So, quick update on the bell.
Unfortunately getting it to Alabama was going to be obscenely expensive ($70) and anything less expensive wouldn't have made it in time. Due to the holiday weekend here in Canada even getting it from Alberta to Ontario was impossible in time.
So the bell will miss Barber this time around.
Seeing as the bell is in Canada already, I'm hijacking it for a very short side trip to Toronto if people don't mind
I'll take it for a post-Barber spin in Toronto and then send it on its way - is it going to New Zealand next?
