It continued to rain all through the night and morning, and so I decided to have a day off in order to buy a couple of things. I aquired some new waterproof gloves – I don't care if my hands get wet, but its uncomfortable to cycle when they are cold. I also purchased a lightweight tarp, so I have the option of either using it as an additional groundsheet, or stringing it up above my tent, in order to keep the rain off, and make packing it away easier and drier. I did some laundry, tumble dried my shoes, messed on the internet and importantly, changed a flight with www.condor.com. This means that now, my paperwork should be all in order for when I re-enter the USA, and I should have no problems. Well, that is the theory. I'm so excited, I'm going to go to the liquor store and get either beer (to hydrate with) or brandy (to keep warm with). Tomorrow, I head down the Cassiar highway regardless of the weather, as I really need to start upping the mileage and get ahead of the autumn which is slowly creeping up.
