confused, angry

Are we there yet?

What was yesterday? Day... 5? That would make today Day 6. Well, the new trailer is working out just fine. In fact, our petrol economy went up staggeringly! The bad news is one of our tires has decided it would be fun to have a slow leak, so we're getting that fixed here in Fort Nelson. We're going as far South as we possibly can today. I think we're going to cross into Mountain Time, though, so we'll lose an hour. Oh, well. I wish we could make it to the border today, but there's simply no way. Tomorrow evening, though, we'll be back in the states.

Even making these posts is getting boring.

Well. That was Day Six. Thus far, our most successful day yet. We'll be blowing through Edmonton and Calgary tomorrow, and hoping to make the border crossing in the evening.

It was amazing how urban Alberta is by comparison to the other provinces we've seen. There was a sudden shift before Fort Nelson, and suddenly the landscape was farms and buildings. The U.S. has a lot of variety, so that should be a fun change, too. Pretty soon, it'll all be interstate.

I don't have even enough time to draw on this trip. It's bumming me out.
