A little trip to Kelowna, BC, Canada (Eh!) for some dirt, sun, swimming, and just hanging out with Friends.  Vicky and Jim Fitlow from Utah, Scott and Robynn Ferris from Vancouver, and Kierstyn and I played for a few days, then we hung out with Kierstyn's friend Rebekah - for the first time they have seen each other in 10 years.  What a hoot!  A shout out to Dave Rolleston and also to Kelowna Cycles for hooking us up with some needed parts and ride ideas and especially to Tannille Stickley for arranging for some sweeeet! Canada riding gear to end up in Peter's hands.  Cheers!
