A father in Ontario, Canada is relieved, (and a little miffed) after a shakedown by Family and Children’s Services and the local police over his gun.
His – ahem – toy gun.
Editor’s Note: “Fatherhood On the Go” is the multi-part story of Remy Stevensen and his family. Please consider donating to this cause (DONATION DRIVE OVER) to make Remy’s ride a success!
On March 1st, my wife, two of our children and myself will be biking across the country. We will pack our bikes, get on an airplane courtesy of Alaskan Airlines here in Seattle, and fly to Long Beach California. My wife will be carrying supplies and I will be pulling the kids in a trailer made by Chariot, along with some gear and musical instruments. The Chariot has 5 point harnesses for the two kids, a roll cage, and leaf springs for suspension (No shaken babies in this family).
Our route will first bring us to Yuma, AZ then Phoenix, White Sands National Monument and on up to Omaha to see my wife’s brother. We then swing a little more north to see more family in Iowa. After Iowa, we head east and north up to Niagara Falls. I brought my oldest son to Niagara Falls when I was moving home after the military, so it will be nice to bring the youngest children there as well. The last leg of our tour will be for us to shoot east to Syracuse, through southern Vermont and New Hampshire to our destination; Bar Harbor, Maine.
We are going to ride two bicycles across the country to raise awareness and funds for Charity: Water, which is, in our personal opinions, an awesome charity.
