Portal: Best Movie Based on a Video Game Ever!

Brilliant take on Portal as a movie. Just under seven minutes long. I don't think they need to do more, but I might see it if they did.  One quibble, who tests something like that by putting their hand in first?  Come on even Sliders got that right.

1700 km

Sand Ripples @ 1700 km
Our last day on Savary Island, I rode to Indian Point beach, to hit the 1700 km mark. Took a walk on the beach and choose this as my 1700 km shot.

1600 km

Bridge @ 1600 km Enjoying vacation on the sunshine coast, it's stunningly beautiful here.    Still I managed to hit 1600 km on a boring strip with nothing but trees.  Oh well.

While described as a 4-5 day cycling trip, today I met a guy who was doing the entire 135 km trip in one day.  He did Langdale Ferry to Earl's cover ferry (80 km) in under three hours, Google maps guess 5 hours for that distance.  Impressive.

I enjoyed the 42 km I did today, stopping at a local bike shop, having a root beer float at local deli and having and eagle soar past me at eye level.

1500 km, in Kelowna

Boardwalk @ 1500 km
Had hoped to hit the 1500 km mark while in Revelstoke, but came up 5 km short.  Might have been that I only did one round on the Sorrenson 5 km loop.  Course the first round left me thankful for my helmet and thick moss, so that's the way it goes.  Did get two trips down Mt Revelstoke at an average speed of 45 km/h - Wheeee!   And I did 24 km of trail riding on Mt. MacPherson without injury.  It put me over the 600 km mark for July, just didn't get to 1500 in Revelstoke.

I did 5km in Kelowna, along the river board walk to hit the 1500 km mark after a wonderful dinner at the Yellow House - amazing stuffed salmon BTW.  Taking a couple of days off before riding the sunshine coast.
