Up Hill Battle

Just a quick update today. We are at Muncho Lake Provincial Park in Northern BC after a day off at the amazing Liard River hot springs. We are currently just under 300 kms from Fort Nelson and hope to be there by Tuesday. The only thing that stands in our way is a wicked head wind and the Canadian Rockies. The climbs keep getting bigger and bigger and are taking a lot of energy out of us. The biggest problem we are having right now is eating enough calories and drinking enough water to get us through the day.

More bike problems as well. In 2 weeks 4 de-railers have been broken, we have had chains brake, tubes blow and many bent axels. We have seen many Bison on the road and from our understanding there are going to be more and more as we go. Making as film on top of bike touring has been a lot of fun but very challenging and draining. We look forward to a couple of days off in Fort Nelson to regroup and head off on the last leg of our trip.
