This is my first bike adventure, (in 1997!), and my first attempt at a journal. It was also the only suriving page from my very first website (damn you Geocities!)
This trip was from Oshawa, Ontario, to Halifax, Nova Scotia. It took two weeks and covered about 800 miles.
This journal is pretty short, having been hand written in a little notebook I had with me. The pictures were all taken with a very cheap 35mm camera… or was it 110? I forget. I left the formatting as it originally was… before I learned what paragraphs or spellcheckers were good for, by the looks of it.
What follows below is how I originally introduced this online journal at Geocities, using the persona of my old roleplaying character Increased Impact. Aces and Eights was the adventuring team he was part of. I’ve tried to keep it as close in formatting to the original for the sake of completion, nostalgia, and just to show how silly I was.
(oh, all right, always have been)
“I thought you said you knew where you were going!” Increased was looking around like one of the buildings was going to jump him.
Equal adjusted his black blazer. “Calm down, we’ll just ask a yuppie.”
Chevez spotted a refined, light haired man in Armani briskly crossing the street towards them. He pointed, “Here comes one now!”
Increased Impact, Equal Damage, and Chevez Grimlock: The Right On Adventure Story
Increased Impact Strikes out on his own!
After spending years traveling the world with Aces and Eights, finding loot, dodging bullets and outwitting competeing adventurers, I needed a break. So, without the help of any of our high tech equipment or Axels, I decided to visit the country I was born in, Canada, and see if I could bicycle out to the coast. The following countains a map of the route I took, and a journal of my trip.
