Jul 4, 2011 - 4th of July

Today is the 4th of July, we had no Internet Service Saturday or Sunday. Yesterday and today a lot more straight roads, 50 miles without a turn, and thousands of acres of farm fields and windmills. Sunday afternoon we stopped at two different campgrounds with no vacancies, we stayed at a Wal-Mart in Regina Saskatchewan. There were dark clouds and thunder when we went inside the Wal-Mart, then it started hailing very heavy, we waited to go back to the camper. Today we drove to the town of Medicine Hat, Alberta, since leaving home we have...

Calgary and Beyond

Jun 6, 2011 - Medicine Hat

Destination: Medicine Hat, AB Mileage: 330 km Arrive: Sunday, June 5, 2011 Depart: Monday, June 6, 2011 Sunday, June 5 Found a lovely little golf course and RV park in Medicine Hat (Cottonwood Coulee Golf Course and RV Park) so decided to stop for the day and test our progress in the golf department. The golf course was beautiful, the golf was not, but you can’t have everything. It was very pleasant walking the course and the camping spot was green and very relaxing. Good call… Weather: sunny and warm

Canada & USA Journey

Jun 19, 2010 - Sunny Medicine Hat

We had heard that part of the Trans Canada Highway was closed passed Medicine Hat due to flooding. We expected we would be faced with a detour so we headed first to Medicine Hat and did a one night stop in order to break the journey. A As we had arrived early in Medicine Hat we enjoyed a walk in the sunshine on one of the local paths which had views over the South Saskatchewan River

May 5, 2010 - Calgary/Medicine Hat

The journey begins May 1st as I check out of the hotel, and catch the Red Arrow down to Calgary to meet Mom, Amber, Char-Lee, Locklan, and of course, James. They picked me up at the downtown station, and we stayed overnight in Calgary. Char-Lee got sick on the first night with strep throat. On Sunday, the kids went to the zoo, and I hung out with James in the car to watch the stuff. We drove back to Medicine Hat. On Monday, with two sick little kids, Amber was not able to drive me to Grandma's. And then we were hit with a spring snowstorm...

Nov 22, 2009 - Home Home on the Range

Well Folks That wraps up our trip and this will be the last entry. I added some friends that wanted to look at the journal. We arrived home safe and sound I am writing this at two in the morning as I woke up and can not sleep to to the time change. We had a wonderful and fairly uneventful trip and learned a new appreciation for our slow paced way of living. Hope this finds you all well and will talk to you soon

Sep 15, 2009 - To Medicine Hat

We thought we were so smart! We had the camper (mostly) loaded then had the brainwave to leave Gabriola on Sunday evening after dinner, so that we could be on the first ferry out of Duke Point in the morning. We slept at the head of the lineup at the Duke Point ferry terminal, although I use the term “slept” very loosely. From the time we parked and got into bed (around 11pm) until 4:15 am when the Terminal gates are opened, one huge semi-trailer truck after another growled into the lineup and ran its engine (for whatever reason, for...

Aug 22, 2009 - Dinosaur heaven

K - Visited Royal Tyrrell Dinosaur Museum in Drumheller, AB today. It was marvelous but on a Saturday, way too crowded. Tonight we are at Medicine Hat Camp Ground, a really nice municipal park with full hook ups. G – This museum would do Washington DC proud. Extremely well done and very extensive. Didn’t expect to find a display of this magnitude and quality in the Canadian Badlands! A “don’t miss” if you are ever in this area! Tyrrell Dinosaur Museum

Aug 11, 2009 - day 44

Day 44 I got up early at the campground in Canmore and took advantage of the shower. It was a pretty good sleep. My air mattres has sprung a leak but there is enough air in it in the morning that it doesn’t disturb me. I went into town and found the Starbucks. I skyped Marla and posted my blogs and then called Dustin. We had breakfast at a charming place up on the hill overlooking the valley. I spent about two hours with him talking about the trip and all of the opportunities available to young people with the desire for adventure and the...

Off to Alaska

Aug 1, 2009 - Winnipeg, Medicine Hat

A twelve hour and ten hour driving days in mostly sunny weather. A couple of rain storms in Ontario and Winnipeg were the worst of it. Really enjoying Stewart McLean on CBC Radio when we can get radio reception. We're working through our playlists on our ipods, and the boys have watched a couple of movies on my laptop. It is entertaining for me to hear them in the back seat giggling and laughing while watching Step Brothers. The trip odometer is over 13,000 kms. We have appreciated gaining back 4 hours as we head back to B.C. Had a great...

Jul 7, 2009 - On the road . . .

Day ONE: Tuesday we left Water Valley at about 8:15 a.m. and headed to the Wildhorse US Border Crossing just south of Cypress Hills. It was quite a long, (boring) ride, but had we gone through Lethbridge, we may have run into rain. We arrived at Havre (pronounced Haver),Montana at about 4:30 p.m. A total distance of 634 kms. We checked into the Best Western, and shed our five layers of clothing and went for a nice cold beer (or two) and a bite to eat. Day TWO: Wednesday, once we had our morning latte , we went on the Havre Beneath the...

Aug 12, 2008 - Yukon, British Columbia, Alberta

We may be out of Alaska, but we are still seeing great wildlife and beautiful scenery. We love being in Canada, and while it is VERY hot here compared to what we enjoyed in Alaska (72 degrees here!!) we are still having a good time. The lowest temperature we experienced on our trip was 33 degrees in interior Alaska one summer morning. We went through Jasper National Park and Banff National Park in Canada and they were amazing. Today we drove through Calgary which looks a lot like Oklahoma. We camped in Medicine Hat, Alberta. There was a...

Jul 7, 2008 - Regina to Medicine Hat

Sunday July 6 was spent at the gift opening that took place at Tanya’s and Kevin’s house in Balgonie. The weather was great as we all gathered outside for a BBQ and the gift opening. On Monday July 7 we proceed to head back to Calgary, driving as far as Medicine Hat for the day. It was quite a drive as we experienced strong westerly winds gusting to 60 kilometres per hour to about the Alberta border. We did arrive safe using a little more fuel than normal. Overall we were impressed with the way the 5er and our tow vehicle handled the strong...
