Well today it was a different story. Not so much with the weather that is still miserable, but the ride itself. I have traveled with my wife all along this coast 16 years ago but I don’t remember it to be this beautiful. In fact, we may have taken a different route. Well maybe the truth is that I was not doing that well so many years ago and was most likely sleeping for the majority of it. Matteo is now surely expecting something along the lines such as, “I miss you”, “you should be here with me” or “How can you have missed this segment” but no, this time i want to say a few words to express my feelings for my wife. Sorry Matteo, but if i talk about you all the time chances are that you will lose your hair rapidly 🙂 . As I said before, my then girlfriend and I traveled through this coast 16 years ago. I was not feeling very good back then. Today I was thinking for a very long time under my wet helmet (I have a little hole on top of it so water slowly filters in) how much I love this woman. I realize that is not easy for her to accept in such a positive way all the dreams and ambitions I have, but she manages to understand. One day, In Calgary, I was fascinated about ghost towns and decided to fly myself on a Cessna 182 to Uranium City. At that time i only had 200 hours of flight time, not a lot. Uranium city is truly a ghost town in northern Saskatchewan, it is stunningly eerie. If I was lost there I would have been in quiet a bit of trouble, so I was very hesitant about going. Well, all I had to do was to share my concern with my wife. She approached me and while she gave me a hug she told me that i should do it because otherwise i would later regret it. It turned out to be the best flight i ever did on my own. Therefore Marci, for all you do for me, this WOW is for you.
