A spectator

Rancheria to Watson Lake is 120 km. It was raining and cold. They had snow a couple of days ago. The ride went well. We will start in Watson Lake at 5AM tomorrow. The next 800 km have lot of climbing, very rough road surface, basically seal coated gravel. We would certainly appreciate prayers for safety and for me not to get too discouraged with my progress.

We were fortunate to a big brown friend watch us as we went by. Makes you heart beat a bit faster.

    Bears are a reminder to keep riding Arvid:) it’s obvious your mission is based in love! Praying safety through all the elements of nature

    Good thing you can outside a bear! Have an excellent and blessed journey. And I pray your super crew stays healthy as well. Really cool to read about Lorne praying for you. What a great blessing to have such humble, committed servants on your crew. Here’s to hoping you have a great and bear-less day!!!
