It took me five beds in six nights to get to Alberta and back. By back, I mean the Lazy Dee Motel in Gull Lake, where I ran out of light, 7 or so hours southeast of Pigeon Lake (sw of Edmonton). I'd hoped to get to Herbert and that buffer--the old #1 highway--between CPR mainline and Hotel. You shake with trains passing.
Lying in room 3 at the Lazy Dee, I felt the train from straight down, bombing toward the bells. Not much sleep that night.
Hoping to see you on the Regina-Cancun flight on the 11th,
