    Reedsport nach Surley/ Vancouver

    August 3, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Nachdem ich gestern noch bis auf Reedsport gefahren bin, konnte ich heute meinen persönlichen Abschluss des TAT am Atlantik machen.
    Da ich wusste dass ich noch über 800 km bis Vancouver habe begann der Ritt bereits um 06.00 Uhr.
    Über angeblich eine der schönsten Küstenstrassen ging es los. Na ja was hier bis auf wenige Ausnahmen eine Küstenstrasse sein sollte hat sich bisher bei mir nicht ganz erschlossen.
    Aber was soll's. Die restlichen 250 wollte ich dann über die Autobahn machen. Man glaubt es kaum für 80 km auf einer 6, ja 6-spurigen Autobahn benötigte ich fast zwei Stunden. Was für ein Chaos🤤🤤🤤🤤. Nach insgesamt über 12 Stunden war ich am Hotel. Meine Frau war auch kurz zuvor angekommen.
    Morgen holen wir dann Ihr Motorrad und dann sollte ab Sonntag einer weiterreise nichts mehr im Weg stehen.

    Day 33, Saturday June 11

    June 11, 2016 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Packed up our stuff from Erin and Vance's and headed out around 11.

    We had a couple of stops, but we made it out to the Assembly Hall close to 1. Tom and Sherry were there with Sherry's family and mom and dad had also arrived. We went for a quick tour of the hall. Troi of course got excited about the sound booth. He got talking with a couple of the brothers and managed to get a ticket to the graduation program (he had declined the invitation when it was first offered).

    They have renovated the Hall since we attended assemblies there and it is quite beautiful.

    Home around 3 to find my sister Sue and my aunt and uncle Jim and Pat waiting for us. Then shortly after we headed to one of my cousins' place for a family dinner. Met two new family members - Camila -7 months old and Sawyer - 6 months old. Had sore muscles the next day from tossing Sawyer around - he's a big baby.

    Comfort Inn and Suites, Surrey

    Hotel Info:

    The hotel is quite 'comfort'able. We had a queen suite, which was a room with a divided sleeping area with TV (divided because the wall doesn't go all the way to the ceiling) and a living area with TV, sofa(bed), chair with ottoman, coffee table, desk and chair, and small kitchen area. Kitchen has a fridge with an amazing large capacity and a microwave and small coffee pot. (the hotel provides pouches of coffee, if you use your own you will need to get basket filters).

    Breakfast was very good. For our two mornings there were eggs with bacon and eggs with sausage. Toast, bagels, muffins, waffles, juice, yogurt, etc.

    2 towels only provided.

    On Sunday we had a large group that wanted to have dinner together. No one had the capacity in either room or home for all of us to eat together. None of us wanted to go to a restaurant and it is difficult to visit with a large group in a noisy restaurant. So we inquired at the front desk and were given permission to use the breakfast room. We had Chinese food delivered and brought our drinks and we had a delightful time. The front desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. In addition, we had asked the restaurant to send plates and cutlery. All that made it was chopsticks. The delivery boy would have gone back to the restaurant to get them but the hotel happily provided enough.

    All in all a very nice experience.

    Graduation Day

    A beautiful experience.

    The students in the class (#9 SKE in Canada) raised the funds to bring Brother Schaeffer and his wife out for the Graduation. Brother Schaeffer was the chairman of the program in addition to giving a talk in addition to the introductory comments.

    There were interviews of the brothers who had the job of running the school, getting the accommodations, looking after any problems the students may encounter, that sort of thing. For example, the second day of class the closet shelving in Tom and Sherry's place fell off the wall. The brothers asked if there were any problems with their accommodations. Tom told them and that day or maybe the next a brother was there to repair the problem. Others had car problems and there were mechanic brothers who were there to fix it. The purpose was to make the school as stress free for the students as possible, so that they could focus properly.

    There were interviews of the students and what they appreciated most from the school. There were also reenactments of nice service experiences some of the students experienced while they were attending the school.

    Afterward the brothers provided some beautiful finger foods and there was lots of time allowed to visit and catch up with many old friends and meet new ones.

    We saw many we haven't seen for years.

    Later Tom and Sherry's guests that were still around met at our hotel for a Chinese Takeout Dinner.
