This second installment of the Cross-Canada Trike tour begins in the home of Deconstructing Dinner - Nelson, BC. Of greatest interest on this episode is the story of Darrick Hahn himself. Hahn grew up on a conventional dairy farm and like many young Canadians growing up on farms, Hahn left his rural community as a teenager and migrated into the city. Having most recently lived in Vancouver for the past two years, he came to recognize that the city life was far too removed from the earth and he is now heading back to the farm.
