This would be the final ride in this chapter of the story.  But the story will continue...  I would be in no rush to get back to town, so Teresa and I walked the two kids to school and I leisurely packed up my belongings and headed across town to the Wright's.  One final freebie on the trip would include a breakfast with my other dear friend and his family in Guelph.

By 11:45 I was finally on Highway 86 west taking me through Elmira, Listowel, and Brussels.  I thought it would be fine to stop in on the wonderful Brookside teachers.  Time heals a lot of wounds, and perhaps they (Susan!) wouldn't be so angry at me today and will greet me more kindly.  Sure enough.  It was great to see the staff today and the school year seems to be going swimmingly well for everyone.  I'll be back.

The first person I saw when I got home.

I was home sweet home by 2:00.  I started to unpack and I was opening up my panniers I hadn't had open in a few days.  Sure enough more mess.  Two cans of beer had exploded in my top case and left a stinky mess.  Oh well.  Everything went straight to the washing machine and down in the basement to get cleaned.  I had a quick cleaning up myself and was off walking over to see Shelly at work by 3:00.

And that is about it....  I was so glad to finally get over and see Shelly.

  1. Exploding beer cans??? What a way to end a trip. That'll teach you a valuable life-lesson... always hydrate when you have a chance, don't put it off. Glad you made it back....Regards to you and all yours...Older guy on a Beemer(nj)
