5 Hours 1 way to Edmonton and then 1.5 to barrhead and then back on sunday.

Deb has to go see a Dr and I owe this Dr a ride in the car as he is an old friend.

BTW since we are heading out of town with the car this weekend, I decided to spend some time on looking into the stock filter box again.
With the heat gun and a nice round screwdriver handle I was able to mold the box enough so that it would fit.
It was hitting the longer fuel rails and just misses the fuel gauge.

just arrived in Great Falls, MT having survived Daphne misplacing her passport, heavy rain storm and aqua planing in Calgary, some chaos at the US border, a moose bounding across the highway, a State trooper warning that the GTS can haul so observe the 70mph limits but no ticket.

Were here until noonish tomorrow if anyone has any coffee time :)

Not sure about Luc and Bertrand,,,not real good remembering names sometimes...and I am pretty sure I did not sit or talk with them separately. Maybe they will let us know!

Edmonton is cool, I fly in there occasionally.

They have this huge set of steps that lets you down to the river. There is a jogging path on the other side of the river once you cross the bridge. I like to run about 5 km down the path, then turn around and go back to the hotel. The hotel we stay in is connected by tunnels to a local mall, so you can literally fly into Edmonton in the winter and wear...shorts!

Hah hah! I know that hotel. No, us cargo guys are "relegated" to The Sutton Place, about three blocks north and on the other side of the street. The Fairmont is right in front of the stairs down to the running path.

I prefer the Sutton since I don't have to wear a coat to get something to eat, just walk through the tunnel to the food court at the mall. That and there is a pretty good book store just west across the street.

Nice town!
