The Littlest Hobo - One Steph Beyond (and friends)

I loved the Littlest Hobo as a kid. My friends even played the song for me at my leaving do. I decided to record a line in various countries along the way. I was going to save showing anyone until it was finished but....ah what the is the first part for the first leg. Next two verses will be recorded in Canada and Africa! I hope it brings a smile to your face :) Enjoy!

Still going - Kinda!

You may have gathered by now that I have swapped Rhonda in Canada for a caravan in Wales for the summer while I pay some attention to my body and continue my recovery.

Meanwhile back in British Colombia - Rhonda is getting some work done to reduce vibrations. They are not particularly bad on this bike but as I have now suffered multiple injuries, my body has become super sensitive to the low frequency, or any level vibrations. With the help of Honda Canada (who kindly supplied the budget) and Honda Kelowna who are doing the work, we are working on a few ideas. The devil is in the detail and I feel small changes could make all the difference. We are looking at suspension, footpegs and hand grips.

Meanwhile, back in Wales.............

The Devil at the crossroads

My old friend Pete (Bog) looked me in the eye as the tears rolled down my face once more and said 'Steph?' Pause for dramatic effect. 'It's time to go home'.  He said it with such concern and love that the sobs came then from the depth of my soul. At that moment I let go of the months of pain, heartache, teary conversations and down right torture. It was time to face the facts! It was time stop beating myself up. I had to come to terms and make peace with my situation.  It was time to go home - or was it?
