I probably wouldn't either, since you can order a lot of things online, but on occasion I do like to go in and get my fix!!Quote:

Just drove 1200 kilometers overnight through a snowstorm. Fun.

That's a long haul. Where to where?Quote:

By the time I hit Hinton I was exhausted so I crashed out in the car for a couple of hours, then hit Tim Hortons for some wake-up juice. Left the snow behind just outside Hinton and got into Edmonton without incident. Back to work on Monday. Suppose I'll be back up in northern BC.
CAA must have a medal for that.
The distance would have been easy, as I'm well used to that, but the snow made it difficult. At times it had the strange effect of making me think I was standing still when in fact I was doing 100km/h.
Well, soon be summer now. The grass is actually green on Vancouver Island, so we have something to look forward to in central Alberta.
That's quite a drive home Kevin!
If I'd had any sense I would have broken the trip and stayed in a hotel, but I'm comfortable with long distances so I decided to one-hit the trip. I had my wife and son in the car so my usual reckless behavior was out of the window. Their safety is my #1 priority.
