We packed up and said goodbye to the Calgary folk. Bright and early we hopped back on the Trans Canada. Made a few stops on our way to Winnipeg. First, had a nice lunch in Swift Current and said hello to a fellow WESSTie.
We also stopped at Moose Jaw, just to get a picture of the moose.
Experienced Regina while we listened to Experience Regina. This only lasted for about 12 minutes as we didn’t stop in Regina and that song gets pretty annoying. The stereo in the car doesn’t have a audio input line so we’ve been burning cds the whole. So there is a cd with 6 copies of Experience Regina, just so we wouldn’t have to hit repeat.
After Regina, we just stuck to the trans canada and headed on to Manitoba. The drive from the ‘toban border to Winnipeg was mostly straight but very dark. Being BC boys, whenever we saw a large dark mass on the horizon we assumed it was a forest. Nope. It was just emptiness that had lighter clouds above it, giving the illusion of trees. Silly west coast kids. There’s no trees in the prairies.
Chez Marriott graciously hosted us in Winnipeg. We had a pretty chill night. Just a quick swim in the pool, a couple beers and warm beds.
After over 15 hours of driving and 1300 kilometres we were there.
Hang a steve. It’ll be steves for days
