Bucket List Ride
Age Is Just A Number
Small-town Manitoba may not be where big dreams typically start, but for Winkler resident Victor Enns, that’s where the adventure began. Invited by his son and daughter-in-law, Mike and Linda Enns, to take a “bucket list” motorcycle ride across Western Canada, this octogenarian didn’t let his age stop him. Other challenges almost did though, and the reader will enjoy a rollicking account of the ups and downs of this exhilarating venture.
In her comfortable and compelling style, Linda Enns invites you along on the journey. You will encounter a range of challenges including mechanical troubles with the bikes, curious encounters with troubled strangers, and the worry of the younger generation regarding the hardiness of their older travelling companion. You will also enjoy great beauty, the heritage of multi-generational love, delightful humour, and charming anecdotes.
While an entertaining Western Canada travelogue for tourists and motorcycle enthusiasts, this book goes far beyond that. It is an uplifting, moving account that will inspire readers who:
are facing life after the loss of a loved one;
have big dreams but the fears to match;
need a new perspective on age-related challenges;
want motivation to live a more positive life; or
could reach out with kindness to make someone’s “bucket list” a reality.
Bucket List Ride will engage all your senses as you enjoy the sights (mountains), sounds (650 Yamaha), tastes (ice-cream), smells (forest fires) and touch (group hugs) of this road-touring adventure. Enjoy the ride!
Linda Enns (nee Stoesz) was born in Steinbach, Manitoba. She spent her childhood in Kelowna, British Columbia and came back to the prairies, to Winkler, Manitoba as a teenager. She and her husband Mike raised their family in Morden, Manitoba and currently reside in St. Pierre-Jolys, Manitoba. Linda’s love of nature, adventure, motorcycling, family and God shine through in this story of an adventure that she says “was simply too wonderful not to share!” She is the proud grandma of three. The book is her first....but depending on what new adventures life takes her to, it may not be her last!
