What would a journey in Canada be without an appearance by Jason Haney? As dad and I were preparing for our 17-day cruise up the north coast, Jason was getting things in order for a 17-day adventure of his own: a 1,000-mile-plus cycling journey around the Cascades and Gulf Islands. I had nearly forgotten a helmet for my trip, but Jason was quick to supply me with a spare.
We met up at the marina to compare notes on our respective vessels. As always, Jason’s visit re-oriented me and reminded me of that inner flame, and why we fight for it; something I sorely needed in the last crazed hours of preparations. Jason kindles — that’s what Jason does. We parted, wishing each other fair winds.
The greatest adventures, and the deepest friendships, begin in Vancouver.
