosting 4-12 travellers each night I have been here. The first night was two german dudes (very funny), two lady musicians from SF that played a free living room show for us (so good, really), a beautiful swedish groupie that matt brudner made out with (you can all give him a high five when you see him as it is very well deserved), three french canadians, a slew of mexican guys and girls, a girl from wales and a girl from melbourne and i think someone else that I am forgetting. So ridiculous and wonderful. 

so, I am going to try and head north and fly home from Juneau I think. If the path is too hard or at any point the trip sucks, its back south or east or... somewhere. Thats the plan at least- its the first actual decision i have made this trip and it wasnt easy. 

Boston: while you have enjoyed 100 degree weather, the thermometer has not crested 65 the entire trip. When I return, I refuse to wear pants for at least 48 hours. Maybe the duration of the summer- time will tell.  For example: i camped in the grand tetons by driving south long enough to not set up camp in 4 feet of snow. Literally! 

Hasta luego mis amigos. Amor para usted.

If your path does, in fact, bring you to the drrty drrty, I'll be here, waiting with open arms and a man hug.
