Call it a scouting report - albeit a condensed version. Our mate Eric had never done anything over 100 kms - Jaegan & I made the experience as good as possible. Heads up on what to expect - nutrition - stops when he needed it. He LOVED it ! Cannot wait for Round 2 ( that's a good sign ).
Weather was sketchy - it just monsooned thru Summerland on the drive down ( it was quiet in the van ). All good - we only got sprinkled on a few times - and only a few sections of road were wet.
