Motobloggers are a very cool unique group of people. When I started blogging in 2011 I had no idea it would lead me to meeting some very incredible people whom I am proud to call friend. I had a serendipitous meeting with Kathy aka ToadMama last Wednesday. She was up in Washington State visiting family. I am particularly thrilled that she came to Victoria to meet me! Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the day off, but she came anyway so we could have a bite to eat and chat. She has plenty of great adventures in Victoria and has done more sightseeing in my hometown than I have done in the 20+ years I've lived here.
All of the motoblogger meetings I've had have been due in large part to one man; Bob Leong or BobScoot. Bob reached out to most of us who followed his blog and created a family. Two years ago Bob passed while away on a trip of a lifetime and left a legacy of friendship and a little wooden scooter dubbed ScooterBob. This little wooden scooter has been on an epic journey with motobloggers across the world hosting him and chronicalling their adventures. Boy was I surprised when Kathy pulled him out of a carefully packed ToadMama bag. I was gobsmacked and had to regain my composure. We toasted Bob's memory and enjoyed each other's company, but alas the time flew past and it was time for Kathy to catch the Clipper.
I also have to say that BobScoot is still bringing the motoblogger community together and I know that he would be smiling and happy!
