Well, if you haven’t have guessed, we made it to Calgary. Darren drove for
the first 500km (to Revelstoke). I almost only killed us once on the drive
(got distracted trying to cut off Darren’s feet with the power windows, the
car pulled left, the car went off the road, on the road, off the road and
back on the road).
We stopped in Lake Louise on the way, wandered down, took a couple pictures,
said "yes, this is a nice lake," and left 🙂 When we
arrived here (Carole’s house), and told that story it was pretty much agreed that that was
what they figured we would do. The ride was uneventful for the most part.
Pam slept, I dozed, read Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, and started
designing my help desk database system I’m going to start work on for my work
(and my final project for my school course. Yes, I know I’m a geek.
Anyway, got here, slept eventually. Today we went up to the dinosaur museum
in Tyrell, or Drumheller, I’m not sure which one. It was pretty interesting,
and warm… and flat, very flat. The one hill they have
(a minute hill btw), has one of those hill signs at the top. Darren and I
thought that was pretty amusing.
After getting back from Drumheller around 3, we headed into downtown, watched
a movie crew start filming something at the bank of Nova Scotia, (nice tie
Sept!), and headed back. Dinner at the Olde Spahgetti Factory, and Skipee
was forced to skip around the room. Pictures will be coming soon anyway.
So now, as I’m typing this up, everyone (almost everyone) is downstairs or
at the neighbors fire. Tomorrow night there will be a big do here, with
everyone from around here. It promises to be exciting anyway.
Now, I’m off to go back downstairs, talk a bit, drink another beer, and go
