Oct 2, 2012 - Fort Dauphin Museum, Dauphin, Manitoba

Fort Dauphin – Manitoba, Canada Today, we took a tour of the Fort Dauphin Museum. First, we were greeted by docents dressed in period costumes and served tea and biscuits. Then we spent time exploring all the artifacts and buildings on the site. We highly recommend this museum to anyone who is in Dauphin. Fort Dauphin (1741 to 1830’s) is a fur trading post used by both the North West Company and the Hudson’s Bay Company. The Fort’s location was disputed for many years but in 1978 archaeologists found evidence confirming the location to a...

Jun 10, 2011 - Repairs and Telus roaming

So much for my shower. I had lit the water heater without turning on the main propane valve, so as soon as the propane in the lines was used up, it went out again. No hot shower for me!

Jun 28, 2008 - DAY 14 to Day 27

DAY 14 Today's plan; Cross over into Alberta. We leave for Alberta in good spirits, under sunny skies.

This is a pleasant drive through a farming country-side, by comparison. The grades are reasonable so the truck isn't labouring up long stretches. Mostly we're driving in drive, not overdrive, at 90 klicks at about 2200 rpm, which is not bad. Crossing...

Jun 26, 2007 - Boreal, Mills, No Views and Bear

On our second day of exploring we travelled on the main artery road through the park stopping at the various places of interest along the way and walking a number of the trails. The Boreal Trail took us deep into the boreal forest across marsh land and beautiful creeks but no wildlife in view!. The Kippens Mill trail was interesting as the trail took you around the site of an old lumber mill and village which had completely disappeared except for the interpretive panels and pasture land! Our final stop on the road was to climb the Agassiz...
