Across Canada 2009-2010 The Road

Day 17 – Explored the Muskokas

Today was an incredible day. The weather was clear and about 13-15 degrees Celsius outside. Add to that a day of exploring lakeside towns through a gorgeous area of Ontario and I couldn’t really ask for more. Right to the sunset the day was almost perfect. I say almost as one part really got to me. Some Ontario drivers seem pretty ignorant.

Its Sunday morning/afternoon, the day is perfect and people are out and about walking dogs, kids taking photos etc and some people still feel the need to drive through the speed zones like their house is on fire. A few times I had drivers right up my ass who then opt NOT to pass me when they have an open oncoming lane. Instead they just continue to tailgate me. I don’t get it. I did however witness a little instant karma this morning though. I’d been out an about for over an hour and had seen a cop parked watching for speeders as well, many of the fore mentioned assorted pedestrians.

I was traveling the speed limit which was 80 and this guy in the Lexus, tailgating me until he can pass blows by me like I was pedaling a Big-Wheel. As I rounded a corner shortly afterward I saw an OPP car pulling a u-turn to chase him. As I passed my busted friend I was sure to give a friendly honk and a wave. Asshole.

Other than that it was a good day. I found an old car nestled in the trees which completed my day about half way through so again, another gift today was. Also, I did meet a cool couple from Toronto who were also out photo hunting, so shouts out to Leanne and Gary.
