MacGyvering at it best 1

This is the offending part! Got a hold of Marta from Maya Cycle (maker of the trailer) on a Sunday and she talked me thru possible repair work. A lot of crazy glue and zip ties and looks like we have a solid hold. Thankfully Marta is overnighting a new quick release connector for the trailer so I have two days of cycling about 80km a day to get thru, fingers crossed but feel confident I’ll make it.

Some of you may remember one of my earlier posts prior to the start of my journey (see Sharbot Lake) I met the Konzuks…well their cousin lives in Dauphin MB so the part is being shipped there and I get a home cooked meal and roof over my head. Amazing the generosity of people I only met once and to their cousin Daryl who I have never met to open up his home; and he owns the local bakery…fresh bread!

Happy Father’s Day to my dad who has always been a great influence on my life. To all the dads out there and as a friend said today, not every bond is biological …to all the males who take the time to be a positive influence in a child’s life. Happy fathers day.

Back on the road tomorrow morning and another province cycled.

    Nice work McGyver! Well done!!! Love your father’s day post – biology is easy – it’s the positive influence and commitment that stand the test of time. Big hugs to Uncle Dave from 2 very proud small people and their parents 🙂
