THE PLAN

We, Caitlin White and Heather Laube, are currently cycling across Canada in order to raise money and spread awareness for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Two Canadians are diagnosed with a form of cancer every 7 minutes and every 7.5 minutes a Canadian dies from these diseases. By supporting our trip you will be aiding your country in coming closer to finding a cure and providing hope to those affected by cancer.

Your donations to the Canadian Cancer Society will allow you to take a leadership role in the fight against this disease. These can be made online directly to the CCS, while check or cash donations can be made payable to Coast to Coast for the Cure and addressed to 357 Kings College Road, Fredericton, NB E3B 2E6.

Although the site only records donations made online, receipts for cash, cheque or money order donations are also issued.

We would like to express our gratitude to you for showing interest in our endeavor and support in any amount would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to contact Heather Laube or Caitlin White with any questions or concerns at coast2coast4cure@gmail.com.

SOME BACKGROUND ON US

Heather is from Springdale (Yorkton), Saskatchewan and Caitlin is from Fredericton, New Brunswick. We met at the University of Manitoba from where we graduated with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Fine Arts this Spring. For the past two summers we worked on tree planting crews in northwestern Ontario where "THE PLAN" was hatched. Earnings from this past season are being used to support our Coast2Coast trip and campaign. We finished planting the end of June, returned to Winnipeg to pack our gear, and left for Newfoundland July 10.

St. JOHN'S - MONTREAL (0-1533 km)

IN THE BEGINNING

Newfoundland is different and wonderful (even discounting George St.) We had a few more days than anticipated in St. John's waiting for the bikes to arrive, but this allowed trips to Cape Spear (most easterly point of North America - whales!) and fishing with new friends.

It didn't rain in Newfoundland until we started riding, which made for a concerted effort to get to the ferry at Argentia. Lots of cyclists on the crossing to Nova Scotia, including an offer for accommodation on PEI.

ON THE MAINLAND

It also rains in Nova Scotia (is tree planting really that bad after all?). Lots of wind and rain (Cait- "I've never had to use my brakes while pedaling forward before".

On PEI we had a solid roof over our head and good friends, plus beautiful sunset at Cavendish. Did you know you can't cycle or walk acorss the Confederation Bridge? So we took the shuttle to New Brusnwick and headed for Fredericton via Moncton.

FREDDY BEACH

High 30's and very humid for the 180km from Moncton to Fredericton. Several days rest to visit, check the bikes and play with friends.

THE SAINT JOHN RIVER (and a new tire)

Leaving after a good rest, Cait had about her millionth flat tire just outside of Fredericton so decided a whole new tire was called for. This took about 3 hours to get straightened out while Heather sunbathed on the edge of the tarmac and talked to Victoria, BC. Eventually we got going and made it through to Hartland.

MADAWASKA - QUEBEC CITY (and new knees)

Tremendous storms (like TWISTER without the flying cows) through northern New Brunswick and Quebec. Heather's knees had been bothering her for several days, and nothing, including rest seemed to help. Turns out the answer was a new pair of shoes.

MONTREAL - WINNIPEG (1533-3941 km) - CALGARY (5149 km) +

Having a handful of fellow tree planters in Montreal was a treat and so we treated ourselves to a few days off in order to visit and explore the city. Well rested we headed straight for Ottawa where the pampering continued with hot meals and a roof over our heads thanks to yet another tree planter.

NORTHERN ONTARIO (the never ending)

Hills, trees, water and rocks...lots of them! That is Northern Ontario in a nut shell. Other then one big storm while on our way to North Bay the weather was manageable. What seemed like the never ending province DID end. After being taken in with open arms by a couple of Heather's relatives in Thunder Bay it was smooth sailing into Manitoba.

WINNIPEG (half way)

Our home for the past 4 years and the half way mark of our trip. Winnipeg sure was a sight for sore eyes (even if we COULD see the city hours before we actually reached it).

A big thanks to all those who have wished us a safe trip and that the wind be at our backs...and for this next leg, we sure hope it is. PRAIRIES, here we come!

WINNIPEG - CALGARY (3941-5149 km)

departed Calgary September 19

BRITISH COLOMBIA (the finale)

GOLDEN, BC September 21
BC seems to all downhill

ROGERS PASS, BC
We thought this would be steep! Must finally be in shape.

KAMLOOPS, BC September 24 (5599 km)

HOPE, BC September 26 (5804 km)

VICTORIA!!! 5992 km

Nothing could stop the Pacific Ocean from looking so glorious, not even a little rain! Between grizzlies, snow and unbelievable landscapes, we experienced some of the best and worst parts of our trip in the last leg...but we made it! With minor bumps and bruises, infinite close calls, and through EVERY kind of weather, we made it!

It has truely been an experience of a life time and we thank everyone who has contributed to our cause, taken us into their homes or even given a friendly honk or wave along the way.

Determination got us so far, but support from family, friends, new friends and strangers got us from NFLD to BC and we thank everybody for a great ride!

Caitlin & Heather

Consequently, the makers have set up specialist programs in addition to repair facilities. This includes vehicles like the Mazda 2, Ford Fiesta, and Citreon C1. These companies figure out also if they will be using the donated auto for charitable features or grant the car to a human currently being or household members in need to have.

Go with solid gray or dark red if you're traditional, a Repp tie (thick navy diagonal stripes with a contrasting color) if you're preppy and a very small, very subdued print in dark colors if you're daring (think gingham or micro-checks in neutral tones).

Over the next few years, with fuel prices expected to steadily increase even more, the sale of small cars is set to rocket. The new technology takes the control of high beam out of the hand of the driver. Therefore, it will be a wise decision to invest in the new technology rather than relying upon the old technologies.

The downside of the car tax rates is the trouble it'll cause to average or lower income people. And while the MR2 can be a bit difficult with stock tires - grip can break suddenly if you push the car to hard - simply putting upgraded to sport tires makes the car hang on to bends as if velcroed to the track. First, in case you were wondering, I did not include the R-Class cars because they do not appear to be very interesting.
