    Hello: This is a test blog post sent from my Viliv Ultra Mobile PC via the Iridium Sat phone and a modem connection. I am sitting in the sleeping cabin of WiTHiN typing this up. It if works, a copy should be posted to the blog at http://www.adventuresofgreg.com, an email sent out to everyone on the email update list (if you are not on the list and would like to be, please sign up at the bob URL above. A copy should also be sent to the Facebook page www.facebook.com/PedalTheOcean/

    I head to Vancouver Island tomorrow – traffic should be brutal, as it is a long weekend. I’m meeting my buddy Colin Angus for a beer in Comox, then I drive to Ucluelet on Saturday morning to meet up with Clive and Theodora. Unfortunately high tide is required to launch WiTHiN, and high tide is at 5:00 am or 5:00 pm. I really wanted to take off on Sat, but I might need to wait until Sunday morning.

      Living our dream has plenty of glitches and frustrations to get things to work. I find it is worth it. Although at times it would seem simpler to quit. The rewards are great though.

      I admire you. Thanks for the inspiration to dream is worth the bother.
