About the Book
The first part of this book is about a 2002, 66-day bike trip across Canada that I completed with two friends after graduating from university. It contains my journal entries from that summer and retrospectives on each day of the trip.
The second part is about my coma and brain injury in 2003 and my continuing recovery from that experience. I was close to finishing the second term of my master's program in Victoria, BC and a month away from starting a co-op term with the Auditor General's Office in Ottawa when I crashed that same bike, that I had ridden across Canada, into a tree.
