Day 0: how NOT to travel
You know the day before you travel? You're running around towns doing ALL the errands you procrastinated on... Day 0 of 82 days of riding Canada. Longest trip so far.
And then you leave your backpack on the back of your bike -- not strapped to you or anything.
Ride away in a sketchy part of town, only to realize "I'm so free and my back is not sweaty..SHIT!"
Rode back to the Gerrad/Jarvis area. It was gone
I was hoping from all the good stuff, helping people that maybe karma -- and it'll still be there. I guess I wasn't good enough... Maybe I should stop cheering for Satan.
Who knows. . .
But what I do not is -- ALWAYS keep a valid passport at home. And never keep your SIN card in your wallet. Did you know your sin number never change? Only when it's compromised, do you get a new one! Whoa
Of course, I panicked. Called jasper.
He came down on his scooter -- Gloria magically found me (she's magic).
And we walked searched the area. Nothing
So steps :
-Call and lock all your credit cards ! Get them sent to the location you'll be in 7 business days!
I didn't realize I had so many
-go to service Ontario w a valid piece of ID. Temporary health card and drivers license can be gotten here
-bank cards were weird. They asked for 2 valid pieces of government ID. NOT EXPIRED.
My recently expired PAL was not enough.
But my citizenship card from 1985 was fine. That along w my passport (I was a baby then!)
I panicked - but due to my recent almost drowning experience - this wasn't as bad. And I breathed through it. Why is my brain so forgetful
Anyways - day 1 will go on!
Traveling with all temporary documents !!!
