    as I said it Apparently it s just pronounced Deborah As I explained what I was doing she made an observation that in her opinion it was tough to emit emotions through emailing and texting Robert Carmichael designed the 1987 version of the loonie and lived in the Echo Bay area How many times have you misinterpreted someone s tone in an email Or at the very least read into their tone only to discover it was just you projecting I have done this far too often I tend to dissect texts and emails far more than I should attempting in some manner to attach the writer s tone I don t think I m alone in this In the book I m reading research has been done to indicate a disconnect between how we communicate in person and how we communicate online In fact one of the unfortunate statistics is that we tend to be nastier online than we are in person Part of this has to do with online forums where you can remain anonymous but I can attest personally to writing emails with a more aggressive tone than I would ever have were I talking to that actual person I m not necessarily saying this is a good or bad thing but it s been interesting to hear opinion after opinion over the past 5 months that we re becoming poorer communicators at least in person I m thankful for my interaction with Jean today She shook my hand and wished me luck while looking me in the eyes It was an exchange I will not soon forget From The Road Video Blogs TMO New Year Sunday 01 January 2012 18 40 Day numberless days Tuesday 01 November 2011 00 00 Day 274 279 212 6 km

    the air And Oprah where will we go in tv land without Oprah With the slowing down of reality show successes networks are scrambling to find their niche to find programming that engages as many demographics as possible Even watching the news these days seems painful One network as part of their primetime news hour plays humourous youtube clips Perhaps it s to inject some fun into an otherwise dire newscast full of murders war and all else deemed doom and gloom But covering the sensational seems to have a broader scope than ever In Jaron Lanier s book You Are Not A Gadget the Bear Stearns report says For as long as most can recall the entertainment industry has lived By the axiom content is king However no one company has proven consistently capable of producing great content as evidenced by volatility in TV ratings Someone else can dissect why I didn t flick the channel last night and instead wasted half an hour of my life I ll never get back The realization for me is that as much as I think I have it tough sometimes out on the road that the 84 Citation doesn t quite live up to a real bed a real shower and the other comforts that come along with a home I m really looking forward to getting back out on the road My program of choice for the next couple of weeks will be Superior Big open water stunning sunsets rugged Canadian Shield I don t think it gets much better We can sometimes get sucked into a world of garbage because it simply seems to be the norm in tv land with a few exceptions of course But outside outside in our own backyard holds so much wonder and so

    of distance run across this country In one way it feels like I should be further In another I can t believe I ve run 3800 km I feel elated to be halfway across Canada I also feel overwhelmed to only be halfway across Canada Every conversation I have with the people I meet fuels my fire for doing what I m doing I stopped today at a small resort to get some water and ended up staying for a turkey sandwich As soon as Carol one of the owners heard the reason I was running she went on a tangent A good tangent She s a concerned parent who feels like she s losing her daughter to all these screens Her and her husband try to employ a lot of students and continually have issues with things like texting during work hours Everyone who I talk to has a story From being passionate to being enraged anything but a sense of apathy is present in their tone These screens have a pulse that is causing a stir And hopefully that s a good thing It makes me feel validated that the work of my friends colleagues educators parents and others to expose children and youth to the outdoors is not only worthwhile but prescient as well From The Road Video Blogs TMO New Year Sunday 01 January 2012 18 40 Day numberless days Tuesday 01 November 2011 00 00 Day 274 279 212 6 km total 7524 5 km Sunday 23 October 2011 00 00 Lake Superior Video Blog Tuesday 02 August 2011 00 00 Day 146 38 6 km total 3164 7 km Sunday 12 June 2011 00 00 Day 133 Tuesday 31 May 2011 00 00 Times Colonist Thursday 27 October 2011 00 00 Colin Harris ended

    So for the first time in over 5 months I ran east It felt strange but at the end of the day I still got in the distance that I needed to In total it was an 11 hour day But my ride home was with Mike He works in Sudbury and was on his way up to Sleeping Giant Park in Thunder Bay to meet up with his kids to do some camping for the weekend We had a great conversation as he drove me back to the RV He filled me in on some of the First Nations events going on in the area as well as some concerns among the Elders about our environment He left me with a generous donation and his parting words were Keep your ears open to everything that you will encounter on this journey the trees the animals the wind you are on a special journey Good advice Koona playing dead From The Road Video Blogs TMO New Year Sunday 01 January 2012 18 40 Day numberless days Tuesday 01 November 2011 00 00 Day 274 279 212 6 km total 7524 5 km Sunday 23 October 2011 00 00 Lake Superior

    popular spot and is usually packed It was my halfway point today for the run so the RV was parked here and I have just returned after finishing today s distance It is certainly vacation time and so this locale proves to be an interesting people watching venue for someone who s going to spend the rest of the night in this parking lot There are likely other places that I could drive to that would be quieter and more secluded but for some reason this place feels familiar I don t even drink coffee however I do have a soft spot for apple fritters After yesterday s run I did find a little conservation area outside of Lively that had a lake So it was great to go for a dip and bbq some good food in the parking lot It s been a long couple of days and it will likely be a long week still ahead But the anticipation of arriving in the Sault is worth the push Ivan picked me up at the end of today s run Once he found out what I was doing he told me he had had this very conversation with his daughter this morning about buying the latest igadget And to walk the talk he bought a mountain bike so that he could go for rides with her Pretty cool From The Road Video Blogs TMO New Year Sunday 01 January 2012 18 40 Day numberless days Tuesday 01 November 2011 00 00 Day 274 279 212 6 km total 7524 5 km Sunday 23 October 2011 00 00 Lake Superior Video Blog Tuesday 02 August 2011 00 00 Day 146 38 6 km total 3164 7 km Sunday 12 June 2011 00 00 Day 133 Tuesday 31 May 2011

    that makes Science North one of the main attractions in Sudbury Whether it was a flying squirrel presentation or seeing beavers porcupines skunks turtles and snakes both kids and parents got an up close view of some amazing creatures There will always be a debate about these animals being in captivity but when you see these kids being exposed to creatures that they might otherwise be scared of it s hard not to see some of the benefits that come from spending a day in a place like this The hope is that places like Science North can have a positive impact on the mindset of youth and that years down the road they can develop a greater sense of appreciation for this amazing web of life we live in I took in the IMAX film Hubble It s pretty mindblowing to not only see our planet from space but to get a glimpse of some of what s out there The fact that we re precisely the right distance from the sun and just on the right axis to support life is pretty incredible It s an amazing planet And we live an amazing country Sudbury woohoo I spent Canada Day running only a half marathon before deciding to call it quits Today I ran about 36 and am getting ready for a long week of some good miles in an attempt to make it to the Sault The feet are feeling good and healing and my left leg is coming along My thumb is getting a work out as well This morning took about 45 minutes to get a ride but this afternoon only took 5 minutes From The Road Video Blogs TMO New Year Sunday 01 January 2012 18 40 Day numberless days Tuesday 01 November 2011
