This didn't start out as a ride report but it's turning into one. Since I can't move it, I'll redirect you over there.

We left Vancouver on June 23 and took a round about way to Ottawa taking 5 days or so. After spending Canada Day in Ottawa, Sherri (an American citizen) and I headed south to Washington DC for the 4th of July. You will find the trip detail and pic's over at the ST forum where the topic was started.
