Biked from Hope to Jasper and back with my dad when I was 15 or 16. We tented on the side of the road most nights. Ate a lot of canned Irish stew and cream of wheat which I don't think I've ever eaten since or will eat again. I see the traffic out there now and it seems a lot less safe now to be out on the road. From Hope we took Hwy 1to Kamloops then Hwy 5 to Tete Jaune Cache, then Hwy 16 to Jasper, Hwy 93 to Lake Louise then Hwy 1 back to Hope. It was a grand adventure
If I don't try, I've already failed.
