Although I'm 60, I still work full-time so I would like to thank my employer for giving me the "leave of absence" necessary to make this trip a reality. I would also like to acknowledge my wife of 35 years (Donna) and children, now married; Heather(Andrew) and Bill(Alison). They have always provided me with love and inspiration. Lastly, I must thank my parents; Dad 93 and Mother recently passed - for their support. Mother loved music, choirs and bright colours. This is for you. Thank-you!

In retrospect, part of the reason behind doing this journey is to promote awareness for people going through difficult times. That is why this trip had to be challenging. This trip had to mirror life's good and bad days; life's ups and downs. This trip had to be done "solo" to relate to the "solitude" that each of us carries within ourselves. This trip acknowledges that we truly live for today. The people and situations encountered along the way, become intertwined - become a oneness. We are all in this together - we need one another. From us "humans" to "nature/trees" to "animals", we exist as one. Together, (we) can add value to this world of ours.

On the personal side - relating to health issues, I'd like to acknowledge three (3) cancers that have impacted the lives of people I know; Cole's journey "Childhood Cancer",  Pancreatic Cancer (Robin; Leon) and Prostate Cancer (Fred; Ron). Please consider these when making a charitable donation.  Thank-you.
