Apr 13, 2018 - Home Sweet Home!

Home! There is nothing like it! And we woke up to snow....what is it with this Alberta weather? I much preferred the 35 C that I left behind in Vegas. Grrrrrrr The weather Gods had us leaving Lethbridge with snow falling yesterday when we left at 9:30 am. The trip home was no problem. We decided to take highway 36 which is a two way highway but there was light traffic and the roads were clear. Then highways 14 & 16 to come into Edmonton. There was no snow or rain along the way but there was snow in the ditches and as far as the eye could...

Dec 18, 2017 - Journey Home

We were up and had breakfast earlier than usual then checked out of the hotel and too a cab to the airport. We were in plenty of time and the check in was not open. We sat till it opened and lined up. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a higher class of seat. We sat in the lounge ill it was time to board. The plane was a little late in leaving, but we had a good flight with a meal on real plates and cutlery. AT Reykjavik we were directed to a gate. We were first there, but soon a crowd gathered and we stood past the time the plane should...

Jul 11, 2017 - Getting ready.....

Mel has packed and repacked the basement area of the rv many times! Not to be outdone, I have revised the cupboards inside a few times as well. Tomorrow Mel has an eye appointment to check on his last laser treatment (long story) in the morning and then we should be on the road. If not, stay tuned for possible updates such as DELAYED, CANCELLED, or ON TIME!

Jun 30, 2017 - Edmonton

Did a city tour today, then the Street Car ride a drive around the city. It's such a shame when you visit these towns and cities that the local government want to tear down all the old buildings and build a new shiny no character highrise. Why do they think it's what the people want! Riding the Street Car was a real treat - dates back to 1913 and has been totally restored. The Street Car named 'Melbourne' that use to run in Melbourne Australia will be running here in Edmonton for Canada Day. Wow, the celebration is huge here - but then it...

Jun 29, 2017 - Fort Edmonton Park

What a great representation of the by-gone era. From 1846 when the Fur Trade was in full swing through to the 1920's. We jumped aboard the steam engine 107 and headed to the Fort. Met a local guide who was very informative about how life was back then. Spent the day going through the shops and businesses - everything on display was in pristine condition and lovely to see. Had a great time!

Jun 29, 2017 - Alberta Aviation Museum ~ Edmonton

Lui was in HEAVEN! This museum was something he was looking forward but hadn't done much homework on it (I had and hoped that it would live up to my 'talking it up') and guess waht it EXCEEDED his expectations! All you aircraft lovers will like this entry - but I found the museum so well done and the volunteers who work there are great. :)

Jun 18, 2017 - Home Safe and summing up

We were up and had breakfast in the hotel then finished packing and loaded up the car and set off for the airport. It was pouring rain and looked just like when we arrived in Halifax. The flight had originally been around 2 pm and I had arranged to return the car at noon, but the flight was changed to 5:50 so we had a while to wait at the airport. We settled in to read and do puzzles while we waited. The flight left on time and was a good journey, arriving slightly early. Fiona was there to meet us and Darcy waited nearby with the car. We...

Jun 6, 2017 - Edmonton

After the long weekend of our mini Davis reunion we had a great time connecting with family members and meeting new family too. Lots of food and drink all was good. Tuesday we headed out in our truck as we left the trailer in Didsbury and Katie which Ron and Donna would take care of her. Cousin's Bob place was not really a good fit for the trailer. It took us about 2.5 hours and lives on the outskirts of Edmonton. That afternoon they drove us around their area and showed us around. On Wednesday we headed into Edmonton. The most scenic areas...

May 29, 2017 - 120th ST Edmonton

Who would have thought if you went to bed at 10 you would be up at 6am lol. Needless to say it was an 8am departure expecting to make Edmonton by 130pm. However due to 5 construction projects in Jasper we still made it by 3, wrong 4pm forgot about time change. Weather continues perfect for travelling and rig just hums going down the road. Gas hasn't made it under a buck yet but close at 1.02/liter. Trend continued today of a steady stream of rental class C's heading west, reminder don't buy an ex-rental they are driven they are a Ferrari....

May 28, 2017 - Long day driving

It was a long day in the car but we finally got past Edmonton. Stopped at the conservatory and went for a short walk. Mom said the flowers were beautiful. After Edmonton the wind just blew dad said miles per gallon 7.6. Had burgers at Baron burgers and Ona way saw a Trestle Bridge built in 1919 it was neat. Then we saw a fire in the distance, got to our campsite and four tanker planes Flew Over the Top. They were scooping water out of the lake and flying over the top of our Campground. It scared Abby really bad so we packed up and moved our...

Jan 24, 2017 - Wat Will We Eat in Asia?

For the past 6 months the kitchen table has been pre-occupied with planning for our upcoming trip to SE Asia. It has (periodically) been cleared off for dinner but, mostly, it's been used as a travel agency. There are very few hotel websites in Hanoi for example, that haven't been thoroughly examined. Mostly for photos of the only things that really matter: For me, what's on the breakfast buffet. For Debbie, what does the bathroom look like. Repeat that for each of the 13 different cities (or boats - much more on that later) that we'll be...

Dec 27, 2016 - The Adventure Begins

The day started with us taking the cats to the Cattery.. For some reason we could not find the parts for the carrying boxes except the door. Well of course that left us two options. 1. Drive each cat separately making two trips or 2. put Spidy cat in the box and hold Kitty coo. We chose option 2 although the kennel is closer than the last one we wanted to be home by 945 am to catch our ride. All the way to the kennel I kept praying that the cat would not throw up all over me in the car... Thankfully she didnt. We arrived home shortly...
