"It changed my life," he says. "Anytime I see someone from Canada, I have to say hi and repay them for the welcome that I felt when I was in Canada."
He's a history buff and tells me all kinds of stories about Pennsylvania. He also says I should meet up with my dad at the welcome centre at the NY/PA border
Turns out dad was at the welcome centre, but he didn't see me, so he went to another travel centre, further down the highway.
Alan waits with me until he comes. Then, him and my dad actually lift my bike up and put it into the back of this huge cube van he rented! RENTED!
If I had known he was going to rent a van, I might've toughed it out and actually driven the whole way back myself. I would've been tired but it would've been worth it. Feeling like a mountaineer forced to come down from Mount Everest because of bad weather. I had to back out of my plan to circle Lake Erie and Lake Ontario in a giant loop. Who knows when I'll get the chance to tackle that again? Oh well, I guess I'll just do the rest in a cube van.
