Day 7 – Friday

I arrived in Fredericton New Brunswick around 7PM Friday evening. I had quite an interesting ride there. It took me about 7 hours to get to Fredericton from Halifax, which is normally a 4 hour drive. While I was riding, it struck me that I haven’t checked my oil level. I thought it would be ...

Days 6 and 7

On Wednesday, I rode the ferry from PEI to Nova Scotia, it cost me $34 for a motorcycle. I can’t believe people on bicycles only pay $16. My motorcycle is almost as small as a bicycle. But toll booth Susan told me that because it has an engine, it costs $34. I arrived in Halifax ...

Days 4 and 5

After arriving in Charlottetown, I spent around 3 hours looking for a cheap hotel since the only hostel in Charlottetown was apparently closed down a couple months ago. I searched like crazy, I even went to the University of PEI to see if they had any rooms.. No luck, and every decent hotel/motel/inn in Charlottetown ...

Days 2 & 3

I finally arrived in Charlottetown PEI after 2 full days of riding. I left Montreal around 12:00PM yesterday, I was planning to get to Fredericton by 9:00 or so, but after around just over 500Kms of riding, it was pouring down pretty hard, it was dark out, and I seriously felt like my life was ...

Day 1

I arrived safe and sound in Montreal around 8:30PM yesterday evening, after 9 hours of riding my motorcycle. The motorcycle ride was quite different than what I had expected. My back and buttocks were very sore when I first started out. After around 350Kms, I ended up adjusting my backpack, and that made an astounding ...

Road Trip Preparation

I’m almost all prepared for my trip out to the Maritimes this coming weekend. I have purchased a Swiss army knife, a saw, a raincoat, a tarp, a tent, saddlebags (for my dirt bike), granola bars, dried fruit and power bars. I have ordered new tires for my dirt bike, and I still need to ...

Hwy 401 Drive-by Murder

Early Sunday morning, a 21 year old was murdered in cold blood while driving along the 401 in the latest drive by shooting. Although police are revealing very little detail about the motive, it appears that the killer knew whom he was targeting. Many of the murders that have plagued Toronto in the last few ...

NHL Player Lockout

It looks like the NHL and the NHLPA may not come to terms on Player’s contracts. I’m going to be very upset if a lockout happens. Hockey is the one thing I look forward to in the winter. With the extremely cold weather, there’s nothing better than sitting inside a warm house watching a hockey ...
