Saw your pages today. Something else! Hopefully all is well with you. Printed off some pages, especially your wonderful
writeup of the family. Nice to see us, and the poop machine in print. Gil will be pleased to
read what I gathered. I'll try to send another message before to long, and hopefully a message from the
Gibster. All our love,and best wishes, The Boyce family.

Hello My Friend I was sitting at the computer trying to figure out this paper jam in the printer. Wouldn't you know it.
Last page of a project do today. Thought I'd relax for a minute and check out the page.
Kevin you are truly an inspiration to the world. With the passing of good people (people who try to use their stand in life to make the world a
little better) like Greg Moore and Payne Stewart, it just drives me harder to make sure our children grow up and take
these good peoples place. To truly contribute to the betterment of the world. As Marta says "Don't be a filler person"
Someone who just takes up space in this precious world. We must all find the good and follow it!
God Speed my friend, we are always thinking about you ... Ed, Marta, Carly, Amanda and Nicolas

Enjoyed visiting your website and reading your cross Canada adventure. It must be an unforgettable
expierence. Best Wishes. Auntie Audrey
Oct 23 - From : Fraser Williams, Mississauga, ON
Dear Kevin, Just heard from your Dad and he referred me to your site. It has been a awhile since you were
"de-McNalled", but I still remember how helpful you were to me in my fledging computer days. I wish you well in your
current venture. I will be following along from now on. Fraser Williams
Oct 20 - From : Lori, Vancouver, BC
Hey Kevin..you and I have a mutual friend...Dan Kirkpatrick...I met Dan in England a few years ago and Nikki was an
old flatmate of mine...small world or what. Anyway just recently got mail from them and Dan suggested I look you
up...wow..I am impressed. I recently made my way across Canada myself (from Ontario) but under less ambitious
means (I bonded with Greyhound for 3 1/2 days..some would say that is ambitious...others just down right crazy!) I
truly gained a new perspective of my country and what it means to be Canadian in the short days that it took to travel
to Vancouver...I can only imagine what you experience has been like! All the best and enjoy your adventure!
Oct 16 - From : Cathy, Cranbrook, BC
Quick message from the 'Foot Lady'. As I was reading your update from Trois Riviere (sp?), I thought of some news to
pass along. My husband and I are expecting! At first I thought, "why tell Kevin? It's not like we're long time friends". But then again, the topic was about fertility, you did ask for news, and hey, by some perspectives this baby belongs to the world - though I can't see myself being buying into that philosophy with more than superficial agreement.
Trust all is well with you. Husband, Curt, and I are just headed for a week in Montreal. Too bad we've missed you, I would have definitely tried to say hello in person.
Oct 14 - From : Hey Coyote, How've you been doing since the last time we saw you?
Looks like you've travelled a long distance. We last saw you at Kekabeka Falls,On. Remember, we walked you up the
hill before you made you're way towards Thunder Bay, and we went the other way to
Kenora. We finnished our trip about a month later, after going a total of about 3000 km. We stayed for a bit in
Kenora, and worked, but then travelled back to Winnipeg. Now we have moved to Ottawa. Dennis remembered that we had your
card so we decided that we were going to come to the nearest Library to see where you are now, and I must say that you
have made it a long distance. Well, you keep it up, and we are both looking foreward to
seeing you on CBC at New Years. Good luck in the Future, and have a safe trip! Biker Dennis and Biker
Oct 8 - From : Salut Kevin, Je t'ai vu à la télévision hier(le 7 octobre) et j'étais très surpris de te voir dans les côte de Charlevoix près de
de Baie St-Paul. J'espère que cette partie très difficile de ton voyage s'est bien passé. Ne lâche pas
tu es presque au but. N'oublie pas de mettre ton site à jour pour que nous puissions te
suivre. À bientôt
Oct 5 - From : bikerdennis and bikerjackie,
Hi Kevin ! Nice to finally see your web site. We last saw you in Kakabeka falls on our way back to Kenora. I guess the bugs
will soon be gone however I hope you have some sort of heater for the months to come.
Jackie and I completed 3000 km. of cycling on August 7th. It was such a great time though , that we are planning to
go from the Gulf of Mexico to the Canadian west coast. Jackie says she,ll be ready sometime in the turn of 2000.
good luck and see you again
Oct 3 - From : Joanne Chang, Vancouver B.C.

day. I'm looking forward to checking out your web page to see whats happening!!!!! talk to you soon.
Love Jo Jo
Oct 3 - From : David
Fisher, Oakville, Ontario
Kevin What food do you like to eat on your journey? Can we arrange for a meal to be prepared for you at a future rest stop? I'll need your help on this one regarding your scheduling.
My wife, kids and I believe that to assist you we could feed you on your journey. (I hope you don't remember, but I was the fool that had asked you if you had given up on your national running quest in early September)
Please let me know what city or town, time and location that we can send our offering of sustanance or food to you. We are all with you and check the Website for your progress.
Cheers ... David Fisher + (5 year old Jack, 2 year old Molly and 31 year old Margie)

Hey Kevie! This is Kim (Lorraine's daughter). I reallt enjoyed talking to you and I'd love to meet you in the next year ( or whenever you have a minute). I've been trying really hard not to be bored because "boredom is purely internal"
right??!! You're totally cool and I admire you for your strength and determination. Are you doing this for a cause? Well, I
hope you'll email me back soon but have an awesome trip! REMEMBER: Dec.31, StJohn's, on CBC--"KIM IS TOO COOL!!!"
Thanx Buddy! (: Luv and Hope, Kim Harder
Sep 19 - From : Dean Hachey, Claremont, Ont
Good day Kev! Hope things are going well for you as you tackle the last 3rd of your journey! All's well back here in Claremont. After the 3 day party celebrating your departure was over, we realized we actually missed you a little bit. It was great having you stay here with us during your
T.O. stay. Cheers! Keep it up. Dean.

Hi Coyote! ... I was just sitting here in my hot tub with my girlfriend
and I was thinking about you! ... When you get back let's go hit the Grouse
Grind! ... My dad says you're quite a wimp so I shouldn't have any problem
beating you up there! ... I miss you already ... even though I haven't met you
yet! ... You can tell me what my dad is really like! ... he won't show me his
Carpe Diem video :-( ... Love Baby Chernenko!
Sep 18 - From : Caroline, New Orleans, Louisiana USA
Hi Kevin, So glad to be receiving news of your trip on my E-Mail. My husband and I are the pure 100% Cajuns you met in Falcon Lake, Manitoba. We told you to come here to the French Quarter with "Coyote" you'd fit right in. Take care, God Bless you as you reach your "star"
Sep 16 - From : Clare Thompson, Dryden, ON
Hi! Kevin We have been watching your progress ever since you left us here in
Wabigoon. Congratulations on reaching the Capital. Elaine and I wish you the best on the rest of your journey. We will be with you in spirit.
Sep 14 - From : Roy Smith, Orangeville, Ontario
Kevin: Your experience in Toronto has become the rule instead of the exception. You are
absolutely right when you say that the effort is what counts and not the result.
That is what is disturbing about the "Toronto Attitude", it is all result oriented.
We met you in northern Ontario as we made our way to western Canada for a holiday. As a result of that trip I have retired from the Toronto Police Service and we are relocating to western Canada where efforts count more than the results.
May the sun shine on your face and the wind be at your back.
Sep 7 - From : Mike Hollands, Mississauga, Ontario
Hey Kev! It was great seeing you again while you were in Toronto. Too bad about that comedy thing huh?
Just kidding, I actually laughed out loud! Thanks again for letting me join you for 3 days of roadside fun. And for the fantastic foot care too! You worked
magic and I'm sure I'll suffer no long-term effects! I actually really enjoyed it, it felt great.
I hope the rest of your journey brings many more Ridge Roads and safe travels. We'll be watching for you on Dec. 31'st.
Have a great year!!! Mike (Throbby-toes) Hollands
Sep 7 - From : Dave Maloney, Marmora, Ontario
Hi Guy. Saw you first in Havelock on Labour Day in the late afternoon and then on Tuesday morning about the county line between Peterborough and Hastings. I was on my way in to work in Markham. That's quite the
'cicle' you're pushing. Good Luck!
Aug 20 - From : Carolyn Young, Vancouver, BC
Hi Kevin! It's the pregnant one writing to you! Picture this. Me with a big beach ball under my shirt. That's me! I finally
have a moment to send you a message but I have read your daily logs from time to time. What do you mean the dog
pee'd on the roadrunner? Did you pee back? It would only be fair. Well I'm almost finished work but certainly not finished at home. Rob and I better get the nursery going as time it ticking away.
Keep it up, I bet the best part of your trip is yet to come! Thinking of you.....love, CY
Aug 17 - From : Harold Thomson, Winnipeg, Manitoba
Kevin: I met you briefly in front of our legislative building in Winnipeg Manitoba and have been following your adventures from time to time on your website (what a great idea!)
I am glad to see you have weathered the Northern Ontario bush (mosquitoes regretfully wave goodbye to their daily meal) and are headed to Toronto. Best of luck in your ongoing journey.
Cheers Harold Thomson (you have my photo looking at Roadrunner)
Aug 16 - From : Kate McCarthy, Thornhill, ON
Hi Kevin, I was driving home to Thornhill on Sunday August 15 from Sudbury when my husband and my 2year old Daughter
stopped for a quick bite at the Loose Wheel Family restaurant on highway 69. That is where I noticed "The Roadrunner". I was
intrigued by that piece of equipment. I kept looking for the pedals and my husband said that you run in it and not
pedal it. All I have to say is WOW!!!!! I come from some serious athletes in my family so I can totally appreciate every step you take on the highway. Since I saw you that day I have bookmarked your website and will check on it frequently.
I hope the rest of your journey goes well. All the best., Kate McCarthy
Aug 16 - From : Ben Ladieu,
Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Kevin, You are another inspiration to me. my father who is also an ultrarunner, showed me your
website, and I am glad I can look at it. I myself am planning to do a trip, except mine is to
go across my country the USA. I will not be running but backpacking across. my intensions are
similar to yours, meet new people, see the country, see how people live life in other places.
I want to document my trip with a video camera, and interview people on the way, which then
afterwards to be edited into a documentary. I've read a couple of books on the cross country
subject:Worldwalk, by Steven M. Newman, and A walk across America, by Peter jenkins. I want to read another book by
Bill Bryson, on the subject but have yet to get it. This is such a drastic thing that you are doing
and I am so glad that others also share the same desires, and views on things. I have only seriously thought about this in the past three months, but now i know it is in my destiny.
I really hope you make your destination on time, for i need reasurance that it can be done. you are living
proof. I wish you the best and good luck, I will keep watching. Ben
Aug 15 - From : Darrell Holmes,
Hey Kevin, It was great to see you after three years. I had a fantastic time in Sudbury. I wish we would have had more time together, but we made the best of the time we did have and I enjoyed it immensely. Ana and Samantha send their love and wish you well on your journey. I am signing off, I'll drop you an e-mail in a few weeks. I look forward to your journal entry when you hit Orillia. Until then, save travels my friend.
Aug 15 - From : Morna Ropert,
Hi Kevin Glad to hear you had a good time in Sudbury. Got my first update today and was interested in your comments on fun-how true.
Am keeping a second copy of the article in the Soo Star in case you do not get the one I sent to
Vancouver. My daughter Judith says she sent you a message from Calgary. Our son Steve who you met is looking
forward to another year in Tanzania. I must leave Bruce Mines and the north channel for a week in Toronto but unlike you i am not looking forward to it!
Keep running. Morna

Hi Kevin!!! We are a family of four who heard your campfire talk at Kabeka Falls, Ontario roughly July 8th or so. We
have been thinking about you and drawing inspiration from your endeavor, and your words about it. We wish you all
success and thank you for being so alive and sharing yourself with others. We have a Kevin,
8 years old, in case you didn't know, Kevin means gentle and lovable, you seem to have much of both. We will follow you and wish you all great
gifts and blessings. The Tafts
Aug 5 - From : Alan Covey,
Been following your trek these last few months and am truly envious and excited of your adventure.
I will follow this up with a little dare if you can stomach some ROADKILL. Best of luck as your journey continues.
Aug 3 - From : Donna MacIntosh
(CHIJer), Toronto, ON
Hey fellow adventurer, been following your trip and am enjoying hearing about your slowed down version of my completed trip. We passed many other cyclists along the way who mentioned that they encountered or atleast heard about the guy that was running with his orange cart!! Your famous!! (or nuts!!!) Good for you for sticking with it, you're halfway there now.
I'll soon be heading back to Vancouver, I thought I'd drive this time. I'm leaving Toronto next Wed, Aug. 11 and will be heading north to Sault Ste Marie (then I'll go through the States, less construction). Hopefully I'll see you somewhere along the road, don't worry, my driving is better than my cycling. If you know exactly where you'll be on that day, let me know, it would be fun to meet up and swap travel stories again.
In case I don't see you, I wish you the best of luck on the rest of your journey. Have fun!!

Aug 1 - From : Haney-Hiscocks Family,
Hi Kevin. We met briefly in "mosquito land" Upsala,ON. You were just getting ready to leave for the East and we were
heading West. Well we made it to Vancouver (we being 3 boys and 2 parents). Now we are back home after 4 weeks on
the road. It is truly a wonderful feeling to travel this lovely country of ours. Good luck to you. We will be sending a
postcard your way. You know how we got your e-mail address? I had taken a photo of you and the Roadrunner in
Upsala. When I developed my photos, I noticed the fine details- a Web site! Ever neat! Continue! We will be following your progress. From the Haney-Hiscocks Family
July 31 - From : Roy Smith,
Kevin: We met you at a gas station on Hwy 17 just west of Kakabeka Falls on the morning July 7th as we motored our way west. Keep up the pace.
July 30 - From : Amy H., Waterdown, ON
Kevin, I think it's awesome what you are doing! I stopped in at Pancake Bay today, but unfortunately missed
your talk. I did see your trailor and that's where I got your website name. I just want to wish you luck and hope
the rest of your journey is as enjoyable as the first part has been. Where else are you stopping up there?
If your schedule gives you time, try to stop at the pictographs. They're amazing! Good luck and have fun!
July 30 - From : Marc Morin & Bob Price, Vancouver, BC
Way to go Kevin. We're impressed. I guess you can eat anything you want & still lose weight. We on the other hand can't even smell a donut without packing on a Kilo or two. I can't believe you have gotten soooo far sooo fast. seize the day!! & avoid the SEMI's, mosquitos, blisters etc...
Regards & Great Luck. Bob & Marc
July 29 - From : Richard Mager, Raleigh, NC
Hello Kevin, My name is Richard Mager. I'm Chris , Paul and Jacquie's brother. I thought I would send a message
wishing you luck on your journey. I wish I would have been in Winnipeg to help show you around with Paul and
Gord. I live in North Carolina, however, which limits the time I spend in Winnipeg.
It must be an amazing journey. You will be able to look back on it the rest of your life. I hope that all of Canada is
treating you with hospitality. I have always wanted to hop on my bike and just keep on riding, so I tip my hat to you for following your dreams of running cross
country. I travel to Vancouver often for work, so I may see you some day when I visit Chris.
Keep up the good work.
July 26 - From : Bike with Mike, Kenora, ON
Hi Kevin! Thank you for your e-mail. I am sure you were glad to meet Jane in Wawa
after travelling so many Kilometres by yourself. It sounds like your trip is going well. I met John Ryan in Thunder Bay, as
well. It's interesting to meet other people like yourself and John Ryan travelling across Canada for a cause or a personal journey, etc.
I am now in Kenora. We have a fundraising BBQ here tomorrow which I'm looking forward to.
I wish you smooth travels as you work your way to Newfoundland. Good Luck and have Fun!

the luck in the world and will be with you in a postcard when you arrive in St. John's. Thank you

a chance to experience your talks. Stay the way you are and I'll be watching CBC at 11:45, Dec. 31!
Good luck! Emily Kerton, Kakabeka Falls, ON :)

July 2 - From : Roland and Edda Swan, Wabigoon, ON
Hi Kevin: Guess by now you are on your way again, having left Ignace and heading for Thunder Bay. It was fun meeting you again in Ignace and spending the better part of the day with you. The fire works on July 1 in Wabigoon were fantastic - you would have enjoyed them a lot. Marlene and Norman and the girls were in their sailboat on the lake and saw both Dryden and Wabigoon Fire works at the same time - try and beat that one! We are so glad to have met you and hope that you will keep in touch. We will certainly follow your journey on the e-mail. Hello to Jane - hope we will meet you someday too. Keep on going. You have a fantastic attitude and will succeed at anything you set your mind to, even going across Canada on the rail!!! We'll be in touch again. Love Edda and Roland

June 24 - From : Al Howie (Ultra-Ultra! Long distance runner), Victoria,
Hey buddy! You're really living! I'm green with envy! Yours is a
true adventure and you're coming through like a true hero! For the duration of my own
Trans-Canada run I was chained to a relentless, sometimes tedious treadmill of 'run, eat,
run, sleep, run' by my self inflicted goal of a new Trans-Canada record, the rather
audacious intent of averaging over 100 kms a day and, most significantly, my obligations
to my sponsor the 'Elks and Royal Purple of Canada' to come through and raise money for
their national charity 'the Purple Cross Fund' which assists children with special medical
needs. I was pampered the whole way, as long as I put in the miles I could indulge in as
much Hagen-Daz vanilla ice-cream as my heart desired,I met my running goals and in excess
of $750,000 was raised. But for a pure running adventure, a true 'pioneer of the'90s'
endeavour; your efforts have mine beat hands down!! "Run on buddy; we're proud
of you!" Al Howie, Victoria BC Canada
June 22 - From : Shannon Gadbois, Brandon, MB
Hi Kevin, What a great idea to travel across the country to bring greetings at the turn of
the century. I saw your story on the local Brandon news station and was compelled to write
and say "great idea and good luck." If you stop in Kingston, go to the Pilot
House pub downtown. My brother is the manager there - lunch is on me! My brother's name is
Troy Gadbois - He's the manager at the Pilot House on King St. Best of luck. Shannon

Vancouver to Cape Breton on his bike. He told me he met you somewhere along the way and
asked that I inform you of his trip. He is doing well after meeting with his girlfriend
for a couple of days in Montreal. He sais hello and good luck to you. If you happen to go

Hello Favorite Super Hero!!! I love your ramblings on missing people. I'm in the
zone with you on that one. Been living in Lancaster for 8 months now and have the missing
people down pat. It's not entirely a bad feeling kind of makes me all warm and fuzzy at
times! Would love to know your route through Ottawa. I hope to drive up to visit with you
or ride my bike along side you awhile. Also have family in Orleans so if you need a place
to crash please let me know...my Sis-in- law is an exceptional cook :) My knowledge of
cows, horses, birds and mosquitos has increased dramaticly through your findings. I'm
starting to think of you as a "Bill Nye the Science Guy" with wanderlust.
Thinking of you always and thank you for being such an inspiration! Love ya, Julie Glavind

2) Where did you get the idea to run across Canada?
June 4 - From : David Blaikie, Manotick, ON
Dear Kevin: Just a short note to congratulate you on the progress of your run and to wish

Hi Kevin -- this is your Uncle Ray. I was wondering which route you'll be following
from Toronto to Ottawa. Are you going along #2 highway or are you taking highway 7 through
Peterborough? Who knows, you might meet somebody you know on whichever route you take!
Wishing you well on your endeavour -- Uncle Ray and Aunty 'Booey'.

Hope to see you soon.... Cheri

Yo Kevin, I'm loving reading your journal entries...this last one, being an
ordinary person doing your jaunt. HA! You are extra-ordinary because you allow your
passion to be realized. I love your words to encourage all that it's OK- and way fun- to
persue dreams. I'm glad you had a chance to see the Sunset Riders. Have fun meeting the
many amazing people throughout your journey! Love ya' Lynne

Good afternoon. I was pleased to be able to meet Kevin when he came up to the
Mayor's Office, in Regina on May 21. Also to be able to see his "road

it ran on May 22, 1999. I hope the journey is continuing to go well. Gordon Barnes,

May 22 - From : Laureen McPherson, Swift Current, SK
Hi! Seen you in front of the Library at Swift Current, now I wish I would've talked
to you but I did not as I don't know maybe a little shy, who knows but after reading your
history, was rather surprised. I lived In Weyburn, Saskatchewan for many years but as a
youngster grew up on a farm near the town of Tribune. It caught my eye when you said your
father was a United Church Minister, we had a Minister at our church who was a Reverand
Thomson, and I think his first name was Ken, but I could be wrong. He had boys, two I
think but I may be wrong. Was this your father or was he at the church in Weyburn. Our
family just moved here to Swift Current in October 1998, prior to that we lived in Weyburn
for many years. Anyway just found this interesting. Good luck with your run, and I admire
you for your bravery and sense of adventure. Laureen McPherson

Hello Kevin,Chris Mager is my brother and he suggested I send you a message. If you
need a place to say when you are in Winnipeg, please get back to me. If not I'll keep
track of your progress and look for you on June 11th. P.S. How far is the Roadrunner
ahead? And Chris says hi.
May 19 - From : Ron Sanderson, Vancouver, BC
Kevin, I hope you have reached Regina as planned today. Those winds on the prairies
can really wear one out, hopefully they are blowing the right way. I was born in Regina
and have lots of distant relatives in small towns along the "Transcanada". Say
hi! if you bump into one. As I think about what you must be going through on your long
run, a saying I once heard comes to mind "We don't live in the world, the world lives
in us". If that's the case, you are probably discovering it! You are an incredible
inspiration, good luck the rest of the way.
May 13 - From : The Roche Family, Medicine Hat, AB
Dear Kevin, We had Kraft Dinner tonight just like you had at the campsite, (except
we didn't put in any ketchup or sausage). I (Jordan) forgot what the flavor tasted like
because Mom wouldn't buy it for us for a long time...I hafta go have my bath now, Bye.
Sean's favorite poem about that thing called weather...its from Winnie the Pooh.
Wether the weather be cold
Or wether the weather be hot
We have the weather,
Whatever the weather,
Wether we like it or not!!
So there! Sean also has another joke for you. What is a toad's favorite drink?
This is Mom here - I forgot to say thanks for including us on your website, it's great to
be a part of this incredible journey. Ah yes, and shall I also express my gratitude to you
for re-introducing our boys to Kraft Dinner!? You see what an influence this Kevin is?
They know that athletic guys only eat healthy food, "so Mom it has to be healthy
'cause he eats it." Guess who had to go buy some today. Kevin, did you get stocked up
on your Stelth bars yet, or should we all start mailing you a handfull or two? Please keep
in touch, let us know if we can assist in any way. Really enjoy your literary style and
your humerous approach to life.
Bye for now, Jordan, Sean, Karen Roche.

May 12 - From : Jason Landry, Calgary, Alta
Hey Kevin, My girlfriend and I ran into you (not literally, of course) at the
ESSO gas station in Maple Creek, SK. I just wanted to wish you the best of luck and let
you know that we did find the Great Sand Hills. Unfortunately there were no postcrads so
we'll have to find a couple around here. Also, we have a couple photos that we'll upload
and email to you, just in case you're interested. Take care Kevin. Jason Landry
May 11 - From : Rick, Venice, California
Hi Kevin, My name is Rick & I live in Venice, Ca. I'v been following your
progress. GOOD JOB !!! Cool how yer doing it with the RoadRunner too, Great Idea. I'm
fighting Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma now, went thru 9 months of Chemo and am going to John Wayne
Cancer Institute now. I have one more "scheduled" treatment next week after 10
of them. I started running Ultra's after a few years of Marathons. I finished my 1st 100
Miler in Texas in February & am entered to run another one in Wi. in 25 days. You are
an Inspiration to me!!! I hope someday to run from Oregon to the Mexican Border to raise
money for Cancer Research. Just wanted to say Keep it Up, one step at a time...one day at
a time. Take care, Rick, Venice, Ca.
May 11 - From : Rochelle, Vancouver, BC
Hi Snowbound Kev ... After reading your latest journal entry, I won't even
begin talking about our weather! I had the pleasure of a 3-hour drive through the prairies
and rolling hills of Saskatchewan and Manitoba and the prevailing thought throughout my
entire drive was how amazing our country is! So I am glad to hear that you are enjoying
every kilometre of it, even if you are being snowed on. And from the westcoast, the Carpe
Demons dragonboat team says "hello and paddles up!" Love, rochelle
May 11 - From Fred & Yvette, Creston, BC
Hi Kevin! Keep it up! We are leaving Creston BC direction Montreal tomorrow,
and should catch up with you sometime before Regina. We will keep a bottle of white wine
on ice just for the occasion! See you soon! Fred & Yvette
May 11 - From Dean Hachey, Claremont, ON
Hey Buddy! I can't believe you're doing it!!! The Claremont Clan enjoys
your updates and hearing about your exploits as you visit the homes of innocent/unaware
Canadians. I am looking forward to your arrival in Orillia and joining you for a little
run with Mike for a few days! Cheers! The Claremont Mulweeny's
May 10 - From The Roche Family, Medicine Hat, AB
We, the Roche family, of Medicine Hat, AB, have had the great pleasure of visiting
with Coyote Kevin while he passed through this area. It was initially mind-boggling that
someone would be running across this nation without looking for donations to their charity
... now that I think of it, that's why we stopped Kevin. I tried to read his information
on the side of his contraption as we drove through the intersection but couldn't figure it
out. When he explained to us what he was doing, I was really impressed. Well our family
had an absolutly wonderful evening with your friend! My husband and I just shook our heads
after thinking "...can you believe this guy...??...what an incredible person he
is!" Kevin even helped me with an emergency situation, but that's another story. Now
that we have checked out the website, we have an even greater admiration for this fellow
and for all the supportive friends he left back home. Thank you, thank you all for the
work you have done and are doing to make this journey a success. A "chance"
encounter with Kevin has given our young boys a REAL hero to admire and emulate, and an
unforgetable friend. We keep you in our prayers. Sincerely Patrick (Pat) and Karen Roche
May 5 - From : Mark Durst, Newmarket, Ontario
Hi Kevin, I really enjoy and love your updates. It sounds like you were an
encouragement to the people of Taber in a time of need. I agree with your point of
mind before body. I would also add to that point Action before Emotion: in other
words as opposed to not running because you don't feel like it, just run. Wishing you the
best, Sincerely, Mark Durst
April 27 - From : Melanie, Somewhere in Europe!
I'm so happy things are going great for you. Somehow no matter what you do you make
it great. Got your message. Yes, I am in Europe. I wrote a couple of really neat songs.
One is called 'Blue can be bright" the other is "making magic" . hmm my
songs seem to be taking on a "kevin-ness" about them! love you dearly, melanie
April 27 - From : Mark Durst, Newmarket, Ontario
Dear Kevin, I am very proud of you. You are doing a great job, and your letter is
both educational and an inspiration to me. Thanks for sharing this experience with me.
Sincerely, Mark Durst PS .. When do you expect to be in Toronto, I need to start
training to do the one day run. (It feels so inadequate talking to a guy that does this
run every day)
April 26 - From : Rick Niceguy, Lethbridge, Alta
Hi Keven. I was the guy who passed u just west of Ft. Macleod & then turned
around to have a chat. What about the "orthotics from hell". What happenend
there & y? What's the reason for your run? All the best. God bless & protect you
from all harm, in Jesus Name.
April 26 - From : Kevin Roosdahl, Vancouver, BC
Congratulations Kevin! I found your website and I am fascinated and impressed.
You've done it! (rather, you are really doing it) Good luck and I will watch your
progress! Meep meep!
April 26 - From : Ron Herold, Vancouver, BC
Here's a little snippet of wisdom that I thought I would pass along to you.....a
herd of buffalo can move only as fast as the slowest buffalo. When the herd is hunted, it
is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection
is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group
keeps improving by the regular culling of the weakest members. In much the same way, the
human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of
alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but it naturally attacks the slowest and weakest
brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain
cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel
smarter after a few beers. This is indeed something which we always knew to be true isn't
it?....hope you're doing well, and remember, going across Canada is a huge and demanding
undertaking, so try to stay off your feet.....
April 23 - From : Karen Lavers, Charlottetown, PEI
Good luck Kevin from your friends in the City of Charlottetown "The Birthplace
of Canada" - Prince Edward Island. See you in Charlottetown. It is indeed a pleasure
to read your journal entry's - you are definitely enjoying your journey.
April 22 - From : Cathy Soderstrom, Cranbrook, BC
Kevin! What's been happenning, just read your note about the orthotics from hell.
That's aweful, but don't dispare. With the degree of demand you are placing on your feet,
perhaps they are especially sensitive to even slightest correction. Can you get access to
a dremel and ever so slightly grind the underneath to lower the amount of support in the
'golf ball area'.? The other possiblility is that over the past few days, your feet have
accommodated and everything is is starting to feel normal again. Any chance of you coming
back for a quick adjustment appointment? Just kidding. Unfortunately I can't drop
everything and join you. Let me know how it is going. I feel very responsible for the
well-being of your feet!
April 19 - From : christine weisheit, coquitlam, BC
Hi Kevin, I've been reading your journal entries and I'll be darned but each one
has brought me a tear of joy and a sense of pride in knowing you. Your an awesome
inspiration. Happy thoughts to you as the new hiking season is about to begin. We'll miss
April 19 - From : Clayton James Barber, Sparta, ON
Kevin I hope you had better weather there for your jourey today then what we had. I
am sorry this letter is not really exciting. As this is my first attempt at commuicating
with any body on the computor so if can find any humour in your body to laugh at this
message, as you can tell I'm not real smart at writing letters that don't say any think
YOURS TRULY JIM BARBER
April 17 - From : Cathy and Curt Soderstrom, Cranbrook, BC
Great to meet you. I trust your feet continue to feel better. If you 'run' into
problems along the way, do feel free to send me a message and I'll try and help out with
suggestions. My husband and I are enjoying the web sites and keeping updated.

Hey Elmer Fudd! (or is it the Count of Monte Crisco?) Hope you're feeling like a
little golden daffodil bursting forth in a glorious meadow filled with sunshine and
singing butterflies. Life has been busy here, but what else is new? Just wanted you to
know that I enjoy reading your journals and hearing how your trip is going. I look forward
to your next entry. Party in the Patio! Eileen
April 14 - From : Lea Thomson, Vancouver, BC
Hey Kev. The sun has been shining in Vancouver for some time. Life here is so
wonderful. Thinking of you often and thinking of my next adventure daily. Getting the gang

Dear Kevin, by now you should have your foot care 1.aid kit which you forgot in
Creston.We hope you did not miss it too badly! Good Luck! Fred & Yvette
April 13 - From : Shannon Wilde and Ken Strang, Saskatoon, SK
Hi Kevin! Ken told me about your great adventure. Because I'm more of a letter
writer than Ken he asked me to drop you a line. We wish you continued success and will be
looking in every once in a whille to see how you are doing. Shannon Wilde and Ken Strang
April 10 - From : Terry Rice, London, Ontario
Kevin, I sat beside your father (Ken) last night at a London Knights, OHL
playoff hockey game. Your father was so kind and just fun to be around. My friend Kelly
and I enjoyed his company...I can see where you get your "zest" for life.
Anyway, he informed me of your journey and this web site...and what a fantastic web site
it is. I just wanted to wish you all the best and thank-you for encouraging me to keep my
volume set at "unlimited". I will continue to follow your journey and lookout
for you when you're in the Toronto area. Truly inspired, Terry Rice, Dorchester, Ontario
April 9 - From : Susan Brown, The Running Room, Vancouver, BC
Hey Kevin, Just a few words on behalf of the running room gang. YOU GO BOY!!!! You
are truly an inspiration not only to all of us who are truly blessed with knowing you but
to all the folks you will cross paths with in your amazing adventure. Whenever I'm feeling
tired or unmotivated with my own triathlon training I click on to see how you are and how
you are feeling and and it gives me a kick in the pants and out the door I go. Keep
truckin' and remember you are in our thoughts. Thanks for being such an
inspiration. Kisses and Hugs, Susan and The Running Room gang.

April 6 - From : The Roberts, Prince George, BC
Hi Kevin: Just spoke with Rob and he said that you have arrived in Castlegar. Way
to go !!! Keep up the good work. Hopefully you don't get snowed on too much. We went
camping last weekend and we did get snowed on so we can appreciate it. We just want you to
say hello to Pam & Ray for us. We haven't seen or heard from them for quite sometime.
Good luck on the rest of your adventure Kevin.. Cheers, Deb & Jim & Kids and our

April 2 - From : Janine Tasaka, Vancouver, BC
Wow. AMAZING site! Kudos to you and your webmaster! My name is Janine Tasaka
and I'm a friend of Greg Sproule and Darryl Malby. Darryl told me that I must check out
your site as I am helping to organize a similar tour next year. We are just in the throws
of developing our web site and obtaining sponsors. On Feb 26, 1999, we are leaving
Vancouver on a 6 1/2 month cycling tour of North America. We are "Cycling for
Kindness" and as we ride into each of the 28 major cities, we will hold kindness
forums every Sunday where people will be able to share stories of kind acts, which we will
gather and ultimately produce a 'Cyclopedia of Kindness' book from people all over North
America. There are 3 people who will be cycling the entire ride and there are 6 of us
going along via van/motorhome to organize the city forums, coordinate the website and
correspondence, and just experience the experience.
We are so excited and your site and your personal journey has added a bit of inspirational
fuel. Just wanted to say thank you so much for the info (especially your journal entries
which really add a let's-live-vicariously-through-kevin type of element). Just wanted to
send you a quick note now, but hopefully you won't mind acting as a bit of a long-distance
mentor for us once the (gazillion) questions pop up! Take care and I'll be in touch again.
Stay safe, happy and free, Janine
March 31 - From : Hed'ster, Burnaby, BC
Oh my Stars Kevin! Its only been ONE week and here I sit missing you like crazy!

March 30 - From : Julie & Dan Glavind, Lancaster Pennsylvania, USA
Hi Kev, Just wanted to let you know we are keeping an eye on you and wish you lots
of love and laughter along the way. If you get lost and come South we are in Lancaster
Pennsylvania so drop in for a swim! There are quite a few Horse and buggies here so mind
where you step my friend. I figure by the time you reach your goal on the East Coast you
will have decided to pogo stick back to Vancouver via the States. Thinking of you, Julie
& Dan Glavind the old(not that old) Receptionist at Spectrum

Greetings Kevin: I received the mail already today in St. John's, Newfoundland, and
low and behold, two postcards. This brings the total to 8! I happened to be out of town
for the last few weeks and my boss (whose name is also Kevin) thought I was sending him
postcards of encouragement (Go Kevin Go). He also thinks his new petname (other than a few
swear words I call him at times) is Coyote Kevin. Oh well, I have now reclaimed the
mail ... my Kevin is depressed so I'm goin send him a postcard and continue to call him
Coyote Kevin. In the meantime, Kevin .... You Go!
March 29 - From : Lynne Mutrie, Vancouver, BC
Hey Kevin,Your passion is addicting! I'll be checking in often to send and receive

your energy with the rest of Canada. We know that you're up in the mountains now Kev - an
old wise man once said "When in danger or in doubt, run in circles, scream and

Hello Kevin, Today I picked up Vancouver Courier and saw you article. I think it is
great that you are running just for fun and adventure. I also hope that in few months I
can start running across BC for a good reason possibly peace/environment or just
fun:) I wish you all the best and hope that you find what you search for along the
way. I will check your site often to learn more about ultra distance running for any tips
that may help me as well. Good luck :)
