Day 0: Leaving Vancouver

After an emotional and bittersweet farewell, Simon and I, accompanied by my good friend Joel, headed south out of Vancouver to catch the ferry to the island. Today's ride doesn't feel like a particularly big deal yet; I go for Saturday morning bike rides with Joel all the time, so the magnitude of the adventure isn't obvious to me yet. At this point in still too preoccupied with checking things off lists to take it all in. My power meter is giving me trouble already. I'll take a look at it when we get to the campsite. Not a great start for a brand new and pricey piece of equipment. Saying goodbye is hard.
