23,000km in 105 days followed by 9,000km in 10 hours.
I didn't sleep on the flight and whilst flicking through the inflight entertainment channels what did I find - The Long Way Round, episode 5, in which our intrepid travellers Ewan McGreggor and Charlie Boorman cross Russia and Mongolia on motorbikes. It was quite good fun watching it again.
The bike had arrived as planned and after the quickest customs procedure to date and one hour of reassembly I was on my way. For my first night I headed for an RV park. That's a campsite to you and me, although its not called camping in Canada, its called tenting.
