Touring Green - Blog 6: Manning Park to Hedley (May 21) 

The Closest I'll Ever Get To Hedley (The Rock Band)

Manning Park to Hedley brought its own challenges with down pours and having to grip the breaks so hard on a couple descents that walnuts would have barely survived the pressure. (For one thing… walnuts are under constant pressure in today’s society and why? They didn’t ask to be the easiest of cracking nuts… I mean sure peanuts are easier to crack open but we’re talking the easiest of the nutcracker realm. So why do they get attacked more and more each festive time of year? Save a walnut next time and crack a hazelnut… you’ll feel better about yourself and enjoy the small little nut that comes from the hard, almost unbreakable shell, even more.

Fun trivia about everyone’s favourite idol band: Hedley found their name because they saw a sign while passing the town that made it look like the whole town Hedley was for sale (in was just the gas station in the end and I didn’t see any sign of the legendary Hedley band putting anything back into the town that worked so hard to give them their great name).
