Save money: park your car and ride a bike

So I did that.  Left my car in Vancouver and after meeting my wife after her work we went home.  Of course we checked that car would be in a spot that it wouldn't get towed the next day.  Trouble is we didn't go back to town the next day....nor did I think once about where we parked the car.  Apparently the car DID have to be moved by 3pm on Monday.

Somebody moved it for us and charged me $150.

I was convinced that we had parked it somewhere just a little better and my tired legs protested as I turned the bike around to ride another 5km to the compound.

The theory was good.  Poor execution of the theory cost money.

The Blog

My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!

I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.

The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.

September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.

You can sponsor me for the race here: Adventure Challenge
Maybe you should do the race?


Just a quick note about the names of the kids in the house that you will read about: they are made up!
