Helicopter wind monitor beside highway

Border patrol

Road construction..much needed!

Fish/game cleaning building at campground

Early start at 6:30 am. Not much in Brandon, Regina or Moose Jaw. Stopped for fuel and I gave clerk 20 dollar US for $1.90 coffee. Got back 20 dollar Canadian and 10 cents in change! (20 US= 22 Canadian) Stopped at Walmart in Regina. Hot dog buns only packaged as 12/bag (hot dogs same 8/bag). No beer/wine at Walmart. Lunch in camper in Moose Jaw at service station parking lot. Dropped back toward US on Canada 45 out of Swift Current. After Cadillac, rough road and rain made going tough. Border patrol made us give up limes and lemons even though these bought in US. Lots of rouad construction/delay before getting to Malta. Private campground with indoor pool and hot tub (extra charge) Nice laudry room and another building for hunters/fishermen to clean "catch". Neighbor camper with new fifth wheel he bought in Montana. He owns/farms 7000 acres in Saskatchewan. Bad year due to no rain (he was interested in where we ran thru rain!) He told us yellow fields along Canada 1 are canola . Plants form pod and seeds inside are processed for Canola oil. He did not know why diesel fuel is cheaper than gas along Canada 1.
