Two days worth of stuff to post again. The need for WIFI has become apparent as we delve into the north woods of Canada. Cities are almost non-existant and our phones dont' work great up here. Sure we have verizon with a data plan that covers canada and mexico, what they don't advertise is that they cut the speed to almost nothing once you go over a certain amount of data.
Yesterday was hammer down and hit some miles. We blasted from just over the border in Canada to Calgary Alberta. Sick of seeing the miles stack up it was time for a break. Our basic routine came to hand. Unhook the jeep, grab the dog, pack some water and head into the unknown.
We learned something in Calgary. These people like to run. Just runners... like everywhere. Bicyclists (who we hate) and walkers on their lunch breaks littered the downtown area. It's almost as if people were afraid to go to a party and have someone ask "where do you run?" and they wouldn't have an answer. So they go out and by the really stupid looking shirts with the arm sweatbands and then "run" at a pace slower than people walk. Then there's the damn people on bikes everywhere we go taking up the road who think they have an equal share to things. Well, you don't. Go bike on a bike path.
Tick tok. Tick tok. We gotta roll and get to Alaska before winter. Back to Roo and we hook up for our trip to Edmonton. Greeted by five lanes of traffic and the sweat inducing rush hour we make it to West Edmonton Mall. Cool place. Amusement park, water park and shopping all wrapped up into one money grabbing glob. We needed a book for our Alaska trip so we picked one up. Then it was off to crash at a truckstop for the night. Nothing like the sound of semi's to lull you to sleep.
