[Gothic BC] 49, going on dead: episode 18

In this episode: A short ride on Christmas Eve, voiced on Ukrainian Christmas day wherein I ramble about my new camera, the closing of the local garden shop as a result of the housing crisis in Vancouver and point out the worst of the criminals fuelling it, attempt to use a drive-through bank machine, discover a newly finished bike path to explore later, dodge dogs, do some more exploring, and talk about the very dark place I got to this past December (recovery is not linear.)


[Gothic BC] 49, going on dead: episode 17

In this episode: I take advantage of another break in winter rain to get a quick ride in. I had a hard time voicing this one. I babble about Christmas ornaments and why I am not going to decorate my tree this year.


Special Deal at Shannon Mews, Half the Space for Twice the Money!

Going by controversial Shannon Mews (the complex at 57th Ave where they moved the previously convenient Marpole post office to, see http://www.mbarrick.com/blog/160805/gothic-bc-49-going-dead-episode-3 ) this morning on the way to work I noticed they had at least half a dozen "Now Renting" signs spaced along the Granville side of the development.


I just rode my 45lb bike to the literal asshole of Vancouver and (mostly) back—the furthest I've ridden a bike in over 30 years.

270 K this morning. Overnight lows in the low 260's.
