P.S. When is that train arriving in Vancouver?
There was no train leaving Halifax on the 30th. The earliest he can leave is Oct. 2.
That puts the scheduled arrival in Vancouver Oct 7th at 07:50 PDT.
Zoots is right, but these days our Canadian passenger trains are as good at staying on time as our freight trains are at staying on the tracks. So actual arrival time could vary a lot!
Next Friday a few days after I get back is the monthly Kilowatt-Hour ebike ride, so how about we have a big gathering for that occasion? This will give all the people in Vancouver on this forum who I spurned a bit by sneaking off at 3am with no warning a chance to meet up and be a part of the trek. Steve Luscher has been diligently hosting this for over a year now, leaving at 6pm from the downtown library with an open invitation to ebike riders to join in, and it would be a great for us all to show up with a massive turnout:
Plus, I will have my apparently famous recumbentified-electrified-Xtracycle for people to see and try. I really was planning to be altogether done with the bike in Halifax, but enough people suggested it was worth saving that I boxed it all up. With a 50lb per baggage limit on Via Rail, that meant one box for the bicycle, one box for the Xtracycle add-on and varied bike hardware, another large box for the aluminum rear cargo bin and a few batteries, and then a 4th box for the remaining batteries and electronics. Big thanks goes out to a nameless ebike parts collector and enthusiast in Halifax who helped me out with all that.
As I was moving the hefty boxes one at a time on the weight scale, I couldn't help but wonder how I hauled all this sh$%t out here on a bicycle?!
