Jul 15, 2018 - Ontario to Manitoba

I was on the road by 9:15 (had to find a place to hook up the car) and the way was not hard. Things even flattened out for a bit and I saw farms instead of pine and white birch trees. But the black pine came back along with some rolling hills and lots of tractor trailers and RVs today! It rained in the morning, making me realize that my travel days seem to be cloudy or rainy but my visiting days are beautiful! The bugs were cleaned off my windshield, but then the sun came out for the afternoon and so did the bugs! Things I want to note...

Jul 9, 2013 - Selkirk (MB) to West Hawk Lake (MB)

I awoke at 4:30 am. Megan had arranged for breakfast supplies to be delivered to the Selkirk Inn the previous night, so I had juice, oatmeal, yogurt, a banana and coffee in my room. I had planned to get a hot breakfast from the McDonald's next door, but it was still closed at 5:00 am.

Here, July 1 is the big party and fireworks day - for Canada Day, the day Canada became a country (not sure which year). Not uploading any photos today, since we're using a coffee shop internet connection & MIke will be done with his coffee soon! We're back on...

Sep 21, 2004 - Moose Jaw - Falcon Lake

This was another driving day, though we did get to look at Winnipeg for half an hour on our way through. This was a bit of a dissapointment after so many really stunning rivers and waterfalls in the rockies, as it was a slow moving brown river, with a really touristy set of shops. We swiftly moved on. On these big drives, we've been keeping ourselves entertained by doing a number of bus games. The most popular is bug bingo where we draw squares on the inside windscreen and pay 25 cents per square. The person with the biggest bug splat gets...
